The Beast(ex boyfriend number 1) part I

This is the post for Sunday 6/11/06 I know the date does not reflect that.
I'm going to have to make a number of posts to cover all that this monster put me through. Let me start from the beginning. When I was twenty I decided to go to summer school. Since I had a break between my classes I would go to the computer lab. One day, while playing around in the computer lab I decided to put my profile on yahoo personals. I got a few responses but then I posted my picture to the profile and that is when my mailbox would overflow. One of those responses was from the beast. He told me he could not send his picture right away but when he finally did, I was not impressed. I guess he wanted me to get to know him for his personality not his looks.He also told me he was currently living in Canada but he was originally from Nigeria. Now being the type of person that I am, when he told me he was from Nigeria I imediatly went out and read every peace of imformation that I could on Nigeria. He also told me he was from the Yoruba ethnic group(I refuse to use the term tribe). I read things about Yorba culture and I asked him to teach me a few words of Yoruba( I can say a number of things in Yoruba thanks to him and other Yoruba people that I've come across ), which I took great pleasure in using when I can across other Yoruba people. Anyway, overtime he asked me for my phone number so that he could call me. I asked him for his phone number too but he said that his house phone was disconnected because he had a very large bill as a result of calling his grandmother in Nigeria. A RED FLAG SHOULD HAVE WENT UP but stupid, innocent and virginal(yes I didn't lost my virginity until I was 21) believed the lying idiot . This is only part one , there is much more to come.

oh dear, yup red flag def should've come up right from the get-go. But can't say I blame you for not seeing it so early. I'm the same way too. Too willing to give them a chance and see where it leads.....sigh.

Anyway, can tell this isn't going to be very pleasant. So what exactly did the beast do?

Arrgh. I've given up on internet dating. Trying to navigate standard dating is complicated enough!
