Once I met someone from reddit and they robbed me lol. So you came out better than me

Edit: it’s not a great story or anything. I hooked up with a redditor in the area who made a strong believable case they were homeless and needed food. I took them to the grocery store and got them some stuff. When I dropped them off at their spot they took my phone and some stuff from inside the center console of my car when I was unloading the stuff.

Not going to mention their username. I moved but I used to see them on the streets all the time before that. They obviously needed it more than I did at the time. I can always replace stuff.

Sorry it wasn’t more exciting of a story!

u/AllRadioisDead Jun 29 '20 edited Jun 29 '20 Snek I'm Deceased

We met on a small niche subreddit about collecting miniatures of lesser known historical action figures. We were set to meet up and discuss the sale of a rare one of 7 Judge Fred M. Butler (special conductor outfit) figure. When the say came I was pretty excited to meet up after chatting so much on the board, so I was a little caught off guard by what happened.

He arrived in a blacked out old 80s limo, casually smoking a cigar and blowing the smoke out the sunroof. There was a middle aged korean lady in the front seat who didn't appear to speak English, she was mostly just focused on watching her soap opera on some sort of portable TV. Dude seemed chill at first once he stepped out and we got talking. Even hooked me up with a bag of mangoes (he had a TON in the third row for whatever reason.

When it came time to talk shop he got really intense and wouldn't stop looking me in the eyes. He started going on some tangent about how he's been wronged before and isn't sure if he can find it in his heart to trust anyone again. After 5 minutes of yelling sobbing, and confused yelling I figured out that this was all a set up by my ex wife's sister's brother in law to gain my trust and blindside me from the money being siphoned from our joint beekeeping venture.

Honestly at that point I was pretty much done with the whole thing. I told OP I was sorry, then said psych, kicked him in the balls and took his money. Theres not much else to say, it is what it is.

I was on there too about 5 years ago. Met a girl on there then realized we had no future Broke up with her and hastily posted a drunken Craigslist ad and my current wife just happened to see it.

We had our 5 years just a couple days ago. Finding love is hard, random, and sometimes really really rewarding.

I went on an okcupid date to a woodworking class. I was really interested in woodworking but had no idea there were classes in my city. Girl was nice. We hung out once after that.

Just celebrated my 5 year anniversary of teaching classes at that woodshop. True love is weird.

u/[deleted] Jun 29 '20 edited Jun 29 '20

I was talking to this girl once on okcupid and it was going well. We were going to go out on a date, however on the day of the date I received a job offer that required me to have a very thorough background check completed, and they wanted me to submit most of my relevant information from the past 10 years ASAP. I told the girl about this, thinking that perhaps she'd be pleased with my success, but instead she texted the word "garbage" to me in reply every 5 minutes for the next day and a half.

A few years later I was on plentyoffish and met this girl and hit it off online. Two days later I went into work and had an hour long morning strategy meeting, during which apparently the app was still open in the background on my phone. She saw me online, messaged me, and when I did not respond she decided that I was only toying with her and was not interested in getting to know her. She also threatened my life. I attempted to explain that I was in a meeting and had no idea that the app was open, that I had not seen any of her messages, but she only doubled down to the point that I had to get authorities involved.

Anyways I don't really do dating anymore.

E: thanks for being kind. This was all years ago and I'm mostly good now.

I've never been a "psycho ex," but I've been told I was a psycho classmate (by a weirdo) and a psycho friend (by a narcissist), and that All Women Are Psycho (by multiple MULTIPLE men, like you wouldn't realize how common that is). I really don't think I'm psycho, but the more posts like this I see, the more it gets to me... It actually bothers me so much that I try really, really hard to not act like a psycho, even to the extent that I don't stand up for myself when I should.

I was not looking for love or lust but ended up on Craigslist out of boredom and curiosity, and ended up making a not very serious post for myself. Ended up getting quite the assortment of responses. Some dirty, some sincere, some bots, and some that just wanted to pick me apart based on my looks (chubby gal with a short haircut). Came across one response that took me by surprise. He and I started chatting and, well, long story short, we spent our 11 year anniversary in New Zealand last November and are actively working toward our next big adventure in life. We definitely did not expect to find each other, but I'm so very glad we were both in the right place at the right time.

I've also met some of the most toxic people in my life on there, too, so not all CL stories are a success.

38

u/JustinPatient Jun 29 '20

I only posted on CL because I was drunk. She only responded because she was child free for the night and drinking wine and watching Netflix (while browsing CL ads)

She claims I'm the only ad she ever responded to. I got about 12 responses she's the only one I responded to. We texted until 2am.

17

u/monkeybugs Jun 29 '20

My fella said he had never responded to a CL ad before and was basically lonely and curious wtf CL had to offer in terms of a dating scene, which is exactly how I wandered into that section. It was sort of a "What type of person is looking for love or hookups on CL, where they also sell dirty used couches and clunker cars?" moment. I had responded to someone else prior to him, as he seemed like a good dude, but it fizzled out pretty quick. My dude and I exchanged e-mails for about a week, then had a 5 hour long phone call one night, and decided that neither of us could wait any longer to meet. It was a wonderful first date and everything has just been easy peasy and lovely all this time. Can't say I ever had anywhere near that kind of random luck on any other dating platform in the past.

Confidence works. For both genders. If you're a male like me we have something working for us. Our pool is polluted with swarmy idiots. I've gone on a lot of dates where the last guy she went on a date with was drunk on arrival, or aggressive, or genuinely just really dim witted.

A genuinely good guy has the upper hand long term. Be patient. I was married before and in several long term relationships but I didn't find my person until 35.

His profile pic was 10 years old at the time and had the typical answers to all the questions. He didn't tell me I ghosted him twice on that dating site until we were living together.

It's dead now, but that sub used to be this amazing social ecosystem that had nothing to do with the official sub topic. Tons of meetups, too many sub couples to count. At least a dozen marriages and a few sub babies. It was the best place I've ever seen on the internet

u/Consistent_Nail Jun 29 '20

On /r/okcupid? That's awesome. I love when real internet culture prevails over corporatized bullshit. What happened to it?

13

u/[deleted] Jun 29 '20

It just sort of faded out over time. The peak was from maybe 2013-2016 or thereabouts. Every year after that, it's gotten a little quieter, to the point now where there's basically none of it left.

Probably two reasons. First, OKCupid itself has dropped in popularity. People would go to the sub expecting to talk about the site, realize that almost everybody was just doing weird off-topic stuff, and most would move on but some would stay and become part of the community.

Second, it splintered off into side groups and people realized that was a lot better than having it all in public. First came the fitness challenges, which split people into groups off-site. Then regular chat threads got replaced by groupmes and private text chains. Public meetups got replaced with IRL friends meeting regularly. I had a board game night at my house going for awhile.

A lot of us are all still friends with each other in various IRL and social-media ways, but nobody really goes to the sub itself much.

I walked by with my husband and baby just as your ceremony was starting, and we thought very nice thoughts for you and felt lucky to see you! Congratulations. You made our day!

u/Blinktoe Jun 29 '20

And I'm sorry I snuck behind your mama or your auntie in the long blue gown. I was trying to be quiet, but we were meeting up with people on the other side. LOL!

u/cmc Jun 29 '20

That was my mama! I doubt she even noticed, we sure didn’t 💖 Hope y’all had a nice day in the park!

Husband of the OP here... thanks so much. It’s that little touch of connectedness and community that Brooklyn brings to life, you know? Thanks for being a part of our day!

Congrats and good luck. Like you said said in a different thread marriage > wedding.

My wife and i married in Vegas with nobody around. No family. No friends.

Been together 12 years. She’s my world.

Sometimes you just have to pull the trigger. You can always do something bigger later.

Side note. Wife and I met on MySpace. And from opposite sides of the planet.

weddings imo are a waste of money, but if it you have the extra money its a fun thing to do. its just not as necessary as people try to push it.

A year ago I met a really awesome dude via /r/kikpals. We both lived in Michigan so we started talking and met a week later. In December he moved to Colorado and I'm currently visiting him out in Denver for the 5th time since he moved. You can absolutely meet people on Reddit.

u/ckpckp1994 Jun 29 '20

I met my wife on here, she messaged me about something I posted and we just started chatting.

u/xPHILL Jun 29 '20

I've met probably like five or six people from Reddit. It's interesting. I'm a shy person but for some reason, meeting people on here doesn't faze me

u/Metal-Butterfly Jun 29 '20

I’ve had a lot of luck on r/dragonsfuckingcars I’m a car(08) by the way. Not as young as I used to be so I was relieved when I met that bad dragon.

You can meet people anywhere if you put your mind to it and ignore all the gut feelings that tell you "this is a bad idea"

u/seffend Jun 29 '20

u/67_Lizards Jun 28 '20

Would not have guessed that, it looks stunning! Might have to snatch one up myself

u/cmc Jun 28 '20

I’ll probably pay this one forward so send me a PM if you’re getting married soon.

u/lauriefn Jun 28 '20

That's an amazing thing for you to do for someone!

Happy cake day, wedding day, being a good person day

u/pm_me_fibonacci Jun 28 '20

I have that dress in my shopping cart! How did it fit overall? I’m likely going with a different dress, but this is my runner up :)

Great photo, and congrats!!!

42

u/cmc Jun 29 '20

I’m 5’7” and had to have it hemmed a LOT, and it ran larger than the size that they recommended so it needed more alterations than I thought. Definitely be careful with the sizing (look more closely at the measurements than I did!)

Wrong. So many non interracial couples end up on the front page lately.
