This gem came from a good pal of mine who recently joined PlentyofFish - a website I still get weekly matches from despite my attempts to unsubscribe. Enjoy!

I went on the blind date last night with a guy and it was terribly interesting. He ended up being exactly like his emails, funny and sarcastic. He's at least 6'1", maybe taller, built and kinda nerdy-cute with Clark Kent glasses. BUT, get this, he's got more phobias and issues than anyone I have ever met:
  • he doesn't go in the ocean because of sharks
  • he's afraid of heights
  • he gets sea sick and car sick
  • he’s vegetarian/vegan because he loves animals
  • he has asthma
  • he refuses do drink beer or wine - only booze
  • the only vacation he's ever really been on was to Disney World two years ago
  • he loves Comicon and Star Wars (the home image on his phone is Anakin Skywalker after he became Darth Vader)
  •  he was obese as a child so he doesn't ever over-eat and that's why he initially became vegetarian to lower his cholesterol
  • he doesn’t eat junk food. Ever.
  • he grew up in Staten Island and has all kinds of problems with that (especially that his parents are racist)
  • his best friend may be gay and he's worried about that because his friend won’t admit it
  • he's obsessed with fish (like as pets) and has a huge fish tank in his apt. 
  • he's furious people think he's a certain ethnicity because of his last name (maybe the apple doesn't fall so far from the tree) 
What is the weirdest thing you ever discovered about someone on a first date? Was it enough to keep you from going on a second date? And yes, there will be a second date for my friend...can't wait to tell you all how it goes!
