I teased everyone awhile ago that I was going to release from time to time some of the ridiculous messages I tend to receive from the male species. You have already had the pleasure of seeing me embarrass the hell out of the “Chef”, who told me that people from New York City were better than anyone else in the United States ( read https://hotmesslife.wordpress.com/2011/07/14/the-dirty-south-the-land-of-the-spontaneous-oh-and-apparently-new-yorkers-are-great-planners/)- all via a sweet text message, no less.
This recent gem comes from a lovely gentleman from a dating website I was a member of ( I know, it’s impossible to think that someone with my charm and wit would need to resort to trolling the nets for love). It all started when the guy, let’s call him Super Awesome, sent me a message saying he liked my profile, blah blah blah. He also immediately asked for my name and phone number. I politely thanked him for the sweet message, threw him a bone and told him my REAL name, but completely ignored his requests for my digits. I received another message soon after, saying ” Nice to meet you Michelle, and may I have your phone number?” Again, I try to take the dignified route and ignore his request, replying with a ” I don’t like to give out my number that fast” diddy. Um, this is the reply I got ( I CANNOT MAKE THIS UP):

why? you have had bad experiences
why? does it send a message to the guy your easy
why? b/c every guy on here ask for your number
fast and you rather see who can put together
premeditated words over 2 weeks that may
seem like he is someone interesting and
patient but you meet him and its not the person who
wrote all those thought up things?
why????? just wondering?

Wow…you just provided me the perfect reason not to give you my number… thanks for saving me a few weeks. Also, your grammar is atrocious.
I deleted my profile soon after that. I rather be single than deal with idiots who can’t spell.
-KEEP IT A HOT MESS
