Here’s an interesting short one that I connected with on the online dating site, Clover. I connect with many women on these dating sites, but rarely do we actually meet up. I could press and make it happen, but most of the time I’ve found that it’s a waste of time. The majority of women on these sites are just boring people that I end up buying drinks for. If they were better and more interesting people, they’d be in a meaningful relationship by now. (What does that say about me?) That or they would’ve simply given up and settled into grinding mediocrity like most people I know.
But occasionally one comes along on one of these sites that seems so nuts I have to showcase her insanity for your entertainment.
Alright. Let’s start with her profile.
26 / Female / Straight
Serious Relationships Only, Fitness Singles, 90’s Babies
That’s it. That’s all her profile says. There are 3 pics and nothing more. We matched because I just swipe right on everyone on Clover to hopefully meet some quality people.
Here is the conversation that ensued after we matched. It went on over the course of several days.
Tammy: “Hi, You have kids?”
Me: “1 daughter, 20.”
Tammy: “Wow. Where is her mom?”
Me: “She lives in New Jersey. Daughter lives with me.”
Tammy: “Wow. What happened to her mom?”
Me: “We divorced back in 2001 and once my daughter turned 18 she was out of that hell too.”
Tammy: “Well. She still see her mom? You want more kids?”
Me: “She does occasionally and no I don’t want anymore children.”
Tammy: Why? You don’t want to have any with me? I know you want one with me.”
Me: “What makes you say that?”
Tammy: “I know you want one with me, you hide it.”
Me: “Really? Well tell me a little more about yourself, Tammy.”
Tammy: “I’m a 26 year old female. 5’4″ tall. 120 lbs. I am working at TJ Maxx processing shoes.”
Me: “What do you like to do in your free time?”
Tammy: Play Wii on TV, do puzzles and watch movies and walking and shopping and cooking.”
Me: “You seem nice. What prompted you to swipe right on my profile?”
Tammy: “I want a long time relationship and to have kids.”
Me: Have you ever been married?”
Tammy: “No. I want to be married to you.”
A day goes by…
Tammy: “Why aren’t you talking to me?”
Me: “Because I’m at work.”
Tammy: “Oh, ok.”
Me: “Have you been on many dates on this site?”
Tammy: “Ok. I want to be with you.”
Me: “We should meet up and go on a date then.”
Tammy: “I will tell you when I’m free.”
And I never heard from her again. She also blocked me for some reason. I hope you can all imagine how heartbroken I was to find out I would never have the opportunity to marry and have children with this mentally challenged stranger that lives 80 miles away from me in New Jersey.
