Don’t Talk to Strangers

Although I haven’t had much time to date lately, I still continue to torture myself by connecting with people from lavalife.

I’ve been exchanging emails with one gentleman who seems like he’d at least be interesting company. After a week and about 6 messages back and forth, I finally suggested in my most recent correspondance that perhaps he’d like to meet this week for coffee or lunch.

His response?

Omigod… I just noticed now that you asked me about coffee or lunch at the end of your last note… and the answer is a definite yes, although I should temper that by at least mentioning my apprehension about meeting someone “from the internet”. πŸ˜›

Say it with me now…


He sent the first “smile” on lava, and the first lavamail, and the first email.

What did he think was going to happen? Why not just put in his profile that he’s looking for a freakin’ pen-pal?

le sigh.

    I loathe lavalife..some guy stalked me on there. I guess I set myself up for that one. Be careful, he could be crazy! Or maybe you like that sort of thing..hehe.

    AHAHHAHA! WIERDO! Standard fare on that site, I’m afraid. Remind me to tell you on Friday how I met a really cool guy recently, and it had nothing to do with online dating. πŸ™‚ I forgot to mention it last night…

    Generally, online dating is cool. Meeting a lot of people and dating with guys in the web is adventurous. But you must remind yourself everytime about certain limits and rules to observe while chatting with strangers. The web is plenty of surprises so always be prepared.

    Met lots of people from lava. I screened a lot and there were some weirdos. Not all were connections when we did meet and I have a few friends from it.

    I met a guy and we have been dating over 2 years.
