Hey fellas, online dating can be tough for us. Never mind getting a girlfriend, or having a date, it’s a long shot just to get a girl to respond. So why not have some fun with it and enjoy the process itself of online dating? If girls don’t respond then the upside to that is you can say anything without impunity.
I’ve been having some fun with this and I’d like to share some of the messages I’ve sent.
Girl’s profile says her profession is woodworking.
My message: “your profession is woodworking? Hmm, I'm sure there's no sexual innuendo there :P ”
I was originally going to say “your profession is woodworking? You can work my wood anytime” but instead wanted to hint at it without actually saying it.
My message: “Hiloha”
It’s a combination of hello, hi, and aloha. Just mixing it up a bit.
Girl’s profile says she is a sushi and cat lover.
My message: “you like sushi and cats, eh? I hope you don't eat the cats too :P ”
Yeah, it’s racist, but you laughed didn’t you?
Girl’s headline says she’s looking to meet new people.
My message: “Hey, I'm new and I'm a person - I'm the perfect guy for you :P ”
Girl’s profile says she would rather have a conversation.
My message: “I'd rather have a conversation too :P ”
By saying that I meant to imply that it takes two to have a conversation – girls, don’t expect us to do all the talking. Needless to say she didn’t respond; either she missed what I was implying or she didn’t believe my message. It doesn’t really matter what guys say when it’s misinterpreted or misbelieved.
Her headline says “Liker of things, do-er of stuff.”
My message: “nice headline; I feel like I know you already.”
I really did like her headline though; I found it amusing.
Profile says “the body is my temple and you should always treat it with respect.”
My message: “can I come worship at your temple?”
Profile asks “What does the last girl you slept with look like?”
My message: “She could look like you ;)”
Profile description says “I'm too lazy to enter a proper description.”
My message: “Hi there. I’m too lazy to send a proper first message.”
Hey, a lacklustre profile gets a lacklustre response – it seems appropriate to me. You get what you put out there girls.
Profile says “just ask” (guys, don’t you just hate these?)
My message: “What do you want me to ask about?”
Which in itself is a question.
Headline asks "what’s up," also in her main profile pic she’s wearing a bikini.
My message: “with a profile pic like that you can guess what’s up”
Description says “You'll make my day with a pick up line.”
My message: “Even Da Vinci couldn't paint you
and Stephen Hawking can't explain you
Rosetta Stone could not translate you
I'm at a loss for words”
…yes, these are lyrics from a Weezer song. If she doesn’t like it then I blame Rivers Cuomo :P
Headline says “I’m new??”
My message: “You don’t sound certain that you’re new.”
This one actually garnered a response: “Lol I just typed something random.”
...but no conversation.
FYI, none of the other messages got responses, not even a simple "fuck off." So it's like I said at the beginning of this take: no impunity. Have some fun with it guys.
