My body/brain was like Hey, Jen, hey! Don’t you wanna get up now?! Like, I know you don’t have to be at work for 3 full hours, but wouldn’t you like to lay in bed and struggle to get back to sleep for half an hour then finally give up and see what your friends are doing over on social media? Hey check out these messages that weirdos sent you over on OKC! Hahaha weirdos. Oh, look, quickmatch! You know some of these guys. Oh. Ohhh. Yikes. Maybe you shouldn’t be doing this.
Pro tip for all the men folk on dating sites- do not lead with a comment about her appearance in the first few messages. I assume if you’ve taken the time to message me that you’ve found me attractive. I don’t need your creepy commentary on my appearance. Very few dudes have pulled this off and made it actually feel like a compliment.
Also, if I try to turn you down somewhat gracefully by suggesting you are too young or too far away, please don’t try to argue it with me. And if you push for my phone number or try to make plans within 24 hours of first contact, I will generally say no.
If you do all of those things then follow up with another message later that evening that says “What’s your number, gorgeous?” You will get not so gracefully turned down.
I think I’m way too picky to be online dating- especially on a free site.
