Friday Follies #20 – a bunch of mistakes that make me go “Arghhh”!

Further to my December 21st post on dating for the age-impaired, I thought I would point out some of the little gaffes that abound in the profiles I’ve been scanning lately. (Hope springs eternal!) These are direct quotes, copied and pasted – followed of course by my snarky comments in brackets.

  • Iwant to be in love with someone who loves me [Lack of a space and a period means it won’t be me.]
  • nature,biking,walking,an cuddling with my lover,wife [Apparently there is a widespread rash of broken spacebars. The missing d on and doesn’t help matters.]
  • looking for the right woman who also want to spend the rest of her life with someone she can thrust, love, and share [The missing s on wants pales in comparison with the promised thrusting.]
  • I love to make fast business decissions that lead to sucsess. [I’m reddy to hirre him. Yew?]
  • I worked at Canadare. [If he did, wouldn’t he know it was actually spelled Canadair?]
  • Simple and wanting too please [Too simple to please me, though.]
  • Attractive, active, fun,educated,wise, athletic,love laughter,sports [If you’re truly educated wouldn’t you care enough to fix your spacebar?]

Now you might think I’m being harsh, or, at best, picky, but I tell you, folks, the cumulative effect of reading these profiles one after the other, in all their error-ridden glory is rather less than enticing. It almost makes me want to respond to the hundreds of men who don’t even write anything in their profile description, and in the heading simply put: “Hi…”  Of course, who knows what ills such a brief salutation is hiding. Yes – they’re damned if they do, and damned if they don’t. Maybe now you understand why I’m still without a partner. 😉
