6 months ago, I went out with a bird I met online on one of these freebie-Facebook-linked things.
She was a 10/10 in the looks and body department. ****ing hell, stunning. 8 years younger than me, so early-30's. Run her own cake making service, etc. We were getting on really well and having a great laugh about football (she supported Barnsley and knew her stuff, which was a refreshing change), hard rock music and electric guitars and amplifiers.
Then, for some reason, she went off on one for 5mins about her ex-Boyfriend. He had the temerity to have to go overseas on their "6-month anniversary" (is that a thing, now?!) of getting together. Feeling uncomfortable, I nodded and gave a hmmm and a nod. Cue full-psycho meltdown.
She'd ordered him to come back from some job interview in Copenhagen/Prague/****-Knows because she had told her Parents that they were coming over for dinner.
"Did you ask him if it was OK before arranging it?"
"No. But we had been together 6 months. He should have been there."
By now, I was starting to get scared by the glazed look in her eyes.
"So, did he leave you or something? Cheated?"
When the ex-Boyfriend didn't come home as ordered, she laughed at telling me how she ransacked his flat and sent his (and his Daughter's) 12 year old Dog to the Council Kennels as revenge.
I went to the toilet and legged it out of the window. ****ing psychopath who can do that to a Dog is beyond redemption. Last I read, in the local press, she had a restraining order placed against her for further damage to the ex-Boyfriend's property and stalking/threats against the Daughter outside her school
Is this the modern, vindictive thing that Women have become? After that experience, I'd be happy with another 4 years of being single, thanks!
