- Jacob messages me on the site and says “you are super sexy”. I reply how nice that was to hear. We continue to message back and forth and later exchange numbers. I am always leary of super hot guys on these sites. For one, I am not a “hot guy” attractor. I’m just not. I usually do better with the nerds and I am more than ok with that. It’s not secret that I am not a super model in the least, so when an unusually attractive man reaches out, I am always suspicious. (again, an issue I’ll save for my therapist)
- We start texting. Jacob is a little bit more flirty than I am comfortable with so soon but I also realize that I have been quite the prude lately and figure it won’t hurt to try to be more open to compliments and flirting. Plus, he sent me a pic of himself through text and I’m not gonna lie….I was a sucker. He is a beautiful human.
- Because I am a typical girl (and do not even try to act like this is crazy – just because I am about to admit to it doesn’t make me crazy – honey every girl does her own research whether she admits it or not) I do a little Facebook research. I type in Jacob’s number in the search bar of Facebook and BAM, there he is. Jacob G. I pull up his Facebook profile to see that his profile picture was updated on 5/24. It’s a sweet pic of him and his little girl sitting on a 4-wheeler……….and on his hand is a wedding ring. Nice. Then, if you scroll further, you see another profile pic was posted on 5/23 of him with a beautiful woman (much prettier than I am for sure!). Sweet. IF, I am going to be open minded and give him the benefit of the doubt, that was three weeks ago so maybe he is NEWLY single.
- I text Jacob and say “so, do you have Facebook”. He replies “no”. Oh, interesting because I just found you on there. He explains it as his ex has his login info and must be posting it for him. He says he has it all cleared up now and do I see his profile anymore. Nope, sure don’t. Glad you got that fixed buddy.
- We talk on the phone briefly after work and he has to let me go to change his daughter’s diaper. He says he will call me back shortly. I text him and ask if we can talk later since I am cooking dinner and such. He says “yeah, text first though”…..hmmm, why’s that?
- We continue to text some and I try to call him later to which he explains he can’t talk because his daughter fell asleep on his chest. Oh. Ok.
- This morning bright and early he is texting me being all charming and such. But I just don’t trust him. So when I’m having coffee with a coworker and telling her about this situation, she pulls up her Facebook app on her phone and searches for him. Well, would you looky here…….there is hot Jacob’s profile. Sooooo, you basically just used my trick of putting in my phone number, finding my Facebook profile and blocking me. Genius. Except that I’m not dumb. I choose to “address” everything in reply to his “sad face” text when he asks if I am daydreaming about him and I say “no” 🙂 . I then send him this book of a text to which I have received no reply (and probably never will). I’m not even sure why I was even the least bit nice, but I felt like I was compared to what I was thinking. 🙂
I am beyond mad. Not for myself. I have thick skin. Be a douchebag to me, that’s fine, I’ll just blog about it. But how many women is he hitting on and flirting with that he is also clearly not being honest with? It’s just not necessary. Online dating is hard enough as it is without morons like yourself doing stupid and shady stuff such as this. And that girl in his profile pic…she is adorable. Does she even have a clue that he is on a dating site? Sure, women are crazy. But guys like you provoke it.
You Jacob, deserve a swift kick in the balls. I’m not sure if he has ever won any awards, but today, he takes the “Douchelord of the Day” award hands down.

Sadly, I was a former wife in the same position, and yes they are douchebags! It sucks being on the deceiving end of things like this…. So NO, you are not ever being to hard on them and calling them out! And yes it’s sad for other girls who don’t do their research and fall for the tool! I heard on the radio the other morning about a girl who was heart broken she loved this man (she lived in a diff state he traveled to for work) and she was called out by the wife she knew NOTHING about…. So sad!
But I’m glad u research!!
Have a great day!

I will not apologize for my research at all Riana 😉 After the abusive situation I got myself in, I can’t be too careful. A friend actually told me this morning that I wasn’t going to find a man this way if I blog about stuff like this. My response to that is that it’s perfectly ok if I don’t. Because I certainly don’t want to find one and get into a relationship with a lying dbag 😉
Andrea!!!! I miss you so much!!!! 🙂 You make me laugh!!!!
