I don’t often get emails sent to my blog email, and when I do they are either asking a blogging question, asking for me to participate in something, or just telling me something they didn’t want to share over my blog. 99.9 % of the time they are just short, sweet and to the point….
I did get a fun one a few months back…
So this guy emails me. The first email was a continuation of whatever it was that appeared on my blog that day. I figured that as this guy (I assume) was a new reader, he wasn’t comfortable discussing in the open forum. Whatever. It was a nice email and I replied back…
Insert crossed eye emoji’s right here…
So the guy emailed my back and actually said:
“I wish I hadn’t spent so much time working on my awesome body, and had spent more time learning things so I could converse with someone like you.”
Is this guy trying to hit on me and get me to send him suggestive emails?
Is this guy using this as like some form of longform tinder?
I deleted the email.
Now, I’ve gotten a good laugh about this, and a blog post, but I must ask:
Do people look at any form of social media as a way to begin, let’s just say…intimate relationships with people?
Are there people who find this sort of behavior attractive?
I’ve told you about the various conversations that people have attempted to have with me via insta…at least a few times a week I get a message from someone wanting to chat me up…
Is the way of the world now? Do people just want to have cyber sex with people? And if that’s the case…how do I get off that list? Does the randomness of internet dalliances with people you don’t know are actually the people you think they are really fulfill ones needs?
Can we go back to meeting people, finding out about them, and then begin relationships?
What do we think about the social media pick up?
