This guy's IMed me several times during the past year, though it stalls out every time after the initial pleasantries.
Him: what r u up to?
Me: not much. reading a book.
Him: what s the name?
Me: anna karenina
Him: u speak arabic
I checked his profile. According to it, he speaks English and French. Perhaps he's thinking of that other Leo Tolstoy--the one who was based in Iran...you know. He wrote that really awesome book, War and Not a Lot of Peace.
Then again, his follow up to asking if I speak Arabic was to ask if I was single which I think is a little weird considering it's a dating website and my profile says I'm single.
Him: your smile melted me
And on that note, I'm going to take this little pile of red flags and run away screaming into the night.
