There are Plenty of Fish in the Sea

The online dating community exists to create harmonious matches that will hopefully lead to marriage. This has not been my experience. However, it has been a great source of amusement and entertainment for me. So today I am sharing with you some of the gems I have received recently. Also, revisit this gem from my past for a good laugh.
  • good eving how are you my names trony im 27 about to be 28 never married or had abny kids im intersted in getting to know more about you and starting from friends i like the out doors things like that playing pool i work fulltime as wrecker driver in n austin i love my job helping people in trouble any how if yopu would like to talk drop me aline

I am so glad that trony decided to get in touch with me and show me not only his inability to spell but also to form a sentence and use punctuation.

  • So supposedly, whatever criteria go into matching people up on this site thinks that I like ugly I'm going through all these pics of uglies and I see your pic. I'm like...hey, she's not ugly, she couldn't possible be...(dramatic pause) A MATCH! I don't know what they mean by "a match," but I thought it might be worth checking out...after all, we're on plenty of fish for a reason, right?

I guess I am supposed to be flattered that he doesn't think I am ugly but I am still not exactly sure what I make of his email. I mean seriously why would you say all this. It's unnecessary.

  • So you are a Crimson Tide..does that mean we gonna be fighting coz im a die hard longhorn.

First off, I am not going to fight with you for rooting for another football team unless it is Auburn or Tennessee. Secondly, we are adults. Can we talk like it and refrain from using juvenile language?

  • hollarrrrr
    hey hey
    at my cousins house and living with aunt and uncle until.....
    just moved here last sat. i'm having a blast and I love everything..
    here in austin
    my profile from the lake home is still real until, i sell it.
    lets get in touch, if you're fun or funny...if not, i promise to make you laugh!

This email was written by a 40 year old man. I don't think I need to say anymore than that.

Oh Sweet Lord, those are funny! Do people not own spell check, or do they think it just doesn't apply to them?

Oh honey - I'm so sorry. I know there have to be some sensible, fun, caring, cute, and smart men out there. Or at least just the one for you. You'll find him - but apparently, you just have to wade through the goldfish first.
