first message form guy:
hi, let's meet!

his profile says we're a 50% match. to the question 'I spend a lot of time thinking about..' his only answer is: Sex.
to the question 'would you ever consider an open relationship' his answer is 'no'. So, I don't respond.

comes a second message: 'so, you're looking at my profile but not saying anything?'

should've stopped right there. but I'm feeling confrontational and reply:

to the question 'would you ever consider an open relationship' your answer is 'no'. if you had read my profile, you would know that this means we're not exactly a good match'.

his reply: 'hi babe! I did not mean that of course. I suck at filling out forms. I would love an open relationship, even if it was just for kissing other women! I love kissing!'

seriously. how do these guys ever expect to find someone on a dating site?

Tonberry, I would totally have replied to that, with a DETAILED list of all the ways his profile was BS and the evidence that he had never read my profile at all.

But then I'm a bitch like that, and currently feel no pressure to be polite to someone who has disrespected me/treated me like an object by messaging me without ever reading anything about me.

His name refers to the gym. All his pix are of his muscular torso. In the gym. He's 0% match with me and he wants ladies who are into leather, latex, rubber and stilettos, or failing that, look sexy in other things. You should message him if "you are wild and sexy."

Anyone who's that wild and sexy is out wearing "other things" and getting laid, not sitting around waiting for MrGym on the internet.

Cleaning out my inbox on OKC and thought I'd share some gems I ignored and forgot about:

OMG you have are amazing eyes color ;-)

*********************

I need some love en ASAP tonight. Gr
T

*********************

96% match so they say;-)

*********************

Hi, I'm ____. I've been reading your profile, and it looks like you have quite a few shared interests and values. Any thoughts on this? If you would like to chat a bit, I would love to hear from you.

*********************

Hello,

Iím _____ aka Tony. Iíve been on and off OKC for a few years, and use it as a primary social media site.

. . . What I seek is simple. Iíve co-authored a screenplay and invite you to read and critique it. . . .


*********************



So that's the latest from my OKC Inbox.

My most recent one: "Lovely pics I see you are poly but do have a play partner currently.....? I'd love to get to know you, and wonder about the possibilities in the future.... Let me know your thoughts )"

When I didn't respond right away, he sent me another one of those odd smiley faces.

Default This just in! :P

Him- what a coincidence I was looking for an enemy they are the best sex

Things I found wrong in this.
1. No punctuation
2. No capitalization
3. And well, isn't it obvious? Put it back in your pants, Buddy.

Did I respond? Not just no, but HELL no.

Default "Wish I was there"

I'm not entirely sure why I did it, but I started a new OKC profile recently.

On any given day, I can count on some variation of the following in my inbox:

[SFX: crickets chirring]

Okay, that's not entirely true. I have started a couple of conversations that went on for a bit, but then faded out. Still, no one had actually initiated contact with me.

But then, the other day, an actual message! Oh, be still my heart!

It was from someone in the great Midwest - by the algorithm a 73% match, though 33% "enemy" - who wrote simply:

"I wish I lived in [your city]"

I live in Georgia.

Well, yeah. My city is a nice city, sure enough. Lots of people might want to live here.

I wrote back:

"That's funny. I wish I lived in Amherst, MA."

Which is a little bit true.
