The Crazy R-rated Texting of Dating These Days

Ok so a little background before I get to my point… Last week as I started on this new dating site, one that I have used in the past years as well, I had a lot of interested men pop up. I also had a few I had contacted myself deciding to just jump in there. In the men who contacted me there was one I will call D who I went ahead and gave my number to because I have Spring and it is easy enough for me to just hop online and block anyone.

Hot Dawg!!

As I mentioned in an earlier post,  I had met someone on, and  things were going along pretty well with M and myself.  I was amazed at how much we had in common.  We both liked sauerkraut on our hot dogs and anchovies on our pizzas.  I felt like from there we were pretty much home free.  We had found our soul mates!  I mean really, how weird is it to find someone who likes anchovies on their pizza?  A lot of Domino's don't even offer anchovies on their pizzas.  So...obviously we were meant to be together and nothing could stop us now....more
