Advice Probably Not Taken

9 Apr

“Hi! How are you?!… Sending this note hoping that after all those e-mails that you have been receiving you would have the chance to check mine 🙂 …
I like what I read in your profile, and you definitely have some nice pics here… So If you like what you read and see in my profile, please don’t hesitate and say hi anytime ok 😉 … Have a great weekend!
I am attaching some pics… hope you like them! “

This message was sent to me on OKCupid.   If you frequent OKC, you are aware that you cannot send pictures in a message.   This is a basic form letter that I had received plenty of times at PlentyOfFish.    I am usually not one to fight back, but doggone it-  POF and OKC need to be two different places for my sanity.

“How are you attaching photos?”

“I am good 🙂 … How your weekend is going?…”

“Want to re-read that maybe?”

“What is your problem smarty pants?”

“My problem is that firstly, you sent me a form letter. You didn’t attach photos, as you have no way to do that on this website.

My second problem was that I asked how you were attaching photos, and you neglected to read “attaching photos?” and instead just read “How are you” and responded to that.

Perhaps you should go back to POF.”

“Nope I am having more luck in ok cupid… Maybe not with you… Be happy is happy Easter! … ;)”

At very least, I am glad that he has proved my point that OKCupid is WAY better than PlentyOfFish.

“I am very happy – but since I am a firm believer that OKC is the better place to be, I feel it necessary to tell you to at least update your form letter.. and become classier yourself, and you will have even BETTER luck.”

“Thanks for the advice”


..I highly doubt he will take it though.

    If you have a paid account, you can attach pics. I pay so I can browse (stalk) anonymously, and I can also attach pics.

    That being said, the guy is clearly a cut-and-paste scammer, and not a very good one at that.

    wow. way to ensure some tail, there, einstein…

    this is possibly the biggest problem that i have with email and text communications. and comment sections on the internet, lol. it allows people to be needlessly rude, with no repercussions. it is very easy to behave badly when you are alone with your keyboard, phone, ipad whatever. much harder to be an asshole face to face with the person, or even on the phone.

    he will jsut think the problem lies with you and forge on ahead, cluelessness intact.
