Oh, you like me do you?

What a lovely photo of you and your shiny car. And another of you with a fucking big fish you presumably have killed. It's not as bad as the photo I saw of a guy pig shooting, but the pig shooting guy gets points for an action shot and I've said nothing, anywhere, about being interested in the sorts of things you are.

In fact, if you'd read my profile (admittedly an ask from an illiterate wanker like you), you'd notice I'm quite clear about not liking people who are hung up on cars and bullshit status symbols. Clearly I need to put something in there about trophy fishermen as well, at least I would if I got the impression anyone ever read the fucking thing.

BTW, what is it with trophy fishermen? Why are there so many on OKStupid? (Along with bushwalkers. Always with the fucking outdoorsy bushwalking. There cannot possibly be that many bushwalkers in the world, the environment just wouldn't stand up to it. Fuck climate change, erosion would have wiped us all out long before now. And entirely the fault of men who think they look attractive when they're wearing a backpack.)

But yeah, getting back to trophy fishermen...just...why?

And you think it should be illegal to burn flags. Really? Have you even thought that through? Has it not occurred to you that people might think that's a really dumb position to take? That it could, in fact, be controversial to the point of "not touching you with a 10 foot pole"?

Why do you like me exactly?

Can you spell "juxtaposition"? Maybe you could just copy and paste. Oh, no wait, maybe that's too hard as well.


And hi to you too, Mr 27 years old. You are looking for someone roughly your own age. Why.are.you.e.ven.here.?

Hold still a moment, I'm happy to give you a chinese burn...but I don't think it's going to go beyond that. Sorry.

Ach, what you've experienced so far tallies with other people's reports of OKC. It's not reputed to be the site where people who can spell hang out. Try RSVP, maybe?

You might remember that when our recent, abhorred President W, leaving office, was asked what he felt his greatest accomplishment was, he described a large fish he had caught in the (artificial) lake at his ranch. This might be all we need to know about trophy fishermen.

Also, I assume that some men show you their cars because they've finally worked out that you don't want to see a picture of what they're really proud of...

Guy messaged me this morning saying I look 'sweet', and that guys must tell me that all the time. I was all LOL NOPE also let me show you my potty mouth and angry feminism.

Edit: trophy fishing, really? That's not something I see a lot of. Also have you read Paula Kamen's book All in my Head? it has a chapter about dating as a chronically ill girl, and mentions how it's hard because all the dudes want to go hiking.

Yeah, you need a photo done like the girl in "the Excorcist". Head spinning, vomit and pointing out to the priest that his granny sucks cocks in hell.

Trophy fishing - it's probably an age thing, done by men in their 40s to prove they haven't gone.... soft....

(Because aging gracefully would be too hard.)

Ha now I really want to do the exorcist pic thing. I'LL SHOW YOU SWEET, BITCH.

Nice to know I have trophy fishing menz to look forward to in a few years. :-/

Oh yeah. It's all downhill from here...

I think I shall be reading that book you recommended, btw.

It's a great book. The dating part is just a tiny bit of it, but it is just a really great, well-researched book about living with chronic illness.

Lord, but you make me laugh Splodge.

But really, why would you think its appropriate to put hunting and fishing photos on a dating site?

Dunno, but if you find out the answer, be sure to share it.

My last comment on this subject - I swear.

There is a certain advantage to being able to weed out the more dubious prospects doing what you are doing.

I made the mistake of trying the Speed Dating craze. I think I should have set my expectations more accurately when I learned the event would be held in a restaurant with the name (and I kid you not) Hell's Kitchen.

I think they gave every one one or two minutes to sit with each potential, with a little score sheet in one hand taking notes. At the end of the event, you tally your scores, indicate who you would be willing to go on a date with and then you would be set up with contact info from those who you indicated but only if they felt the same about you.

Again, I didn't lie, disclosed that I was an actor. Oddly enough, not a single gal was interested. I guess two minutes was insufficient time to let them see the potential in me. Or more likely, they were afraid I'd insist on going dutch on the first date, or her greater fear, having to pick up the whole tab since actors are notorious about skipping out on bills. Not a fair assumption, but how are they to know?

Okay, enough of that. Good luck to you. You never know.

I prefer going dutch - don't like feel obliged to anyone.

They might not have believed you when you said you were an actor. It's like someone saying they're an artist, or muso. Could be awesome, might be not true.

I couldn't cope with Speed Dating, I suspect I'd end up hiding in the toilets.

Actually, I've had a thought. The Wheeler Centre does bibliophile dating nights, sorted by age, sexuality, etc. If you can summon the spoons, I'm guessing it might be worth a look.
Jul. 18th, 2013 10:33 am (UTC)
Aiiee! I fear I'm not bookish enough.

I need a night for bibliophile wannabes.
Jul. 18th, 2013 11:15 am (UTC)
Nah, I'm sure you'd qualify. And you'd *definitely* get a better class of man attending. The Wheeler Centre is pinko central. Men! Who can spell and read!
