How I Spent My Friday Night

10 Mar

I spent Friday night rolling my eyes at a 22 year old kid messaging me on POF.  I was hanging out with a girlfriend, and we were having a good laugh over this kid.

I also wish I could tell you his username.. but I tend to like to protect the guilty.  But believe me when I say, it was funny.



“What’s up”

“Well, apparently I just shit myself.”   (I really expected this statement to scare him away.)

“Haha funny!  Any planstonight”


“We should get some booze and have a chill night

“Sounds good.. come on over.”

“My car broke down buying a new one tomorrow I’ll give you gas money”

He then proceeded to give me his home address, and although I cannot confirm this for sure – based on the area he lives in, he lives with Mom and Dad.   (You can’t live in a ritzy area and not have a spare car..)   Because I was insanely curious as to how far this would go, I gave him my phone number and told him to call me.  (Google Voice, for the win.)

He called, and I assume he was either stoned or drunk.  He asked what I was doing, and I told him I was in the car with my friend and we were headed to pick him up.   Somewhere, in the 5 minutes after suggesting I do as such, he made plans to go downtown with a friend.   We hung up the phone and he then immediately started texting me:

“send me pics”


“Y”   (I am not sure if this was to ask Why, or his way of saying Yes… I didn’t respond.)

“I wanna come but you have a friend over?”

“What do you think is going to happen if you come over?”

“Hang out have a few drinks”

“3some lol”

Aside from our interaction being quite humorous,  I did then tell him that I am far too old for him.  (I’m 28.)   He told me that age is just a number, and while I think that is a fair statement – it’s really a matter of having your shit together.

Those of you that read this who have your shit together will understand this sentiment..  the rest of you will understand someday.

    He’ll have his shit together 24 hours from his message to you, with his new car and his new life. Just be patient. He could be the one!

    You can’t scare 22 year old boys away. You have to beat them back physically.
