Sent From a 23/F 60% match whos profile I glanced at:

"Nobody likes retrosexuals anymore."

Wha? Huh?

I think at this point I'm just keeping the profile active out of morbid curiosity.

I've got a pile I've been saving up:

What keeps you up on monday? just crossing your fingers that some handsome guy that has had a couple beers will come along and ask you to use a strap-on on him while your husband watches?

Trade nudes sexy?!

I do not relate well to your polyamory ambitions...

That's nice?
Me: 30yo wife
Q: 29yo husband of 5 years
(The Divine) Miss M: 27yo mutual friend, GF of Q just recently

What the hell is a "retrosexual"?

Spinner: 52/M, Friend I've been on a few dates with. Divorced, Mono, wrapping his head around it all.

This is one of my recent ones:

'hey you seem pretty cool and I can fly so yeah'

You seem cool, I can defy gravity, therefore perfect match! Apparently.

And I also got:

'hey there! WOAH i should have bought my burn cream! you are hot stuff!'

I have never heard of a chat up line, such as above, actually working.

What's wrong with these messages?

"FWB Hun?"

"Tonight I have finally worked up the courage to say hello to you!"

"Wow we have alot in common my name is ___ Lets exchange info meet for coffee talk first of course."

And here's something not to do: put almost no information on your profile so that you are only a 30% match even with people you might be compatible with if you had answered more questions. Such a gentleman messaged me; I replied to say it doesn't look like we have much in common; he responded with, "Well I don't put much on my profile so that we will have something to talk about!"

Seriously, dude, does that ever work? The one benefit of online dating is that it saves time & trouble because you can find and/or eliminate people based on their profiles. If your profile says almost nothing...why would that make me want to talk to you?

I guess that works in the mind of a guy who searches for hot pictures and doesn't bother reading the profiles?

I just recently joined OKC, and have already had a number of interesting messages. My personal favourite was "Hi. Like your tatts - can I lick them all over?" Umm - no!?

But besides the dross, even out here in the sticks, there does seem to be a number of people who actually seem to read what I have shown on the profile; that was a nice surprise!
Schizofish, 42yo female, in polyship with:

-Njord, 51M mostly LDR lover
-Wayland, 40M FWB, who is in a LTR with Odette
-Meili, 42M lover

Honestly, I don't know how to reply to these. I need a canned response or something that I can cut and paste when the person gives me so little inspiration.
I don't get much traffic on my OKC, but I do occasionally get those one word 'hello' things. I respond in kind. "Hello"

Lobs the ball right back into their court.

another one:

He's also in Texas. I guess that means, yum yum?

Miam miam is French for yum yum. I'm not sure if maybe the guys if from that part of Texas that is creole-influenced, and using some French terms, maybe? Or maybe he (or his family) is from a French-speaking country originally?
There is also the option that it's not just a French thing, but it's my first time seeing it used in English, I have to say.
