Single moms for dating
Jim ended up being kind of boring in person — perfectly polite, a gentleman, but, I just didn’t feel any chemistry. Despite some big differences between us, like our politics for one thing, and his dirty sense of humor, I instantly liked him.
He wasn’t my usual “type” at all, which tends to be more artsy and progressive, but he made me laugh so much.
He refused to tell me what .00 was for, and then he told me that he expected me to be comfortable being tied up, because he wouldn’t have sex with women who wouldn’t be tied up. It was nice, he was not as attractive as his picture.
My friends and I still call him 'the serial killer.'""A guy I met on Tinder, who lives on my street, told me he knew where I lived from seeing me around. Then, he started messaging me about how in the '80s they found dead babies in the sewers where we lived.
When I lived in New York City, I tried Tinder briefly but didn’t feel it was the right fit for me.
However, I was willing to try the dating app again.
I ended up swiping right on a handful of guys (signaling to them that I was interested), and most of them were matches. He had a good job, was kind of a foodie, and really into sports. The next guy, “Mike,” was pretty cute, a single dad, divorced, and also a few years older than me.
I knew that the dating pool was small where I live, but I was still surprised that so many guys were interested in dating a single mom. We chatted for a while but it was taking him forever to ask me out. He had a good job, too, but what really impressed me was that he was a very accomplished athlete.
They made comments about my kids, which wouldn't have been creepy, except I realized that they had stalked me on social media and were commenting about photos I had posted. I honestly don't even want to talk about the guy who told me he wanted to tie me up and watch his wife "pleasure me." I was interested.'""A guy I had met through friends wanted to know if he could 'sleep on my couch.' We'd been on one date, and he lived almost an hour away.
