Caveat Emptor or Jdate: The Untold Story

2007-12-28T06:48:49.772-08:00

Author's introduction: the names and some details are changed to protect the innocent. There is slight embellishment but other then that – this is the untold truthCaveat Emptor or Jdate: The Untold StoryAt the age of 46, i find myself in the dating game. Divorced over 10 years ago and now dumped after an 9 year relationship with a man i was certain i would grow old with, here i am. After a couple of months of mourning and boring my friends silly with ranting and raving over the unceremonious way i was dumped, i picked up the pieces and looked around. Ok, i work 10 hours a day in high tech, two teenage boys at home, what are my prospects for finding a new mate? Slim to none......... So what do single women do? The answer was Jdate. I lurked in the Jdate forum for a few weeks, perusing the sea of available wonderful men (at least according to their profiles) and finally gathered the courage (and swallowed the pill of humiliation) to sign up for a subscription. 99 Nis per month seemed a small enough fee for everlasting happiness, right? And i plunged in, anxious to meet my 'bashert' (yiddish word for destiny). I had been 'single' before – right after my divorce. And had met latest and last (the dumper) easily enough. And yes, through another dating site that is, as far as i have been able to ascertain, now defunct. How long had it taken? Hmmm.... maybe a month? So when i set out in the Jdate world, I was certain that I would be happy and whole within a few short weeks. Little did I know what would be waiting for me.......I filled out my profile fastidiously. Didnt mince words. Told the truth about my age. My weight! Everything. Because if you read it on internet, it is Gospel, no? It has to be the truth because who would lie, right? My first date was an international business man, living a villa in Ramat Hasharon, who had a vineyard in the north of Israel. Master's degree. 54 years old. The picture on Jdate showed a good looking man. He sounded serious and impressive. We spoke on the phone a couple of times and I was already picturing myself touring the vineyard with him in the north of Israel, picking off the sweet grapes, hand in hand. In reality, the vineyard was a basement filled with wine bottles from some venture which had literally fermented. 54 years old was actually 60 years old. And the man was unemployed. Oh yea – the villa in Ramat Hasharon? A rental. And a delapidated one at that, in the wrong area of town. When confronted with all these untruths, the man was astounded that i was angriest about the lie with regard to his age. "Everyone on Jdate shades the truth about their age!!" Yea right. Everyone but me. And so ended my first experiment. My second date was with a man who had just come back from years of working in the States. Amir sounded sweet on the phone, excellent English, great sense of humor. Living in a nice apartment in Rishon. Working out of his home. He described himself as a bit stocky. Said he needed to lose about 20 lbs. I have always had a propensity toward men with pot bellies (yes I know it is a weird fetish) so I wasnt put off by the description. We spoke a few times on the phone and made plans to have coffee on Thursday evening in a small coffee house in my hometown of Raanana. I was looking forward to meeting Amir. I got to the coffeehouse exactly on time. I had been coached by my single friends to insist on a picture first but i pride myself on not being shallow and decide the hell with it. Amir sounded nice. How bad could it be? Well, add a 0 to the 20 lb overweight and you have it. Morbidly obese, belly hanging down to this thighs, walking slowly trying to move his weight along with sidewalk. I swallowed and put a nice smile on my face. Turns out that Amir lives with his mother because he is still trying to 'settle down' after living abroad for so long. Drives an old Subaru. And is looking for a job........ But at least he didnt lie about his age.I started getting a bit more street smart now. And[...]



Turning A Bad Date Around

2007-12-06T22:24:21.395-08:00

The following was written and submitted by Vicky Zhou who co-founded the website "Got A Crush" (details after the written article).Turning A Bad Date AroundYou were nervous going in, traffic kept you up so you showed up late and now you are fumbling with your words trying to think of things to say. No one likes the feeling of a bad date, nor do most people like being in a situation where it is obvious the person they are with is not enjoying themselves.Luckily, if you are smart about things and remain calm, there are some ways you can turn that bad date around and redeem yourself by nights end.Flat Out Apologize And Ask To Start OverSometimes if things are going very badly, you might just want to apologize for the rough start (this would be applicable say if you arrived late) and then ask if you could start over. Most people do realize that dating can be an intimidating process and if they are fairly interested in you from speaking with you before hand will be willing to 'start fresh' once again.Move The Date To A Different EnvironmentSometimes it's not so much that you and your date are having trouble with each other but more of an issue with the situation you are in. When this is the case, it's best to just pick the date up and move somewhere else.For example, if you are at a noisy event and can hardly hear each other over all the screaming that's taking place, go somewhere that's a little more intimate where you can actually have a decent conversation.Stop & BreatheOn some dates, the issue is solely with yourself. Maybe you have become so overly nervous that you just can't put together sentences or you can hardly look the other person in the eye. Whatever the case, stop and take a deep breath. Remind yourself that the person is here with you because they showed interest.Another way of looking at things that might help you to relax is to think of the situation as them needing to impress you. Obviously you don't want to act in such a way as to make them feel as though they are being interviewed, but being partially in this mindset will help take some of the pressure off yourself.Change Conversation Topics To Something You Are More Comfortable WithAt times the cause of a date going badly can be because of the conversation topics that were discussed. If there were things you either weren't comfortable discussing in the first place or things that you knew very little about, you might not have really said much at all.This could be leaving your date with the impression that you aren't all that friendly or aren't enjoying yourself, which again is not something you want to portray.At the next opportunity, take the initiative and change the conversation to something you do like to talk about. The simple fact that you feel more comfortable will improve your mood as well as the impression you give off.Ask More QuestionsMost people love to talk about themselves. So if your date is not going the way you'd like it to and you are getting the impression the other person is not enjoying themselves, start asking them more questions about their interests. As long as you are showing genuine interest most individuals will not have a problem discussing this.Bring In Outside HelpIf the date is going really poorly, you might want to consider bringing in outside help to improve the situation. Some type of small scale surprise is usually welcomed.For example, if you are eating in a restaurant, get up to go to the bathroom but instead talk to your server and get them to deliver a dessert to the table after clearing the plates. A small gesture such as this might help to lighten the mood and almost everyone loves sharing dessert.Re-frame Your MindIf you are already convinced that the date is ruined then likely there is going to be anything you can do to turn it around. Instead, try and reframe your mindset and focus on whatever few positive things have happened and then move forward from there. Take each moment as it comes and forget about the past.Try and smile more to give off a positive vibe and try and get your [...]



10 Simple Rules For Dating My Daughter

2007-12-04T03:30:29.945-08:00

The days of dating and then watching someone trying to take your daughter out. Well here are ten simple rules all fathers should print out and give out when a boy suddenly appears that does not belong in your family.10 Simple Rules For Dating My DaughterIf you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package, because you're sure not picking anything up.You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them. I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips. Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact, come off during the course of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a "barrier method" of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you. It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only word I need from you on this subject is "early." I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter. Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I will make you cry. As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her makeup, a process that can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car? The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places where there are no parents, policemen, or nuns within eyesight. Places where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka -- zipped up to her throat. Movies with a strong romantic or sexual theme are to be avoided; movies which features chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes are better. Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged, dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the all-knowing, merciless God of your universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres behind the house. Do not trifle with me. Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near Hanoi. When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit your car with both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear voice that you have br[...]

Evolution & Biology

2007-10-21T22:20:38.912-07:00

Ever wonder just what some of those differences are between male and female? What the true biological differences are? Well, the top scientists on Earth got together and made a list for us. They are seeking the genetic answers to these baffling questions and will be doing so for the next thousand years.Men are biologically incapable of letting a women light a barbecue.Men drive to a party, women drive back.Heterosexual women are not frightened by lesbians, whereas heterosexual men are terrified of homosexuals -- once they are pointed out to them, by women.Women do not replace tops on jars and tubes. Men put them on so tightly that they cannot be removed at all.Single-tasking men do one thing well at a time: (e.g. drink a cup of coffee.) In the same time a multitasking women can make breakfast, make the children's sandwiches, organize the window cleaner, phone the office, dress the children, write shopping list, iron a shirt and DE-flea the cat. Women have not yet realized this is an evolutionary disadvantage.Men warm their posteriors at the fire, women do not. Women's posteriors enable them to sit comfortably on the floor, men's do not.A man who regularly visits his mother is a mommy's boy. A women who does the same is a good daughter.A man who has no difficulty in undressing an adult women will nevertheless prove incapable of fitting a small child into a nightgown.A woman believes that visitors will be impressed by a clean house. A man believes that the visitors will be impressed with his large stereo system.Exactly the same haircut will cost $30 more for a woman than it will for a man.You can post your dating story on Dates Out Of Hell.

Always Have A Back-Up Plan!

2007-08-03T00:12:50.557-07:00

Some dates are unique. Others are full of warm memories. Others are good friends getting together. And the best date in the world is where you can make sure that if one woman does not work out, there is another one waiting on the sidelines.Beware of a friend trying to fix you up. There is a reason this person is in need.During my college days, my best friend Sharon and her boyfriend Barry and I hung out together all the time.Barry was always coming up with a friend to try to get me to go out with. Usually I thanked him but begged off. I finally agreed when he asked if I would just give John a chance. He was just dumped by his girlfriend and needed to go out and have some fun. We had plans for the weekend to catch the ferry from Boston to Nantucket. Paragon Park was a great place to spend a summer day. The park was across the street from the ocean and really was beautiful. What the hell, we would all go together, go on rides then spend the afternoon on the beach.We planned to meet at seven o'clock Saturday morning at the pier. Sharon had asked a few other friends to join us so I thought nothing of it when there were about twelve people when I arrived.Barry introduced me to John , we made usual, "nice to meet you" greetings then boarded the ferry. I asked John if he wanted to go on top deck , I love to watch the ocean and feel the breeze. He said sure, do you mind if Carrie joins us?Um, ok.I'm thinking "who's Carrie?" but figured she must have joined our group invited by Sharon.The ferry took about two hours and the day was just perfect. I had my swimsuit on under my tee shirt so I took off the tee and took advantage of the sun. John had been chatting up Carrie for a bit before he came to stand with me. I asked him what his favorite ride was, did he like roller coasters and such. He replied with "any ride that let's me sit next to that bikini top"Yeah, well that's a great idea and all but I just met him. Not sweeping me off my feet just yet.I put my tee back on, I felt a little creeped out. He didn't seem to like that and went back to the lower level of the ferry.I went down after a few minutes to be with the rest of the group. John and Carrie were with Sharon and Barry talking. When Barry noticed me, he bumped John's arm as if to let him know I was there.Now I'm wondering what the hell is going on. So, I took Barry aside and asked him what the deal was with John. He said "oh he is just shy. His girlfriend just left him. He likes you though, he said he loved your bikini."Finally the ferry docked and off we went. I asked John if he wanted to stay with the group or walk around on our own. He said we could go off on our own for a while and catch up later. We went on a few rides together, held hands for a while.When we decided to catch up with the others, we were holding hands. All of a sudden he let go and started walking ahead of me towards the others. Now I'm really thinking this guy has issues.The rest of the afternoon, we all stayed together and after a few hours we headed across to the beach. John and Carrie were walking ahead of all of us and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw him with his arm around her.I asked Barry " ok, now you have to tell me. What the hell is his problem? You wanted me to give him a chance, I gave him one. Now look at him."Now, I will let you in on why you should never let friends fix you up.He said "Cyrena, Carrie is the one who dumped John. I swear I didn't know she was coming with us today. She called John last night to tell him she was sorry. He didn't want to tell her about you and he didn't want to cancel with me in case things didn'twork out with Carrie."I laughed, really laughed. I figured screw him. I spent the rest of the time having fun with my friends. The ferry home we had a few drinks, danced and had great fun. John came over and [...]



Coke Cans & Sexual Allegory - What A Poetic Date!

2007-07-27T06:13:58.149-07:00

Ang from Nashville has entertained us with two previous stories - Bring a Hooker to Dinner With Your Date & Give The Poor Guy A Helping Hand. This woman certainly has had her share of men from hell! I must admit though, this one had me laughing and in shock. Ang, as your daughter said, "You Rock!".Anewly single girl that moves from Montana to Nashville, TN, is asking for a world of change. From wide open spaces to a million+ population. From riding horseback to road rage. Heck, it was like learning another language! I was nearly arrested the first time I was pulled over for speeding (Montana didn’t have a speed limit at the time, so habits die hard), because I couldn’t understand what the policeman was saying. When he said, “Pull up off on the side of the road,” I don’t believe I had ever heard so many prepositions used in such a short sentence. And after repeating it eight times in response to my “I’m sorry…what?!” it was clear that this member of the Village People was mildly irritated. At least my citation was evidence of that.But one thing Nashville DOES have that this Montana girl loves is SPORTS! When I arrived I was overwhelmed by the wonderful array of choices. Within the first month I called the universities and got their football schedules and was put on their mailing lists to be notified of games and events. One of the schools was MTSU in Murfreesboro. I gave the man (“Brad”) my name, address, phone number, and email address. Then he asked for my date of birth…odd…About a week later, Brad called me…TO CHAT! I thought that was strange and told him I couldn’t talk but thanks anyway. Then he called again a few days later, but he was a little smarter this time; he started by telling me about an upcoming sports event. Then Brad told me he looked just like Brad Pitt. I told him I didn’t think Brad Pitt was all that good-looking, but he assured me HE was. It was obvious that he was pining for a date, but I wasn’t biting. (Twice bitten, you know.) Brad called a few more times over the next month to let me know about events and talk about his good looks but I quickly brushed him off. Then one Sunday my phone rang.Brad: Hi! I’m in your neighborhood. I thought I’d drop by and say hi!(Remember, I gave this loony toon my address when I signed up for MTSU sports events. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid.)Ang: Absolutely not, and that is entirely inappropriate.Brad: Too late because I’m standing on your front porch.I held my hand over the phone while my daughter (who was nine at the time) and I ran to the door to make sure the deadbolt was in place. It was.Kate: What will you do, Mom?Ang: I don’t know. I’ll probably call the police.Brad: Are you there? Hello? Open up! I promise you’ll like me. I’m gorgeous!Gorgeous isn’t the point. Insanity is the point. Stalking is the point. But I remembered I had a peep hole on my door so I decided I’d take a look. Now before I describe what I saw, I must relate what Brad told ME about his enormously well bred looks. He had described himself in earlier (short) phone conversations and long, laborious emails as a Brad Pitt lookalike, a veritable Adonis, a walking time bomb of steamy sexual energy just waiting to be released on the unsuspecting female population. But really, none of that matters if Brad Pitt is a complete lunatic, right? I know some women would disagree, but I was really in no mood for lunatics—even gorgeous, steamy, running-amok lunatics.Kate sat on the stairs behind me while I peered out the peep hole. Then I turned back to her.Ang: Kate, if you were to take a bat and beat me about the head with it I’d still look better than what is standing on our porch right now.Kate: (Laughing) Open the door, Mom. Let’s take a look at him.Ang: Are you insane? He might be a murderer or something!Kate[...]
