Does this work? I mean, does this sort of email actually get responses? 'cause this guy was a "favorite" of 15 women [I had to click on the profile]. I take it as sweet whenever anyone makes the effort to contact me, but I'm at a loss here. He's hot, and he does look like fun, but my lord. Nothing in this relates to anything in my profile. Except that I'm female. Yet he took the time to email.

im single fun man no problems lookn for same xcept a female

Aw, is he still in college, living in a dorm room?

Well, he might be fun if you're just looking to have fun. Listen to your instincts and go from there.

Brice said...

Is that how he spelled "except?" That would show all right there.

I think some guys just email everyone, and hope for a response. It's Dating Spam.

Tickersoid said...

I get stuff like that, usually it's a lady in Africa who want's to marry me.

I have no experience with dating on the internet so I can't help you.

Susan as herself said...

I agree with Brice.

Whenever I see poor spelling and no punctuation (even in computer speak), I see a red flag.

Sex spam.

On the ther hand, if I was gonna enjoy some spam, that would be it. :)

That gy is retrded. Rd lite.

thats pimp way 2 write

Laverne said...

oh honey... take it from an internet dating retiree, that's nothing. It's actually tame.

But I wonder; how hard can it be really to spell one sentence correctly?

Stewie said...

There is little doubt in my mind that it works, and more power to him if it does.

But me? Hell, I don't think I'd be wanting the woman it worked on.


My verification word is "beweres", which was first read as "bewares". Bewares ladies!

Snooze said...

Eros: Had he been twenty I would have smiled, but 40 is a tad old to be unable to write in complete sentences.

Brice: I was amused, but you're right - it's dating spam

Tickers: You too?

Torn: I've had wonderful replies so I look at it like the online bar scene - good and bad and somewhere in between!

Susan: At least he didn't use smileys

Rox: Agreed.

Ty: But i'm no ho!

Laverne: Oh, he's harmless, I just wondered who that actually worked with (apparently quite a few though)

Stewie: I wish him well. Just well away from me.

Inexplicable DeVice said...

All the points I was going to pick up on have been picked up on already. I guess I should've got here sooner?

"xcept" that 'Favourite of Fifteen' could be looking for anything but a female - as can be interpreted by his non-existant grammar?

I do wonder if it's the same lady in Africa who's contacting you and Tickers?

Snooze said...

IDV: lol - I love your take that he in fact isn't looking for a female. Score more points for the Canadian educational system where no one learns anything but they all feel good...

Freak Magnet said...

Lazy. He wants you to do all the digging. He may say he hates talking on the computer, but whatever. If you're on it to do something, you need to suck it up and make a good attempt.

Of course, if he's hot, it would totally work on me. :p

Ponita said...

Ignore him, Snooze. He's fishing for sex. Probably gets it at times as well. I've gotten these many times. Usually they want to know if you have a webcam.... you can figure it out from there. And age has nothing to do with being able to form complete sentences. Some people just ain't too smart!

A side note: re: your comment to me at Eros' blog: email me.... I am not sure what you are wanting to know. My address is on my profile.

Snooze said...

FM: Yeah, he's looking for sex.

Ponita: I didn't answer him. As for you - I can't find your email. Now I feel even more dense. Are you sure it's on your profile? Can you email me at letmesnooze. I'm on g mail.
