So my profile has been un-hidden on Match for a little over a week now. And I am already annoyed. Why? Not because inappropriately aged men are contacting me. Not even because ZZ Top look alikes are contacting me. Not even because they even sent me a ‘match’ today that had his nose pierced. Twice. Up front. With hoops. Like a bull. Lucky me. Needless to say, I passed on the opportunity to start up a chat with him.
There was a very cute guy who winked at me probably about a month ago. After reading his profile and finding that we actually had a lot in common, I responded not with my usual ‘you do all the work’ wink back, but with a cute little message. Of course, I never heard back from him. Whatever. Until yesterday. When he sent me a wink again. So either he’s just an idiot with a memory worse than mine and doesn’t recall that he already winked at me (no clue how he managed to send a 2nd one, btw) or he’s got multiple profiles up and isn’t actually a member so just winks at everyone. There’s also option C. That he’s just a dick and knows exactly what he’s doing. Fine, I can play too. I winked back. Too bad there is no option to flip someone off on there. I’d promise to keep everyone posted on what happens, but I’m pretty sure that will be a big, fat nothing.
After I got done scratching my head about that guy, I read a message from someone else. Someone who I am quite certain is lying about his age, but as he ‘says’ he’s actually 4 years younger than I am, I’m hoping that he’s actually not over 50. He looks like a nice, white bread, boring kinda guy. And he knew my name. WTF? He said we had corresponded briefly when he 1st joined about 2 years ago. I was kinda impressed that he remembered not only my face (all new pics, thank you very much), but my name. Again we’ve got a few options to choose from here. He’s either a stalker, an idiot savant, a very nice man with a very good memory, or he keeps a spreadsheet. As the message he wrote me was pleasant enough, I figured I’d respond. I was very nice and complimented him on his terrific memory. I also complimented him on his profile (as it was well written). In response, I got an explanation that no, he doesn’t actually keep a spread sheet, but just took a guess (really?). Along with that I got the amazing statement/question/insult of “wow. You’ve been on here a long time. What’s the deal? There are nice guys on here.” Uhm, I can now see why we only corresponded briefly back then and never met. Are you kidding me? I will write him back and say that yes, although I have been on for half a lifetime, I’ve only been ‘active’ on there for a quarter of a lifetime and just because someone is ‘nice’ doesn’t mean that they’re ‘right’. For me.
And just for the record, I kinda think nice guys are temporarily out of stock where I live. Just sayin’ ……. Oy, and I just went back to look at his profile and in his main pic, he’s throwing a sideways ‘peace’ sign. Uhm …… I’m speechless….
