Online Dating - The Sequel

Well, as you all know by now, or hopefully you know, as it would be silly of you to read a sequel without having read the original (located directly below this post.), Kirk has been set up on an Online Dating service.
So far there have been two responses to enquiring e-mails made by me, acting as Kirk. Now let me specify, when I send a potential date or match an e-mail in his name, I keep it short and make it fairly generic, but throw in a level of humour and interest which I know he is capable or more than capable of matching.
So, one of the girls who’s responded has asked to know a bit more about Kirk. I will have to notify Kirk about this girl’s interest, so that he can continue the correspondence himself.

Now, here’s the rub.

It turns out that on Sunday night when I was completing Kirk’s profile, and sending out ice breaker e-mails to women on the dating service that appeared to be appropriate matches, I was on MSN talking to my friend Greg, Kirk’s roommate. Now, once I had noticed that Kirk had received an e-mail from an interested female, I told Greg to tell Kirk about the online dating service, and that he had a response from someone.
Greg messaged me back and said; “Kirk wants to know what she’s like.” I told Greg to have Kirk go online himself and check it out, but Greg told me he was busy working on the computer and would relay the information to Kirk, who would then check the site later on in the evening.
Now, of course, I believed Greg was actually telling Kirk everything I was saying, and the answers I received to my questions were coming from Kirk.
I was wrong.
And I found out about my error last night, when Kirk called, asking me why he had been signed up on Casual Kiss, and why we were trying to set him up with a pregnant girl. By the way, the girl who responded to Kirk / Me is due to have a baby in October.
I tried to explain to Kirk that he already knew about this girl, and she was the one I was talking about when I asked him all the questions, including what do you think about a pregnant girl?
Kirk denied any knowledge of the dating site, and a pregnant girl.
Now, this is bad news. Because I had responded to the pregnant girl’s e-mail, with answers, which I thought were supplied by Kirk, to some questions of hers, one of which was regarding her being pregnant.
It turns out the answers were being given to me by Greg, having been made up by Greg, and thus translated into passable English, minus severe profanity, and inserted into a response e-mail by me.
The situation, as it now stands, is that Kirk is mad because he’s on an on-line dating service, he’s angry because a pregnant girl is interested in him, and thinks he’s interested back, and I’m the one taking all the blame, because I was the person who actually filled in all the information and wrote the e-mail. Fortunately for me, I’ve explained the situation to Kirk, and he will now be beating the crap out of our lying roommate Greg.
My dilemma, is how do I now tell this girl that Kirk just wants to be friends, without hurting her feelings? I’m thinking of trying to convince Kirk that dating a girl who is having a baby wouldn’t be such a bad thing, but if that doesn’t work, what do I do??
Thanks in advance for all your good advice bloggers !
