I swear, if anyone finds my ‘game’, please return it to me. It’s been missing for way too long and it’s getting tiring coming off as a total retard all the time. 😉 Of course, I’m talking about my reply to very handsome 35 year old from 2 days ago. I waited until the next day to respond and in my quest to sound cavalier and make sure that he realized that I wasn’t racing towards a ring (really? why do I think this way), I responded to his cute message with a semi entertaining, semi ridiculous response. I wanted to make sure that he didn’t think I was a big fat loser for being on Match (which hello? he’s on Match, so what’s the issue?) For your reading
mockery pleasure :
Hi Handsome 35 Year Old,
So glad you replied (and are willing to make exceptions on the age thing). That is absolutely hysterical that you’re a fan of the Brady Bunch too! Even moreso that you admit it. And that you bothered to read the snippets on the side of my profile ;-). I’m suitably impressed. And down for the challenge. Nick at Nite used to show reruns all the time, but I haven’t seen one in ages, so it might be tough to actually see who prevails in the 5 second Name That Brady Bunch Episode challenge.
I’ve been on Match since the end of February but really haven’t had time to do much of anything with it. I’ve met a couple of guys, but nothing that has stuck. I’m certainly not someone who feels like I ‘have’ to be with someone, but rather ‘want’ to be, so if it’s not right, it’s not right. I’m kinda picky that way. 😉 How about you?
Love that you cook. Never had anyone that was confident enough to do that for me (which is totally ridiculous as I’d appreciate a pb & j from someone as long as I didn’t have to make it myself). 🙂
Looking forward to hearing more about you!
All together now! I’m an idiot. Not sure why I felt the need to sound like a snotty bitch (totally not my intention) regarding dating. I never really know how to respond to inquiries about ‘how it’s been going’ on whatever particular site. I mean, should I just give them a link to my blog so they can read for themselves how it’s been going? 😉 I usually have a better ‘stock answer’ than the stupid one that this cutie got, but oh well, nothing I can do about it now. This is certainly not one of my best e-mail messages. I pretty much just sound like a moron. Great. I much prefer for them to not discover what a tremendous dork I am until during/after the 1st date. Not quite sure why I feel the need to over-explain things. I do it all the time. And it’s annoying.
Did I happen to mention that I have this awesome feature on Match that allows me to see if and when a certain message that I sent was read? Yeah, I sent it yesterday. Yeah, he read it yesterday. Yeah, no response ………. dammit.
Yes, I know, I may hear back from him today, but c’mon if you got such a douchey message from someone, would you respond? I didn’t think so ……… *sigh* and I had such high hopes for a meaningless bike ride with this one post Brady-Bunch-Game. Dammit. Maybe I will take Sean’s suggestion to have you all help me compose replies to guys that I’m interested in so I don’t stick my foot in my mouth so soon in the game. Don’t worry, it won’t be much work. I don’t like all that many. 😉
