Match.com & Guns

So I joined match.com Friday as a suggestion from my neuro-psychologist. Within two hours I get a “like” from an attractive and well spoken woman. We eventually exchanged phone numbers later in the evening. It turns out she only lives 5 miles from me (I confirmed that via insider information) but is in the capital of Brazil until she returns to Texas on Tuesday. She is a construction engineer. Since international calls are so expensive we have traded hundreds of text messages. So far? Real good. But I was thinking of when to mention the “G” word? That is Gun for all you pervs. Anyway, she asked what my hobbies were. I replied… “Photography, art, and shooting”. I thought for sure I was going to get blocked. Then she replied “I love shooting”.
To make a long story short, you all probably won’t be needed anymore. So just get over it.

This was a fun post to read! :slight_smile:
And the last line even funnier but true.

I hope she turns out to be a like minded companion for you.
If things go well or poorly keep us up to date or at minimum, PM me.

I sent her this meme. Her reply was… “Yep, that’s pretty much me. Lol.”.
I then replied… “That’s a wrap. You are the winner”. And then I deleted my Match profile. Yes, I am an optimist.

I took the GF to her first trip to the range last weekend. She wants to shoot more, and keeps on asking more info about guns, and concealed carry.

I would not require a GF to be pro gun, but don’t think I could date an anti gun woman. Best of wishes with it TexasEskimo! :grinning:

That’s a good point.

I had a really good friend years ago, he was conservative and his wife was liberal.
He said they never watched the news together and never talked politics with each other.

@Fred_G Thanks. We haven’t spoken about “The Donald” yet. Hopefully I can check off that box soon. Then comes “RIP vs. JHP”. That may be the kicker.

You two could cause a marriage therapist to ask for help on therapist forum if you become a couple and argue about JHP vs… :smile:

Don’t worry “we” will be here for you when she dumps your butt. :heart_eyes:
Nancy found me on Match, we have been together for 8 years and happily married for 5 years.
I say go for it and good luck. :four_leaf_clover:

@Zee The car is never sold until the taillights are going out of the driveway and the check clears the bank. If you know what I mean.
Plus, you’re married and your husband looks better than the Marlboro man. If I was gay… oh, never mind. Bottom line… He would kill me (us). But I can still love you! :heart:

Ahahaha @TexasEskimo that’s perfect :grin:
Besides, I detect a theme here… she’s an engineer, I’m an engineer … she likes to shoot, I like to shoot… she travels for work, I travel for work…
I’m just going to predict she’s AWESOME :laughing: :grin: :heart_eyes:

@BRUCE26 To help jog Nancy’s memory just mention… a bottle of vodka, a Goodyear tire, a golf ball, a trampoline, and the police. I mean, that should at least narrow it down for her.

She says, was the tire a whitewall and the golf ball a Titleist? If so her recurring nightmare is returning. :scream:

@BRUCE26 No. It was raised white letters and a range ball. Must have been a different Nancy I guess. So… never mind.
But, you may need to have a talk with her about the white walls and Titleist. Just sayin’.

I hope all goes well, @TexasEskimo.

Unfortunately, I have had different experiences when mentioning the G word and then going shooting with them. A lot of men don’t like it when women know more about firearms than they do or when women outshoot them on a date.

I’ve also had a guy tell me he was carrying on a first date (no big deal) as he was ordering his second gin and tonic (big deal). Made it through the rest of my drink and left. He didn’t appreciate me telling him it was illegal to drink and carry in Wisconsin.
