Fakes death to escape date
A woman apparently pretended to have died just so she could get out of dating a man she had met online.
Ann Gray, 29, from Somerset, UK, said that she had been seeing a man she met on an online dating site, according to The Mirror.
After the third date Ann invited him around for a meal but later made up her mind that he wasn't for her.
But when she tried to let her date down gently over text messages, it was clear he wasn't getting the hint.
Ann says: "He continued to message me and the day came when he sent me one stating 'I think we need to have a date tonight! I will be around your house in 30 minutes.'"
So she decided to take drastic measures.
Ann never received a reply from her former date, but she did say that he caught her on the dating website again a couple of months later.
"He sent me a horrid message! Can't say I blame him, really. I am currently engaged to be married and not dead!"
