Oh, and did I mention he is way older than I thought. His profile said 33. Nope. Looks like a solid 38. He was talking about about how his 12 year old nephew plays Call of Duty and it is just the craziest thing. 'They kill people. They actually kill people. And he talks to his mates on a headset. It's just crazy'. I felt like I was talking to my Great Grandpap, who luckily doesn't read this blog so won't be offended :). He literally used the phrase 'back in my day'. Seriously?
So we got to the coffee place and we went through the drive thru. I think the plan was to hang out in Mooloolaba, but that got veto'd pretty quickly. He paid for my coffee which was very kind. So that was a plus! He did try very hard with conversation... he was just missing every time. He loves little dogs - I don't care for little dogs (in general people! don't get all offended), he loves American Idol and shows like that - I don't watch them because it is kind of painful, he loves Man vs. Food - I think it is a huge waste of food, He thinks the best country music is Keith Urban (obviously since Keith is an Aussie, but I don't contest that Keith is very good), Taylor Swift, and Scotty Mccreary - I think he has no clue what he is talking about.
Then he asked 'where to?' and I said 'honestly I think we should head back'. He has to watch his nephew later and I have studying to do. Well I mean I am in Uni.... there is always studying that can be done... and blogs that can be written. So on the way back he brought up about 27 more times that he used to play cricket professionally and he made all this money. I get it you played professional Cricket. You are very athletic. You made a ton of money. He said he didn't buy sports cars and stuff he invested in land. Also, he played in the UK. Sadly enough, while in the UK, his girlfriend died and he said he kind of lost his passion for the game. Then he told me his friend/agent/ manager cleaned out his bank accounts and ran off with his 'nestegg'. Also, his sponsors were all suddenly gone too. Oakley, Adidas....
Honestly, he seems like a relatively nice guy, but I feel like he lied to me... not exactly sure what all was truth and what was lie.
I mean if your Dad is poor why do you golf with him every weekend?
Golfing is expensive right?
You stopped playing cricket because your girlfriend died?
So when did the sponsors leave?
And when did the agent steal your money?
Why didn't you sue him?
Why did you lie about your age and use old pictures?
If you did invest why do you live with your sister?
If you played in the UK why would you have the yellow team Australia uniform? (which he mentioned previously)
If you have investments why did you have to sell you jeep for a $8000 loss to give your dad money?
In summary: he lives with his sister and loves Taylor Swift. This will never work.
A - Why can no one on online dating have their own place?!
B - T. Swift... really? :[
It just doesn't add up. I guess if anything it is good to know that online dating sucks all around the world. It is not a strictly American problem.
