Nope, not me. Don’t suffer from that affliction (very much). I’m talking about all the douchebags online that will totally open with a ‘duh, we should meet’. No niceties, nothing about profiles or interests or anything. Just a ‘let’s meet’. Every now and again I call someone out on their bullshit. And not in the traditional way. It’s like a game of poker. I’ll see your ‘let’s meet’ and even add a day and a time. And then the big ole’ pussies wimp out.
It’s soo funny. I sent a message to a guy last week who sort of looks like Mr Clean. Bald, big muscles, nice eyes (so not my usual type) but his profile was funny. He mentioned that he liked 70s music. I said that I was afraid my love of the 80s might clash with his love of the 70s, but that it couldn’t hurt to find out. Meaning, let’s see if we have anything in common. He sends back ‘I’m game if you are. Let’s meet.’ Uh, what?!? Okay, whatever, I’ll meet this guy, I don’t care, we all know i’m fairly fearless about meeting new people and the worse that could happen is that we don’t get along and I get a drink out of it. Or I could end up locked in the trunk of his car cut into tiny pieces, but whatever. So he sends his suave message and I send back ‘Gee, you really need to get over your shyness. I’m free on Thursday, let’s meet for a drink after work’ to which he sends back ‘uh, Thursday may work’.
Whatever dude. I just gave you a total ‘in’ and you pussed out. It’s Tuesday for heaven’s sake, when do you think you’re going to tell me if Thursday will work or not. Gee, too bad too as I think we had a bright future together . 😉 Oh, and just guess what craptastic website this winner was from? Yup, POF ~ land of the never actually meeting anyone in person site.
Honestly though, if these idiots are going to throw meeting up out there right off the bat, they should probably be prepared to man up and actually do it. Geesh……
