No it's not a typo.... and I'm not talking about a tootsie roll pop. Wish I was.
How many lies does it take to get to the center of the truth?
In my latest blogs I have been asking the questions about some concerns I had about my dating again, remember me?
But what has occurred over the last few days has become very interesting as this dating "scenario" continued to play out.
Where do I start....? I just began dating this guy, we’ll call “S” a little over a week ago. We went out twice and already had plans for a third and even a fourth date. I have mentioned him on my blog page when I was so glad I painted my toenails for him. Well after being inspired by another single mom and her finding out that her recent potential dating companion was listed on the national registered sex offenders list, I started investigating a little more information online because something wasn't adding up with "S."
Sparing you the whole story I will just say the good news is, "S" is not on the registered sex offenders list. The bad news is, I found his high school info and realized he lied to me about his age - by about 6 or 8 years. Furthermore, when I confronted him - he still denied it, repeatedly - to the point that when he knew what I had found online he claimed it was someone else and insisted that he graduated in 87. So then I asked - "Then what year were you born?" He answered 1972. So that means he graduated at the age of 15! Well that's when he just got off the phone because he realized he's terrible at lying and not so good at math either.
When he knew it was over, the next day, I texted him that it wasn't the age that mattered to me but it was his dishonesty. Going back and forth he stated that he wonders if I could ever trust him again. It would take a great deal for me to trust him... but do I even give him that second chance?
