Well again back by popular demand here’s another dating tale for you as voted for by friends.. The Phantom Pilot
The photo on his profile was cute and he said he was a pilot. When he turned up I walked right passed him and was shocked when he introduced himself as he looked nothing like his photo. It wasn’t that he had posted an old photo on the site of a younger looking him or even that it had been airbrushed to death. The picture was clearly a completely different person.
He spent the date talking about weird pilot facts such as that the co-pilot has to eat different food, what the runway at Funchal airport is like but described it from the point of view of when you play ‘Flight Simulator’ game for Playstation – very odd for a real pilot.
He was due to have the following day off work and when I asked how he was planning to spend his time; he answered saying he was going to go play the pianos in the music shop. So I said I didn’t realise he was a pianist as there was no mention in his profile description but he said he couldn’t play at all. He liked to go in and make a racket on the pianos to annoy the shop’s staff. He thought it was very funny to hit random keys very hard until they had him removed from the premises!
Date over and needless to say I didn’t see him again.
Very interestingly though I discovered from a work colleague that she dated the exact same guy too, 6 months earlier, however back then he said he was a salesman with an older brother who was a pilot. It seems as though when he didn’t have much success as a salesman he decided to assume his brother’s identity in order to be more “successful” on the dating site!
