Anyway, here’s the conversation. The italicized stuff in brackets is my thoughts.
Mamfclfg: very intriguing profile
me: Thanks. I was in something of a poetic mood when i wrote it. Haven't really looked at it in a year or so since i'm not on much any more.
Mamfclfg: you are good and creative writer...I like to write too
Mamfclfg: My name is Mike...hi
me: That's cool. What do you write? Poetry? Fiction?
me: Hi. I'm Elizabeth (but you knew that from the profile. :))
Mamfclfg: Fiction..humor....I write a lot for my job too.....I'm a police officer..a detective and I write a lot in work
[Okay, definitely an adult. Seems like a reasonable, interesting guy, though. Could be a decent conversation. And i’m always happy when the connection point is writing.]
me: Oh that's cool.
Mamfclfg: I like stories about people...about life....I like to laugh about life...laugh at myself at times..in my stories
Mamfclfg: tell me about you..how old are you?
Mamfclfg: hmmm....then I'm an "older man"
[I start typing “I’m not really looking for Internet romance anyway, so we can just chat.”]
Mamfclfg: 19 turns me on though....a young..vibrant..intelligent..sexual age
me: That's quite a compliment.
me: And how old are you?
Mamfclfg: 35...but a young and physically fit 35...:)...6'3"..210lbs..tell me about you
[Like i care what you look like. But you don’t know that]
me: Short, slender, fairly attractive. College student who's always researching something or other 'cause she's a big dork like that. Not terribly social, but good one-on-one. Big reader. Vegetarian, loves people who are enthusiastic about causes. Always interested in learning new things.
Mamfclfg: how short is short?
Mamfclfg: petite?....I like petite women....how long is your hair?
[I’m starting to get annoyed that it’s all about how i look.]
me: Yup, petite.
me: Just got my hair cut, actually. It's just below my ears. Very cute.
Mamfclfg: petite is very hot....I'm a very passionate person....love to please...especially a younger woman
[Okay, enough is enough.]
me: I'm afraid i'm really not looking for Internet romance though.
Mamfclfg: okay..but should you ever want anything at all...I'm intrigued by you
[Okay, i admit, i’m flattered.]
me: :) Okay, i'll keep that in mind.
Mamfclfg: stay in touch whnever you would like
Mamfclfg: tease me now and tell me what you are wearing as we speak....I like mental images
[Do you not take hints, pal? Like, do you need a sledgehammer or something?]
me: I am definitely not in the mood for this.
And gee, it’s been maybe 10 or 20 minutes and no response. No apology or anything. I’m shocked! Shocked am i! *wipes off the sarcasm that has been dripping onto the keyboard*
If i wanted to, i could be such an Internet whore. That’s at least the second older guy who’s wanted to get with me. And to think on Friday i was telling Michele i have only 3 sketchy guys. How foolish of me to only think of real life people.
But seriously, i am just very amused. (Well, with the online, anyway.) I’m not gonna miss the sketch at all when i go back to school, but i don’t really wanna block while i am home.
Okay, bedtime for real.
