** Going through my drafts folder, I keep finding these little gems that although are more than 2 years old, still seem to apply to the world of online dating. Lucky me?**
There seems to be a new trend in my stellar world of online dating. And you all know that by ‘stellar’, I mean ‘shitty’, right? I’ve corresponded with some seemingly really good guys lately. There was the teacher that very sweetly declined my invitation to
fall in love with me message me. There was the terrific guy with all the water toys that seemed so sweet and kind and funny. There was the Golfer who I actually met, liked and was looking forward to seeing again. All of these men are different in very distinct ways. Looks, height, education, career, age ….. they are flung far and wide (see? I’m trying to broaden my horizons). They all have one thing in common though. And I’m none too pleased about it.
Each and every one of these men messaged me last. Very sweet and somewhat flirty messages. Messages that made me smile. Messages that prompted me to sign on
to respond. Messages that were apparently sent mere minutes before each and every one of them either hid their profiles or blocked me never to be heard from again. What. The. Fuck.?
What’s the point of that? I’ll never know. At least I still have Arkansas who is currently not only bugging the shit out of me with repeated messages that go something like “hi, how are you? when can we meet?” (after I’ve told him repeatedly that I am swamped with work and that I don’t think our schedules match up). He also sends me messages addressing me as ‘gorgeous’ and telling me that I’m ‘hot’. Uhm, shouldn’t I find this flattering? I don’t. I find them highly creepy. *sigh*
