The Boyfriend Chronicles {Pt. 7: The Horror Before "The One"}

So, if you have been keeping up with Coffee&Glitter, I am sure you have seen one of my latest series "The Boyfriend Chronicles". Obviously, I have made it known that I adore John and we are like peanut butter and jelly, we just work together. However, I have had my fair share of dating stories especially due to the fact that I took the online dating option. So, I figured that it was only fair for me to share with you some horror stories...enjoy!

1. The "But Why" Man
It is so crazy to me how someone can portray themselves online as one type of person and then in person, be so SO totally different. So, this guy "Mike" and I were talking for about three weeks and he seemed very normal, we added each other on facebook and then we decided to meet in person. We decided to go see a movie then go to dinner. We saw Captain America.. the reason that after all of these years and movies that I remember that is because of this: during the whole movie, every scene, he the movie theater..not whispered, but full on peeve number 45059. "why is he wearing tights?", "why does he have a shield?" "why doesn't he have like a gun or something?""why did he give that look" I finally turned to him and said "you're being really loud"...shoulda left after the movie but, of course I kept our dinner plans. We walk down the street to a sushi place and sit down. I ask him what kind of sushi he likes and he says "why is it always cold?" I reply. "why do they play this music" I reply. "but why is it always in a case?" I reply. "why-" I had had enough so I said "so what how long have you worked at (business)? He completely ignored my question and asked "why did you put wasabi in your soy sauce?" before I could even answer, he asked another question..clearly he didn't want to hear what i had to say so I stopped talking...and he kept questioning. I was so annoyed. When we got the check, I stood up and waited for him to pay. As soon as we walked outside, I headed to my car-without even saying bye! 

2. The "You, Me and Her" Man
So, this gem, we will call  Kyle. Kyle and I talked online for a while actually and discovered that we had a lot in common so it seemed to start off great. Finally we were able to pick a date to meet for dinner. He insisted on picking me up (why Sarah...why would you say yes?!) and I gave in. So 7pm sharp he is outside...calling and texting me because I wasn't out there right away...I get down there at 7:05 and I am greeted with a "Tardiness is such a turn off for me".."uh ok, Hi to you too, sorry, I had to feed my dog." So anyways, we drive to the restaurant and the whole time he is talking to me, while driving and texting on his phone. We park and walk into the restaurant and sit down. While I am talking to him, he is still typing away...he's even texting while giving his order!!!! I am beyond annoyed at this point so I excuse myself and go to the restroom. When I get back, he seems annoyed so I ask if everything is okay and 
he says "Yeah ASHLEY, I just don't like sitting at the table by myself"
me: " name is Sarah" 
Kyle: "Oh Damn! I'm sorry sweetie I got you mixed up..haha!"
me: "because that's funny..."
Kyle: "Don't take offense you are cuter than her..maybe next time we can all go out"
WOAH I am sorry?! WHAT?! so as if that isn't bad enough.. it was now around 7:40 and we had just gotten our dinners and Kyle says "Do you think we could eat quickly? I have to have time to drop you off and pick up Ashley by 8:45"
I looked at him in such disbelief and said "forget it, I can find my own way home!" He had the audacity to say "Oh, great! I'll call you later and maybe we can meet up" What a sleezeball! 

Dating to me, is one of those painful things that I am so glad I will never doing again. Although these two stories are far from all the ones I have, these are what I will leave you with for now! 

Do you have any horror stories?


  1. WHOA what crazy people! Good thing you're done with the dating scene!

  2. Ughhhh online dating!!! I hated every minute of it. So many of the guys are totally loco. My friends and I would always let each other know when and where our dates were so we didn't end up the inspiration of some Lifetime movie lol. When I met my fiance Brian (we get married in less than 2 months ahhh!) I knew I would never have to deal with online dates again. Yay!!! Great post! Hope you can stop by my blog

  3. Haha I definitely have horror stories, except I think that the first stages of dating (the good guys) are some of my favorite times!

  4. Wow! Those were definitely bad dates and quite possibly not great people in the end. I was never "good" at dating, so my stories aren't so horrific. I do have relationship horror stories though, I suppose they're not all that different! I'm so glad I'm with my "the One", too! :)

  5. Oh MY! I'm DEFINITELY going to go back and read some of your prior stories! Dating is one of the hardest social things to do, I think!! - Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1

  6. Buahaha! I love reading these dating stories. I don't have any of my own so I have to live vicariously thru this blog!

  7. I LOVE reading dating horror stories! I don't know what it is about them. Maybe it's because I know my own have been horrid and it's confirmed I'm not alone.

  8. I have a few bad dates that in the past, but these guys suck! Lol Glad you were willing to share and give me a good laugh! At least dating is over for you now, right?

  9. Number one sounds like a two year old. But why?!?

  10. Oh em gee- online dating sounds exhausting! Cheers to that being over! Thanks for linking up with us! xo

  11. Haha wow this reminds me of my dating days. SO happy that's done! There are definitely great things about being single but I do not miss the terrible guys/dates!
