Lime Green PUMA's Won't Get You L.A.I.D.
Most recently, i completely restructured the team and inadvertently added a "wierdo"...? Let me explain. I met Green Shoes Larry on OKC, and we hit it off in the virtual world and so decided to meet. I arranged for a meet and greet by scheduling him between the gym. A word to the other online daters, always establish an end time when meeting someone for the first time. I arrived 15 minutes late to this meeting, which left me with 45 mins to "meet and greet" aka assess if this will be worth a real date. I always get anxiety before these things, will their head be bigger than i thought, will he be shorter (guys always lie about height), will they look anything like the awesome profile photo. Green Shoes in the flaterring lighting of the bar we met at,lived up to the my expectations and more. This was going well. Push forward 5 dates in and we have our first "day time date". This was when i start to realize all the things that had previously gone masked by jackets and dark lights. First, did he secretly have a belly that lay tucked away behind the leather jacket worn on all previous dates? Second, he expressed he couldn't focus and really talk to me while driving. Third, his tennis shoes were a rather dusty brown, and quite tattered, is this the look? I had noticed the tennis shoes before, but it was not until the daylight i had to question, so i said, "are those your favorite pair of shoes?". He said, "why, yes". I said, "they are over, don't you think it's time for a new pair?". At this point he told me he had been meaning to replace them. Phew. I thought. The very next day i receive a text from him saying, "cute?, with a photo of lime green PUMA's". WTF. Lime green puma's are to now be your everyday shoes. I tried to hold back. The next time we went out, he wore them, my thoughts, you aren't famous enough, wait, you are not famous, so no way can you be rocking lime green shoes just "cuz". This is when it dawned on me, OMG. I could be dating a wierdo. Ever had that moment? I ended up breaking it off with him, for lack of wanting to be dating "The Joker" and also because he kissed like a snake, in/out/in/out...LOL...word to the wise, notice the signs and don't be afraid to realize when you just might be with a wierdo and keep it moving.
