Fair Warning

Note to self: Since you have re-entered the dating scene, it would be wise to trust your instincts when it comes to assessing a person's character. Giving someone the benefit of the doubt is for suckers who will find themselves in an awkward position.

Case in point. I met someone on-line, we emailed back and forth, progressed to talking on the phone and had our first "date". Today, this person called and asked if I would act as a personal reference on a job application. I've known them a week...seven days! When I pointed this out...the response was..."just tell them you've known me a year." When I said I wouldn't lie, I was hung up on...hung up on! Then I receive a text message stating I'm too "arnry". I guess if "arnry" means I have principles...then call me "arnry."

Note to self: Always trust your instincts...

So, what the hell is arnry? Is is ornery? SCARY - some people are just strange, but aren't you glad that you found out now?

Yes, I believe ornery would be the correct spelling. Glad? No, I am not glad to have spent even a short amount of time with someone of this caliber.
