The Lyin' King

(Another reprisal.  What can I say?  I have nothing new to report.)
The Lyin' King's name is "Blue Eyes Looking for You".

In the first paragraph of his profile he admits lying about his age. (What's the point if you're going to confess?)

He asked me out. I said I would agree if he changed his profile to reflect his real age. He did.

After making an "honest man of him" we met at Bandara restaurant in Corona Del Mar. I go there on dates.

The receptionists are beginning to look at me funny.

We met for drinks to test his theory that women want to kiss him after one Martini.

If you know anything about me KNOW I disproved that one.
He was very good looking.

It was one of those dates where the man tells you who he is as opposed to BEING who he reciting his biography. "I'm this, I'm that, I like walks on the beach".

He's a lawyer. I like lawyers. Really, I do.

When I returned home he called to say how much he enjoyed meeting me. He said I was warm (obviously doesn't know me) and attractive. Then today, at work, another email. He sent "virtual flowers" and expressed how lucky he felt to have met me. Then more...and MORE emails.  I had to return a call to the IT department.

"Your emails are congesting the network," said Fred.

"Shut up Fred," I demurely responded.

He's coming on strong...I like it. But I've learned not to get my hopes up. The minute I do...CRASH.

One of the first things he said was, "I was recently layed off".

Question: Is that a Red flag? I'd hate to be judged similarly.

Wait for round two.  The part where he asks me for a  job.

He looks kinda cute to me. Maybe you should practice making out with him.

Thanks pom. I think I'll take your advise. Our next date is Thursday night. I think we'll go to case you want to crash. :-)

Run, Charmaine,run. Far away and as fast as you can!

Charmaine said...

BP. You're a lawyer and I listened to you. He was a big scarey lier.

Since I have attorneys in the hood, I stepped away from this. Thanks for the warning baby girl.

Aren't you in love with the guy that doesn't treat you as well as we would like him too? We think you are worthy of more but the heart will love whomever it wants.

If he treats you like gold, then you'd make a great step mom.

Kids adapt. Plus, if life doesn't give them challenges, then they have nothing to talk about in therapy.

How come it seems like you are way to good looking for these guys?
