Plenty of Fish Twunts

(56 Posts)
Igetknockeddownbutgetupagain Sat 05-Jan-13 12:05:12

Have read a few threads lately where some have talked of twunts they met on Plenty of Fish. I have had some corkers, but as I am feeling properly shiteabout dating at the moment, I was wondering if others might feel like cheering me up by sharing their little diamonds.

Mine was the barrister called John, whose photos were years old I realised on meeting him, and the whole date was awkward as hell.
He suggested a second date. I quietly said I didn't feel there would be one. He walked off. He later text 'Bitch'

2 days later - 6am, he text that I'd taken the fucking piss, that next time I should get off my fat arse and buy some drinks. I wouldn't mind if I wasn't a size 8 and had offered to buy them, and he'd declined!!!!

It's been said before but these people aren't potential partners; they are anecdotes!

He sounds hateful, how any years ago were the pictures taken do you think? To be honest POF is a pretty nasty environment. Get out before you lose your sanity.

It's ok Cupid not POF but there are some very funny ones on here.

My best real life date was a man with no teeth, he was well aware that I'm a dentist and I was shocked he thought I'd kiss someone with no teeth.

He had not teeth but dentures or he didn't have his teeth in???!

I met a 99% match who instantly reminded me of my dear departed father shock I stood there, in January, in a boiling hot pub with hat, scarf, gloves, parka, sweating and wide-eyed, with a blizarre fight-or-flight feeling. Not his fault AT ALL but that turned into my tip-top online dating anecdote for a while.

No teeth, no dentures, I was 25. He'd led me to believe he was 35, he looked about 50.

I have lots more for later! I'm SO HAPPY as broke up with a scumbag on 2/1 and, cuz I can talk about dating without shrivelling into a mess of tears, means I am never, ever, ever getting back together with him.

Sorry to throw in a nice one but... I met my husband on plenty of fish and we are very happy and have been since we met... We have all the same interests and get on extreamly well. Just thought I would share that there must be some nice ones on there smile but agree I found a lot of crap before I met him... And rather alot of rude messages sent to me!

StuffezLaBouche Sat 05-Jan-13 14:09:43

Oh nooo, another website to waste an hour hooting at!

simbaandblue Sat 05-Jan-13 14:13:19

I have another nice story from POF, I am now happily married and expecting my first baby in 5 weeks and we met on POF! Although has to be said I did meet some horrors on there first (not in the flesh though, husband was the second one I met in real life).
Keep the faith ladies, there are some good ones out there!!!

niceupthedance Sat 05-Jan-13 14:18:47

Oh no, I am going on my first OD with someone from pof in an hour - terrified! At least I think he has his own teeth.

OP your barrister sounds like an absolute wanker.

kittykat10 Sat 05-Jan-13 14:25:58

i met my first ever bf of pof and he was lovely so they are out there. i have had a few disaster dates one we arranged 2 walk in the park he said bring along the dog so i did and she went for him lol end of date went for a hug and ud think id got fleas way he flinched, another one he didnt show but sent his brother as a replacement!

financialwizard Sat 05-Jan-13 14:40:11

I am another one who met my husband through POF. Six years down the line we have been married four years and have a three year old.

AKissIsNotAContract Sat 05-Jan-13 16:49:19

I met my fiancé on POF, you just have to persevere beyond the liars, the weirdos and the wankers. At least you'll get lots of funny stories to tell your mates.

HappyNewSkyebluesapphire Sat 05-Jan-13 23:35:16

I met a guy , we had been chatting, he said he had bad teeth... I said that didn't matter......

Met him and he had REALLY bad teeth... Most if them missing and what was left were brown and horrible, only one tooth at the front... Persevered with the date, he was good company but I couldn't bring myself to meet him again....

Only other messages have been from weirdos so far!

VelvetSpoon Sat 05-Jan-13 23:43:34

I've yet to receive a message from one normal bloke on POF, let alone meet one.

I am highly sceptical that there are any 30 something men on there in the South East who are not married, liars, vanishers (suggest/arrange a date then disappear beforehand), perverts, narcissists or just out and out tossers.

Did think I'd finally met a decent one last week. Was meant to be having dinner (2nd date) with him tonight, he cancelled at the 11th hour in favour of a date with someone else and gave a fake reason. Might mind less if he hadn't spent all week saying I was too good for him, out of his league etc etc.

Velvet that is such shitty behaviour. What a total twunt!

VelvetSpoon Sun 06-Jan-13 00:26:07

unfortunately there's a lot of it about. Well amongst the men I seem to encounter anyway!

flamingnorah Sun 06-Jan-13 00:31:15

The only ones i've chatted with are the fake profile guys haha had 3 of them now .
one still wants to chat despite not wanting toshow me his real picture but says he's very good looking and i would want him if i saw him !!
what a wanker hey !!

VelvetSpoon Sun 06-Jan-13 00:33:36

I forget the fake photo ones. Yes there's a few of them too.

I don't get the ones whose photos are a cartoon, or a scenic picture. Do women really reply? I wouldn't.

flamingnorah Sun 06-Jan-13 00:46:55

who were your fakes velvet ? i wonder if they were any the same haha

Spice17 Sun 06-Jan-13 10:42:48

My DM was on POF for a while. Met one guy for a date at a pub, he wouldn't get out of the car, so she briefly got in with him - being polite (I know, I know, told her off for that one, 54 years old and still a bit naive!) he then suggested they forget the drink go back to his for a shag, what a keeper eh?

Incidentally, she had various dates on there, had one brief relationship with a very stingy train spotter, with all the family a bit hmm not her type at all. She then started dating the guy she used to flirt with in the village shop when getting her morning paper and they're now married.

There is hope for us all <burstsintotears>

I might need a little bit of advice with this online dating thing. Been on OKCupid for about a week or so and have spoken to a few girls (a couple seem really nice) - but how long do you have to persevere with all this small talk before you can ask them out on a date?

I'm not really into all this text flirting nonsense. Much prefer meeting someone in person.
