The OKCupid version (yes, I joined a vanilla dating site: more on this later!).
These are random emails I have sent out to men whose profiles I liked (as opposed to replies to emails that landed in my inbox).
To be clear, the first three were not potential matches: I just like to send out compliments to people when I see something interesting. It’s fun to say sweet things to people. It’s also stress free … Continue Reading
Him: Since my face is there [on a profile he just shared with me] I’ll note I am 23 years young, so hold your ‘potential’ horses. *smile*
Me: [after taking a look] Well aren’t you adorable *smile*!
I had picked you for much older when you first commented – you seem to have an easy confidence that generally comes with maturity (not age, necessarily).
I halted the horses. Anyway, how do you know they were … Continue Reading
Thank you for the compliments, I do appreciate it. And it’s such a shame, I really liked your approach. You seem smart, funny, and possibly awesome.
But here’s the thing: You have lied to me once already. So now I can’t believe anything you say.

22M, no location listed: But you accept skype video chat?
Me: No, not interested. – Ferns
Him: Ok can we chat on IM?
Me: If it has the word ‘chat’ in it: No.
For all I know you are boring as fuck (goodness knows your approach is indeed as boring as fuck) and … Continue Reading
“I serve you online through webcam, taking pictures and videos of tasks you assign me.”
Yeah, that’s not service. That’s you getting your rocks off. Calling it ‘service’ is disingenuous.
And no, that doesn’t interest me one bit.
Best of luck.

Sometimes, someone is so idiotic, I lose my calm, helpful demeanour…
I have to set the context for this one by showing the entire exchange.
I received this email from 45yo maledom nowhere near me:
What can I say.. You look great and got me captivated with your great pic too.. There once was a time that I didn’t believe in angels, but that has changed since i came across your profile…If I must say … Continue Reading
