As I mentioned yesterday, I’m trying to branch out and be a bit unconventional in my dating choices. Yesterday I get a message from a guy in Connecticut, and although I’m generally against long distance relationships, I’m not jaded enough to end this experiment just yet.
So I look at Mr. Connecticut’s profile, and we’re at a 90% match, he’s wearing a suit, and he seems to be able to write in complete sentences. So far, so good. I respond, and we chit chat about where we grew up, divorce, and kids. He asks what I do for a living, and after responding, I ask him. And this is a direct quote…”I own a company that builds houses, roads, and company.” Now, I’ll admit that I had a glass of wine and was tired, so I figured I must’ve read it wrong, or maybe sentence structure wasn’t his strong point. I write back, “That sounds interesting. Tell me more about this company.” As I wait for his response, I’m thinking that he’s going to give me some sort of context clues I can use to piece together what his job entails. My phone beeps and I look at the message, which reads…”I don’t really have much to say about my company than we build houses, roads and company and I have like 20 staff working for me.”
I put the glass down, reread the message, and figured that surely I must be missing something, and made a note to not buy this brand of wine anymore. I figure I’ll ask him for a link to his website and I’ll figure this out on my own. And wouldn’t you know it, he tells me there’s a problem with the site and is trying to get it fixed.
Needless to say, I didn’t respond to any more of his messages, and I think I’m just going to have to charge this one to the game.
