I don’t like cats –  Okay.. that’s a lie.   I just don’t want any cats.   If I ever get anything furry,  it would probably be a dog.   But – I have on one of my online dating profiles that I dislike cats.

Today, I got pretty much the most original and classy message ever:


Haven’t we all established by now that all caps is the equivalent of yelling?  Who does that?    And yeah.. I get it..  I may not like cats, but I have a pussy.  Har har.

At least his username, which includes the word “immature”, isn’t deceiving.   Seriously, though..  would any of you be impressed with his message?

    this lovely tale reminds me of a situation that happened when i was a kid. 10 yrs old i think. i lived with my dad and stepmom and 3 step-siblings. and it was almost as horrible as cinderella. but i digress. the adults would go out and there was this couple that would babysit us. I remember the guy hacking out a lung one day, and when he gets it under control, he turns to me and says “hairball! and not from licking my arm, if you know what i mean…” and winked at me. in 1976, 10yrs old was much more innocent and i remember thinking he was gross because he licked cats. a few years later it made sense, and grossed me the hell out. and now of course the comment just makes me laugh, kind of helplessly.
    ahh, growing up with perverts. thank god i never knew.

    Haha!! Yikes!! That is hilarious…in the context of your post. But, who sends a message like that!? This voyage into dating is really just solidifying my previous “guys are idiots” opinion. I really wanted to be wrong about that, but holy hell!?!?

    8 times out of 10 when a man here’s the word cat, whether he says it out loud or keeps it in his head, thinks about the female nether region. But emailing it like that is just plain cheesy.

    I disagree. This is quite possibly THE classiest OKC line ever. I could see Sean Connery saying this to Moneypenny. Maybe he’d say “you’ve got” instead of “YOU GOT” and he probably wouldn’t yell it. Sean Connery in an alternate universe where he has that rare disorder where you can only speak in a yelling voice and aren’t too good with contractions.
