When I logged into my Match.com inbox today, I immediately knew what to blog about. Here is the message I woke up to:
Message: “hello how are u i like your pics lol nice”
Now, I know that I can sometimes be overly critical of these match.com-ers…but COME ON! Where do I even begin here?
1. We ALL know how I feel about bad grammar, but this guy’s disregard for punctuation, capitalization, and general linguistic structure blows me away.
2. “LOL?” What are you laughing at? My pictures? Is that a compliment? I don’t understand.
3. Nice? You’re nice? I’m nice? Who’s nice? WHAT is nice? Certainly not your haphazard attempt at a pick-up line.
It’s not easy to render me speechless but I think this email nearly leaves me at a loss for words.
As opposed to ignoring the message altogether, I’d like to take suggestions on how to respond! Comment on the blog with your ideas; I’ll choose one of your suggested responses and post the winning reply on Friday’s blog.
…This should be fun.
