online dating : a glimpse

cast:

plucky female : yours truly

[redacted] male : call sign “simplyadebacle”  (no foreshadowing there)

no m's were harmed in this exchange
no names have been changed b/c this dude is so guilty.


simplyadebacle:

Your pics are hard to see

moi:

M'kay , Eyes help with that :)

simplyadebacle:

Also taking clear photos from a reasonable distance and not chopped off

Since my eyes were used to read your profile

moi:

Everyone is a critic.

simplyadebacle:

If everyone Is then maybe its not us. You look sorta cute but who can tell

6 of your pictures obstruct your face in some way

moi:

Yes, they do. They illustrate me the personality instead of me the physical human

It's nerdy, but that is an accurate description.

simplyadebacle:

We don't want a description. We want a physical attraction. I have set up dates and wasted time with people who did this. So maybe consider if you are looking to seriously date someone, from the other perspective. Your personality can be reflected in your words

moi:

Thank you for the thoughtful critique. I suspect we might not be a match as you didn't get my profile, and find it light spirited. Which means you might not be the guy for me, which is totally cool. We'll find our matches. Good luck to you, poodle.

simplyadebacle:

Don't be condescending. I didn't need the poodle comment

moi:

Not sure where condescending came from, it's a term of endearment among my family and friends. It's all good.
I bid you good day.

simplyadebacle:

No wonder people are single

moi:

Well, my friend, you're on this dating carousel, too, so.... Yeah
God bless and I said good day.

simplyadebacle:

Exactly my point. People. Me. Because girls are wacky

moi:

And on that note.... Le Block por vous, mon petite chous

[dating website]:

simplyadebacle was successfully blocked!


i wanted to engage this guy so very badly.  i wanted to pull from the depths of my snark and crank and shame him for his hubris and presumption.  judge me on my photos, do you? i'm gonna yoda the shit out of this one.

then..

why? why engage? what will that do? what will that prove?  save providing fodder for this blog.  i won't really 'teach' him anything.  i don't need to prove that i'm smarter or wittier or better than him.  it just makes me... well... him.  

so, i said good day.... and shared this with the ether.
