I am probably going to get some hate for this one.. but hear me out:   I have been on OKCupid for almost 3 years now.  A few days ago, out of sheer curiosity (and social experimentation for the blog, of course)  I added “Casual Sex” to my “Looking For’ list.   Creeps (and non creeps) are coming out of the woodwork.  My internet leg has been constantly humped over the last 36 hours.  And, definitely more to come on this!

“Hi! I am [Name], i am a fun outgoing smart ass ha. I loved your profile. Not only are you pretty,but you seem genuine, and that’s hard to find on a dating site. I am sure you get a ton of messages a day. So if you could just message me when you have some free time that would be cool.
I hope the site hadn’t discouraged you too much. Anyways I would love to get to know you. How was your day?”

Now..  if you’ve read me before – I make it a point not to respond to messages that could have been copied and pasted.  I also mention this in my profile.   So, that, along with this guy says he is a smart ass.. I felt like I could be a smart ass back..  If he was worth knowing, he’d probably laugh about it:

“Thank you for your form letter. Please know that the time you took to copy and paste is very much appreciated. Hope you are having a great day!”

“Copy and paste? Are you serious? Wow have some issues with the site to accuse me? That was me. But I take it back. You obviously aren’t genuine”

I obviously pushed a button, because not even 30 seconds after receiving his defensive response:

“Wow why did I even message you. Look at me. Then look at u. Lol. Yeah that’s not a good match”

“And now I know how you handle some push back.
I think you should reconsider considering yourself a smart ass.. I clearly have you beat in that arena. Best of luck to you.”

“You clearly have me beat in the waist line too”

“Is that supposed to hurt my feelings or something?”

“Hey if you are proud. Just go with it”

“I am just curious at what you are trying to accomplish by telling me I’m fat?”

“Ha conversation over. I won. Bye”

“I guess that’s a matter of opinion. Have a nice day.”

“You got all hot and bothered ha”

“Not at all..  If that’s how you “win” conversations… There was no contest from the start.”

I honestly don’t know how one would “win” a conversation.

“Damn you are still talking? U got served”

“Oh.. Good.  My expanding waistline could use a serving.”

..And he didn’t respond after that one.. So.. I guess I won?

If you can’t take online dating with a grain of salt, and have to resort to name-calling and/or “bullying”..  You should reconsider online dating as a source of meeting people.

    Maybe he should amend his form letter from “smart ass” to “big baby who will throw an immature fit if I don’t like your response to my form letter.” Hmm… maybe that’s a bit long. He could just delete the “smart” and keep the “ass.” lol

    Perfect responses by you. Spot on.
    A guy once messaged me with a form email asking if I wanted to be friends. When I didn’t respond, he asked again and said, “Please do me the courtesy to provide a simple yes or no. I spent time reading your profile…..” (Of which there was no evidence.) So I looked on his profile and it said not to bother talking to him if you were over 125 lbs and under 5’10″. I promptly told him no, I did not want to be friends. He asked me why and I sent him an article in sizeism (it’s cool to have personal preferences. It’s ridiculous to be so specific that it’s hurtful). He said (I’m copying and pasting now), “I just can’t find anything attractive about a single girl in the height of our sexuality (20′s and 30′s) losing any determination to keep fit. I know I will get fat with her after marriage and after children, but never now as we are exploring the mating world environment….You are very attractive….” So I didn’t respond, and he bombarded me with three more messages before he gave up (on the forth I was going to block him)!

      Are you kidding me?! While a few women might be genetically super-skinny, the vast majority of women would not be healthy in that size range! I have Crohn’s, so my weight has fluctuated a lot, from 110-137, all at 5’2. I’ve been within the “healthy” range for BMI (I know it’s flawed, but it’s shorthand for healthy weights) the whole time. I can’t imagine being taller and staying under 125 lbs. Dude is an IDIOT. Good for you for calling him out!

        I may have taken it personally if it were true, but it wasn’t

    Hilarious. Guys and their ego’s. Maybe he needs some chocolate and a good cry.

    Gosh this is pathetic! What a total douchebag calling you names just because you called him out on his rubbish approach! Good for you not replying to copy and paste… If a guy can’t even think of something original to say, he’s not serious. I hope you pressed ‘block’, I use that button so liberally these days.
