28 It's a Joke

I have bad news.

On Thursday I told you I was going on a date this week. Six foot plus man had asked me out. His profile was nice, his photos were nice and the mails he had sent me were nice, so why not? Finally! A real date!

You could have come round to help me get ready if you'd wanted. I could even have filled you in on how it was going when he nipped off to the toilet. It would have been like you were there with me. We were all going on a date!

Then he sent me a text. A text containing a joke.

Now call me old-fashioned, but when you haven't actually met someone I'm not sure you should be sending jokes to them (or photos of your bits for that matter, but that's another story...)

It was one of two jokes I heard this weekend.

One was from my cousin's 4 year old, while the other was from my date.

One was...funny, while the other...was from my date.

One was...repeatable, while the other...was from my date.

One was... 'what do you call two robbers? Answer - a pair of knickers',
while the other...involved bonfires and muslims.

So we are now, no longer, all going on a date.

So far the dating website has provided me with old men, men who look like serial killers, men with stunted appendage growth and now racist men.

I'm going to ask for my money back.

Aww, don't give up yet. I know it can be disheartening to find out how many idiots there are out there, but there are nice guys too. Maybe you just need to try a different site? Try Guardian Soulmates - I've had the best dates from that one.

Thanks Tuppence! I've had a read of your blog and it's good to know I'm not alone - some of your online dating experiences sound very familiar!

hey there rapunzel. ive really enjoyed reading your blog (good idea for chic lit if you need the money...you should send an excerpt to a publisher.)
and.... im extra glad that you didnt entertain the ractist guy! as a muslim,im just... tired out at all the nastiness that gets spewed on us every day. and for the most part, i take it with a smile and s shrug. even though my smile is becoming rather brittle.
so... thanks *hugs*
