Ooh, and I love how he digs at your age!

Didn't you know that at your age you should be GRATEFUL for any attention from ANYONE AT ALL??

EWWWW. You were totally right to tell him off.

I'm also skeptical that a polite "no thanks" is ever worthwhile. Usually it prompts people [men] to respond with things like, "Aw come on, gimme a chance", or to say nasty things.

Yesterday, in response to me telling someone he lived too far away, he kept begging me to text him, giving me his number, suggesting he pay for a hotel in my area [despite no casual sex on my profile], etc, until I blocked him.

So, I'm all for ignoring instead of politely saying no.

Then why are you on OKC hunting down people 150 miles away? If he's so swamped with sexy local chickas, why not go fuck one of them and leave you alone? Oh right, because obviously, he's full of shit.

Or more likely... there are many sexy, younger women HERE... and they all politely told him to pipe the fuck down.

Yeah funny that... see, most old terms tend to die out of language when their usage is no longer applicable. When's the last time you referred to a "fob" as the chain that secures your pocket watch to your vest, and not the doohicky you use to unlock your car doors from across the parking lot?

I just block them right away. I can't be bothered.

That being said, I have deactivated my profile for a while. Two guys I'd been messaging both recently disappeared, and I haven't seen any others worth contacting.

Whatever... I'm at school and always looking for something to procrastinate on, so we chat a bit about open relationships. He asks me what our rules are, I go on with the standard response about rules being stupid.

Eventually, he sends me this:

Quote:
Btw do you have a real picture? I like being able to talk face to face or pic to pic as I have a hard time establishing a personality without invisioning there facial responses.
For reference, my pic is me making a funny fish face and photoshopped a bit. But, me nonetheless.

Here's his OKC pic:
Yeah. Exactly. Dude, seriously? You have NO picture whatsoever, and you're accosting me to send you a "real" pic? Pipe the fuck down.

Is this how you address a 57 year old woman, boys? Really? One has to wonder how long it's been since they got laid.

I know I shouldn't waste any energy feeling angry that someone would send me this message:

I am writing because I feel simultaneously interested in and in disagreement with what you are saying. I know you wanna b free, but Im telling you right now, If you want the good sex with a good friend, then you gotta go out on a limb and save yourself for that one individual. The trapped feeling is a low down dirty lie. Polyamory can only make people doubt themselves. Its like eating food with no nutritional value repeatedly. The grass isnt greener, its astroturf. I think you would be amazed at what could happen if you pick one good dude and build a trust. A man treated well could have baboon strength for you. I feel it is something to cherish, not sabotage the possibility of it ever happening with talk of detachment.

But, it makes me angry.

Actually, no, it just makes me grateful for the screening process.

Also, "baboon strength" ?????

I deactivated my profile while waiting for pics to add to it. Reactivated it, added 3 pics. Saw I had three messages when I was done.

The three messages:
"any pictures?"
"hello"
"got pics?"
