I’ve written before about my friend and I having the same guys reach out (or not) to us on dating sites. One of them was the 30 year-old whose shenanigans I’ve been promising to write down…I’m building the long list of stupid and/or mean stuff he’s said to me. But I just couldn’t resist sharing this incident, in advance of y’all knowing more about him. I will call him “P”. Because of his name and also because it’s the first letter in PRICK.
On Monday night, I had P over. This was after after-work drinks with my friend and a friend of hers. His plans had been cancelled and he asked me if we could hook up. The sex is good so I said sure, why not.
In the course of the post-coital conversation I mentioned to P that he had good taste because he had also reached out to a girlfriend of mine online. He’s only on one dating site so it narrowed it down. I think I said she was also 40 and may have vaguely mentioned she was in a much different business than I. He started asking me who it was – of course I wouldn’t tell him. We’d fool around and then he’d ask again. I finally told him to just forget it – that it was private and I wasn’t about to give him her “handle”.
Fast forward to the next day. My friend sends me a screen shot of her inbox… P hasn’t reached out to her since March 7**, and now there’s an email from him that says “Hi…what kind of business are you in”?
