Third message online dating
In this case, this gentleman not only followed up with a second message, but he followed up to ENSURE I did in fact receive his first message… I definitely got that incredibly important and well thought-out first message, guy. And what the f^&% is up with the lack of punctuation, guy??? I would prefer to get off the site at some point during the day and run an errand, eat, work, or do ANYTHING ELSE. Oh, and based on his pics, he’s definitely not 70 years old, as opposed to what his profile suggests.
It starts out OK, but by the third sentence the meaning is drowning in syllables.
This guy can’t even muster up the “H” in “hey” by his third attempt: This man literally took out a section of his original message on each follow-up: As we saw above, some men like to follow-up after their first message. It literally took me 2 seconds to type that shit just now. This guy wanted to make sure I knew exactly what he was saying… Some men like to ask for assistance on refining their profiles or messages. Why don’t we start with that shitty introduction and go from there. Some men take it personally when you don’t respond back and assume you’re stuck up.
In most cases, I think it’s because they’ve either forgotten that they messaged in the first place or they figured the 2nd, 3rd, or 100th time’s a charm. In this next case, dude asked for assistance on just him… I think I’m the girl not responding to your “Whoa mama…” Some guys really don’t understand that ignoring is the universal sign of “I’m just not that into…” STOP ALREADY!!! I’ve found a lot of men feel entitled to a response to their intro messages. What they don’t seem to understand is that my inbox is overflowing with bullshit “Hello” messages and I simply refuse to provide a courteous response to every single guy that messages me.
Perhaps these dudes realized that after their first message and are just attempting to give it a better shot on their second… These are what I like to call the “Escalation Hellos.” They start off as a simple “Hi” and morph into full-blown introductions in the course of days or weeks.
Sometimes a simple “Hi” or “Hello” just doesn’t feel like it goes far enough.
