Maybe I’m not ready to re-enter the cesspool of online dating just yet. I just logged on to read the e-mail that Mr-I-Rated-You-5-Stars sent me and yeah, I’m not loving him. I’m wavering between thinking he’s a pompous ass or just that he’s a big ole’ douchebag and this is his idea of a ‘form’ message. Mind you, while reading it, that my profile says absolutely nothing about camping, so no clue why he went off on that tangent. And while it ends a bit charmingly self-deprecating, the rest of it just sort of makes him sound like an ass. You decide:
Well what do you know? Great minds think alike!
What a pleasant surprise! I figured this site was full of false profiles and/or people who were looking to banter idly while life rushes past them.
I am a little more of a camper than hotel guy but only because it makes the hotel than much more sweet when I am there. I really like the Westin’s Heavenly Mattress too bad they are not allowed as carry on luggage.
Would it make sense for us to exchange emails and/or cell#s to continue a dialog in a less than asynchronous fashion?
I use big words to over compensate for my low self-esteem and massive feelings of inadequacy or just like the word asynchronous. 😛
Now I won’t bother telling you that my response to him was a little bit harsh and that while I did commend him on his big vocabulary, that the use of his word of choice struck me as a way to just ‘talk above’ people. And I did inform him that although I have a decent vocabulary myself, that I seldom use it to ‘stump’ people. I may have also asked him if he even bothered to read my profile as his message has nothing to do with anything that I have in there and that I am, in fact, more of a hotel gal than a camping one. If he responds back, he may be up the challenge that is me these days, but I’m guessing that my less than mooning response won’t prompt a quick reply 😉
I mean really? Does this stuff usually work for him? Too bad his profile was actually a bit entertaining. Pretty sure though that this was a copy and paste from some other profile he contacted that did happen to mention camping ……. weirdo.
