My online conversational style..

I'm a smiley addict.

I fully admit to abusing the various happy faces that the chat interface allows. It does get on some people's nerves but that's pretty much something they need to accept from me to tell me to go away.

And telling me to go away isn't a bad thing, I've never felt that someone telling me they didn't feel we were a good match was insulting or an indication something was wrong. I actually take the words at face value and go on about my business.

Now that being said, when I IM someone with a little profile advice (It doesn't happen often because, you know, coming off as paternal and correcting things just doesn't go very far.) I really don't expect that conversation is going to lead to getting acquainted and some hot shared times.

On the other hand I really don't tend to expect a response of "You might want to fuck off" either. I'm not sure why my suggesting a change to your profile warrants a defense of "I get laid off here every night" but I'm guessing that means you think my suggestion somehow indicates a failure in your desirability so you need to tell me how very desirable you are.

This is just plain confusing to me.

And threatening to cut off the conversation if I send one more smiley *after* you've told me I might want to fuck off?

Now that's just not in the right order.. threaten then tell someone to hit the road. You do it in the other order and it just loses all effectiveness.

I think I may have become less of a smiley addict with the latest incarnation of AdultFriendFinder's Messenger. Version 2.1 seems to space things rather badly and smileys really mess up a conversation. I think it will take a while to break that habit.
