Enter Stage Left

I met him about 3 weeks ago on this dating site. Okay, don't laugh...

Bbpeoplemeet. Where the big and beautiful meet.


I decided to check it out because I figured guys would know what they were getting and I wouldn't have to hear the usual BS about how that guy thinks I'm cute for a big girl or that line they always use "I like big girls" - ugh, thanks for validating my existence.

So, yea...he sent me a message and out of the scores (yes, scores) of weirdos, guys blatantly looking for a hook-up and guys who were hella far (umm, why are you sending me a message if you're in Alabama?)....he was sweet, seemingly sincere and smart. He met each witty message I sent with one of his own until he asked for a way to contact me without having to log into that stupid site and I gave him my phone number.

He's 25. Has 1 son who is 17 months old. He and the mother of his child haven't been together for over a year citing they weren't really compatible but decided to keep things amicable for their child. He's a college grad whose recently lost his job and he's trying to find something in his field: computer engineering.

He called me some time Wednesday afternoon and I called him back last night. And...I like him. He has a sarcastic sense of humor. He called my section of Brooklyn ghetto and I challenged him on that because his section is not that much better. We spoke for an hour and a half.

He kept asking.."Why are you single?" in a way that there must be something wrong with me because I'm single. I explained to him that I've been dating my work lately.

We'll see how things go. For now, I'm not looking for anything life-changing...just good conversation and a few good dates.

I see nothing wrong with meeting anyone from online. I had the same experience with freaked out weirdos sending me messages. I hope he's a good egg, fingers crossed for you!
