A verbatim transcript of my chat. Sometimes this book just writes itself.
If I date it, it will turn into an asshole.
Me: So tell me about your son.
Him: He has severe autism. He’s non-verbal
Me: That must be challenging. How old is he?
Me: Does he live with you or your ex-wife?
Him: Both. I’m not out of the house yet. So I have a lot to lose if I do something stupid.
Me: Ummmm. That changes things.
Him: What do you mean?
Me: You’re not separated.
Him: I’m working on it.
Me: We can stay in contact, But I’m not comfortable going out until you are separated or at least moved out.
Him: That sucks. What’s your problem? Most women are ok with my arrangement
Him: So are we not on for Thursday.
Him: This is bullshit.
Me: She is ok with you dating?
Him: She’s doesn’t know I am.
Me: Again, I would be glad to try this when you are separated, have moved out, etc.
Him: You’re a bitch
Me: You lied. You’re not separated.
Him: What is the definition of separated? Do you have to be out of the house?
Me: Do you have legal separation papers filed?
Him: No. I haven’t told her yet. Hey I am not putting the kabashes on this thing with you. Why won’t you listen or work with me?
Me: AGAIN, as soon as you are legally separated and/or moved out and/or have told your wife that your marriage is over, I would love to see you.
Him: Ok…so Thursday is out?
