Oh, the joys of on-line dating! I’ve been corresponding with a few people here and there, but it’s sh*t like this that takes the cake!
CARRIE: Thanks for your email. I like what I read in your profile, but why do you only have one photo?
BRANDON: Questioning my age and whether the photo is real or not is understandable – I suppose; but since you seem to have doubts about me already, I don’t think we are a good fit. Too bad–you’re a gorgeous woman.
What kind of sh*t is that? A perfect example of a fake profile! He knew that’s where our conversation was leading to and he wouldn’t be able to provide anymore photo’s of himself. This is the kinda of crap that I have to weed through.
This guy is probably a bored married man, sitting in his office cubicle, hiding behind his fake profile, and looking for some company on-line. Mother! Oh, and by the way, he deleted his profile after our last communication – or did he block me?
MARY: I think you might have winked me twice! I honestly don’t usually respond to those who don’t have much filled out in their profile – did you know there are fake profiles on here? 🙂 Usually the ones that are that short and don’t have much filled out are ones to beware of, but I get the feeling you’re not one of them. And by the way, you’re quite handsome.
RICH: Thanks. Don’t be so jaded.
Excuse me? What did he just say? Prrrrrrrrick! Mary, I can see the red, warning flag being hoisted up the pole already!
RICH: You’re already in “defense” mode via your email, which is a turn-off. Lighten up. No one owes you anything on here.
Lighten up? Oh, he did not just say that. He’s a “Let-Me-Make-You-Feel-Like-There’s-Something-Wrong-With-You,” fucker.
Can I say “fucker” on here?
MARY: Not jaded, and not really good of you to say that when you don’t know me – I’m careful, as a woman should be. Maybe when you reach my age, you’ll understand.
RICH: Careful of what?
Clearly, he’s oblivious AND insensitive. Tell him, Mary, careful of those pricks like you!
MARY: You’re completely mistaken, and don’t tell people to lighten up when you don’t know them – you don’t know the types of freaks on here that contact me. My email was fairly sweet and open; it was just explaining why I didn’t respond the first time. Good luck with speaking like that to the women on here, apparently, you need someone who is a bit more naive.
And then she told me she blocked him. LOVE the “block” option.
On-line dating….IS SUCH A JOY!
