@ chickastuff -- lol!
That's a good question. His physical look was much more Jeff Daniels but his talkativeness/neurotic energy was much more Jim Carey.
I let him know we were not a match (very gently) and we actually stayed in touch for awhile. He ended up in a relationship and then living with a woman a bit older than him, who had a place down near the beach.
I don't know what happened with the mobile dog grooming business, though.

Um...wha? I wonder if that works on other 20-somethings? This 40-something is
I said pretty much the same thing to a very young pup who wasn't taking no for an answer. We met in the bar in my building where I have work drinks weekly. The first thing he said to me was "No ring? You must be divorced because there is NO WAY someone hasn't taken THIS off the market."... hand gestures up and down my body.
I laughed and asked him if this line had ever worked. He tried to act all shocked - what line??
The second question I asked was how old he was. 22. Like born in 1991.
I said "Dude, I've been impervious to these lines since before you were born."
He STILL tries it on every single time I see him - we've had to move to a new watering hole!

I finally got one to stop when I told him I had a son his age
Your ex wanting to be friends is like asking a kidnapper to stay in touch when they let you go.
The type of fierce loyalty that I possess made me incapable of comprehending the level of disloyalty that he possessed

Finally found this thread -- it was on the last page and about to get bumped forever!
Most of my first dates lately have just been meh -- nothing great, but nothing to write about here, either.
Most WTF lately was probably the guy with whom I had not much in common, plus he was one of the most negative people I have ever met (possibly excluding XWH who has that crown.)
At the end of the night, he told me that he thought things were a little awkward (you think?) but that it takes several dates to know someone. Plus, since he doesn't have any friends, he'd really like to be mine. Desperate much? Even if I had been interested in a second date, that would have killed it.
I really need to get better at my pre-screening on OLD!
Me: BW, divorced, now fabulous and happy!
Married: 11 years, no kids

My most recent date "recently" ended his third marriage. His goal?? To get married again.
To each his own, but I am NOT getting married again ever. Seriously.
His follow up question: Since we are obviously looking for different "end games" did I see a FWB possibility?
I have no issues with FWB... but we would have to be FRIENDS!! Which in my mind takes longer than passion to develop.
Anyone surprised that I haven't heard from him since?
Me: 43, independent, happy, despite co-parenting with a lower muppet

I'm not even dating yet, but I was looking forward to meeting my best friend's cousin who sounded AMAZING. Divorced dad, so cute, and looking for a serious relationship according to my friend.
Unfortunately then I stumbled upon his OLD profile. And I immediately saw that he obviously forgot to tell his cousin/my friend that he is most certainly NOT looking for a serious relationship!
Then I had to go and tell my friend I was stalking her cousin on Match! Now she thinks we're both crazy.
It was all just very awkward!

I've only just dipped my toe in the OLD pool, and already got a weird message. He said hello, asked how are you? I replied, and asked how are you? lol... his response:

Some of the best of the worst of the OLD rouges gallery:
I received an angry diatribe for failing to respond to an intro message. Probably the longest string of curse words I'd ever seen I fully admit to being shallow enough to not EVER want to date an unemployed paranormal investigator.
Another OLD goodie was the gentleman looking for a woman who was willing to take medication to induce lactation so he could indulge his adult breastfeeding fetish. This is when I learned to never click links on OLD profiles. Somethings can't be unseen.
One of the most depressing was the guy who was old enough to be my grandfather who was looking for plus size women to model lingerie for him. In his profile he wore a dirty wife beater, and very clearly chose NOT to wear his dentures. He made it clear that I should be grateful for his interest making sure to tell me that "nobody else will want to touch your fat ass". ORLY?
Keep calm and carry on.
