So, I'm still on Lavalife. Why? I have no idea, as I have not been contacted by anyone of interest for many a week (give or take a month or two) now. And neither have I actually seen anyone that I would like to contact. It works great, because I am too lazy right now to actually go out on a date and make any such effort.
Anyway... I'm still on. I still check almost everyday... It really is like crack cocaine on many levels...
Oh my god... did someone smile at me? no one smiled at me... my life is over... oh my god, someone just smiled at me... and he's cute... oh my god, oh my god, OH MY GAWD...
Completely retarded but there you have it. Even at the peak of my Lavappeal, I never really liked to spend oodles of time on the site. With that in mind, almost as soon as I went back on after the PNB-Gate, I changed my profile to say NO INSTANT MESSAGES. Nice and explicit. One of my profiles politely asks "no IMs pretty, pretty please". Again, explicit.
So this morning... I check after a few day absence. Lo and behold I have an Instant Message. An instant message from a guy saying "Hey, I really liked your profile". I find this interestingly interesting because, if he said he liked my profile then logic should dictate that he had actually read my profile. AND, if he had actually read my profile, he would have seen that I didn't want to be messaged. AND, just to make the whole thing even more exasperating, it was an IM from a guy who I had already been contacted by several months ago who just kind of *poof* disappeared. No tears shed on that front... it just reinforces, sigh, that I don't get guys.
And just when you thought this story was over, today I have had no less that 3 other IMs from lavaboys:
"Hi" (says Bob who has tried to contact me on half a dozen occasions with nary a response)
"Great Profile. Can I see your backstage" (says the 48 years old with NO pictures at all)
"How was your weekend?" (says the guy who mentions the word "fit" nad about 8, 000 times in his one paragraph profile)
Since when does NO not mean no? Where have all the guys who read gone? Anyone? Bueller? Echo...
