Oh you reminded me about a guy I "talked" with a couple of weeks ago on a dating site. I really don't know if it was because of shyness or be decided he wasn't interested or he was just socially awkward. But it was odd.

The conversation went as follows:

Him: hi
Me: hey, how are you tonight?

****Radio silence until sometime the next morning***

Him: I'm tired. I'll send you a proper message tonight.
Me: OK. Talk to you then.

***Later that night***

Him: texting is much easier than messaging. Do you mind if we text?

Me (thinking to myself): buddy, there is no way in hell.

But the next day I mentioned it to someone who told me to give him my number. So I thought, "fine... I'll try it.." And sent him my number.

The next day we had our first text conversation:

Him: how are you this morning?
Me: I'm great! How are you?
Him: I'm tired. (He was just getting off work at the time)
Me: sorry to hear that. What do you do?
Him: paramedic.
Me: ohh neat! Sounds like interesting work. How long have you done that?
He gives me a precise number down to the day.
Me: wow that's a long time.

Aaaand I never heard from him again.

Moral of the story? I will never again give out my number to someone who hasn't demonstrated adequate conversational skills.: D

Amen, Toro. Couldn't have said it better.

And I had a similar thing happen to me, LT. I managed to have a text conversation with one guy and he basically accused me of being a catfish by asking me why a "pretty girl like you is on a dating site". He then proceeded to say that he was going to give me a call to see if I was "the same person as in the pictures." And I never heard from him, but saw where he had looked at my profile that day.

Just as well. Dude seemed a bit insecure anyway.
I deserve the best, and the best is you.

Social skills are a rare and precious thing, it seems :D

I notice you didn't put anything in there about not texting with stalkers. ;)

Wait are you the one who keeps texting with weird and random pickup lines?

Nope, I don't need to use pick up lines on you. You already are deeply in love with me. I know and you know it too, you just fight it. You are just afraid of giving birth to a bull baby cause of the horns, but we aren't born with thems they grow out after. :P
