Dangerous Dating Game

‘Yes, the market.’ She giggled on the telephone. ‘We can meet for a coffee and Pani Popo.’
I hid behind the hats; she looked older than on eHarmony.
Why has she brought friends along or are they her daughters?
This is awkward as I look nothing like my Internet profile, and I don’t like groups.
We agreed on an afternoon alone.
People say I am shy and lack self-esteem around women – acting strange.
Once I was taunted on a date – you are a freak!
In anger, I released the padlocks and threw her off the boat; she drowned.
What a pity.

  5. Every woman’s dating nightmare. James, sometimes the urge to shock needs to be reined in rather than given free rein.

  10. I don’t think that was really an overreaction, James, she did need to be taught some manners

  11. Ugh. Having been on the dating sites, you have dredged up some unpleasant encounters. Thankfully, I was always smart enough to stick to a public place and not run off to be thrown overboard!

  16. You never know. Be it a dating site, or other means. Look at how charming Ted Bundy was!

  17. Dear James,

    Tossing her overboard might have been a bit of an overreaction…on the other hand, maybe not. Good one.

    Shalom,

  20. Guys like that give all shy, awkward guys a bad name. He should have to add murderer to his dating profile to differentiate.

  21. Luckily, that woman looked older than she did on her profile and brought others with her. A narrow escape!

  22. Creepy James. The second half of the story seemed to accelerate – from the man feeling awkward to tossing the victim into the water. Reminded me of those men who want to control women and can’t regulate their anger !
