Swing Dance Romeo

True bad date story ... met a guy thru newspaper personals. We meet at a restaurant that was next door to a dance hall. The guy shows up in FULL SWING DANCE REGALIA, white "zoot suit", wildly striped tie, wing tipped shoes and suspenders! He had a gap between his teeth that I could have parked a motor home in, and his glasses were as big as doughnuts, like from the 80s! As if that wasnt embarrassing enough, he pulls out a book titled "500 questions to ask on a date" and begins the inquisition. He then passes the book to me and expects me to find a question to ask him, to continue back and forth in this manner throughout dinner!

Needless to say, I declined his invitation to join him for swing dancing next door.

Don't Date Hobbits

I met Chris online, we chatted several times online and by phone he was very sweet and we agreed to meet. Big day finally came when he showed up at my apartment I was surprised to see he was not only significantly older than he said he was but significantly shorter... I only date guys who are taller than me being 5'0 that is never really an issue, until then. He was really short came up to my shoulder at best, hairy and old and reminded me more of a hobbit than the guy I saw in the pictures he sent (shots from the waist up, old pics of course). I really didn't want to go out now and told him "well you know what I am sorry but I don't think this is going to work out after all". He protested loudly I went back up to my apartment and he began to yell outside that we had a deal and I owed him a what deal? He then proceeded to take off his shoe and throw it at my window a couple of times while I hid out in my thankfully locked apartment.

Now I am with a guy who is 6'4" and keeps his shoes on.
