Dolls and Guys

Story Sent in by Genya:

My first date with Peter was great, from my perspective. I caught him checking me out more than once and we had non-stop conversation. So I was a bit deflated when he wrote me the next day to say that he had a great time but that I "blinked too much" so that was why he couldn't "find it in [his] heart" to ask me out again.

I asked him to define "too much" and he sent me a video of himself blinking non-stop while he flailed his arms around and yelled the word, "Barbie! Barbie! Barbie! Barbie! Barbie!" repeatedly. Barbie hadn't come up once during our date so I was confused on that. Then something else caught my eye.

On our date he had no facial hair. In the video he had what was clearly several days' growth on his face. So he had probably actually made the video before we had ever gone out. I could've pointed that out and kept up a conversation with him about it but I just let it go.

Less than a week later he wrote me again. The entire text of the message was "BARBIE" copy-pasted about 1,000 times. I wish him and his new doll all the best.


  1. Or.........He time traveled. Future him told present him that it wasn't going to work out because you blinked too much and began hoarding Barbies. Then he recorded a video for you and vanished from existence because OP decided never to see you again and eliminated that possible time line.

    Or it was a stock excuse and a stock video that he used on all his non-secks dates.

    Or......His face is magnetic and he fell face first into a box of metal filings before making the video.

  2. Life in plastic, is fantastic.

    1. Come on Barbie, let's go party.
      OO-WA-OH, OO-WA-OH.

    2. Life in plastic
      He's sarcastic

  3. I am disheartened that so many grown men are so horribly immature. Lol

  4. I'm convinced that there are some people who go on dates simply troll their dates.
