“Hey. Our profiles don’t match up that well but… Hi my names **** I think they match up enough to kinda see what’s up.”
This message (that REALLY sells our potential compatibility, by the way..) comes from a 38 year old man who claims he is looking for a girl who makes him laugh. Challenge accepted.
“The ceiling! :)”
Yes, I did respond back with probably one of the corniest dad jokes of all time.
Did he really not get that stupid joke?
“Ok. Well I don’t get it so…. Just trying to talk”
He really didn’t get it. Wow.
I decided to visit his profile at this point, to decide if I wished to interact further. For my male readers who come here to find out what not to do in online dating, here’s a helpful tip: Don’t advertise that you still live at home! Even if it’s temporary. Even if there is a REALLY good reason. That information does not belong on your profile.
I decided to let this fish back in the sea.
An hour later:
“Oh the ceiling. Ha I get it.”
Two hours later:
“Got that one too slow. A test I get it.”
Twenty four hours later:
“Thinking about it today. Really feel like an idiot.”
Who would have thought a corny dad joke would make an ever-lasting impression on someone.. or at least a 24 hour dwell session.
