Because I think it's hilarious to procrastinate, I delayed deleting my account on that site where guys pay you to go on a date. You know, the definition of escorting?
Anyway, some knob offered me $30 to go on a date with him AND he's from San Clemente. I don't need to explain any further why that is an automatic rejection. Reason: Bid too low
Then he IMMEDIATELY came back with $60. Rejection. Reason: Not my type (But between you and me, the bid was still too low.) Instant new bid at $100. Rejection but it's getting fun now and I'm intrigued. Reason: Not my type
New bid at $101. That made me laugh. You can't communicate with these guys unless you accept the bid, so I accept. I message: You are persistent.
He starts in with accolades about my picture and my awesome profile. (It's pretty unconventional and rad.) He wants to text, so I give him my number.
This is where it all goes downhill. First he sends me a video taken from his phone of some rock concert. I ask, "What is that?" and his response is, "Steel panther last night at house of blues!" I instantly think, I don't give a DAMN. Oh did I mention earlier he asked about a good place to grab a late breakfast, and I'm already halfway done teaching Block C?
Then I get this (and I detest this): What are you up to now? Send me a pic of you!
I don't know what all of the youngsters are up to these days, but sending a picture of myself to a stranger seems tacky, naive, and downright dangerous.
I respond: Not a big fan of sending pics to people I haven't met yet. One step at a time.
Ladies and gentleman, I am no prude but if there is one thing I believe in, it's manners. Manners change from region to region and culture to culture. This man and I are not from the same region nor the same culture.
His response: Well for the record we agreed to meet and I spent 6.75$ to message you! And I have 3 pics on my profile and you have one from far away (not true). Let's be fair here.
My response: Uh oh. I don't think we're going to get along.
He thought my response was hilarious, but I was obviously done. He sent a few weird pictures and then realized I wasn't interested. Who raised this man?
On a higher note, Earnest has asked me out and we're trying to meet before I go to San Francisco next Wednesday. We're having a difficult time matching schedules. Yes. I'm really that busy.
