Dates from Hell

LONG DISTANCE LOSER | Read more stories

I met this guy online who said he was Army Special Forces and was on leave and staying with his mom until his leave was up. We talked for maybe 2 weeks. He talked the talk and seemed to be pretty honest. So I accepted the offer to go visit him 440 miles away. I went down there on a Thursday night. When I arrived I noticed he was every bit as handsome as he was in his photos. We went to a little beach bar and had a couple of beers.

Then we went back to his mom's house. He insisted that I stay with him and his mom. I didn't have to spend the money on a hotel. By then I felt comfortable enough to stay. Well the attraction between us was massive and we ended up in bed together on the first night. It was amazing! So the next day I got out of the shower and caught him going thru my cell!!! He said he was just curious. I was angry about it, but forgave him. I was starting to feel like he was the jealous and possessive type. We went to the beach and out that night. We had a really wonderful time. Then Saturday night we went to a club. He kept going to buy drinks and at one point brought me a Jager Bomb. I couldn't finish it because I was getting sick and wasted. Then all of the sudden he threw my keys at me and told me to get lost. I was so confused. He said that I hit him 3 times!! I don't even remember doing that. It was like I lost time or something. Because I didn't know what he was talking about. So I picked up my keys and

realized I didn't have a clue where the hell I was and I was really intoxicated. After begging and pleading with him not to leave me like this he agreed to get in the car and help me get back to his place to get my things. I got my things and! left. I got a hotel room for the rest of the night. I got up and drove home still really confused. He ended up calling me back and apologizing for what happened and said he wanted to see me again. I said okay but never went back. He started telling me that he loved me and missed me, which was another warning sign. So one day at work I decided to Google his name to see what would come up. I found a mugg shot!!! He had just been released from jail!! He had been serving time for Assault with a gun that he had pulled on his girlfriend. I even found the newspaper article about the incident. He had a lot more charges than that. I did find out that he wasn't lying about being in the Army. I have reason to believe that his experiences in the Army may have caused his issues. So did I learn my lesson? Yes I'm not dating online again. But I still think about him and it breaks my heart that things turned out the way they did.
