Okay, so this guy who happens to be wearing sunglasses in all of his pics (a little strange) has sent me a couple of e-mails off of match. They are sort of like big ole’ wandering run on sentences. He changes subjects with no warning, pulls topics out of the sky to ‘respond’ to (that I didn’t ask) and just generally confuses me.
He sent me one e-mail like this and I sent back, in proper paragraph form a response explaining what I do for work (i guess no one can actually read where it says what I do for a living under ‘what you do for a living’?), what part of town I live in and one other thing that I can’t remember. Because he asked me. He had also thrown into the e-mail that he likes movies and hiking (yes, I know everyone in Phoenix apparently loves hiking – whatever). The only question that I threw in was to ask what types of movies he likes. That was it. Answer his questions and ask 1 of my own. This is what he sends me for a response:
“I’ve been pretty busy too. I have to work on Saturday again. Twelve hours. Other people don’t have work and I have too much. Anyhow I really like funny movies more than any other kind. I do alot of hiking. Have you ever been to Dave and Busters? I don’t know where you live but I’ve been there before and had a blast. If you’re working I hope you’re making lots of money!”
Okay, so he talked about work. Fine. He told me he likes comedies. Fine. He told me he likes hiking (again). Whatever. I guess I just don’t know where the Dave & Busters thing comes in. Is this his awkward way to ask if I would like to go? I don’t know. It’s just so out of place and such a random thing to write.
I’m thinking of responding:
“Hi. Yes, work has been busy. I like long walks on the beach and listening to the ocean. I find it peaceful. I like going on vacation. I like the Carribbean. Vodka is good. My dog’s name is Bean. Coral is my favorite color. I’ve been to Dave & Buster’s once. I once pushed a guy in a pool at a party because he was mean to me in high school.”
I’m just confused. And not sure that I even want to meet someone anymore that I’m not totally excited about. I know that goes against every rule of internet dating, but eh ………..
Don’t worry though. I’m sure i’ll be back to my ‘the more the merrier’ self sometime before the weekend ends. 🙂
