Think I may give the whole thing a rest for a bit. Another woman I’ve been messaging for a week, having switched to Whatsapp, appears to be doing the same thing, but with the just disappear twist.


#863

think it just comes with the territory with online dating tbh, try not to take it too personally man.


#864

I might delete a profile and restart it. Is that okay or a bit odd


#865

Its just one of those. Probably better this way than meeting and it being awkward silences ahoy


#866

A girl messaged me asking if I’d read Lincoln in the Bardo so I’m probably going to low-key scout for wedding venues


#867

wow, sign me up


#868

I think that’s the funniest adjective they could have chosen.


#869

get spammed with so many of these things, one of them had to be good eventually


#870

Amongst the usual ‘I am hot and horny’ and ‘I am desperate for your hard cock’ I got a ‘let’s go on a date to the aquarium’, which I thought was sweet, albeit oddly specific.

#872

I know, I know it’s serious


#873

The girl who messaged me hasn’t been online since. The tension, maaaaan


#874

Had an absolutely sensational date off of okc this weekend, thanks for asking. We made out in the park from 2 till 11pm.

Just found Marie le Conte of twitter fame on it, lol. Quite a lot of young journalists actually go on there tbf (think quite a lot of journalists fuck around as well, c.f. ******* ********)


#875

Actually sent a message to someone based on a music reference on their profile, their second reply ended with a full stop which I took as a sign to not keep the conversation going


#876

Why?


#877

I don’t know, just think short messages with a full stop in informal message context is a bad sign, and my greatest fear is to be considered overfamiliar.


#878

Or… it could be a sign they construct sentences properly?


#879

Ah but their previous message had no fullstop


#880

Oh ffs seriously?


#881

Even the best sentence constructors sometimes slip up. Especially when in the midst of blossoming love.
