I have learned that no matter how long you spend on a dating website, no matter what you write on your profile, and no matter how socially acceptable it is to be on a dating website, you will never stop receiving messages from some guys who just want to sleep with you…
Random Guy: Hey you seem like you could be really awesome to hang out with and do more, you up for something “casual?” I don’t think casual needs much clarification.
Myself: Are you a complete stranger sending me an initial message asking if I would like to meet you to have sex with you, though my profile doesn’t specify I’m interested in anything like that? If not, please do specify “casual” with your little quotation marks…I mean did you go with that because “Hello, person I have not met before, I think it would be awesome to have sex with you and I was just wondering if you were up for it?” didn’t have a nice ring to it?
Random Guy: [WEBSITE LINK CENSORED]
Myself: Yeah, I’m not going to click a random link after the above conversation…
Random Guy: yeah well its about social conditioning. google it.
Myself: Meh, didn’t care enough to google it, sorry.
Myself: Oh and no thank you to the sex. Really? Do people not listing “looking for casual sex” on their profile go for that as an initial message? Well, good luck to you…
Lol. So lame of him. Way to be so forward! I just wrote a pretty funny blog post about first dates…if you eventually find a guy maybe you’d like to check it out! http://thelindycity.wordpress.com/2013/11/05/why-starbucks-is-the-best-place-for-a-first-date/
It’s so true… My profile specifically says “if you message me, please say something other than “hi” or “how’s it going”. Just tell me a bit about yourself and give me something to respond to.”
And yet… 95% of the messages I get are still just “hey” or “how’s it going” and nothing else. Fools.
