Dating Disasters

Let me start off by saying that this is not a sad post. As some of you will testify, dating as a gay/bi/transgendered/transfigured (lol) etc makes for some horrible dating situations. Everything from people who still aren't comfortable with their sexuality having you jump out of windows from the fourth floor, naked to avoid being seen by their friends and neighbors. To those who are very comfortable with their sexuality having you jump out of windows from the fourth floor, naked to avoid their lover that they neglected to tell you about.

Well, I have been talking with a straight co-worker of mine who has been telling me about her life and dating. After listening to her for a while, I realized that breeders have their own issues and dating. Now, I have to admit, some of this was funny to me, actually both of us. She told me about this internet date where they were to meet for coffee. She was standing outside and saw the guy pull in. He pulled up to the curb and looked at her and drove right back out of the strip mall. The shade is that before she could get home, he had blocked her on the site. She then began telling me about how one guy had the nerve to tell her that she needed to do something about a little fat that is on her belly. Trust you me, she is by no means humongous. The shade is that the guy was under 5' 8" and was over 230 lbs and balding.

I began thinking about my worst date. I instantly knew that it was when I had met this guy back in Indiana when I was 19 years old. He lived out of town and invited me up. I wasn't going alone so I brought my half-brother (yes he was gay too) who was set up on a date by my date. We get there and it was ok until we got back to his place. My brother and I were thinking we were alone as double dates there until we heard noise upstairs. It was mine and and my brother's date sons upstairs playing together. Mind you we were just making out downstairs (not sex but close).
Then we go into the kitchen when I hear someone coming up from the garage. It was my date's wife. Oh yes, and she knew me by face, name and said that she knew I was here because my car was parked out front. That's right, that was my first time seeing or even knowing anything about her and she knew all of that about me. U-N-C-O-M-F-O-R-T-A-B-L-E!!!

So sound off, what was your worst dating disaster.

For those who like the original version of the song, here you go

Hmmmm, my worst dating experience would have to be when I first started datin/sexing guys. I remember the website was a male gay version of called

The guy was in Wayne, NJ and I logged on right after my morning jog. He said he was horny and he couldn't wait for a shower. I said okkkkk but i took a quick washoff and sped over to his house to do the damn thing. I got there and he said at the door that I was hands down sexy. i got up to his bedroom undressed and before I could drop trow, he was Jerkin off! I hopped on top of him and was rubbing him and kissing him etc but he was turned off. I said I'm leaving. I returned to my house and he said you coulda showered! I was like wtf! He said I wreaked from head to toe. I am like I don't think so... I went to my mom and asked her, do I smell (momma always gonna tell you) she said no! She politely said I don't smell like a bar of soap but you are far from stinking...

Oh well! That's my bad experience, the MoFo was smaller than the Caucasian stereotype!

Dating to me is frustrating, just when you think the person is normal...give him a couple of months, better yet a couple of weeks for his true colors to come out. I dated this guy who has 6 kids, yep, you heard it right, 6 kids from 6 different women. He definitely wasn't right for me, plus he was out of state. When I tried to break it off with him, well, he made it difficult. What did he do?
He figured out a way to go into my email account and emailed my male friends pretending that I was the one who emailed them. When two of my male friends called me one early morning asking what the hell is going on, I was confused and had no idea what they were talking about. I was totally shock and tried to find out in my sent folder what happened...but he had deleted any evidence and when I confronted him, he was nonchalant about it.
I know he did it. then almost a year went by without hearing from him and he tried to come back into the picture but I've ignored all his phone calls and emails. I felt so disgusted and turned off, no matter how hard he tried to apologize about it saying he couldn't picture me with anyone else.
