A few years ago I was set up on a blind date with a friend of a friend. We had been chatting for a few weeks on the phone texting each other so it wasn’t so daunting. This particular man wanted to meet me at my house but I said no and we met at a local pub in my town.





When we first got there he was acting very strange and as I’m quite a confident person I was just chatting away trying to stop the awkward silences! He only had the use of one arm which he hadn’t told me and this didn’t bother me at all. I told him I wish he could have told me before though as I’m not a horrible person, well I like to think I’m not!


We had a drink and we started talking about children. I have three children and he was telling me about his children who he doesn’t see much. I joked that I hoped he didn’t do anything to stop him seeing the children. Then he said umm yes I did! I won’t go into details but I was sitting there thinking RUN!


Anyway I finished my drink and was about to make my way home… on my own when he asked me to go to his car first. So I reluctantly went to where he had parked his car as it was on my way home anyway. He then went into the boot and took out a fake plastic rose for me as he had asked my favourite flower as we were texting. Then a bottle of my favourite perfume. Next out of the boot was a teddy bear with ‘I love you’ wrote on it. I told him I couldn’t accept any of these gifts as I didn’t really know him but he kept pushing them into my hands saying take them take them!! So I reluctantly took the gifts said goodbye .. no kissing! and headed home.


When I got home I remember him texting me non stop asking how the night had gone etc. I told him I didn’t really think we were suited which we really weren’t. Plus buying someone a teddy bear with I love you on it when you have never met that person before was abit worrying. He didn’t appreciate me saying I didn’t want things to go further.


Days and days of texts until he said right I’m going abroad soon and unless you tell me what I want to hear I won’t come back! I told him I didn’t want to be nasty but we weren’t going to be together so do whatever you want to.


Since that message I never heard from him again. Since then which was quite a while ago I’ve got a new phone number too .. just in case.
