My first week on OKCupid, Wendigo's wife, Pretty Lady's cousin messaged me asking if I knew her. . . . I finally had to respond that I did because I had put that she's one of my favorite authors, but it was really awkward because I do mention having a husband and boyfriend in my profile and they are not out to their family.

Put yourself in his shoes, he must be very lonely other than that.
Hehe!

You're very beautiful how are you doing tonight?So you think you can keep up and handle a younger man who is hung like a horse?
I immediately responded:

Quote:
"A horse's penis (from geldings and stallions) averages at around 24 to 30 inches long, or 2.5 to 3.5 feet long, depending on whether it's erect or not."

Poor dear. Must be tough to find the right woman. :P
He didnt respond to that.

No doubt every one of the guys featured honestly wonders why women (or, as some of them seem to prefer "those bitches") aren't throwing themselves at him in droves.
I apologize, this is slightly off-topic, but I just read this amazing article, and it repeats a whole bunch of stuff these 'nice guys' say. It's about misogyny in the world of gamers, and I wept through most of it. It's long, and beautiful, and it has gone a long way towards healing me tonight.

Hm ... I hope there haven't been casualties up to now that I need to worry about

I love how they tell you how much they want you, but don't have any ability to sell themselves. It's like, OK, I know you want "me" (ie: you're horny), why should I want you? Just your own desire does not inspire mine!

Very true! I also hate messages from people that have no bothered to answer a single question. It's a tool to help define who you are, so use it so that others can determine if you're their flavor or not.
