This gem appeared in an online dating inbox of mine:
First of all thanks for reading my message. After reading your profile I can say that I am interested in knowing you more. You can have a look at my profile. Me and my friend would be interested in meeting. I can email his pic thru email.
I don’t use this website often so if you don’t see me online just text me on my number 07*******43.
Hope to hear from you soon. Xx
‘Me and my friend’?? Either that’s a euphemism or I’ve just received an invitation to a threesome. And there you have, in a nutshell, why I have deleted my Plenty Of Fish account. Plenty Of Freaks more like…
Most people will know by now that I’m giving the whole online dating thing a bit of a go. It’s been an interesting ride so far, but what I didn’t realise at the beginning is how weird/awful/sleazy/rude a lot of people can be. Guess I was somewhat naive…
So… to give you lovely readers a taste of what’s been going on, I’ve been avidly screen-shotting for the past few weeks. I’ve also been (whisper it now) a bit of a bitch to some. Or as I like to look at it, relentlessly honest.
It’s a compliment, I guess…
Clearly the truth is hard to accept sometimes
Definitely not worth my time
Nothing like being clear with what you want…
What can say I’m a real stickler for good grammar
I think this guy is in Witness Protection…
There is a line between showing some skin and indecent exposure. This guy crossed it.
I don’t think this guy understands the meaning of sarcasm
I mean, we haven’t even swapped numbers yet!
I don’t think he’s mastered the art of self-promotion
Everyone loves a selfie…
This one needs help
Yes it was. Which is why I didn’t reply to your message. Fool.
Nothing like highlighting someone’s errors
Well I guess this goes against the norm
And finally… This guy is going to die alone
