So I received a wink from a gentleman one town over. While his profile was very straightforward (aka: harsh) it also contained a bit of humor at the end saying that if he sends a wink or an e-mail, to take it seriously. He also stated that he looked forward to hearing from the ‘firecracker’ who contacts him. I opted to take him up on that challenge and sent a cute, lighthearted message. You tell me what you think:
Me: Soooooo, how come I only got a wink instead of a full fledged e-mail? (and I signed my name)
In response, I get:
Thanks….I’d love to play “20 questions” but not via e-mail..My number is xxx-xxx-xxxx…asking you to call me is a BS filter—–I want reality,…. Please be real (and he didn’t sign his name)
My first instinct was to think this guy is an asshole. As I’m working on not reacting so fast and thinking things through a bit more in 2013 though, I waited until today to reconsider what my reply should be. Yup, same as yesterday, I think his message was rude, so this is what he got:
Wow, uhm, although I am very ‘real’ and find BS a huge waste of time, I’m not a fan of starting anything off on such a negative and cynical note, so I am going to pass on making use of your phone number. Best of luck in your search.
As an unsolicited word of advice, you might want to remove the chip from your shoulder and actually include your name when responding to someone.
And then I blocked the big idiot ……….. whose screen name happened to be “PerfectGntlmanXXXX” ……. uhm, I’d like to disagree (and truth be told, to unblock him so I can see if he responds …… but that would be immature, right?) ;-p
