Bees are Attracted to Honey, Not Dickheads

His email consisted of three paragraphs. One to pad each insult.

From paragraph 1:

"You get points for being a Skins fan. But, other than a healthy interest in sports, I hope you have more to offer - I mean, I can easily enjoy sports with my buddies, but I'd like the women I date (yes, he used the plural form of woman) to have more to offer."

And paragraph 2:

"I also see you're looking for someone "outdoorsy"- what exactly is your definition? I hope you're not the type to consider "roughing it" as walking the C&O canal in running shoes while gabbing on your cell phone."

Ok, in an offer of full disclosure, he did put a :-P after that statement. But, really? :-P doesn't do much for me after a second insult.

And for his parting words:

"I'm sure your headline (phrase people see before clicking on a profile) has caused your inbox to flood with emails from pudgy, middle-aged divorcees, so I'll let you get back to reading them."

If this were the hive, he would not be banging the queen.

Oh how I used to LOVE reading (read: sharing them with all my friends) the responses from men. I would usually then antagonize them a bit with a response. Do you respond to the jerks just for fun?

And I'm with nutt... do you respond (which I'm sure would be priceless), or just ignore?

Unfortunately ladies, I just ignored it. I don't think I could keep my temper in check with the jerks. Revenge is sweet, but so is personal safety. response.

Mr Chip on the Shoulder - pretty sure I've already dated him for you and he's an ass.

A friend of mine said that people will tell you exactly who they are within the first few minutes of meeting them. Congrats! This guy just told you that he's a jerk who is full of himself.

I bet $50 he's average looking at best. People don't put up that fake supreme confidence/arrogance unless they are covering up for some insecurity.

I'm constantly astounded. I'm back online, myself. I've gotten 2 line sentences. A guy who wanted feedback on his profile (and wanted me to compliment him on his physique!), another who after a few email exchanges said, "Drop me a note sometime". And one that said, after I sent him a wink, that I should, "please reply in email if interested".

I agree with Home Improvement Ninja, best foot forward guys!

Classy. Yup...I think I talked to and/or dated him too.

CoatMan said...

What on earth kind of bitter and weird buffoon would waste his and your time writing that nonsense?

Can I just say that I LOVE the title of this post!

Remember to be yourself during the date. Don't put on any airs or try to be someone you're not. If there's something about yourself that you think would effect the relationship, be sure to get it out in the open in the beginning. This allows the other person to know who you truly are, and if they stick with you, it's because they know the real you.
