Well there is a first time for everything.
I met a guy on Bumble who seemed genuine enough. We chatted pleasantly and moved to text.
He claimed he worked for Doctors Without Borders as an Orthopedic surgeon.
We didn’t chat very much for reasons that seemed intact. I had friends visiting and all my free time was consumed and he was due to be out of the country this past week. We were arranging a date for the upcoming week.
I suppose if I think about it, I didn’t check his Bumble GPS because I was too busy and it was only a first date.
During the chat over 2 weeks, again, very light chatter, there were some things that started to come up as red flags that I disregarded. One being, his English wasn’t great and he rarely spoke about himself. He would pop in and out, always staying in touch, but never really giving away any information, the conversation remain too generalized.
In hindsight, when I went back through my messages, I didn’t give anything away either, other than general responses to his questions. “How are you?” was met with “Hi! I’m great – I have friends in town – how are you?” It never moved past that.
Lesson learned is when I am distracted or I have too many men I am juggling, I obviously didn’t pay close enough attention to him.
