I often have a lot of men complaining to me that women never take the initiative and send the first message in online dating. I’m not here to say that we should or shouldn’t, but if I find someone I think I might like – I am not shy to send a message. You really have nothing to lose but a few minutes, if that.
I found a profile of someone in the area, in my age range, who is attractive, seems fun and that he has his ducks in a row.. and he mentions his adoration for Phil Collins more than once. (Which could very easily be sarcasm.. but if you list it once, it’s fair game in a message.)
I sent him a note. I won’t post it because it would make his profile easily find-able. I asked him about something Phil Collins that he referenced on his profile, and gave it a few days. Clearly he would see that I’m his future bride.
Nothing. So, I did what any sensible girl would do.. I sent one last attempt:
“How could I just let you walk away? .. Just let you leave without a trace?”
It clearly wasn’t meant to be if he didn’t find that hilarious. Oh well.
