What Time Is It?

20 Feb

I don’t know about the rest of you – but lately the men of the online meat market have decided that anytime between midnight and 3am is an acceptable time to be sending me a message.

These messages are nothing exciting, just basic form letters for the most part.  So, why am I telling you this?    I am telling you this because if you are one of my male readers, I would like to think you come here as a “What not to do” guide to online dating.

DO NOT SEND A FIRST MESSAGE TO SOMEONE BETWEEN THE HOURS OF MIDNIGHT AND FIVE AM!!

Are there exceptions?  Yes.  Pretty much the only one being if you work a night shift, and you put that in your message.   But otherwise, don’t do it.

Personally, I have the OKCupid app on my phone, and my phone makes a noise when you send me your fan mail.   This wakes me up, and unless you and I have been messaging back and forth, or your message is brilliant, it pisses me off.   If you are a respectable human being,  you shouldn’t be sending a message that late/early.   Save her to your favorites, and message her in the morning.   This will make it seem like you aren’t just looking for a piece of ass.

And, per the usual,  ditch the form letter.

    I think there’s more than one exception lol. I have crazy insomnia issues so there are many nights where I stay up super late and end up messaging guys at crazy hours. Maybe turn the notification sound off for the okcupid app??

      And I meant specifically the guys who send stupid form letters who are actually looking for something.

    Um, at the risk of irritating you, I’d like to make a suggestion.

    Turn your phone to silent.

      It actually just does a small little vibrate noise.. and, again: if it’s someone that I have been talking with, or something brilliant, it doesn’t bother me. It’s the 30% match “Your hot how r u” messages that I get (when I wake up…) that annoy me.
