The Last Straw

So I've been out of it for a while, got into a relationship last January that recently ended poorly (if you know me, I'd be more than happy to share, but too much to post here). Anyway, in a moment of utter weakness I re-activated my online dating account on okcupid. I picked up where I left off, ignoring the heavyweights and trying to schmooze some cuties. I met up with a possible a week or so ago. We had similar interests in TV (at least I'd be able to nerd out with her about lost) and she seemed friendly enough.

Our meet-n-great ended in a fizzle, however, and I quickly picked up on the fact that we weren't compatible. No biggie, was polite and friendly, but didn't email back or go for a second date. These things happen.

Today I signed on, and she deleted her account? I wonder, was I really that bad? Like how do you become the last straw for people? I mean, really, we met up for a drink, exhausted the things we had in common, and called it a day. What more can I do?

In all honesty, I am rather disappointed. Not because I was someone's last straw, but because she wasn't my last straw. I really want to have some terrible dates to post to FML, or at least joke around about with my friends, and I horrify someone so much that they delete their account? I mean, I've got skills, but damn.

Maybe I should stop messaging nice women and start messaging the freaks.

I think if you dated some freaks, you'd have funnier/worse stories to share. Although it's always funniest when someone appears to be perfectly normal, and then turns into a freak over the course of the date.
