And Now For Something Completely Different

(I'm totally not making this up. Just so you know.)

Usually when I get a message from a guy on the online site, I glance at his photo thumbnail and then click on his profile before reading the message. That way, if I'm not interested in his profile, I'm not too bothered by what the message might say.

So the other day, when I got a message notification, I clicked on the profile and it turned out the fellow seemed like a pretty nice guy. He was around my age, cute enough and we had some similar interests. So I clicked on his message to see what he had to say.

And I had to read it twice to make sure my eyes weren't deceiving me.

"Hi, it seems like we have a lot in common! Do you have a pic of you in high heels?"

Really? Seriously? That's what you're going with?

I'm somewhere between amused and baffled. Bemused perhaps? Because know there are some kinky guys on these sites and I'm sure there are some guys just looking to hook up, but they're usually really clear about it in their profile. But this was just a nice, normal seeming guy. Who wanted to know if I had a picture of me in high heels.

To....see if I clean up nice? is the best possible reason I can see him having for asking.

I did get a good chuckle out of it before deleting the message.

Not a great opening line fellas. Just sayin'.

That is one of the worst pet peeves. When the message does not match the profile of what they claim to be looking for.

Glad your'e finding the humour in it all.

grrr... I hate it when I forget that "<" is not a valid character.

Trying again...

At least he was being straight forward:

See post on 13 OCT, 2011 - "Guilty Conscience"

He was just cutting to the chase. Not very diplomatic or romantic about it though. :)

I'm still finding it pretty amusing JS :)

Totally, My Inner Cheerleader! lol

It's a head-shaker Date a frenchman!

Honestly Dominic? Not on my computer, no. The only one I can think of is from being a bridesmaid. :)

Fair enough Anonymous, but still bordering on the creepy side ;)

"Oh, hello! I thought we had a lot in common too, and then YOU ASKED FOR A PICTURE OF ME IN HIGH HEELS! You crazy *insert insult of choice*."
