On Friday morning, I received this message on OKC:
just wanted to say hi, let me know if your interested
Ugh, I absolutely cannot stand it when someone does not use capitalization or punctuation, and doesn't know the difference between your and you're. BUT, he's an 83% match, so I thought I'd reply to see how he responds:
Well, you'd have to pique my interest first! How would I know if I'm interested with just a "hi?"
He wrote back:
I thought you might review my profile, i would think if you didn't like that, then you wouldn't respond. But you did, so maybe you are interested? Too deep for me. lol
happy friday, hope to hear from you again
Okay, so knowing how to carry on a conversation is too deep? I replied:
I haven't checked out your profile yet. I need to be enticed to do so...

How about telling me what struck you about my profile and prompted you to write? I'd like to know that you actually read the thing. And tell me something about yourself. I need something to go on!
I didn't hear back from him.

So, yesterday, I decided to actually check out his profile and I found these gems:
What I’m doing with my life
i don't know, why am i on here? First priority is finding a good woman, intelligent, healthy and attractive....Well it doesn't hurt to dream.

I’m really good at
Running, laughing, talking about almost anything
He's good at laughing... okey dokey. Claims to be good at "talking about almost anything," yet he doesn't know how to engage in a conversation! Hmm.

Three of his "six things I could never do without" are
females, there's always something beautiful about each one
fantasies
love/sex, hopefully together


Then...
On a typical Friday night I am
trying to avoid the Friday night traffic, we can find something to do at home.
Woo-fucking-hoo. What a fun guy.
And:
You should message me if
if you read this far...especially if your interested in developing a serious monogamous relationship...please no long interviews, let's just meet for a cup of coffee. one more thing, if your really into money, or have a lot of it, i don't! lol
So, I wrote him again:
Hi again ___ - I visited your profile and see you are looking for a "serious monogamous relationship." Obviously you did not read my profile before contacting me, as I am not into exclusivity. So, we would not be compatible.

Good luck in your search!
Almost immediately, I get a reply which makes him sound so desperate:
HI, I THOUGHT IT WAS INTERESTING WHAT YOU WROTE, I WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW I'M RECONSIDERING THE MONOGAMY THING BECAUSE OF OKCUPID. NEVER THOUGHT I WOULD SAY THAT, BUT THERES A LOT OF UN TO BE HAD ON HARE, MAYBE I SHOULDN'T TRY TO BE SO SERIOU. DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE? OOPS, ALL CAPS, NO TIME TO REWRITE..TTYL
Loser.
