OKStupid.

My profile now begins thus:

Read my profile before you decide whether or not to say hi. (FFS!)

And I just got this:

Hello dear, how are you doing, I like ur profile and i will like to get to know more about you...


Dear Leroy,

TBH that sounds like it could be a English not being first language thing.

Seems to be Americans, mostly. So I guess you're right.

Yes, they have a lot of non-European immigrants.

I know that's not what you meant, but since I dated an American with four university degrees, the whole 'lol Americans are thick!' thing doesn't sit well with me.

It reads totally like an "English *is* my first language but I don't care about it..."

It's possible he is actually 80 and that's just how 80 year olds address unknown women.

There is wonderful fodder for writing in those online dates. The reality truly is stranger than what an uninitiated writer could imagine.

I went through a stage of online dating websites but not having even the spare bucks to pay for any memberships, and the free ones only attracting a truly odd caliber of prospects, I finally gave up and decided my life was better served learning how to function as a monk.

Well, not only that but being an actor - and not willing to lie about that fact - makes just about everyone rather skittish. I suppose I don't blame them. Perpetually broke.
