Decent guy contacts me, no photo, but respectful, well educated, polite, I like his profile. I do notice he lists himself as "separated"...with no photo...alarm bell!
I respond to his email, since you never know, told him I needed a photo to go any further. He sends me one (to my dummy OLD email account...).
He asks if I want to go play tennis, because he is looking for "friends first".
I responded that I have enough friends, we aren't on the same place because I am ready to date. So...of course, me being me...I ask him why he wants "friends first".
His response? "Well, my ex and I will never get back together, she was cheating on me. We separated 6 weeks ago and I have my first meeting with the lawyer next week. My lawyer told me not to date. "
I told him that I wanted nothing to do with his situation, and stopped a little short of basically telling him what a stupid shit he was being on OLD at 6 weeks out.
Then he told me he was really looking to just talk to women, and could he contact me when his situation was better?
6 weeks. He hasn't even seen a lawyer yet and on OLD. Wow. That was a record for me.

Recently talked on line to a guy from OLD who wrote me about his situation; "we are separated and divorcing, but living in the same house" uh, no thanks! He keeps looking at my profile too...really guy, give yourself some time for your meal to settle before you jump in the on line dating swimming pool, you're going to get cramps!
I responded to his great email with, "Thank you for the email, but my kids tie me down needlessly. Good luck in your search."
Was I a bitch? I hope so.

After all, I have a life too, ya know.
I wouldn't listen to your lawyer. What does he know anyway? Heck, I just got out of a long-term relationship five days ago, and I think it's great to just jump right back on the horse. You never know when you'll miss your chance at a great catch."
Yeah, if I'm in the mood, sometimes I am quite the smartass. I amuse myself!
Thank goodness I'm not an OLD.....yet!

Please be aware of the guideline below.
NO POLITICS: We have zero tolerance of discussing politics here. No names, jokes, polls or debates are allowed. Violation of this guideline results in losing your profile.
My tolerance for stupid shit is getting less and less.
I like to cuddle, and intimacy are important to me.
