Dating Dos and Don’ts: Just Don’t Do This! Part 6

I’m not sure there could be anything worse than finding out the date you met on eHarmony was tried for murder.  I think that might just be the ultimate in horror stories.  For a man to be out there in the dating world and not fully divulging information that can easily be found online is a little scary.  It just goes to show that you need to be extra diligent in your online dating searches and keep yourself protected at all times.

• He had an unusual first name, and a relatively obscure profession, I found him pretty easily. I googled his name, and found a bunch of amazon wish lists and accounts on sci-fy nerd discussion boards. Hmm, I thought, not really my type, but I guess a love affair with superman isn’t THAT big a deal? So then I saw a link to a Vanity Fair article about the Menendez brothers. That’s weird, I thought, as I clicked. Turns out my potential online date murdered his father when he was a teenager, and as a cover up, had concocting a complicated plot involving foreign assassins. The plot was plausible enough to garner worldwide media attention after his father was killed. Of course, police eventually discovered it was my date who killed his father, he was tried for first degree murder, and defended by the attorney who went on to defend one or both of the Menendez brothers (hence his mention in the article). My date was ultimately convicted of involuntary manslaughter (his mother and sister testified that the father was a violent and sadistic abuser), and served no prison time. Eventually, his life led him to eharmony and to me.

• Pulled strings to get into a sold-out comedy show upon hearing that she was a fan of several of the performers. Opening act was a comic who did her entire routine about how shitty online dating is, and how all the dudes are big, fat losers who are gross. I probably would have laughed about it under normal circumstances, but my date was visibly horrified & embarrassed. That was the beginning of the end. When the act we came to see came on, they were much more … raw(? Blue?) than my date had expected. Turns out she was a fan of them only from tv, a medium in which they had sharply toned down their usual act. By that point, I just got drunk and laughed about it. After the show, we had a chilly “so that was different” conversation. After that, we never spoke or exchanged emails again.

After going through so many different dating experiences, as well as experiencing abusive relationships; and some great relationships, it has become my passion to share my knowledge and experience of dating with the world. I have always been great at flirting and attracting men; and many of my women friends have asked me how I do it. I’ve learned it comes from an inner confidence and a willingness to be open and free. By sharing my knowledge about dating, flirting and relationships I can help women create passion and love in their lives like they’ve never experienced before. -- Cindy Van Arnam
