(mis) adventures in dating, pt 2 [Aug. 22nd, 2009|09:38 am]
[Current Mood |amusedamused]

i have an account on a free site that, when it originally started, was just a bunch of the silly quizzes that are now the bread and butter over at facebook (and it had an interesting im program, which i think is what i was initially there to look at, as it related to ding, if that give you an idea how long ago this was). at some point they tried to be a social networking site and finally evolved into a dating site. because it's a free site, i have, throughout the years, come across pretty much everyone else i know in austin who is single (and some who weren't) which was always funny and awkward and led to some pretty amusing looks when next we saw each other in public. it's not what i would call a high traffic place, and i get maybe one email or poke from it every couple weeks, most completely ignorable... i am not convinced that the web-dating sites are any more effective or useful than walking into a 7-11 at just the right moment, and the following email i received last night is a good example why. am cutting and pasting, so the creative spelling is all his.

Dear Squeek,

I saw your profile last night and I thoght I should say HELLO! How r u????? I C U R in korea!! i Bet the yopga there iz really good! I am a vegan and have 9 cats and love to give messages! Do U?

Anywayz, thanks forwreading and we should get 2gether and mybe burn somthing!


[named deleted in case you might somehow know him, because ... wow.]

if you are reading this you know several things about me that am pretty sure are also apparent in any on-line social profile i post, so i won't even go into the whys of how this is so wrong in pretty much every way.

but there is one thing i do want to know - when is bruni man, and do i have to wear a burka if i go?

I think you're right: luck is what you need. Location is not as crucial.

That said, I'm on that same silly now-dating site and I met my current partner there 3 years ago. Timing was the most important factor to our ever meeting.

Oh, and the fact that we're both literate. Good lord.

Edit: on the other hand, trying to type on a phone keyboard substantially reduces writing ability.

I hope that he is ESL rather than a complete ignoramus...but I am probably hoping for naught.

Whenever I get messages like that, I'm tempted to reply "What are you, 12?"

Re: LOL!

i am also tempted to write back and ask if he has any messages for me. :)
