Potential date referring to two people on First Dates as 'bummers'

Convo with this guy on POF. Gone well so far. Just discussing our mutual enjoyment of First Dates and he says do I remember the episode when the 'two bummers ate the snail shells'.

So I said 'who did what?'.

He then changed it to 'the gay couple'.

That's strike 1 for him.

Surely he's out ?

narrow minded 7 homofobic comment, would be a red flag for me.

notyounanbread Mon 02-Jan-17 22:55:05

I'd say out!

No chance. Ditch. What a horrible thing to say.

Knob, move on. At least you can block and delete before you've invested too much time and energy.

Life's too short to deal with that shit.

Horrible, unacceptably homophobic comment. angry

Pollyanna9 Mon 02-Jan-17 23:03:13

That's what I thought. Convo progressed (I've got nothing else on) and he's just said if he was at the first dates hotel he'd have to throw his date in the pool.


If he did that to me I'd rip his head off.

Not that he's going to get the chance...

EverythingEverywhere1234 Mon 02-Jan-17 23:05:25

Strike one? Surely that's game over right there? hmm

marmitecrumpets Mon 02-Jan-17 23:06:07

Game over!

Pollyanna9 Mon 02-Jan-17 23:06:42

I can't believe how quick you all replied - you're fab!! I may need to keep you at hand for further adventures of Pollyanna's POF dating! There's sure to be more of this.

Pollyanna9 Mon 02-Jan-17 23:08:41

Calm down, calm down. I'm not a moron, I can see a red flag when it's waving at me and am quite capable of kicking this pillock to the kerb!

Just sharing the joys of online dating with you all.

So that's 40 minutes I'll never get back!!


Newbrummie Mon 02-Jan-17 23:09:48

Why is he single I wonder ?

FeckinCrutches Mon 02-Jan-17 23:11:03

I'd give you a game over for using the word 'Moron'

Pollyanna9 Mon 02-Jan-17 23:11:03

He seems to think the only reason you wouldn't want to be thrown in a swimming pool by your date would be because you can't swim...

He appears to have gone off in a huff. Maybe he's got a thing for throwing women into water I don't know. I hate all that sort of stuff - I'm not a teenager, I'm a 50 year old woman.

I am a laaaaady (no, I really am!).

Pollyanna9 Mon 02-Jan-17 23:12:38

He's only joking (about the chucking in the pool...).

I hate people who say one thing then are to scared to own it and try and pull it back and downplay what they said.

And I hate homophobes too.

AverageJosephine Mon 02-Jan-17 23:13:41

Oooh, yep. He'd be gone. No recovering from that.

Pollyanna9 Mon 02-Jan-17 23:16:03

Right, reset the counter to zero. Have another go tomorrow!

Night all!!!!!!

I must say my new Zero Tolerance Dating approach is rather refreshing grin.

PovertyPain Mon 02-Jan-17 23:18:18

Well considering you feel it's appropriate to explain that you're 'not a moron', I'd say you're a pretty good match.

FitnessFad Mon 02-Jan-17 23:22:41

What's wrong with the word moron??! Does it have another meaning I don't know about?

FeckinCrutches Mon 02-Jan-17 23:45:00

What do you think the meaning is? It's an offensive term for people with learning disabilities.
