Messenger of Death

So I find myself sick, slightly grumpy and smelling like a bandaid as I'm in the process of sweating out a fever. TMI? at this point in my sickness I don't give a damn. I've been putting off seeing a doctor because without medical insurance it will cost me an arm, a leg and most likely my left eye. All of which I've grown fond of. unfortunately I've given up the battle and am going this evening.

So on OKcupid I have been having a lil bit of fun here and there, talkin to the natives, getting to know the program and just playing the game. I'm not really a game player so I'm pretty much just sittin on the bench watching the pros kick the loveball around.

Until I got my first unknown IM. WTFudgecakes? I appreciate the IM system but on other sites there is an approval you have to go through before accepting someone's instant message. Sooo why here does it just pop up at the bottom of my screen.. some weird creepy dude asking me what color socks i'm wearing (no joke!)? Of course I answered "I'm not wearing socks big boy..."

I especially like the ones who tell me that they are in love with me and want to meet me and spend their lives with me.. in one short paragraph. AND THEN! view my profile. REALLY!?!?!

*insert incredulous stare here*

"I know you need a friend just like me" - he says in broken english

"The wisest man admits he knows nothing" - i reply in the hopes of confusing the crap outta him.

"I know. I read your profile allrady" -he states. what the hell is allrady?

this ones a wiley one. he's gonna be tough to get rid of. like an unknown rash after a really hardcore party night. I can only do one last thing. BLOCK. I hate using this function. I know it's a part of the process of the dating world, but I still feel its like burning a rickety old bridge. Lets face it, would Indiana Jones do it??

This is how I make my hardest decisions. :p

So Dear OkCupid

Why the hell would you allow people to IM each other without any kind of filter in any way shape or form? What kind of crazy cracked out security do you have on this totally free ... wait... nevermind. :p


I got what I paid for.
