I met a guy for lunch today and it was an identical experience to almost every other guy I've met for the last 3 years. He spent 2 hours telling me everything in the world about his life including the address where he lived when he was 7 years old and the balance in his IRA. He never once asked me anything about myself. He never commented on anything about my appearance or even let me say more than 3 words. He insisted on making me promise that I would call him when I got home so he would know I would be home safe. I Protested and protested telling him that I had been to Europe by myself so I knew I could get home safely. I don't want to ghost someone but I did not want to tell him when I was home safe.
He's obviously a very lonely old man but he'll stay that way unless he learns to show some interest in the people around him.
