Hot Jaded Mess

Diane was nervous, but her boring life made her venture out for some excitement. Chatting online under the name hotnjaded0412 helped her realize she had fantasies she wanted to fulfill. She decided to meet up with love3x and her boyfriend to see what they can get into. Diane put on a sexy, tight, romper and high heels. She jumped in an Uber and headed to a social pub. She thought a public place would be safe option for a first-time meeting.

Diane sat at the bar.  She waves at the bartender. “Can I get a vodka and cranberry?”

She checks her phone for texts. A wave of fear comes over her and she thinks what the hell am I doing? I should leave. Then she remembers how she has her shower head working overtime, so she needs to calm down and order another drink.

A below average looking guy walks up to Diane. She pretends she doesn’t see him.

“How are you today?” He attempts a smile.

Diane looks him up and down with disdain.

“I’m waiting on some people, and they’ll be here any minute.” Diane turns her back on him and takes a sip of her drink.

“I didn’t mean to disturb you, maybe…”

“No thanks to whatever it is.” Diane states bluntly. “You seem like a nice guy, but you’re not my type.”

“Not hot enough, eh?”

“Not for me, sorry.”

“Well you weren’t hot enough for that couple you were meeting, so they thought I should come over here and talk to you, because you were in desperate need to get laid. They left.”
