Don't forget to wait until it's her last day, then send it as she's walking out of the building.

:slol: nah I actually asked her out face to face and got her number

The popular thing these days seems to be sending dick pics.....do I send these after the date or just before when I’m driving to pick her up?

Gotta love my ex. We're living together until she moves to Oz.

She's sat next to me taking pictures of the cat, I glsnce over while on the PS4 and noticed the camera is tracking the cats face and remark on how cool that is.

She then gives me a dirty look and when I ask what's wrong starts talking about me being nosey and invading her privacy.

YOU ARE SAT NEXT TO ME ON THE SOFA WOMAN.

She's fine most of the time but when she's in a bad mood she makes a big deal out of everything. It's kind of hilarious :lol:

Btw we sold the tortoise, sorry :(

Well, that's the subtitle of the thread gone. Thanks, Fade.

Seriously, though, that does seem a bit awkward to deal with.

I'm trying to think of a witty pin to respond with, but can't think of one, I'll get back to you :shifty:

That kinda thing happens once every couple of weeks, most of the time it's fine.

It used to, but I've realised that if she's in a bad mood literally everything I do is going to annoy her so there's no point worrying about it. Better to just let her have her huff and storm off somewhere :lol:

Well, online dating's going well so far...
On the first few days I got one reply, then nothing from that person. And now, I might have made... well, I'm pretty sure "humongous dick" would be an apt description, even though that was not my intention.

You made a big dick?

Don’t sweat the rejection, everyone gets constant rejection online. It’s all a numbers game, and a question of perseverance.

It wasn't exactly rejection. The profile in question said that she was smart enough to give and take sarcasm, but stupid enough to push pull doors every single time. In my message, I tried a sarcastic comment that read

Every single time pushing on pull doors is a lot. If only there was something... a sign of some kind... Maybe on the handle...

What other interests do you have, aside from the fascination with doors?


I don't think that went down too well. Her message back amounted to saying I was taking the piss and learn what a joke was. I call her out for not being able to take the sarcasm, she says that using sarcasm and being a dick are two completely different things, which I interpret as her calling me one, since I did apologise for jumping straight into the deep end and haven't heard anything back.

And speaking of my profile, I rewrote it earlier when I added a new picture to it.

I like adventure and exploring new places, which is one reason I'm into videogames as much as I am. But that can also apply to books and video media as well. And the great outdoors, where any place can provide new experiences. Anywhere with nice-looking water is a great place to be.

Love of a franchise is always a good thing to have, and that's where Star Wars fits. It's my number one. It'd be a great experience to go to one of the Celebration events, which look very packed full of things to do. I can get behind most media, with sci-fi/fantasy being my core genre.

You want to know more? I'm a writer. I self-publish on the Kindle Store. I hope very much to get some large sales in for those I have published to attract enough support to make it big. I'm a friendly person, ready to get to know people and find some fun new experiences with them.

I don’t put that much effort into first messages but that one's absolutely fine, I wouldn’t sweat it. People get offended or turned off by all kinds of messages. You won’t hear back from her. I wouldn’t have apologised - unless you’re intending to be a dick don’t worry about that sort of thing, no need to be hung up in the slightest.

What are you using? If tinder or bumble that’s too long. Cut out most of the 2nd para, basically just to “I love sci-fi and fantasy, particularly Star Wars. I’m quite the nerd if you haven’t guessed by now.” I don’t mean that to be cruel but a bit of self deprecation is always good.

I’d chop out half the last para too to just like I’m a writer and love meeting new people. People will then ask you what you write once a convo is struck up and you can take it from there.

I'm not hung up on it, but it was just weird that her profile and reaction were completely at odds with each other. I just felt the need to apologise after it so I wouldn't be hung up on it. No response means she doesn't care, which I suspect she didn't anyway.

I'm using Plenty of Fish. I think I recall something in the previous thread that said it was the best one to go for, so I made an account back then and forgot about it. Until I felt I wanted to start getting into dating, and found my details for it again.

I'll take your advice into consideration, since I felt myself that it needed work still. Short and sweet is probably better considering half of profiles I've seen have no effort whatsoever put into them.

Yeah I just wanted to emphasise that.

Definitely make it short and punchy with a bit of humour if possible. There’s a reason why every marketing team in the world goes for that.
