This stuff cracks me up!

If it wasn’t so hilarious, it might even qualify as pathetic. Talking about Blog comments… a certain kind of blog comments, to be exact. The comments made by the “hopefuls” in lustful pursuit of those brilliant ladies who occasionally post a “nasty” story, or thought, of collection of thoughts.

And to you my Lady Friends, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about, right? I reckon guys have finally figured it out that the email approach is too frustrating, too crowded, and just plain doesn’t work very well.

(“Well gosh and golly-gee,” Gomer might confide to Fred over beers some night. “I changed my profile to match what she’s looking for and she still won’t reply. Bitch!”

Am I right? Or am I right!

So, what do they do…

(“Listen, Pal,” Fred says, tapping the bar for another round. “Try the blogs. There’s all kinds of hot babes over there just begging for dick!”

Yup. And there you go again, trying to be polite with your replies, but really starting to get annoyed that these guys just don’t get it.

Get what? The stories, the erotic tales of adventure, the “nasty” thoughts… it’s literature. Lots of great literature, but nonetheless, literature pure and simple. And even though some choose to write in the second-person (which isn’t so easy as it sounds when you read it because the writer has to somehow become two different people to know what “you“ are thinking as the story unfolds), the stories etc. really AREN’T invitations or even prick-teasing. They are merely expressions of thoughts or fantasies, either to vent or inform or to entertain. It’s a diary, for chrissakes, not a full-page ad in the Post-Gazette.

But still, the hopefuls persist:

“Hey let’s chat! I got what you need.” (even though she never mentioned that she needed anything)

“Wanna fuck?” (well, guys… you can save a lot of money on Tums and Rolaids if you’d just think about that for a second: if she really wanted to fuck you, she would have sent you an email, right? So, unless she asks if you want to fuck, assume that she doesn’t.)

“You are so hot! I can make you even hotter!” (Uh-uh. Really. *yawn* )

And of course, they just have to throw in the
Different smileys and other ones.

Now granted, there are LOTS of decent and respectful men who drop comments in the more “frisky” posts, but unfortunately, our “applause for good writing” tends to get lost in the other guys’ smutful, hopeful, practically-begging-for attention remarks when the frustrated and annoyed author clicks out of it and goes on to the next round of bullshit, hoping to see a change of scenery.

(“Hey Fred!” Gomer says to his buddy a week later while they wait for the bus. “I did what you said… you know, about the blogs! And I told that one to contact me and she’s still ignoring me. Bitch!”

Anyway… I enjoy a good read like anyone else, but if I don’t leave a comment in one of your “frisky” posts, please believe that it’s not because I didn’t like it. I’m just not going to compete for attention, or try to impress you by hoping to say something more clever than someone else, or plant my ad to “view my blog” in the hopes of boosting my own comment count. And besides, when I read those kinds of posts, I know that they aren’t being written by women whom the hopefuls think are “easy.” And I know that the women writing them know that they themselves aren’t what the hopefuls think they are (or want them to be), and that’s really all that matters, right?

Thank you! I have noticed that the number of "pick up lines" in the comments has picked up lately. Some are even putting their phone numbers in the comments lmao!

BTW: I do notice the non smutty comments that are left on my blog, you always encourage me to do my best. I thank you for that

yes, have def seen alot of those myself. its sad really, and they never get a serious response. most people blog to fucking blog. to write, be heard, be silly, whatever. and if you meet someone you are interested in, great. but its no meat market. its a strange but comforting society in its own way. and as you have probably noticed, the pick up line people vanish as fast as they appear.

Caress... Thanks for your support! Saw your latest, by the way... a test perhaps of this particular theory?

Tiller... I'm flattered! Really! (I think you're swell, too!) And, yeah, I saw your paradoy... but didn't comment for "personal reasons", if you know what I mean, thinking that I'm the one who got slam-dunked in her "reply" blog.

Dasher!!! Welcome back! It's nice to know that I'm not the only guy around here who thinks that way! Not get busy and start writing for us!
