Hello again. Back for more of my PlentyOfFish messages and responses. Well, here they are…
As ever, prospective employers, you are requested to take a look over here.
This week (or whatever time period has passed):
The Guy That Didn’t Get / Ignored My Sarcasm
I do try and reply to everyone, but some people make it hard and I get bored, so then this happens:
Him: Hi there, how are you? X
Me: You’re open a can of worms with that opener. Do you want to try something less adventurous?
Him: Well you do have great boobs
Note, that’s my own fault for my headline: “Smart, funny, great boobs!” You can see my profile here.
The Quick Conversation
Him: Hey how are you x
Let’s just ignore the lack of punctuation. I’ve had this kind of message a few times and following my house rule number one, everyone gets a response, but I’m lazy with lazy people.
Him: OK then…
Me: Cool. Done.
Him: trying to make conversation dm… Leave you to it
Well, that told me. I don’t even know what the ‘dm’ bit is about, but I don’t think we have a future together. Another one bites the dust.
Him: good afternoon x
Me: Having much luck with that killer opener?
Him: was it bad. sorry.. how r u x
I don’t really have anything else to add to this one.
The Apparently Persistent One
This guy claims to have messaged me before. I don’t believe he has, though I’m kind of intrigued by his tactics. He’s banking on the fact that I won’t go back and check my old messages, though actually, if he had messaged me before, the previous message would show up above the new one. Anyway, is he working the guilt angle? What do you think?
Him: Hi I’m XXXX, nice to meet you :-).. Would you fancy chattin with me? I did message ya before so I’m kinda hoping you didn’t get it or sumthin so there might be a chance you get back to this one lol.. Anyhow.. I’m from XXXX, work full time, used to teach snow board, travelled much, few tattoos, they all tell a tale about me..I got a magic Piercin lol.. Love music, lived France and New York now I’m back home.. Your pics are bloody fantastic, hmm, I bet you a £10 you won’t get back 😉
Me: I responded, but you can give the tenner to a charity of your choice.
A magic piercing? Huh? I…um…I’m not going to comment any further on that. It was noted.
So, there are my messages for another week. More next week, when I’ll try ease off on the sarcasm and try and be a little kinder.
