Awkward – Part 852

1 Aug

The Universe LOVES watching me squirm..

I work in a predominantly female industry, in a corporate office.   Today at work, we had some fun activities going on for the employees, and I was in charge of an activity station for a half hour.  As people were coming and going, I noticed a familiar face headed in my direction.. except he was out of place.   This dude didn’t work with me,  this is a dude from OKCupid.

I kinda shrugged it off and thought to myself “Nah.. couldn’t be.. must be a look-alike.”  as the guy I had talked to online went to great detail months ago about his fabulous job and just how wonderful he was at it.   However,  when I had to request his name to check him in for the said event,  it became very clear, very quickly, this in fact was the same guy.  (I HATE my memory sometimes!)

When I got home from work, I looked up his profile, and it is definitely the same person.  I tried to find our previous conversations, but I had not kept them.   All I remember was for some reason or another, I wasn’t interested – and when he was informed of that he became one of those online dating babies who told me that I am probably fat or something along those lines,   and that I should stop being picky since I am obviously desperate.

I am not quite sure why I am absolutely mortified about this – most of my co-workers know I do the online dating thing – but I am.  I have no idea if he recognizes me, and I hope he doesn’t.

I am not online dating because I am desperate, I am online dating because it is hilarious…  but can it PLEASE stop being this kind of hilarious?!

    I’ve seen people offline whose profile’s I’ve looked at online. I always wonder if people recognize me offline.

    Did the guy remember you?

    One of my now friends was originally a guy who had messaged me on OkCupid. We were hanging out with a group of friends one night and he turned to me and went “Now I know why you look familiar! I messaged you on OkCupid but you never responded”. It was kind of awkward to be called out on that, but hilarious to everyone else there. Another guy that messaged me on there is actually the brother of one of my close friends, who I had yet to meet at the time. Upon receiving his originally message and checking out his profile, I recognized one or two of the photos as ones his brother had posted to facebook of an event they had attended together. So my response was something along the lines of “This is going to sound odd, but do you have a brother named __________”.

      I am very excited to be called out on not responding to someone in front of a large group, because obviously I have rules for responding – so it would TOTALLY go right back on them for saying “Hey How are you?” or “Hey lets have sex”
