I have been inspired to write about internet dating once again. I have just received two messages (from separate men) and once again, they have left me speechless!
I switched on my laptop this morning and logged into my account and when I noticed I have two new messages I got a slight burst of excitement. I say slight burst it was more likely a little twinkle which lasted a millisecond. The reason for this as I have been on this site now for quite a while and there really is only one or two gems on there, the rest are unfortunately, like bug lumps of coal or small uninteresting pebbles. But you never know…..I am a believer in fate and I think if it’s meant to be then you will come across your soul mate one day, whether that is whilst you are crossing over the street, in a supermarket, online or the more traditional ‘meeting in a bar’.
I clicked on the first message from the user ‘BigBalls1984’ I think the username should have given it away but I must admit I did not check the user name before I clicked on the message. The message read, and I quote:
“Hey there, I love your profile pictures you are hot! Have you ever considered becoming an escort? You can make loads of money and its really not a bad job, you get paid to take men out. What do you reckon?”
My intention clearly states on my profile ‘seeking a relationship’ but just to clarify, it is not a relationship of this type!
Next one looks more promising. I click on his profile photo, he looks lovely, dark hair, bright blue eyes and a nice, almost shy looking smile. There are three other pictures on his profile and they are all equally as nice. I read his profile and he seems nice, regular job, 5ft 11 inches (decent height though I prefer over 6 ft but I wont hold this against him). I click on his message and it read:
“Hi, you seem like a really nice, down to earth girl. Would you like to chat?”
I replied with a ‘yes’, why not, what have I got to lose, he actually seems nice and normal (this is important) so I replied:
“Hi, thank you for your message, you seem like a nice guy, what is a beautiful boy like you doing on a site like this?”
Well how I wish I had never asked…..
“Well, have you read the book 50 Shades of Grey? I am looking for a girl that is willing to train to become a submissive. Do you think this is something you would be interested in?”
“Erm, thank you for the offer but no thanks! Good look with your search”
This guy clearly has no idea who he is dealing with. I consider myself to be a free spirit, quite hedonistic if I am honest. To become a submissive for me would be like tearing off a birds wings and to finish it off, sticking it in a 4″x4″ box with no breathing space.
Well I guess my search for the one continues. I remain hopeful though. If nothing else the online dating is just an input of comedy in my life. I do not take it too seriously and I am lucky I have a good social life so I do not rely on it being the only way to meet people. Which is probably best, as unfortunately it would appear mostly the people on there are either desperate, obsessive,a time waster, a fake account, perverted or offering <ahem> a job in some way.
I would actually love to hear from anyone who has had success with online dating, as I am either doing something wrong or I am on the wrong site!
