Romantic Male Box - Sunday Morning Lunatic Edition

Over the past week, I had been emailing a 40-something fellow, with a possibility of meeting up. He seemed okay, but on his end, he shared far more intimate details than I did. It was a bit odd, but certainly not that unusual for a Craigslist posting.

On Wednesday, I asked him to provide a photo and I would send one in return. He said he didn't have his phone with him, so he would send one the next day. He didn't. The next day he asked if we could set up a day and time for a date. I said, okay, but I thought "no photo, no date, Jack".

We decided on Sunday at 7.On Friday I asked him once again to provide a pic. He wrote back one line: "You send one first and I'll return the favour. Thanks." At that point I decided screw you, I don't need this game. One thing I know about CL, if the guy doesn't happily send a photo, something is fishy. Usually, he's married. So I said I am suspicious of you and I am no longer interested in meeting.
Well...then I got a photo. He was not at all attractive to me, so I was kind of relieved that I'd already dropped out.

But then last night came the ranting. Did you know I am an evil person who only lures men over the internet with no intention of ever meeting them? I should inform Fancy Feast and Smoothie of this. I'm sure they have no idea I am such an evil fake.

But the best line was that he had shared intimate details and I had "electronically raped" him. Yikes! I'm an electronic rapist. Who knew? Should I register with the police? Electronically?

I ignored that rant but then this morning, he sent me the same rant again from a different email account. So I wrote back and said he had confirmed my suspicions that he was a drama queen and I was very glad that I had chosen not to meet him. know what I am now? A "scumbag". And I am NEVER to contact him AGAIN!
I'm glad I have a good nut job detector. (Well, except for FF, of course, but he's a safe nut job. He is a risk only to my wallet.)

all these years I've known you and I never suspected you were a scum-bag-electronic-rapist!

I kinda suspected...(but never said anything.)

Perhaps you can make amends by sending him Olive Bread.

I would also like to know what these intimate details were? And if they were that intimate, why was he sharing them with someone he didn't know? Count yourself lucky you didn't get a nudie shot of him...or did you???

He's a lonely middle-aged man.
Ooops, I just realized he's the same age as JAW Fan. I don't think I can say it that way, then.

Start again: He's a lonely YOUNG man.

No, sadly, it's true! I am a middle-aged man, with a back-problem, ever-increasing love handles, the early signs of jowls and a sagging butt, and grey hairs where there shouldn't even be hair!!!!

Hmmm, maybe I should put that description on Craig's list. I'm sure I will be able to lure tons of prospective clients.

Your prospects will be in the same condition as you are. That is a point to ponder.

A couple of weeks ago, I was looking in the bathroom mirror and the angle of the sun coming in gave me a definite jowl. I was horrified! What is my mother's face doing on my body?
