So as I was
trolling perusing Match.com last night, I came across a terrific profile. Tall, blonde and just sounded like a really good guy. A good head on his shoulders, a good heart and a generally good outlook on life. I was not only surprised that I couldn’t find anything wrong with what he wrote (as I can do that with just about anyone), but he has the cutest smile ever! Eh, what the hell? I’ll write him a quick note, couldn’t hurt right? So I write my simple, ‘you seem like a terrific guy with a great outlook on life. oh and your very nice smile doesn’t hurt either, blah blah’ and off to bed I go expecting never to hear from him again as is par for the course.
Well much to my surprise and pleasure this morning, I had a message waiting from him! Yey! Not only is he attractive (to me) and sounds great, but he doesn’t play the stupid ‘let’s wait 4 days to reply (if ever)’ game. I was already planning out our 1st date, our impending romance and our future wedding complete with nice house, dog and picket fence. Finally! A good one! So with a big ole’ smile on my face I open his message:
Thank you for the reply. After reading your profile, I think there are a lot a qualities that match up with us, but I am not sure that there would be enough to look further into the future. I do wish you the best in your search for a great guy in your life.
No clue if this is his stock answer that he sends out to people that he’s not interested in, but of course I translated it into me-speak of: ”Thanks for the contact, but I find you neither interesting, intelligent, attractive nor worthy of my time to at least attempt to see if we in fact might have something potentially good’
Huh, not a good way to start the day after all. Oh well, at least he took the time to send his nice kiss off. 😦
