The Convict

I met the Convict about 5 years ago, online. We exchanged a few emails back and forth and decided to meet for drinks. I remember thinking he was cute in a white trash sort of way. If I would have met him now, I probably wouldn’t have even stayed for a drink. Back then, everyone had a chance to make an impression. But, I am older now, with much higher standards…almost!
So we are sitting at the bar, having drinks, chatting….and then out of nowhere…he tells me that he had been arrested for domestic abuse. After choking on my spinach dip, I asked what happened. He said, it really wasn’t what it seemed. I asked for him to elaborate….He said ‘NO”. And so I said, “See ya!”
Is this what is left? I am 32 years old…does this mean I am passed my prime? Do I need to realize that my options have come to assholes or criminals?
Ugh, Dating!


  1. Wow. You're not even close to coming to the apex of your prime. Besides, you always have me as a fall back :)

  2. I once had a few dates with a criminal- federal prison. Needless to say, I didn't waste my time and I am glad to see you didn't waste yours. He is out there, you just have to go through some bad ones first- trust me, I know!

  3. Ian- you are way too great to be anyones fall back!!!! but ill take it ;)
    melissa- ill keep on trucking :)

  4. No, that's not all that's left!! It will happen.
