“Sees me at least once a week.”
At some point, you’ll totally end up going out of town for a few days and he’ll be blowing up your phone every five seconds wondering where you are, and if you really cared about him, you’d be making the effort to narrate your life via text message–but not because he’s asking you to. For the joy of it.
Is this a new thing guys do on dating websites? This is not the only message (or sequence of messages) I’ve gotten like this:
I cannot judge the accidental duplicate message. I have come within a hair’s breadth of doing that myself. But this weird intentional hanging-a-lantern-on-the-fact-that-I-clearly-haven’t-replied messaging is perplexing. Does this work for some guys?
The thing is, messages like this all started around the same time a few months ago. So my best guess is that some kind of Cosmo for Dudes offered this as way to follow up and totally not seem at all desperate or annoyingly persistent.
My advice? Send messages on OkCupid the way NASA transmits radio frequencies into space looking for extraterrestrial life.
Actually, no that’s terrible advice. Because I think there’s some signal that goes into deep space constantly. Sometimes they send music out there. Just grasping around in the darkness of space. Ever-searching.
Okay, so do the OPPOSITE of the way NASA transmits radio frequencies into space. This is probably why we’ve never made contact. Human nature is very off-putting.
