MY BEST(?) INTERACTIONS WITH DUDES ON OKCUPID
I've online dated on and off for years (currently: off). Sometimes I would try hard, go on lots of dates, really put in effort. Other times... well, see below.
- •How To Talk Dirty
- •BatmanIt's disappointing how bad most guys are at initiating conversations. I usually ignored one word messages but this dude was REALLY cute you guys. One or two more short, boring responses and I was over him.
- •Fancy Seeing You HereThis is a true story. I recognized him, he did not remember me.
- •Don't Neg MeThis guy made it all the way to a phone number exchange, then messed it up with a classic neg. When I called him out on it, he got supremely defensive.
- •Seriously, Don't Neg MeSame guy as above. I called him sexist and he accused me of having a personality disorder. I closed the convo with this.
- •What exactly was I supposed to do with this?
- •Seriously, what did you expect from me?Same guys as above. Really not sure why he didn't get back to me after this.
- •"How have you been?" A guy I used to work with texted me, followed by this screenshotThis just happened last night. I was really sure that profile was deleted. Word to the wise, this comes across as weird and intrusive, not clever or cutesy.
- •A Research Application
- •A Research Application is Denied
- •Poet Laureate
- •When in Doubt: Rhyming CoupletsMy response to the poet who didn't know it.
