The Stupid Side of Online Dating...

Sad, but oh so true..

For all of the many positive things that came from my divorce, I've found that trying to date again hasn't been one of them.  I remember at first being so excited to date, thinking of all the cute, sweet single men out there... however, nobody ever tells you that it's damn near impossible to find a guy who isn't unemployed, an alcoholic, or a narcissist.  

Below you will find a perfect example of the stupid side of dating.  Notice the wording of his message titles..

I really enjoyed your profile, It is refreshing and sort of sexy.  
I am Chad in Brainerd. Yes, I can send a pict, but it has to 
be email, or text, because my phone don't let me upload picts.
I won't dissapoint you!

Are you kidding me? Just so you know, I always go through all of 
my emails first, and then go back and reply to those that 
interested me, not that I owe YOU any explanations.. and you should know that I was going to going to reply to your message.  Consider this your one and only reply.

And here's some advice, you can take it or leave it.. but, one should 
never presume to know another person's  intentions.. and sending messages 
like you just sent me isn't gong to endear you to any woman.

Now that's the pot calling the kettle black isn't it.. if you read above, it seems it was just a few short messages ago that you judged me... just 
saying,  DUDE..

Yeah, well you have no one to blame but yourself for the terms we 
started out on... and good luck in your search as well... you'll need all
the luck you can get!

I'm sorry for how I acted yesterday, I still think you're really cute n sassy! Can we meet sometime?

After reading his apology(which I'm sure was very sincere..), I made the decision to not reply. I figured I'd probably have better luck finding a more stable man at the state mental hospital. I hit DELETE and moved on to my next message...

Has anyone had experiences similar to this on a dating site? If so, how did you respond?

No matter how love-sick a woman is, she shouldn't take the first pill that comes along.
