I don't like sports, bars or book clubs so I'm basically SOL. I mean sure, I can be abrasive, but some of the stuff I've heard about? Twice, they immediately sent me dick pics (one was even a dick video).One of the things keeping me sane at this point is the gym. This was despite the fact that we hadn't spoken about sex at all.If almost anyone pulled the same stunts in person, imagine how many indecent exposure charges there would be. I'm sorry that your experience has been as such my dear. Don't give up hope though, us good guys do still exist. What a slightly gross place the world would be though eh?
Don't be afraid to ask people out for coffee (OR TO DO MORE OF THING YOU' RE DOING).The third time, when I gave him my number I asked him to please not send me inappropriate pictures as I had had the conversation go immediately inappropriate as soon as I switched to texting when other pof people.He got offended that I admitted to talking to other guys, and we never spoke again So yeah.
