So last night was the date with "I only have my picture taken from a mile away" girl. I suppose I have no one to blame but myself for being disappointed. I asked her for a close up pic before we met, but she gave me a story about how her camera was broken and it coudn't take close ups. The truly sad part is that I believed her...that is until we met. Now I know why she took her pics from such a distance...she needed to be as far away from the lens to fit in the frame.

But it's one thing to take deceptive pics, it's another to flat out lie in your profile. She actually wrote she weighed 110. The only way that's true is if she's using a metric scale. I don't even mind if a woman has a little meat on her bones. I'm not into the super skinny anorexic women, but what about some truth in advertising? I understand we all embellish and fib in our profiles, but there has to be a limit. Women need to stop using “athletic” and “cuddly” interchangeably when describing their body types. They're not close enough in meaning to justify the lie.

I'm supposed to meet another online chick this afternoon for lunch. She was supposed to call me by 10 am to confirm. It's now close to noon and not so much as a call, email, or text message. This is after she cancelled on me twice before, both times claiming she was swamped at excuse I may have bought, if she weren't a gym teacher. Looks like my Sunday's wide open.

I hear you buddy. I went out Saturday night with a chick who swore she looked like Nicky Hilton and under those diner lights she looked more like Nick Nolte. They lie about their age too. I'm 47, looking to date a thirty-something woman and I keep getting these fifty-something women responding. Can't they just date sixty year old dudes like nature intended. Not for nothing, but whadda beast.

Maybe the gym teacher had a weekend dodgeball emergency. Gotta look at the glass half full.
