Ask Me Anything

18 Aug

I had the following interaction with a 25 year old from California.  If you have been paying attention, you are aware that California is pretty far away from me.

“Hi there how are you this evening

My name is [Name]

Would you like to talk and get to know each other

Ask me anything you would like to know about me

You look absolutely gorgeous BTW :)”

 

“Okay.  Question 1.  How many chicken nuggets can you fit in your mouth at one time?”


“Five. You?”   

(Wow.. that’s not impressive at all…)

 

“I have never attempted this.

Question 2.  What are your thoughts on the death of Elvis Presley? (Minimum 50 words)”

 

He neglected to respond to that one.. So much for ask me anything.

So – what have we learned?    That it’s totally acceptable to ask one how many chicken nuggets they can fit in their mouth.. but it’s still too soon to bring up the loss of the King of Rock and Roll.

    That’s hilarious! I think that’s about how I’m going to start responding to idiots on online dating sites.

    This guy actually seemed kind of normal. Am I missing something?

    I love your site. Awesome response to that one btw. I’m not sure I’d be able to like someone who has such a small mouth anyways, hehehe.

      What’s wrong with him, to be brief as possible, is that he has no sense of decency. The prevalence of online communication and dating has changed the way we communicate with one another. Since we are not able to actually see the individual we are talking to, we (note: when I say we I’m not referring to everyone) can sometimes forget that the words, pictures and profile that we are viewing belongs to an actual human being. A human being with beliefs, values and feelings that are separate from our own. It is very easy to forget that whomever is on the other end of the conversation is somebody’s daughter or somebody’s son. The man you are referencing has obviously forgotten that.

      Ultimately I think we, as a civilization, should at least try to focus on treating each other with dignity and respect. Of course there will ways be idiots like this guy, but that’s life I suppose
