Eel Man: My Slimiest Date Ever
I call him "Eel Man," one of the slimiest dates I ever had.
I met him online through Craigslist, a place I frequented after my husband died and I discovered all his affairs and other betrayals. Eel Man seemed wonderful - good convo, decent looks (though it was a bit hard to tell under that baseball cap). Into health, outdoors, fitness, spirituality. Intelligent computer guy, liked the ocean. We spoke by phone a few times, long conversations that melted into the night. Nothing sexual, he was a gentleman of the old school, with a comforting voice. Single and available. And he checked in often to see how I was. He seemed to communicate well. Rare.
