This email, from a man I've never had a conversation with before, is kind of like one of those dreams where you are in school again and it's the middle of the semester but you haven't been to class once yet so you have no idea where you are or what is going on.... But then you think, wait, did I even sign up for this class???

This is from the same person as my other post titled "If at first you don't succeed." His other email is dated 4 years previous. Some people never give up. At least he's trying I guess.... He really just seems like a manipulative person, don't you think?

This is a first email from this gentleman. A good effort really, and props on the kind compliment, but probably not the best conversation starters if you ask me. Especially since nothing on my profile mentions me having a chocolate addiction or anything. Not all women are obsessed with chocolate. It usually works better to ask about something mentioned on someone's personal description. Better luck next time.

He has good intentions perhaps, but a little much for a first email don't you think?
" So here's my new strategy on this site. It's not the greatest forum for actually getting a real view of what people are like, and everyone always dances around the important issues, hoping they can avoid enough of them until they're face to face. I'm not into that. So here's me, unvarnished. And here's why I think you wouldn't regret letting me take you out, and seeing where things went:
I'm a 37 year old divorced father of 4. That part has to come out first.
I'm a lawyer, practicing in partnership with my dad in [this city]. We have a great practice, doing mostly family and criminal law, that allows me to work, basically, as little or as much as I want. I make (yeah, I know, this is a little tacky, but let's face it, it's important) a base salary of 120k, but I usually average, after all is said and done, between 150 and 210k per year. Nothing incredible, but very comfortable, especially in [this city].
I live in a very large (6k sq. feet, 7 bedroom) retro (60's) house in a quiet university area.
I am in, candidly, excellent shape for a 37 year old guy. I run, play basketball, and lift, and it shows. Again, that probably sounds, maybe, a little cocky, but hey, it's important.
I have 4 kids, ages 14 (boy), 10 (girl), 7 (boy), and 3 (girl). they are awesome. They are obedient, good kids. they have adjusted well to my divorce, and I think they would be a joy to anyone I was with.
I have an ex-wife with whom I get along well who lives less than a mile away. We share custody of the kids on a week to week basis. I did nothing to cause the divorce, which is personal, but also something people usually want to know. She made choices that forced her out.
Overall, I think I'm a heck of a catch. I hope that comes off as confidence. I'm writing you this massive message because, candidly, you are about the most attractive person I found on this site, which is important, although not the most important thing to me, and because there's really no point in goofing around on here with flirts, etc. I know what I want, and I think most others do to.
Hope to hear back from you "

Is this a compliment or a test of my knowledge? I'm confused.
|Message:||It's really surprising that you are still single since you are so pulchritudinous.|
Why thank you.... And yet another person mentioning the fact that I'm still single. Thanks for pointing that out, I hadn't been aware the past 33 years. I've heard the word 'pulchritudinous' twice before in my life... Once in the first email from this person and then I remembered, once in a funny old Saturday Night Live sketch with Woody Harrelson where he was singing a song called "Pretty Lady" and using various different synonyms for the word pretty to describe a lovely lady he adored. The fact that I received 2 emails from this person using that same word makes me think I'm getting a copy and paste form sent to all the other girls. A good effort, really, and I do realize this was meant to be a compliment, but even other men I showed this to were confused by it. I wonder if pulchritudinous has dazzled any other women? I suppose I'll never know.

I don't know how many times I have been asked the question...."Why are you still single?" I'm sure many of my cohorts know what I'm talking about when I say this question gets old pretty fast! Over many, many years of dating we have been subjected to countless pickup lines and come-ons. Some of the most entertaining dating attempts have come from online dating websites. For you that can't quite grasp the concept of why someone (other than yourself) might possibly still be single, my friends and myself will give you a peek into some of the reasons that make us head for the hills when approached by certain men. Here we will post the most bizarre, funny, creepy, off-base, rude and annoying words we hear from men online and elsewhere. Read 'em, and weep... for humanity.
