The language of love
Before I decide to make myself comfy on the shelf, I thought I might give online dating a shot. Exhaust all possibilities before admitting defeat, if you will.
Apparently people in New York City have huge successes with online dating.
Apparently I’m not people.
Do you know what I found most astonishing? Not the pictures, or lack of tall men, or even the 40-year-olds seeking 20-year-olds.
It was the writing. It was not good.
What do you :) mean happy hour @ Be @ 1 won’t get you in the mood!!!??!?!?!!? :) All girls love it!!! :\ !? I want to have youre babies!!!!!??
(This was taken from a message that I actually got.)
Where is the wit and a wholesome full stop when you need one? I long for the deadpan of a Wes Anderson film.
So gents, here’s a wee tip. Exclamation marks are used to draw attention to warnings and danger. Just think what sort of message you’re sending out when you include more than one.
