I am not an escort service. I don’t set my friends up with guys who messaged me online. Who asks this?
I had a real bad date asking me this type of thing once. -_-
"Then just ignore the message" is one of those statements that seriously rubs me the wrong way - obvious, right?
1. Don’t tell me what to do. This is soooo condescending, and a totally inappropriate response to politeness, especially when I really didn’t even feel like being polite in the face of his total disrespect and violation of my wishes.
2. I don’t know if you’re going to harass me and send me message after message if I “just ignore” you and then pitch a whiny little baby-fit about how I could at least let you know I’m not interested, or if you’re going to do the exact opposite and get all bent out of shape about how I should just ignore you. I can’t fucking win either way.
3. I’m not really compelled to either ignore or be polite to someone who doesn’t fit my “Looking For” requirements and who sent me a message that only says “hey” when I have said in multiple places in my profile NOT to send me a message if you don’t fit this criteria, and if you do anyway, you won’t receive a favorable response. And when the first line of my profile states to read my entire profile before messaging me. But, hey, I was polite to this guy, and I’m rewarded with “what does that mean?” and the equivalent of “how dare you try to be polite instead of ignoring me”. So, yes, that rubs me the wrong way.
4. Although his first message wasn’t abusive, telling ANYONE to ignore a treatment of them that disrespects them implies consent of that treatment, which has major implications for abuse and how other people think they can treat you. So, I’m going to stand up for myself and call people out when they treat me in an unacceptable manner. Sorry, not sorry.
Also, this dude believes that the Earth is bigger than the sun. Just saying.
what the fuck this turtle has like no games on it
Lillian Weber, a 99-year-old good Samaritan from Iowa, has spent the last few years sewing a dress a day for the Little Dresses For Africa charity, a Christian organization that distributes dresses to children in need in Africa and elsewhere.
Weber’s goal is to make 1,000 dresses by the time she turns 100 on May 6th. So far, she’s made more than 840. Though she says she could make two a day, she only makes one – but each single dress she makes per day is personalized with careful stitchwork. She hopes that each little girl who receives her dress can take pride in her new garment.

i tried to be polite. i tried to send him the message that i wasn’t interested. i actually turned him down in my very first message, but he kept going. i kept pushing him away. he kept trying.
honestly, i know i should have just stopped responding - but i felt like i needed him to understand why HE needed to be the one to stop first. he didn’t get it. he didn’t get why this made me uncomfortable.
please, male individuals who follow me - at the first hint that she’s not into you, stop it. his hint should have come before he messaged me, as there’s several places on my profile where i say i’m not interested in men, let alone men his age.
why are you even on this site
OkCupid being passive aggressive
"OkCupid is ad-supported, so give us money." Ha, I get what they’re saying but it was kinda dumb to word it that way.
