    2 messages in and the guy is already writing me essays (like 15-20 sentences at a time) The strange part is he is pretty good looking, and doesn't need to "compensate". How people have time for this, especially considering the number of prospects out there? Do you do this?

    I just replied "lol u write a lot, let's chat in person sometime, here's my number"

    Touch typist ... might be a programer. I've seen people put out 4 or 5 sentences in the time it takes my to type 1.

    I usually just scan large amounts of text and if it seems like it might be interesting then I'll read it otherwise the scan is enough and I move on the the next comment

    Yeah, I generally skip wall-of-text first posts. It's always about crushes on a straight friend anyways. icon_lol.gif

    A short note is a "wall of text? This, from people who post videos and expect someone to sit there for ten minutes, just to see if there is a point to it, that might be expressed in two seconds of writing?

    So you were expecting "top, bottom or vers?", but this guy actually wants a proper conversation and to exchange some background.

    Dun, dun, dunnn

    So many things wrong with this posting! Let's start with the number of sentences: 15 - 20? Is that more than you're use to reading? The art of communications generally revolves around more than 'wus up'. Perhaps the guy has an interest (which I'm sure is gone after your reply) and wishes to express himself. I know, so 1990s. There's a lot to learn about communications.

    Not sure where 'pretty good looking' equates to 'writing me essays'. Does this mean that only ugly people should be explicit in their conversations because you don't really care about reading anything from a cute guy? Seems a bit shallow.

    'especially considering the number of prospects out there'. Seems that someone has different intentions than the guy who wrote you the essay. This isn't a hookup site so perhaps the guy was looking beyond some possibility of jumping into the sack and instead was considering actually getting to know you. I'd say he needs to find a cleaner pond to fish in, this one seems way too mirky!

    He is either a good catch or a rambling nutter. I suggest you meet him ASAP to find out which is true.

    Typing is so 20th century. Animated gifs are the future.

    Depends on how cute he is and what he writes. icon_smile.gif If he comes off as a weirdo, then no, no reply.

    +1.

    One of my favorite compliments I've ever received from a guy was that I actually listen to people; I give people my undivided attention.

    So yes, I do this; I'm quite the opposite. If there is someone that I'm interested in, I take the time to read their profile and make references to what I liked and exactly interests are in them; what exactly made them stand out amongst the number of other "prospects" out there. It's part of showing that I have comprehension beyond the superficial. I generally don't reply to messages on dating websites that only amount to thoughtless small talk or messages that look like they were written by a third grader.

    I like articulate conversationalists, maybe it's just me. Try grindr if you would prefer mindless small talk and quick number exchanges.

    This. The content of those "15-20 sentences at a time" also matters, though to put that much effort into an opener is odd, whereas it would be less odd IMO a dozen more messages in.

    Whoa presumptuous much? I already write more than most, but have yet to see a profile on any dating site that has enough material to inspire a 500+ word pick-up line lolol.

    I said I thought his muffin shirt was funny. His reply touched on his appreciation of fun shirts, his appreciation of people who appreciate fun shirts, the efforts he goes to coordinate them... oh, and he just baked a batch of muffins, they taste very good... you get the idea lol.
