Some excerpts from the past few days.
whaaa: lets talking
Well. I know I can talk. You, however... I'm not so sure about.
adjectiveguy: 3 words for me: Creative, Passionate, Dominant
adjectiveguy: And youre how affectionate, quiet warm submissive
me: no, no, and no.
adjectiveguy: Ok take care then
This man clearly did not read my profile. Actually, he told me so much prior to this, and also tried to convince me writing about oneself is a "creative exercise." Except...it's an autobiography... Well, he's creative. I guess he'd know.
This one's fun. We'd been talking for approximately five minutes before this.
overzealous: may be we could go out sometime
me: you're a little young for me.
overzealous: am 20 is that going to be a problem its not for me
me: it's a little young.
overzealous: so its not gonna work ur saying right
me: well it might not work for a number of reasons, but that's not helping.
overzealous: can u tell me what will so i can do it
Why do men do this? Why do they assume every conversation is going to lead to a relationship? They can't just get to know a woman. It's so frustrating.
me: ...no. we don't know each other.
overzealous: we are getting there right
overzealous: why not
me: you're getting a little ahead of yourself.
overzealous: with what
me: even asking if it would work out. if WHAT would work out? we're just talking.
overzealous: getting to know u, ok am sorry i maybe was alittle over my head
Yes, and getting to know me doesn't "work out" or "not work out." It's a neutral entity. I...don't understand.
overzealous: lets jus take this slow and get to know each other
me: how about we just TALK and not assume we need to take anything slowly?
Oy. Then he asked if he could call me later.
me: I don't give out my number after 10 minutes.
overzealous: ok ur jus giving me a hard time thats good cause nothing thats good comes easy
me: if you're going to say crap like that, it's not going to come at all.
He's tried to IM me four times since. Clearly he got the hint.
And this one's just amusing. I enjoy a good ellipsis. Frequently. And he noticed.
grammarpolice: u like using dots
me: except that's not what they're called.
me: ellipsis. the correct term is ellipsis.
grammarpolice: well sorry im not "intellectual" enough for u
me: I...don't recall saying that.
me: that isn't quite the correct usage, but...uh, cool.
