10-Minute Meltdown

30 May

#31 has a friend who got to witness a 10-minute meltdown via OKCupid, and gave me permission to share.    I don’t know anything other than the messages that were received –  my assumption would be she wasn’t checking her messages every 30 seconds.

That being said, friends..  If you don’t have an ounce of patience in you, online dating is not for you.


“Hey 🙂

I think it’s cool you’re in publishing.  Do you ever think about using people for editing?  You could send me your book and I could look it over, we could get a bottle of wine and talk about how genius it is.  Or beer, since you seem to know your beers.  I know that’s a little forward, but you seem like the kind of girl who doesn’t take any bullshit.”


8:03PM – yes.. same day.

“Well you’re online but I guess you aren’t interested.  That’s fine.  But you know, you say you like young adult books and I’m just wondering, don’t you think that’s kind of immature?  You have this aura like you have your shit together but you read books meant for kids.  What if you tried reading books by adults?  If you obsess about being like a teenager all the time, you’ll never grow up.”


8:07PM – yes, just 4 short minutes later..

“You’re not even hot, and I was being nice to you.  Females like you have such high standards when you obviously don’t apply them to yourself.  You think you deserve men with a 6-pack and strong jaw, but you’re obviously happy being a tub of lard.  Fine.  Whatever.”


I particularly enjoy that he immediately decides she’s a girl who doesn’t put up with bullshit, and then proceeds to message her bullshit.

Guys, don’t be this guy..  He’s clearly desperate and pathetic.  Take a deep breath.

    Totally reblogging this. It’s hilarious and just another example of what us women have to put up with!

    Wow. Psycho! It’s nice that he was so efficient about showing you his true colors. You didn’t have to waste time actually interacting with him.

    OMG THIS IS CRAZY!!!!!!!!!

    What do you wanna bet some of the dudes who send out form letters, and talk about how sending out personalized ones never worked… pulled shit like this? I mean, not all, but I bet some.

    Men reading this. Just because a woman is online, doesn’t mean she has time to reply. When my now boyfriend and I were first messaging each other, I would check for new messages from him before work each morning, having written to him before bed the night before. He’s an early bird, so he often had a reply waiting for me. I didn’t have time to write back before work; just enough time to read it.

    Don’t ever do what this guy did.

    This guy has issues. I send one message. If I don’t get a response I put her out of my mind. There’s no point wasting time on people who either a) can’t be bothered or b) just don’t have time right now. If a) she’s not worth the time and if b) she’ll come back to you. She might otherwise have responded but he killed it himself.

    I understand why some people don’t bother though. I had a message from a girl once and we CLEARLY had nothing in common. She spoke in text speak and ignored that I wanted an educated and articulate woman because I’m highly qualified and an intellectual match is more important to me than anything else. When I responded “I really don’t see we have anything in common but good luck.” She replied “it’s because I’m overweight isn’t it… You men blah blah blah.” Truth was she just ignored what I said I was looking for. She, like the guy above, clearly have an entitlement complex.
