About a year ago, an old roommate (dude) of mine signed up for online dating with OK Cupid. He met a girl. It didn't work out. But still, he told me I should sign up. Reluctantly, I did. I never planned on meeting someone...
And I didn't. Because I don't respond to creepy ass messages from strangers on the internet. However, it is fun to check my junk mail (where the messages go) every now and then to laugh at the things guys must think girls want to hear.
A few recent examples:
Are you a 4th grader? No cause 4th graders can spell "you're".
Umm.. No thanks.
Well, would you consider giving me free pedicures?
Get away from me.
I've also seen multiple people I went to high school with, someone I know who is MARRIED, I've gotten way too many messages that start with the words "hey there [insert one of the following:] beautiful, gorgeous, pretty, and lovely", and, worst of all...someone with the username "exconwithtats" messaged me...
Is your name Faye?
Uh oh. No. No it's not.
Now, I'm not knocking online dating for everyone. The commercials tell me that 1 in 5 relationships now begin online and I say -- that's great. But I want to be one of the other 4.
Okay, now I'm off to go Facebook stalk boys I think are cute cause that's totally not the same thing.
