Mark330xi says “ur beautiful”. (First off, I didn’t realize I could get instant messages on Plenty of Fish.) At least he got one of three words spelled right. Punctuation leaves something to be desired.
Mark/Menosh (don’t know which is his real name) sent me a message the other day saying he like my well-written profile. He loves my pretty smile and would love to get to know me. Yup. Mm hmm. Today he sent me an IM asking if I liked what I read on his profile. Sure, why not? Seems like a half-decent guy and I told him so, but I don’t see what we have in common and he promptly closed his IM window.
Mark/Menosh is 5’8″ (taller than me, but still too short for my heels), divorced (been there, done that, not gonna do it again), drinks socially (you know I don’t really believe anyone who says that), likes weekend getaways (I’m not leaving with any man on an overnight trip until my honeymoon), and on a first date would go for drinks on an outdoor patio (as opposed to an indoor patio).
“Beauty is only skin deep – persoanlity and substance is the key.” I don’t even know what to say to that. This guy messaged me because he thinks I’m cute (must look like a dog on the inside if beauty is only skin deep), thinks personality (at least I’m assume that’s what he means) and substance are key, yet didn’t really read my profile (well, maybe he did and chose to ignore several important points).
And here comes my rant:
Guys – girls who don’t drink aren’t going to go for drinks on a first date.
Just because you think I’m cute doesn’t mean I’m going to think you’re cute especially when my eyes are more drawn to the mess in your bathroom rather than your face (which, by the way, is too blurry for me to discern any details in your features).
If you don’t want me to waste your time, don’t waste mine. Most people who feel the need to express their religious status (whether it be Christian, Jewish, Sikh, Muslim or any other), aren’t looking for people who aren’t religious at all. If you’re not a Christian, I can tell you right now, anything else we may have in common is pretty much void – that is unless you’re willing to convert (and by convert, I don’t mean get sprinkled in the church so you can say you’re a Christian, I mean, full out, Holy Ghost-filled, fire-baptized, gonna change the world convert).
I am never ceased to be amazed at the people in the world who do no recognise the great importance of faith in others. Just because you don’t care that I have faith doesn’t mean that I don’t care that you don’t. And let’s be honest, if you like to spend your weekends at the pub, I’m gonna be a downer for you since I spent my weekends at church.
