Creosote by the end of it, more bloated and uncomfortable than satiated, a little humiliated and thoroughly monstrous. And that’s when John’s email — the “wafer thin mint” that would blow the whole thing up — arrived.
I hadn’t messaged him or winked at him, posted a cute picture or anything.
I cringed a little internally — it seemed rather fast — but told him that if he was really interested in a monogamous, exclusive relationship, I’d be willing to give it a go.
So far, as I was given to understand, he considered me his girlfriend, “loved” me and wasn’t willing to commit to a monogamous, exclusive relationship.In the legal documents, Jesse reportedly asked the court to deny his estranged wife spousal support.Meanwhile, Jesse opened up on Footnotes For , a new visual accompaniment released by Jay-Z, as part of a series surrounding the rapper’s highly contested new album, .But having seen me looking, he’d emailed me out of the blue. My friends keep telling me everyone here is married, etc., so I’m rather nervous, but of course everyone’s profile makes them seem so reasonable and normal. It’s kind of weird concept, but I’m trying it because I work evenings, so except for weekends, the only place I ever really meet people is in bars, which is not necessarily that great a thing. Didn’t really have the right chemistry with any of them, though. When you meet someone in person, you know if you have chemistry. So you have to try to figure out if it’s worth pursuing with a date.Now I had my answer, really: while he was “so busy at work” and “with his sick brother,” too busy to see me more than once a week (if that) and too exhausted to call when he got off work after midnight, he had enough time to email any remotely interesting-seeming woman who snooped his profile. I am still very unsure of this whole online dating thing, and not completely committed to the concept. Naturally, I’ve written all of this and you’re probably a psycho killer. I’ve learned, too, that you should make the first “date” something totally quick and casual, i.e., get a coffee or a drink or something.And, had I not buried my self-respect at the bottle of the aforementioned bottle of Cabernet, I would’ve ended both the relationship and the interaction right there. Because if you don’t like the person that much, even a two-course dinner can seem like an eternity.
