There’s this guy I first met online over a month ago. We exchanged several messages and he seemed like someone I might like. Then he disappeared (Completely. He hid his profile. I figured he met someone.). And then, over the weekend, I got a new message from him. He apologized for disappearing so abruptly and said that it was because work had gotten overwhelming.
At the end of the message he gave me his real world email. Which led me to his website and all kinds of information about him that I really don’t need prior to us meeting. I like to get a little info about a guy beforehand. You know, due diligence. But I don’t want to know EVERYTHING about him before we meet. I mean, if I read his blog and see his facebook page and check out his Twitter stream, it makes the first date kinda awkward. That’s just too much information to have about a complete stranger. Plus, it doesn’t leave you much to talk about on the date (I can’t pretend to not know things that I know).
Speaking of which, I had to laugh when I saw this:
