I’m down to less than 70 emails in my work inbox, so I figure it’s time to go back to blog stuff. There are no work crises for me to attend to and for crying out loud, I’m working all weekend.
So, I dug through the folder of archived screen shots I have that remind me of funny / sad / annoying things in online dating and elsewhere, and I thought I would share them with you. I think I’ve almost run out of these, since I haven’t been online dating in quite a while now.
A Really Nice Opening Message:
We are always slamming male opening messages on online dating, so this time I thought I’d share one that was really nice. He was very far away; I think I may have responded back simply to say it was a lovely message and thank you for the compliment.
A true sign someone is using the “shotgun” approach:
Sorry, nope. This tells me that this guy doesn’t remember messaging me in the first place, so it doesn’t exactly make me feel special.
Anyway, he should know better than to expect a woman to text someone right away…I only gave away my mobile after I’d established a level of connection with someone.
The male equivalent of what I do when someone is ignoring me:
So I may have exaggerated a little… I never did this to anyone when they never responded to my opening line. I give the guy credit for perseverance, but perhaps wait a bit longer before you send your follow up?
Sometimes, a sense of humor is important
It should be stated that the “energy and stamina” line was his opener. I had no interest but couldn’t resist responding to that one. Shockingly, I got no response to my reading message. I might have reconsidered had he come back with something witty in response.
