Hey guys, this is Laura's Corner.
00:02
That's right.
00:02
I changed my name again today.
00:05
I'm going to be talking about my online dating history because
00:08
y'all know I like to put myself out there as some of you guys
00:10
know, I used to dabble with aim.
00:12
But when myspace came, that was on a whole another level.
00:16
Why?
00:17
Because you had pictures, you could put music on your profile
00:20
I remember spending hours on myspace trying to like make it
00:23
look really cool.
00:24
So people could think I was really cool.
00:26
That wasn't the case.
00:27
There is this one, one guy in particular that messaged me and
00:30
he was like, hey, what's up?
00:32
I think you're super cute and you're super funny, you're super
00:34
talented.
00:35
And I was like, damn, I think you're cute too, even though all
00:38
his pictures were very, very blurry.
00:40
But I was like, who cares?
00:41
That's a male giving me attention.
00:43
So one day this really cute guy with blurry pictures was like
00:47
hey, we should meet up.
00:48
So I was like, yeah, totally.
00:50
I didn't tell my mom that I was going to go on this myspace date
00:52
because it was like super sketchy and back then it wasn't really
00:56
normal for teenagers to be going out on like technological
01:00
dates.
01:01
The day came and I was super excited.
01:03
I was like, oh my God, like this is really happening.
01:05
I'm gonna get a boyfriend because that's just where my mind
01:07
goes.
01:07
He knocks on the door and I open it and I see it's this guy that
01:11
does not look like his picture because of course it was myspace
01:14
Laura.
01:14
What were you thinking?
01:16
Duh.
01:17
And in my head, I was like, oh my God, what have I done?
01:21
What do I do?
01:21
What do I do?
01:22
I can't cancel.
01:23
He's here right now and he was like, hey, what's up?
01:25
You ready?
01:26
And I was like, ha ha.
01:27
Yeah, but I was not ready because I did not wanna go.
01:29
So I go on the date and you know, we're sitting down, we're talking
01:32
getting to know each other and I'm just like, I don't wanna
01:34
be here right now.
01:35
I am not into him like I'm not about this life.
01:37
I'm gonna tell you why I'm telling you guys the story.
01:39
He drops me off home and I'm like, ok, and I pull out my hand,
01:43
give him a handshake.
01:44
I'm like, ok, and he goes, wait, that's it.
01:48
I didn't come here for this and he slams open my door and he tries
01:53
to come inside my house and I'm like, clearly shook.
01:57
And I was like, if you don't get out of my house.
02:00
I'm gonna call the police and he was like, ch ch ch I'm just saying
02:03
I thought you were into me and I'm like, I'm clearly not into
02:06
you.
02:06
I I gave you a handshake to say goodbye.
02:08
Hello.
02:09
Get the cues.
02:11
So he's like chill, chill c I don't know why he kept saying Jill
02:13
and I'm like, OK, go chill somewhere else.
02:15
Bye.
02:16
So he left and then I called my friends and they picked me up
02:18
and I was like crying.
02:19
I was like, oh God, that was the terrible thing that happened
02:21
to me.
02:22
I was also really crazy and thirsty.
02:24
Clearly, I love a stranger inside my house.
02:27
So that's what happened with the myspace guy.
