More IM Conversation fun

Let me preface this is saying that I don't tell all men that I Instant Message with that I'm not interested in a relationship up front. Generally I only do this when it's obvious that the person is a. lying b. someone I'm not interested in for some reason or c. I'm just cranky after other pointless conversations. So don't say "Well, you tell them this right up front so how can you expect to meet anyone?" If they are actually from around here or strike up a somewhat intelligent conversation, I see where the conversation goes. I'm certainly still skeptical about meeting someone from online, but since I don't get out much, I might give it a chance if someone seems remotely interesting, truthful and interested.

annabel_lee_tx (9/6/2006 10:18:18 PM): sorry... it's my opinion again.. but most people with a high school education that are born here have better grammar skills.
annabel_lee_tx (9/6/2006 10:18:30 PM): I'm not saying it to be mean... it's simply the truth in my book.

sklein_calvin (9/6/2006 10:42:42 PM): ok

Notice that he still couldn't spell Santa Barbara correctly. I would think that one would at least be able to spell their birthplace correctly, unless they're from Poughkeepsie. (And yes, I had to look that one up to spell it correctly. Here's another one for your enjoyment.

Holy Cow. Do you get these IMs on Yahoo? Is it from a profile on Yahoo? I had two very good friends meet someone through EHarmony and both of them are married now and extremely happy. Have you given any thought to that?

Annabel said...

Yes, they're from yahoo. I've joined Eharmony, Yahoo personals, and Catholicmatch.com. Eharmony is quite expensive and I got very few "connections" with people in this area and the few that I was connected with didn't go anywhere. (I did meet the guy from Michagan because of eharmony, but the distance was a probablem and Marty came into the picture.)
Yahoo personals is full of the same types that come from the IM messages and the few decent guys on there won't give me the time of day. Catholic match is very limiting with people in this area. I only had about 3 conversations initiated through the Catholic service and none were from this area. I have my profile on match.com right now but haven't paid for it (can't afford it and am just seeing if anything interesting pops up). I'm still skeptical, but thought I'd give it a last shot.

(laughs and laughs) those are hilarious. They are Nigerian scammers. They are desperate for you to become their "online American girlfriend" so that you can accept their shipments from companies, which they have paid for using stolen or fake credit cards. They want to ship the packages to you so that you can then forward them to Lagos, because noone will ship to Nigeria anymore. At work we have them all the time calling the businesses through Sprint IP Relay, and then they call their "girlfriends" at like 4 o clock in the morning to see if they've got the packages and stuff. They aren't real people...they're characters. Ask for a name sometime and they'll say something like "bob tom."

Summer said...

GAWD Susan, who would have thought? BobTom. That's so discouraging and disgusting!

Hey now... I was born in Poughkeepsie! Only took until I was 9 to spell it.

I giggled at the second one. I see a tall, dark, hairy man. With a love of gold chains and polyester track suits...EEEEEYYYYOOOOuuuu! Plus he wear plastic sandals with socks...you DO NOT want to know what his feet look like.
When I joined eharmony all the guys were nice Scottish lads. While I LOVE a good looking man in a kilt, it made it a tad inconvenent(sp?)...*giggle* "Bob Tom"
