You can’t judge an apple by looking at the tree,
You can’t judge honey by looking at the bee,
You can’t judge a daughter by looking at the mother,
You can’t judge a book by looking at the cover.
Oh can’t you see,
Oh, well, you misjudge me.
I look like a farmer,
But I’m a lover
I mentioned in an earlier post that I had two losers from Plenty of Fish dish out their dysfunctional crap on me this weekend. This guy wins second place for the week.
I start with an easy intro message:
I enjoyed reading your profile. Please check out mine, and if you are interested, please send me a message. We live reasonably close to one another.
So here comes Reject Rex:
Thanks for the kind words and interest. We seem to share similar ideas. Particularly the part about enjoying a “frosty beverage” (loooove fruity drinks!!), and preferring not to sit across from each other on a first meet only to then engage in mindless trivial conversation simply to avoid silence.
Although we think along the same lines, I think our lifestyles do not run parallel. What I am really looking for is someone athletic who lives the same healthy lifestyle I choose to live, and has made exercising a daily part of her everyday routine. Of course, it would be important that she participate in the same physical activities that I do: swim, bike, run, yoga, weight training…. Compatibility is at the top of my list of what is needed to maintain a long term relationship.
Really? Seriously – how the heck does he know anything about me to make those statements? So being in a pissy mood, I fire back:
Thanks for the response. I would suggest that you might want to ask a few more questions before making assumptions about someone’s lifestyle. I’ll be on a 6-mile hike in XXX tomorrow and try to hit the gym 5 days a week for cardio kick boxing and other classes. Yes, I am a work in progress, but aren’t we all? Best of luck in your search.
Then he gets in the last word:
Should be a beautiful day for a walk in the Park. Enjoy….
I need to stop being so nice and really put my bitch hat on, but I doubt it’s worth the energy or time.
