Unfastened Friday 4.0

College is supposed to be a time to experiment right? Well, I certainly experimented. I was 22 and I put myself out on every dating website I could find. There were no real men at my mostly female university – a private Catholic one at that. So, instead of trolling the local bars bringing home a hillbilly boy, I ventured into online dating.

God, lucky to come out alive? Probably.

Any close calls with dangerous situations? No.

Still, I could have easily met some freak and wound up dead in a field somewhere. I was desperate, fearless, and so lonely… I’ve met many men online. My first and only “offline” boyfriend last 3 weeks, a record compared to many of the others.

I’ll tell you about one of my encounters now. Mark. I met him online – we got together twice. The first time was in the middle of the night, at your average hotel off the interstate. The man didn’t even come down from the room to meet me. Classy. I pretended to be his fiancĂ© when I asked for his room number at the counter.

An average looking late 20s or early 30-something guy answered the door. He was clean-cut and dressed in Abercrombie clothes. Looking back now, I can’t even remember if I saw his picture before we met up. I’m glad he wasn’t ugly.

We had that uncomfortable silence before awkward conversation. I was sitting on the bed. He was sitting on the chair next to the bed. He was shy!! Unbelievable! I was surprisingly not. Although, since then I have hear Catholic girls are pent up sex kittens. I believe it now.

I don’t remember what happened between sitting there in silence, to me being fingered and fucked on the bed, but I can remember he felt so good in that 60 seconds. Straddling his hips I barely got started when he shoved me off and bolted to the bathroom!

I think a) he came too early and was embarrassed or b) he was just plain regretful.

I tend to think he shot off too fast and was embarrassed. Five minutes later, I’m still waiting, dumbfounded. I wonder if we’re going to finish what we started. He comes out of the bathroom and sits on the bed. More uncomfortable silence.

He asks, “Do you want the room for the night?” I decline. I need to get home. I live with my parents, after all, and they’d freak if I wasn’t there in the morning.

I dress and leave. I can’t even remember if he kisses me goodnight. I felt like a hooker without getting paid.

On top of the disappointment, I manage to come away with a chuckle. I finally understood the jokes of women when they laugh about their “minute man.” So disappointing. I drive home in the dark, in silence, wondering if he’ll call again.

Three weeks later my phone rings.


This one is usually longer, but if you have a story or a 'quickie', then please send it to me here! It can be 100% anonymous if you like - just don't fill out the name or email field - it will STILL send if those aren't filled, yo!


  1. The crazy, impulsive things we did during college!

    I hope you had used some kind of protection(eeek!). But yeah, could imagine your frustration at the time. It's worse than not having sex at all... to have tasted the good part only to be cut so abruptly short. I think I would've humped pretty much anything on sight if I were you at that time. Haha.

  2. I'm glad he was cute, too bad he had a quick trigger finger. Bummer

  3. few things are as disappointing as a super quick guy, especially one that won't continue with alternative things to make sure you at least get off at some point...come on dude, have some manners for goodness sake!

  4. Hey Girlfriend: Look first of all hope your did where protection, BUT... ARE YOU CRAZY? You are sooooo lucky your head is still attached, and all your body parts are still connected. What is wrong with you? Look if you need to get off you better start entering some of these eden fantasys give-away & knock your socks off until the cows come home! STRANGERS are a no no! Please be more careful. Isn't there some local dance place at least get to know the guy for a few hours in person & make your judgments then! DANG! I'm glad your in one piece. WHEW! Hugzzzz

  5. @XMas Dolly

    I think it worked out though - I'm pretty sure she married him! LOL
