I'm Not Your Baby - The Dating Game Part 2

I didn't plan on doing a follow-up post to The Dating Game, but since I've shared my tips for online dating, I thought I'd share a few things I've learned lately thanks to said dating site.

I've Learned...

All red-heads are naughty
"So are you a naughty girl? I heard all redheads are."  (the nicest thing I can say about this is that it wasn't his opening pick-up line)

Some don't know the difference between too and to
"Easy to talk too" (You speak as well?  Fabulous!)
Looking 4 a good lady too b wit

95% of messages I get will contain a question proving that the dude didn't read my profile
"ok are u single do u have kids where u living ur age" (I can't even speak about the lack of punctuation)

Pictures taken in the bathroom mirror will inevitably have the phone covering half the face

My version of it (maybe I should post this on my profile)

Dudes are guilty of the duck face too.  And what's the deal with biting your lower lip?

Ben Stiller's duck face...found here

Dudes like to post pics with a dead fish (is it just a southern thing or maybe an homage to the name of the site??)

Dudes like to give advice
just be your self :) (Thanks, I was trying to be someone else)
Don't be shy... 
Don't be stuck-up!!! (damn, I was totally gonna be that way)

Dudes get a little confident in their headlines
The most qualified man for you.....
im gifted lik da honor roll (kinda questioning your grade in English)
I'm a legend. You should take a picture with me!
The Most Interesting Man In The World...

Spell check is not an automatic
Prefessional, Fun and Easy Going

Da girls dem suga (is this even English?)
Helllllllooooooooo Ladys

Keys must be missing on the keyboard for some
Jus Bein Me
Looking 4 some 1that will b faithful

They are all looking for something
Looking for someone compatible
Looking for someone special
Looking for the right kind of crazy

Some feel that persistence is key
"whats up with u"     7/26/12  8:15 AM (I didn't respond)
"do u mind if i text u"  7/26/12 9:32 AM (yep, still not responding)
"booooooo"  7/26/12 10:15 AM
"booooooo"  7/30/12 12:22 PM

Wittiness still exists
Here's My Profile, So Contact Me Maybe? 
"is this online people shopping?"

And by the way...I'm not your baby

"o ok that is really gerat baby" (guess who didn't get a response?)


  1. Oh my goodness, thanks for sharing this. My husband and I were rolling :)

  5. My fave: im gifted lik da honor roll (kinda questioning your grade in English)


    I was on last year for about two months. I couldn't take anymore of the "I'm hot - you're hot - let's hook up" or "I'm hot - let's hook up" or "You're hot - let's hook up" so I quit.

    HOWever, I recently put myself up on ... and haven't done much with it. I don't think anyone's even looked at me. B*stards!


Thanks for taking a minute to send me a note! How I love a little love!
