More Fun with YIM

I just got an instant message from an older gentleman. I forgot to copy and paste what he said, so this isn't quite ver batum.

Old Guy: Hello there. That sure is a pretty pink dress. And a pretty girl.

That's it.

Does that sound creepy to anyone else?

Dont judge a book by its cover. Maybe he has poor social skills and cant quite muster up something like, "i read your profile and you're in luck! I'm a personal trainer who moonlights as a financial advisor. Shhhhhh, my day clients cant find out i'm smart or i'm sunk! Seriously though, you're a very attractive woman and i love that dress in your pic..."

I used to work with criminals, some of them have amazingly good social skills. You just never know what you're dealing with until you get to know someone better.

That said, i'd advise going with your gut. If it made you feel creeped out, pass that one, there are plenty of fish in the sea. Better to ere on the side of safety.

As an older guy, I will often send a very short email to a woman whose picture or profile has struck a chord in someway, even tho I know our profiles don't match.

While I usually put a little more than that in it, I do just give the compliment I intend to give and move on.

I don't see the point in putting a sales job on someone who isn't right for me or vice versa. Nor do I go thru all the "I'll fuck you good" bs.

And I get a lot of replies from women who say "thanks for making me smile" ...or "thanks for starting my day off right" ...

So not all women find them creepy... I've thought giving a woman a compliment without hitting on her was a good thing.

Just glad I hadn't sent one to you or I'd be the old guy you blogged about ... LOL

Hopefully your old guy meant his email in this light.

Well hell ... you'd think by now I'd have learned how to read ....

you plainly said it was an IM and I went straight to email ...

guess it might be time to break down and get those glasses.

sorry about the tangent ...

It's not so creepy to get the's the way it was worded. In my head, it sounded like he was talking to a 5 year old.
