Can you top this?

I was out with friends last night and we were sharing some OLD horror stories.

My friend's new BF said that he met a woman once.  On the 2nd date he took her out for dinner and then when he drove her home, she invited him to stay overnight and then said they could start planning the wedding!  Since he wanted to get away from that craziness as fast as possible, he said he couldn't stay over cause he had to get home to his kids (which was true).  Then the next day he sent her a message that he didn't think they were a match and she called him to yell & swear at him.  That's kind of a lesson in how to scare a guy off.

But then my other friend had a story that I think won for the night.  She agreed to pick the guy up (big mistake there for someone you don't know), they went to the beach area to eat (which he didn't pay for), then he asked if she could drive by a storage place on the way back cause he had to get some stuff--because he had just gotten out of jail for child molestation!  That's when she told him to get out of her car and left him there.  

So my worst case scenario about talking to a guy who turned out to be a scammer wasn't even that big a deal after those.

Luckily I never met anyone truly scary/crazy. My worst was Yellow Tooth Man, the socially inept one with the bubba teeth who picked his teeth with a toothpick after lunch--at the table, for 10 minutes.

Nothing can top a child molester, but it's not only crazy women with marriage on their minds so soon. I once had a great first date with an attractive man with a good job and we had a very normal conversation. On the second date, the red flags emerged. He was tired from work so I picked him up at his business and had planned a picnic dinner on the beach. He tuned my radio to a country station without asking me what type of music I liked. After a 45 minute drive to the beach, he refused to get out of the car because he didn't want sand to blow into his food. After eating, he refused to get out of the car to walk on the beach because he was tired. Without ever having kissed me, a day later on the phone he asked when we were getting married. I laughed thinking he was joking. He said, "God loves a union." I have many more stories of other crazies but my hands would ache from the strain.

See I suppose this is why so many people in terms of old. tThere are some scary pple just waiting. Just joking. But seriously, I can't imagine going on a date with a child molester.
