The Attention Whore
The Attention Whore
Here's something that I wanted to hear back about:
A while back I ran across this profile [can't remember the name] that really annoyed me. She went on and on and on about how fabulous she was, which is cool, then continues with how everyone she meets says to her "Why is the most perfect woman ever created doing slumming on this tawdry site?" [paraphrasing a little ]
She finishes with something like "I've decided that I'm too good for this site. I'm this and this and this and a site like this is beneath a woman of my obvious superiority, and I'll be turning my profile off." Well, of course I wrote her, and politely took her to task on it. I said it's great that you have confidence in yourself, but to have a profile on here, THEN to meet people from here, THEN to disparage the site and by extension anyone else on here, is really kinda silly. Surprisingly, she didn't like it, and furthermore, she wasn't as intelligent as she said she was, and wasn't even close to charming. Here's the kicker...I checked back a few weeks after our discussion, and wouldn't you know, that profile was still active and recently visited. Things that make ya go Hmm.
That wasn't the first nor the last profile I've seen like that, women who have to make themselves somehow above the site that they visit everyday, and have to insult the people that they are begging to hear from on the site that they voluntarily signed up for and visit daily.
I don't read men's profiles...is this the same over there?
And what is it with women who think they're too good to be on a site where you can meet people? To me, this site is not much different than a "normal" dating site...yeah you got the nudie pics and the just-fuck-me profiles, but you can obviously meet people that want relationships and friendships, not just drive-by fucks.

Aw, Tedz!!! You PROMISED that you wouldn't write about me on your blog!!!|
It takes all kinds, though. She sounds like she wants the attention she is getting from her negativity, otherwise if she really felt that way, she would just turn off her profile / end her membership and say nothing.

Is there a different site to sign up JUST for the drive-by-fucks? Send me the link.. please? LOL|
Ok... I"m joking (jus a lil' bit)... but yeah, I know what you mean. I don't get a lot of mail from men where the profiles read like you are saying.. BUT, I do get mail that is worded in such a manner as stuff like... " I don't have any pictures posted cause I'm a really REALLY important person, but you won't be disapointed"...
Ok.. first... I'm a really... REALLY important person too.. LMAO.. but if anyone can pick me out based on the pictures I have posted.. then BY DAMNED they ARE GOOD!!!... But that is besides the point..
Time and time again.. the 'type' of people that are so sure that I "won't be disapointed".. think way too much of themselves.
I NEVER tell people they won't be disapointed. What I do tell them is, I'm not ugly... if you like what I"ve got.. then you will LOVE ME. That basically refers to the entire package. If you like a smart, witty, sexy, funny, and passionate... you will love me. Notice NOT a lot of reference to physical attributes.
On another site, I describe my self as tall with curves (and stretch marks) in all the right places. I mention that I have sparkinling green eyes and a dazzling smile with my teeth in all the places that God (and the orthodontist) intended.
Basically I'm not perfect physically.... in fact far from it. But if you like what I have to offer, you will love me.
But I shy away from those who tend to tell me I won't be disapointed... mainly cause.. they dont' know if maybe I'm expecting The Rock... then I might be VERY disapointed if they look like Brad Pitt instead.. ya know??
I'm just sayin'...
Let me say this Tedzilla... I wish your tall lanky ass was closer to Oklahoma.. cause I KNOW I won't be disapointed in you..
Waves at JEZZIE... Hi girl!!!
