All right, ladies, and gentlemen of that sexual persuasion, I have found him, and you will all first be dying with jealousy, and secondly, any of you with a little bit of balls will try to steal him away.
I'm telling you all right now, it ain't gonna happen. He found me, and I feel like Cinderella.
I have signed up (and quit) several on-line dating sites, simply because the men they sent me either bragged about their gun collection, or their prowess as a lover.
Most of them were barrel shaped and drove a truck.
Now I'm not being a bitch, but when they put in that they would rather watch UFC on Spike TV rather than read a book - one was actually truthful and said that the last time he had read a "book-book" was in high school.(He was 45) I'm sorry, but I have a problem with that.
It is absolutely opposite of both my personality AND my interests that I listed. These were what the computer found as compatible traits?
I guess I just don't have 29 points of compatibility with anyone.
The men that did send me communications sent messages like " U R Hawt. Wanna grab a beer?"
Now it may sound snooty or even snotty, but if you can't be bothered to type out the whole word, I don't have time to read your vanity license plate spelling.
(these were also usually the average to even above average looking guys, with an amazing gun collection, which I would be willing to bet is in the bedroom where he does his "magic lover" tricks. Written by someone I was "matched with." Yeep!
I think internet dating can work.
I think that you can meet someone on line and have a relationship. I have several friends that I consider my friends in the same way as I do the people that live ten minutes from me.
I even dated someone I met on a social network. It didn't work out, but there were parts of it that were as good or better than some of the relationships I have had with men I have met where I live.
So now that I have rambled on more than I probably needed to (you can always leave if you want, you know that, right?)
OK. Just when I was ready to give up on online love, and I had canceled all my dating-match sites.....
I received a friend request on facebook from a man who opened his request by telling me that he thought I was beautiful, and based on my status updates and applications, I seem like a very bright woman.
Anything that starts out like that is creepy for sure. *shudders*
This is because first of all, I don't think I have any pictures of me up anymore because I took them all down to avoid creeps, which means he's been scoping for a while, and it also means I didn't have my privacy settings up properly.
However, if I have found my dream man because of that oversight, I can live with it.
His friend request went on to tell me that he plays WOW, and several other games I
have never heard of. (the WOW was enough, he could have and should have stopped there.)
I pretty much stopped reading, because he was kinda scaring me with how long and detailed his message was. I did pick up a few more details, like his Mom is his best friend, he reads Science Fiction and loves Anime, especially the violent stuff. God, that means he could like Anime porn.
I know that you may all be thinking what a shallow bitch I am, but come on, I didn't have one thing in common with this guy, and here he was, trying to pick me up, for free, on facebook.
I guess I am a little shallow, because I changed my mind in a big hurry when I saw this posted at the bottom of his message:
Tell me that that picture is not enough to make those of you in super committed, happy marriages etc. a little drooly that he picked me. Meow!!
I haven't responded to his friend request, because I'm not even sure where to start.
But I'm going to be completely honest with you...When I said it was like Cinderella....I was lying.
I also made sure I have every block and privacy setting at ten or whatever the most private is.
