Try Solving This John Walsh

I would like John Walsh, with all his insight on abnormal behavior and finding missing people, to try and explain this:

I’ll have an amazing, over-the-top first date with someone. So much so, my newly suggested boyfriend blurts out with intense enthusiasm “Wow, I can’t believe someone like you is single!” And then proceeds to invite me to his weekend home or make summer vacation plans for the two of us.

Feeling euphoric, we proceed to a second date. Then, somewhere between that flurry of calls to schedule the first date and the second date make out session, the guy vanishes into the Witness Protection Program. Gone. Never to be heard from again.

Then, months later, when all is forgotten, I get a LinkedIn or Facebook message. Some send iChat requests or, even stranger, call. One fellow sent me an e-mail wishing me happy birthday two consecutive years and we never even kissed!

And one wonders why I’m still single.

  1. men are so strange!

  2. So frustrating! I think this happens to everyone at least once… also known as “The Irish goodbye”. Full investigation of this phenomenon: http://www.artfulonlinedating.com/22812-investigating-the-irish-goodbye/

  3. I call this the “Faux Boyfriend” — goes in hard and strong, makes vague plans to go to Mexico (“Do you like Cabo — maybe we can go — I know the greatest place to…”) and then disappears in a week. These guys are great at PLAYING the role of charming-sweep-you-off-your-feet, but when it comes to shove, they are off re-creating the role with some other mark. If i was a woman, this would drive me crazy. Luckily, women usually don’t do this — get your hopes way way way high on date 1 and then disappear…

  4. Agree, David. Wonder if I said to a guy on date one or two, “I make a great lasagna or give great BJs. I’ll invite you over sometime so you can try it.” And then didn’t return his calls. I’d be considered a tease. Still, curious when you say guys do it with some other mark in mind. What’s the mark?

  5. I mean some other woman they are laying their ‘Aren’t-I-great-suave-guy’ rap on
