"he stole her number from the restaurant's wall"

Ouch. It's REALLY must hurt to be turned down by that kind of girl!
 
2012-11-22 01:38:44 AM  
Awwwww. He's pretty hansome too. I'm sure there are plenty of women who would love to be stalked by a guy like that.
 
2012-11-22 01:52:44 AM  
I've never seen a 16-foot yacht.

A Turkey post? Must be close to Thanksgiving.

Less Turkish Delight and more Midnight Express.

My dinghy is bigger.

BarkingUnicorn: 16-foot yacht


For reference, here is what a 16-foot boat looks like.

That's quite an obsession, if you are willing to travel for 8 monts on such a thing.

Admiral Anal at your service m'am.

Given that she turned him down for a date the first time and then got married, I'm going to say "what a maroon."
 
2012-11-22 09:55:11 AM  
He didn't even get a valid passport first? How did someone this incompetent and short-sighted ever manage to run a successful business?

"Mr Culum, who once ran a mobile phone company"

Oh.

Can't find a Courtney Murray in Liverpool on Facebook, but when I do I'll profess my undying love as well.

Seriously dude, plenty of other fish in the sea.

The yacht in question:

2012-11-22 09:58:58 AM  
Sixteen foot yacht?
His boat is definitely too small.
That chick would require at least a 90-footer to drop her panties.
Plus, he's Turkish.
Plus, his facebook page doesn't have a profile picture, just a black square with the word, "Courtney"
 
2012-11-22 09:59:05 AM  
Sure, she's quite hot. But not 8 month sea voyage in a 16 foot yacht hot.
 
2012-11-22 09:59:10 AM  
 
2012-11-22 09:59:59 AM  
he said something about he's cumming and for her to pray for him.

apparently, its going to be one massive load saved up over years.

Need_MindBleach: Given that she turned him down for a date the first time and then got married, I'm going to say "what a maroon."


Yeah, you meet a girl once when she's visiting your country. She turns you down. You don't let that stop you, and you stalk her, and decide to set off on an 8,000 mile maritime voyage in what is essentially a dinghy, without passport or visa, expecting to just surprise her in her homeland and expect her to dump everything and be with you.

I mean yeah, if it worked the movie rights alone would have made them rich. That would probably be a huge film hit, but the odds against it working were a million to one.

Yeah, he needs to be arrested. I'd say a psychiatric evaluation might also be in order.

In other words, he resold burners on the streets of Izmir.

Looks a bit nicer than that, has a small cabin. Image at the top is image 1 of 2, 2nd image is of his boat.

I know all about that restraining order thingee. I got it at the same time the police gave me my "wooden shampoo."

Apparently not. Also apparently a mobile game company and not a mobile phone company, but maybe he moved from phones to games. http://www.mobilenter.com/

2,500 miles in 8 months is about 10 miles per day. Dude could have walked there faster.

Yes, reindeer games and obsessions.

If that dude had a far wallet, he'd already be married to some Turkish lady.

Joe Peanut: 2,500 miles in 8 months is about 10 miles per day. Dude could have walked there faster.


Or he could have taken a bus, plane, or train, or even driven.

But that would have required fares, immigration documents, etc. Probably couldn't afford it.

Hahahahahaahaha. Oh you are so FUNNY. That is so FUNNY. Did you think that one up yourself? Oh you are hilarious. Unfortunately, I've heard it before--about 800 million times now. But still, nice try. Probably the best you're capable of, right? Maybe you should buy a gun and a big truck.

You know, a lot of small businesses have a sheet of paper in the office or behind the bar with employee contact info, in case a shift suddenly needs covering.

Didn't we have a Sun story earlier this year about a Canadian who planned to return to Ireland to search for "the love of his life" whose name he never got?

Trivial point...
According to folklore, rain on one's wedding day was considered lucky.
Inconvenient, sure...but still lucky.

He's not trying to be funny. This is just one of the lies that Linux dweebs tell themselves to explain why they can't get laid.

You know what's really funny? The number of online dating sites designed so pretty women can find rich men, and vice versa. That's a lot funnier than some random fat wallet crack, for sure.

farking creepy!

Guys, really, stop stalking us. It's not endearing, we're not going to fall in love with you or back in love with you.
Just... stop.
 
2012-11-22 10:45:41 AM  
Excuse me, Mr. untaken_name, may I ask why the hell you have links to so many dreamy dating websites? It's kind of funny.
