He then started reeling off names of people I'm friends with on Facebook, even though I hadn't told him my last name and we weren't Facebook friends!

I looked at him quizzically, and he said, "You need to change your pad before you go to bed — you could get TSS [toxic shock syndrome]." He proceeded to argue with me for a solid 10 minutes about whether or not I should change my pad.

His argument was that he was an EMT and has a sister, so he "knows all about these things." My argument was that I've had a vagina for 20 years.

Having to endure uncomfortable dates and awkward chit chat is just a small part of the process of finding "the one" – at least, that's what we tell ourselves (and our frustrated friends who are ready to throw in the towel and accept the fact that they will be forever alone).

Unfortunately, online dating seems to bring out the worst in people.

A couple of weeks later, totally out of the blue, he sent me a picture of a random woman's boobs.

Confused by this, I just sent back a question mark, and he then said, "Send more." I am not the kind of person to send pictures of myself to people, ever, so I politely declined his request.Though he almost moved in with her family, she caught him looking down the shirt of her 12-year-old daughter.She later found out that the pervert was awaiting a court hearing for sexually assaulting a child. After talking back and forth on a dating website with a guy, one woman decided to exchange Facebook information with him.He wasn't supposed to stay the night, but he lived 45 minutes away, it had snowed earlier, and I lived in a very rural area with a lot of hills and curves.So he decided he was going to stay that night instead of driving home.I dodged a bullet and will never trust dating online again. We began messaging, and he seemed like a nice person, so we exchanged numbers.
