POF : Think I dodged a bullet but I’m guilty of how i handled it
So I actually got a date finally on PoF, but all the signs were there that should have told me to stay away. However the girl seemed nice and I didn’t want to write her off and wanted to give her a legit chance. From my earlier post on here I noted that PoF has a poor girl problem, as in alot of them dont have cars. Well, this was one of them. However, she liked the same things i did and she was fairly attractive.
Anyway, we setttled on going on a date last weekend, meet up at the cinema and go from there. However, a change of plans happened and she wanted me to come to her sister’s place. Immediately a red flag went up but I thought, “well her family will be there so maybe it will be ok.” So like an idiot i drove over an hour and a half to her sisters house. What i found unsettled me and made me instantly nope out of there.
She never informed me her sister’s “house” was a mobile home in a disgusting trailer park. With nothing but dirt, piles of garbage and beer cans, and mangy diseased dogs mulling about. I’m in the South so I’ve seen this type of stuff before but even most Southern people avoid these areas if they can. Not trying to be mean to people who are struggling but it does give off an aura of danger. She never informed me of this, and not only that she stated in text that her sister’s trailer was in the very back and was secluded. I panicked, didn’t even enter the trailer park. I turned around, blocked her number and deleted my PoF account a d all dating apps I had. It turned me off completely and scared me away from the online dating scene. Possibly for good. I just spent the rest of the day shopping, so my day wasn’t a total waste.
Did i do the right thing? I know it was kinda cowardly and I know I ghosted majorly on her but I just kept getting weird vibes from the start. I was uncomfortable from the get- go going to her place instead of public area. When i saw the trailer park I felt like I was heading into some kind of trap. (My car is also pretty nice, at least conpared to rusted out and dirty pick up trucks all over the place, and i was dressed nice as well, so i felt like I had a target on my back).
