Bad statistics of online dating
I went for a drink with a guy I had been chatting with online.
He seemed pretty normal (good job, intelligent, funny).
He then started reeling off names of people I'm friends with on Facebook, even though I hadn't told him my last name and we weren't Facebook friends!
I was incredibly freaked out and threatened to call the police, which scared him off.
His first question on sitting down with our drinks was whether I was up for anal.
I bypassed and watched him drink his body weight in shots before he started crying about his ex-girlfriend and then threw up down my shoulder when I was trying to walk him home.

After a few days of talking on Whats App, our conversation fizzled out, and we stopped talking.
I looked at him quizzically, and he said, "You need to change your pad before you go to bed — you could get TSS [toxic shock syndrome]." He proceeded to argue with me for a solid 10 minutes about whether or not I should change my pad.
His argument was that he was an EMT and has a sister, so he "knows all about these things." My argument was that I've had a vagina for 20 years.
I said, "Definitely not." A few minutes later he dropped something on the floor, and while retrieving it tried to put the toes of my crossed legs in his mouth. I met a guy on Ok Cupid, and we hit it off pretty well.
After we hung out a few times, he came over to my place with a bottle of wine and a movie.
