Online dating story
As I was looking for the appropriate forum to post this, I could not find the "Firearms and dating" forum, so it goes here I guess.
I live in Portland. I am on a dating website and found a lady who lives in Seattle. It just so happens that I am going up to Seattle this weekend to take the Intensive Handgun class from Insights. I email this lady to tell her I will be in Seattle taking a class and this might be a good time to meet for the first time.
We talked on the phone a bit today and the conversation went something like this:
Her: What I do for a living?
Me: I write software.
Her: So you are taking a software class?
Me: Uh, no, but I don't want to make you nervous.
Her: You can't.
Me: OK, well, I am taking a firearms class and I.....
Her: OMG, I am an NRA member myself.
I actually haven't met this lady, but now I have even more reason to. I guess it was better than the other lady hanging up on me.

Ha! Well done. Back when I was dating, when asked what I did when I wasn't working, I answered "I'm a civil rights activist." I just didn't get into which civil rights I specialized in until many dates later!
So you'll have to get together to compare membership cards!

Sounds like she has definite potential! Good luck!

I like it. Called myself a Constitutionalist a couple of times.

Was it before or after you divulged you were a computer geek/nerd/dweebe? Did you drop the NRA/firearms/ninja bomb early? The squeaky voice?

Now you don't have to run away if she tells you she has a virus.

Sounds like an experience I had with a woman I started going out with. About the 4th date, I needed to tell her.... due to the situation, and advised her " I have something to tell you " .... whereupon I told her I had a CC license and carried a gun. The reaction, I was not expecting....... she was thrilled and said "SO DO I , and raised her shirt enough so that I saw the gun she was carrying IWB.
However, it ended after the 8th "date", when I discovered something that I didn't know about her up to that point...... she made a comment she didn't intend to make. I discovered thru that conversation, she was married and had been lieing about being single. That made me "think" , what if her husband had ever appeared, angry... etc... and I didn't even know she had a husband.
So .. NOW .... I do a search thru a friend of the court records, to make sure if they say they are "divorced" , that the records substantiate it.

For all you single guys looking to meet other gun owning females. I would recommend going to Camospace.com which is a social network for the outdoor/gun community.

Not a big fan of "Dr. Phil," but one of his quotes is memorable: "If they'll do it with you, they'll do it to you." Good advice, and it sounds like you found out in time.

SO you are bringing 4 handguns, 4500 rounds of ammo, a bottle of non-alcoholic champagne, a picnic lunch, and an engagement ring... Right?

Nice. Hope it goes well. Met my wife online and we'll be celebrating our 5-year in a few weeks. Glad she's into firearms, too.
