Is it Too Good To Be True?

K Briefly on this hand fetish thing! One of my commenters (I believe Two Date Diva) mentioned that she had heard of foot fetishes, but not hand fetishes. I agree I had never heard of them either. But now I'm starting to think I'm living under a rock! Because this message just arrived in my inbox, from a DIFFERENT guy... and for the record, there is no close up picture of my hands or anything on any profil ethat I have!

Subject: Your Subject Line here-----your pic's
nice polished fingernails...nice !!

That's it, that was the whole message!! Is there a club or something? maybe I better filter through my photos and take some out!

Anyway, on to the real topic. I've been chatting with a guy on MSN and it's actually going well! He's nice, he hasn't made any stupid comments (like the moron who said I fill out my shirt well), and he actually seems interested. So am I missing something? Is this just too good to be true? I wonder if he'd go see Sex In the City with me? If he agrees to that, then he really is too good to be true!

Stay tuned for updates!

I Can't Even Believe the Nerve of this Guy

Remember a few posts back, the guy who had kind of a hand obsession, but didn't think he could date someone who wore "so many rings?" (I wear 1 on each hand). Anyway, I thought that after that little conversation, that things were oh so over with this idiot. WOW was I wrong on that front. This jack-ass extrodinaire had the nerve to message me and ask me to post a new photo of me with just my hands!

Dude, you're a few aces short of a full deck! Like I need the image of you jerkin your gerkin to a picture of my hands! EWW!

Other then that little tidbit, my online dating life (and IRL dating life) has been less then exciting, so I have nothing new to report. Sad I know. But I have some events coming up that could be promising in the whole dating department. So stay tuned!

Totally Off Topic but Worth a Discussion OR DUMBEST SURVIVOR PLAYER EVER!

Short and sweet today since I haven't been checking my online dating e-mail, so I have nothing bad to report. Actually I have some good. (I know, I'm shocked too). I've been talking to a guy on MSN who seems normal, and isn't making drunken pick-up line comments.


Who watched Survivor last night? All I have to say is Erik, I hope you like your ice cream scooping job. You're going to be there a while brother. We kind of pinned what was going to happen early on. Since the previews said it would be a shock, I said he's going to give away his immunity. Then I started thinking that he cannot be THAT stupid. Oh did he prove me wrong. I think Amanda's comments to the camera while she was voting summed it up well...because she basically was at a loss for words.

They showed Ozzy's face and he had a complete look of WTF as he shook his head. And James, always good for a laugh proudly announces "I am no longer the dumbest survivor in history."

in closing, I would like to quote from Jeff Probst and the recap on www.televisionwithoutpity.com

Probst calls this a "life lesson," although if that's a lesson you need for your life I'm not sure how much longer you're going to be living it. Putting pants on in the morning has to be quite the brainteaser.

MSN is the Singles Bar of the Internet.

Well dear readers, I thought that this would be a rather slow week. Not too much action on the old dating sites. But then I received an IM from a man I had decided was worthy enough to be added to MSN. We had chatted a bunch of times and he seemed like a nice guy, we had things in common. You know just your basic idle chit chat. Now, I don't know what it is about MSN that causes this whole Jekyll and Hyde syndrome, but MY GOD! It's like as soon as some of them get on MSN it's like a invitation for their unattractive, bar pick-up guy side to come out.

Things started out nice and normal. You know "hi, how are you?" All the pleasantries. Then a compliment! "I love the picture of you in your office." Aww isn't that sweet ladies? He said "I presented myself well." OK whatever that means, It's a compliment, I'll take it. But beware of the compliment ladies, it's like a set up. Butter you up so you let down your guard and then WHAM! they hit you with the bull shit! It's like "here little girl, want some candy." Don't take the candy! Don't get into the inconspicuous white van. STRANGER DANGER!

Because after this compliment "nice guy" went to "drunk pick up line guy" like that! (pretend I just snapped my fingers).

"Yeah you really fill out that shirt well. I'm having visions of attacking you at your desk." At this point, were I actually at a bar, I would be looking at this guy with the one raised eyebrow clearly meaning "you're kidding right? that's the best you got?"

Had he stayed nice guy and just stuck with the compliment, I would have kept chatting. But, no, you had to mention the girls didn't you. My eyes are up here bone head.

So I did the equivalent of walking away at a bar. Blocked!

And another one bites the dust!

Dude You're like 100 Years Old. Back the EFF OFF!

What is it with like 65 year old men messaging 20 something year old women? I really don't understand the mentality here. Unless you look like Clooney or Connery, I doubt you have a shot buddy! And if you do have a shot, um gross.

I know Viagara has made it possible for you men to keep up with the younger population, but seriously, how many women in my age group are actually psyched about meeting with a man who is likely older then her father? Unless she has Daddy issues...and even then, eww.

Can someone please explain this phenomenon to me?

I also want to know, why, when my profile says I'm looking for long term, and I want children someday and I'm looking for someone with similar interests and between the ages of 27 and 35, these old men actually think that I am going to answer their message that says "hey baby, you're hot, we should hook up for some casual fun." (actual message in my inbox). Dream on buddy, just because I'm on an online dating site doesn't mean I'm desperate.

Go away, it ain't gonna happen!

Websites Don't Listen

So I'm checking out a new site (since the other I'm on does not seem to be producing results). I fill out their questionaire on what I like and what I'm looking for.

One of my big things is absolutely NO SMOKERS! So I click the link that says my matches and I want to know how this ingenious website decides that these gentlemen are my matches? I think the whole questionaire thing is just a scam. Here's why...I enter the age range I'm looking for and there were a pile of "matches" out of my age range. I said to only show profiles with pictures. most of the profiles shown have no pictures. I said no smokers and the first profile I clicked on was a "heavy smoker."

And here is the main reason why I think these questionaires and the fact that they match you on compatibility is bull shit is because lets say I clicked on 10 profiles. 9 out of 10 of those profiles had NO INFORMATION.

For one thing, how does the site know that we're a match if the guy hasn't filled out his info to match up with my info? (KWIM?)

And second, guys, if you don't fill out your profile, then how am I supposed to know that I want message you? DUH!

Anyway, that's my brief rant for the day. Back to the search. I'm also on the lookout for some more crazy profiles!

I have a longer, better post to put up later when I'm more awake. But I had to add this while it was fresh in my mind.

I went on one of my online dating sites to check my messages (none *sigh*) but on the homepage was a smattering of random profiles, and this was the first one...male, 54, wants kids (what?) here was his profile... Oh it says the type of relationship he's looking for is a talk/e-mail one, but then that oh so important tagline I mentioned says "looking for a wife."

i love asian women i know they raised right and make excellent wives to be with they also dont think age is a problems and besides all that they are most berautiful women in the world and i willing to fly to meet and be with you so we know we right forever

OMG!!! Do profiles like this really work? Don't they call this mail-order brides?

It takes all kinds I suppose!
