So yes, I was window shopping yet again this evening. This time on Chemistry. Which is pretty much just as bad as E-harmony as far as sending unsuitable matches. At least their ‘personality profile’ only took about 15 minutes versus 3 days. 😉
Anywho, I was perusing the goods (ha) and came across a semi-interesting one. And by semi-interesting I mean that he wasn’t horrifying looking, he wrote in complete sentences and seemed to have a sense of humor. Sure , he is only 5’10” (same as me), but eh, what the hell. Chemistry has this lame thing that when they send you profiles you click either ‘no way in hell’ (or something like that) or ‘i’m interested’. If you select I’m interested, it then gives you an option to add a personalized message/e-mail to the person otherwise they just get a notification that so-and-so is interested. Of course, I put absolutely NO effort into this these days, so I just clicked the interested thing and passed on the wasting of any energy to actually compose an e-mail. 😉 I’m a peach, I know.
Well not 2 seconds later, I get a ‘he’s interested in you’ back as well as an e-mail. Ugh, really? I was kinda sorta not really caring if he ever made contact. So I open his e mail and what does it say? “Thank you for your interest. I do not quite meet your height requirement (as I have 5’11” + on my ‘wants’) but it doesn’t bother me if it doesn’t bother you.’ Oy vey. Really? Of course I read his profile and know how tall his is. I’m not some douchey guy who just goes around showing interest into everyone to see who responds without bothering to read profiles (at least not on this website, that is) hee hee.
So although I wanted to respond with ‘no shit sherlock, i know how tall you are, i’m not blind and i actually read profiles before clicking that i’m interested’ I toned it down a bit to ‘thanks for the message. Being as I actually read your profile, I’m well aware that you’re only my height and that’s okay with me’ ……….. see, I can be only a semi-bitch sometimes. I think I’m just too tired to put my full effort into being truly snarky. 😉 As I’m fairly certain that since he put he’s 5’10” in his profile that means he’s actually only 5’8″, it’s a pretty moot point anyway. 😉
