When Online Dating Turns Sour
Have you ever tried online dating? Is it something you’d be willing to give a try? I don’t frown down on it, but if I weren’t married I’m not sure If I’d be brave enough to do it. I know weirdos exist everywhere; online, offline, among us, around us; they’re everywhere! But I personally wouldn’t want to put myself at what I perceive to be an even riskier position, by seeking someone online.
I know there are many success stories, but there are just as many if not more online dating horror stories. Take this story I just read in a newspaper; it just compounded my stance on online dating!
A man in East China allegedly met his dream woman online and was beyond excited to meet her in person. So excited was this man that he spent the equivalent of £5, 300 to fly across the country to go and meet his beloved. Even his friend’s attempt to warn him he may be wasting his money fell on deaf ears.
Sadly when he finally met her, the man felt that the woman was far from the same one he’d been fantasizing about all this time, the one in the pictures. To say he was disappointed would be the understatement of the year. The man allegedly felt the woman’s face was far chubbier than in the pictures he’d been sent. To add salt to injury, the woman’s face according to the man, was marred with unsightly acne!
The man is said to have flown at the woman, and punched her in the face. As the woman lay on the floor, he then pounced on her and proceeded to stomp on her. The pair were apprehended by the police, and later parted on cordial terms. They are both said to have concluded that online dating wasn’t for them after all. A truly bizarre story!
