He said it gave him sizeable loads without affecting his mood. I jokingly ask if he masturbated today. He says yes. I ask if he washed his hands. He hesitates. I smile and say bye, leaving his hand hanging out there. By the time I get home, he has deleted me from Tinder. I had to wake this kid up at noon and be like OK, I have to get ready for work, you need to leave.
So he started to get dressed and couldn't find one sock. HE ACCUSED ME OF STEALING IT. He searched through all my drawers and dumped out my dirty clothes hamper looking for it. I ended up finding it weeks later in my sock drawer. I kind of think he planted it there, but I'm not sure why. So he finally starts to leave and HIS CAR GOT TOWED because he parked exactly where I told him not to.
Looking back now I would've told him tough s, got him an Uber and went to work. But I took him to the car tow place so he could get it back. And of course he doesn't have his wallet. So I had to pay for it, and sign for it because he doesn't have an ID on him. BUT the car tow place DOESN'T TAKE CARDS so we had to go find an ATM to get cash. So he finally gets his car, I'm already like 30 minutes late to work, and he goes, 'Okay I'll call you later' and I just said 'Never talk to me again.
He texted a few hours later and said he lost the stylus for his phone. I blocked his number. Second date, he drove and then drank a LOT, seemingly on purpose so he wouldn't be able to drive home. I agreed, and he spent the whole night crying in my bed about how I was going to leave him.
I broke it off, he then looked up a performance I was in later that year in college and showed up. When the show ended, he waited around to say hi like friends and family do and then interrupted me while I greeted people to say 'SO THAT'S WHY YOU'VE BEEN SO BUSY' and then stormed out.
He drove 35 minutes, and sat through a minute play, for that. Place was filled with empty beer cans. Four, I kid you not, four rusty, hair-filled razors in the shower all were his — he lived alone. The sink was coated in hair and toothpaste.
I was so disturbed. Then he told me he had a suspended license and a kid he never met, and I high-tailed it home. He comments on me ordering pizza in an Italian restaurant. I don't often eat meat, only veggie thing was pizza. He comments on me eating pizza with knife and fork. He comments on me not wearing enough make-up only mascara, even though I wore zero make-up in profile pics.
I politely ask about his work. He explains what he does as if he's talking to a 4 year old, even though he knows I'm doing two master degrees and did Biology at my finals. Throughout the date [he] kept explaining stuff to me as if I'm in kindergarten.
Doesn't ask anything about me but long monologues about himself. I decline getting another drink and leave. Dodge his kiss and give him a peck on the cheek instead. On my way home I get a text asking if I'm sure I don't want a kiss. It was a 12 minute-long video about his MLM [multi-level marketing] vacation club that was 'totally not a pyramid scheme. Then he proceeded to explain why he was right about this and why it's not offensive when I told him that I did not appreciate his statement.
Then he told me about his years of psychological and physical abuse by his father, eventually culminating in him being stabbed by his father. He also suggested I listen to a couple of his favorite podcasts by a Trump-supporting, feminist-hating misogynist. On the way home I gave him a ride because it was cold out and I'm apparently a bleeding heart he asked me if I would go on a hour road trip that weekend with him which would have been our second date by the way.
Hard no. were you on the date we just had? When I stopped seeing him due to his clinginess and political leanings , his friends at work were apparently upset with my decision and one of them began to spread rumors that I'm sleeping with all my male friends. One of those friends has a long-term girlfriend, and she caught wind of these rumors.
It almost destroyed their relationship. We went to a bar for some drinks. She sobbed through most of the first half and pleaded that we leave at the intermission.
I paid for it, and she wanted to see it so damned bad — we were staying. He then told me I reminded him of his mother… Like it was a good thing. Just made a pile out of them on the restaurant table.
Trying to be nice, was also assuming it was going to be a girl. I tried to chip in money at both, but he insisted that he cover it all. SheKnows is a part of Penske Media Corporation.

But the manatee was actually dead, and the body ended up falling apart and she was covered in dead manatee slime and someone had to fish her out and clean her up. After some words of consolation from me about how fucked up that experience must have been, she told me she made it up, and every other story she had told me that night, because she likes making up stories.
