Horrible internet dating experiences
I tried to stir the conversation to other topics, sadly he had a topic lock and loaded.“You know, I’m really into Eugenics”Motherfuc***.“I really would like to see a “perfect human being”, eugenics is amazing …”Being a rather left winged individual I quickly pointed out how that chain of thought often leads to extreme views, like, oh I dunno, Nazism? I remember how surreal it seemed, it was like I was an illustration in a book called “Things you should never say in a date or in life, you moron.”.This is literally the textbook example of “The worst thing you can probably say with your mouth”.“You do know how many people he killed, right?“But you know, not all Nazis were bad.”“Yeah, some of them deserted and some were dead, that’s as good as it gets.” I replied, still shocked.“No I mean like, you know the Angel of Death? ”I swear for the life of me I couldn’t be more shook.“He did awful things yeah… I hadn’t known this guy for more than 30 minutes and yet I was already filled with so much raw hatred towards him I could barely say a word.but he also helped a ton of people because he really helped the medicine community”What. I really couldn’t hear anything else so I texted a friend begging her to call me so I could pretend I had something scheduled and ditch him, sadly it took another 5 minutes for my friend to see the text.“You’re not possibly going to defend Salazar too, right?, but honestly I have so many of these stories I could write an entire book.The latest starts when I swiped right a guy a few months ago.I decided to learn Arab because I like niches very much.”After many, much self-indulgence he said “We’ve been no this date for hours but I haven’t learned anything about you…” NO SHIT MATE, I can’t even gasp for air without you telling me how amazing you are at breathing.Honestly even writing this I still feel pissed off because this guy was so hopelessly annoying and egoistical, It was one of those dates that made me feel like pummeling the guy’s face with punches and never look back.
But still I maintained my composure, I argued with myself that people building weapons are maybe a necessary evil to this evil world.
Even thought a biochemical weapon was definitely pushing the limits of a the moral event horizon.“That’s Cool” I said, in half-hearted manner.“Yeah, I really like to study how weapons affect people. I loved reading about how it hurted people, I heard children were burnt completely and their insides…”My instinct was immediately activated and I stopped him there. A questioned popped in my mind “why did he mention children specifically? ” but I had no intention to get an answer.“I’m sorry” he replied “I have a morbid sense of humor.” That’s not morbid, that’s downright sadistic.
This was the first 15 minutes of the date, so leaving at that point didn’t really feel like an option, I felt like I was stuck in a social etiquette cage, so I tried to change the subject, but things just went downhill from there. My soul probably left my body in shock for a few seconds because I can’t even remember clearly what his arguments were.
After a few minutes of angry/awkward silence my friend called, finally, I pretended she was telling me to go somewhere, much to her confusion. On my way home I swear to God I was looking over my shoulder the entire time to make sure I wasn’t being followed.
I literally never felt so disgusted at someone else, not even that time a guy nearly forced me to kiss him twice, this was something completely unprecedented to me.
