Okay, we all know the drill when it comes to being set up by your friends: It Sucks. Why? Because friends mean well but the truth is they are blinded by the fact that either (1) They’re in a happy relationship & want you to be in one with ANYONE regardless of your compatibility (2) They are friends with both you and the guy/girl so they don’t see their flaws and/or (3) They’re stupid.
Anyway, here’s what happened to me…
I’m out one night with my girlfriends and one of the girls, Suzy (who I’ve known for awhile but I’m not close to), starts telling all of us a story about a guy she met in a bar who asked for her number and immediately began sexting her and sending her dirty pictures. She then proceeded to show us all a picture of his penis (which was impressive, but not the point).
We all laughed at this guy and shook our heads at the fact that some perverts are just out of control. I then told the story about the guy who, when I didn’t answer his call, sent me a naked photo of himself IN TUBESOCKS. Smh. Then we forgot about the idiots of the world, had a few drinks, and met new idiots.
The next day, I received a text from Suzy.
“Hey, Jen, do you want to go on a date with that guy Adam I told you about?”
“Who’s Adam?” I asked, racking my brain, trying to remember if she told me about a guy, knowing full-well that there was NO WAY she was talking about the penis picture guy…right?
“You know, the one who sent that picture. I know that was a little extreme, but he really is very nice, and he was so sweet that night at the bar.”
Jaw. Dropped. Was this girl kidding? I’ve met her a few times over the years and she is very sweet so I wasn’t sure if she was just being naive or was making a joke or what.
“Suzy, he’s nice?! The guy is a sick pervert! Are you really serious right now? Thanks for thinking of me but I’m going to pass.”
“Well I just thought I’d try,” she wrote back.
So she was serious. So this is what my life has come to. Friends of friends are trying to set me up with guys who send them penis pictures. I believe a “FML” is called for.
Has a friend or acquaintance ever tried to set you up with a pervert? What did you say?
