My friend Katharine wanted me to take a look at a guy who has reached out to her on a dating site. My profile is still down. But when I login, I see that I have a new message – WTF?
One guess who it is (you can read about him here).
It’s Shenanigans (aka “P”). An email from the March 31… just a few days after I wrote the post above, all pissed off because I couldn’t even ignore him.
His message says: His message says “Ah you’re back. I just searched your name and you popped up. :)”
I was fully committed to ignoring him. I really was. But then I thought about it, and realized I inadvertently (not that he knows that) waited almost a week to respond.
Before I even thought about how I could be coy and bitchy (I’m not a game player by nature so it’s work to think about how to be one) I typed out a response:
“Not sure why…my profile is still down. Weird. I logged in to try to see how i could get rid of annoying “you have new matches” emails…perhaps that’s why.”
WHY WHY WHY WHY WHY?
Now, I’m proud of myself that I didn’t add the “how are you?” or any other such conversation openers. But I still couldn’t resist…like a moth to a flame. But of course, he’s now responded:
“…I thought we were texting, why did you stop texting me?”
As of writing this, it’s been 30 hours since he sent it and I still haven’t responded. I don’t know if I should.
