I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. If a guy can’t or won’t have a conversation online (like answering specific questions) when he has all the time in the world to think of something intelligent, witty, or at least coherent to say; chances are he isn’t going to be able to hold your interest in a live meeting
No, I’m not stupid. I can spot these guys from their second or third email, if not their first message. The question is why do I sometimes choose to ignore a message and move and other times try and pry info out of a guy? Maybe I’m shallow and it’s about looks, maybe their profile doesn’t immediately paint them as a sociopath or shows some potential in terms of humor, maybe sometimes I’m just bored or in a bitchy mood
c’mon now, you can do better than that
(I’m paraphrasing, the email containing our emails back and forth didn’t go back all the way to the start by the time I decided to copy it.)
well most women like to be complimented lol brian

hi brian. my name is megan. i was thinking more along the lines of you mentioning something we have in common that we can talk about, especially since your profile doesn’t say a lot about you. see, that wasn’t so hard 🙂
4/21/2013 2:15:24 PM
OK but I hate texting that much lol
4/21/2013 2:22:06 PM
because you’re lazy? and still not mentioning anything we have in common after i specifically asked you to isn’t really a good sign. did you even look at my profile? please don’t contact me back unless you can put in a little effort. if not, i’m sure there are plenty of low class chicks on here that will be happy to talk to you. sorry, i’m just not in to wasting my time, maybe you’d understand if you saw the boring, bullshit, creepy messages that women routinely get on this site. and i wouldn’t be wasting this much time on you if i didn’t think you have potential

4/21/2013 5:43:18 PM

OK, so I looked at the profile early in the morning and may have missed some warning signs. Like listing patios as an interest. Really? are you interested in the materials they are made out of? how they are constructed? or are you just too boring and lazy to think of something better?
I obviously missed the spelling mistakes, which i probably could have overlooked if things were different.
And finally, he has so little to say that he wrote the same thing for the ‘about me’ and ‘first date’ sections
Oh yeah, he obviously still has a lot to learn-about online dating and women in general
Ah, a man of few words
Now would probably be a good time to post my profile

I don’t believe in perfection, just wanting to find a stable, mature man with similar interests and see if we connect. No kids or crazy exes, hoping to find a guy in a similar position. Going out to a bar for a drink is fine, but over that as a way to meet someone.
I enjoy a wide variety of books and tv. Parks and rec, mad men, walking dead, and the daily show. Trying to finish the latest game of thrones book, wolf hall, and the book about the creation of ESPN. musically I tend towards classic rock. If you like Glen Hansard I’ll be your friend for life
I am huge sports fan, including those popular worldwide but usually dismissed by jim rome types. so if you’re up for a crew match in columbus or going to the atp in mason, we’d definitely get along.
Just a few guidelines that I shouldn’t have to spell out, but obviously need to be said based on my previous conversation with guys on this site:
do not give me your phone number before telling me your name
if you send me a message, try to be more creative than just saying hi, but asking me a question about my ass is not the way to go
if you’re actually looking for a mature relationship and i ask you a question, actually answer it. and i’m not going to ask you personal or invasive questions. we’re talking pop culture and sports and musical/television tastes
oh yeah, a woman’s rule of thumb is the hotter the fake pic you choose, the more disgusting we assume you are in real life. and most of you guys make it so obvious that you’re using a fake pic we usually don’t even need to google it. and why so many pics that link to gay porn sites?
So I think that gives a guy any number of openings to start a conversation; multiple tv shows, books, sports. And it also SPECIFICALLY tells a man I expect him to but in a little effort. And any guy who is honest can make fun of the fact that other idiots are using pictures from porn sites.
Drats, she’s going to demand an answer and I can’t ‘charm’ my way out of it, not even by giving her my phone number, which I’ll do because I’m a moron and why not give a potentially crazy woman my number?
