Being that you don’t know me,  you likely don’t know that I have relatively large eyes.  Not in a “bug-eyed” type of way, (although if I open them wide enough, they would seem bug-eyed)  but – and this comes from @A_Dude79 –  my irises are large.    Another friend of mine calls them my “Disney Princess” eyes –  just to put it into another perspective.   (It’s weird to describe your own eyes, I kind of feel like a tool right now..)   But that should hopefully put into perspective the online dating message I received yesterday:

“I love your large eyeballs, seriously, they are so hot!”

Commenting on one’s eyes is an easy way to break the ice – because who doesn’t like to hear they have nice eyes? …  But this was a new approach I hadn’t received before.  I wasn’t sure what to respond.

“Pahaha!!  Thank you.”

What came next surprised me (that’s what she said):

“Want to ride my tractor?”  (Is that what you guys are calling it these days?)  “I just put new spark plugs in it AND adjusted the valves!!”

If that’s a euphemism (and I rather suspect it is).. I don’t get it.

“I’ll pass..  but I appreciate the offer.”   (I think.)

“Probably a good idea,  I just bumped in to something (possibly an understatement) with it but I don’t recall what.”

Now I’m confused..  maybe he is talking about a tractor?  Or.. maybe he’s trying to say he is not sure if he caught an STD?

I think I’d rather not know..

    Wow! Where do you find these guys? I thought my online dating adventures were weird.

    Sounds like a keeper… He compliments you, he has his own vehicle, may have an STD… What’s not to like? Aside from the STD of course.

    As a guy who knows what a tractor looks like, I can tell you I have no clue what the whole valves and spark plugs thing is about.

    Seeing how that is his second message, there’s indeed a good chance that it’s a euphemism. Either that, or he’s confused about the meaning of words and how to have a conversation. Something that is also very possible.
