My ever dwindling ego continues to do so thanks to online dating. I’ve been messaging and texting back and forth with a seemingly cute, tall and nice guy. I liked his profile, thought his pictures were attractive and he could spell. What more could a gal ask for? I assume he liked my profile and photos as well. I’m good about pictures, I make sure to put face shots, full body shots (no, no alcohol included) and always have at least 4 posted at any given time and update them.
I sort of find it annoying when guys ask for more pictures. Hello? If they think the pics I have up are outdated or not accurate, don’t they think I’d be smart enough to send the additional requested pic that was equally outdated? I may take it wrong when guys ask for more pictures as I assume they want to ‘double check’ that I look how I look. Why else would they want them?
When I told him that I didn’t have any on my phone to send him, he asked for a selfie. Ack! I not only hate selfies but am incapable of taking a good one. I’m always so worried about getting a good shot and concentrating on looking in the right area that I always have this weirdly painful looking smirk. And I mean always.
Anywho, as he seemed nice enough and did send me un-requested selfies of himself, I figured I’d bite the bullet and send one. Mind you it took me ALL damn day to get one that I felt was shareable. So I sent it. And put the caption that this was as good as my selfie-challenged abilities got and adding that I hoped he had a great day.
And that was yesterday. And I never heard back. Sure he could have dropped his phone in the toilet or was so impressed and amazed by my stunning beauty that he is still trying to formulate a non stuttering response, but I’m just guessing that he didn’t like what he saw. Which, to be clear, is pretty much exactly what I have posted online. Ouch.
