Who’s Close-minded?

7 Jan

I got a message on OKCupid today that was not a form letter.   This has been known to happen from time to time, because believe it or not – I am a catch.

I responded to this guy’s message right away, without visiting his profile, because I know I have said before:  That’s how it should be!!   I’d much rather have a conversation to get to know you, vs. read about you.

After a few messages back and forth,  I clicked on his profile.   In the “You Should Message Me If..” section,  he writes a little something, followed by: “PLEASE DO NOT MESSAGE ME if you don’t believe in [this] and vote [this political party.]”  Now, we were already talking, but according to his profile, I shouldn’t be talking to him because I don’t believe in [fill in the blank], and more often than not vote for [this political party].   (I am NOT about to get political on this blog!)

In my next message, I decided to address this and said,  “I want to let you know you perhaps shouldn’t expect too much to come of this, because I am a ___-winger who doesn’t believe in [this], which you indicated on your profile is a deal-breaker.”  

I got back a “Wow..  Well, try to keep an open mind.”

I didn’t pick a fight, but really?   Don’t try to make me the close-minded one when I was just addressing something you don’t seem to have a tolerance for.   Just because I have a different opinion than you on anything under the sun doesn’t make me a close-minded person.  It means I have a different opinion than you.   Suck it up.

I’m thinkin’ this guy is probably not the future Mr. Soon2BeCatLady…  but maybe that’s just me being close-minded.   =)

    Yes, broaden your mind, Cat Lady! What were you thinking!
    I had a guy write to me yesterday and say he liked my profile but didn’t think we had a future! It would have been tragic, except I’d never had contact with him. Is it just me or is the internet 78.5% loonies?

      94.6% loonies.
