week one on okcupid
Here are some of the emails I have received on OKCupid. All of them are so generic and cut’n’paste and none of them referenced anything in my profile. [my comments in green]:
“you are so pretty and feminine.
so lucky to be a girl. i wish i had your choices. *blush*” [Umm, thanks?]
“Life is too short to wait for something to happen. Now is the time to make it happen. If you would like a friend to have a drink with and share some time, I would be honored to be in your company. Just say the word and I’m there.” [Ooo yay! Another drinking buddy… just what my liver needs]
“Wow.You are the type of woman I am looking to spend some quality time with. I may not be the best looking guy on here,or the sharpest dresser, or have the one line that will make you melt. But what I do have is sincerity, charm and decent looks. I can laugh at myself and will make you laugh as well. I will cuddle and hold you in my arms and let you know each day how important it is that you are a part of my life. I also have a little Bad Boy in me as well. If this sounds like someone you will want to get to know, get back to me. You will not be disappointed.let’s give it a try” [I barely wrote anything in my profile…what about it made you think I’m your ‘type’ of woman? Just my pics? Thanks, I guess]
how are you im new to the site
and i was wondering if you wanted to chat sometime” [Uh, no]
“often i’m in NYC and next year i should move there, i hope you give me a chance to know you …
hi how are you” [You live in Italy now…contact me next year if, god forbid, I’m still on this god-forsaken site]
“Hi beautiful,how are you today 🙂 , what are upto next week or weekend,I would love to ask u out if you are available,a litlle bit about me 🙂 im 5ft n 11inches tall, i love workingout,going for fun trips and i am a very optimistic guy settled in my career.
I am from *******,NJ and work in financial markets as a stock trader, I wanted to know you more and we could go out.so where do u like to go for fun and on weekends.
Let’s keep it simple if ur interested lets go out on a date rather then wasting months and days just to email back n forth life is short so lets keep it simple you could send me ur tel no and we could speak or text each other.” [This guy had no pic. No picture, no communication, thank you]
“I want me an older women :)” [This from a 23 year old. Oh good lord]
One week on and I’m communicating with two guys. One who seems “normal” compared to many of the others. And the other is…the beach-posing-Beefcake! I’ll update you on that in tomorrow’s post.
