Hello and happy Saturday. Let’s get down to business and continue with the weird messages I’ve gotten on Ok Cupid.
“Hi how are you there. Good to see your profile there. Nice to meet you. Let be friends What’s up there”
Yes, this is just one message, but to me it feels lie this person either had a problem with their copy/paste features or there are actually more people involved and they were all typing at the same time and then someone accidentally hit “send.” No, but really, English is clearly not this person’s first language and on top of that they were probably nervous as to what to write. It’s always kinda awkward to get “let’s be friends” messages, and I can’t help but go back to my kindergarten years.
“You’re very beautiful”
This one is just like the “I like you” message from yesterday. Thank you, I really appreciate you telling me this, but I would like to have real conversations, not be complimented by strangers right off the bat, you know? I think it’s okay to squeeze in a compliment when you’re messaging someone for the first time, but you have to add something else to said message, something the recipient can work with in order to start a conversation with you.
“I wish all the best to you”
This message is sweet, I’m not going to deny it. But it sounds more like the kind of thing you’d tell someone you’re breaking up with instead of what you’re telling a stranger you’d like to get to know better. When I get messages like this, I know the person’s first language is not English because there are expressions that can’t be translated literally or that when translated, lose their original meaning. This might be a way to greet another person, but I don’t know how to respond to that other than saying “thanks, same.”
“I would love u but never mess with U ever”
I got this when I was at work and I seriously laughed out loud because I think many people agree with this person. I’ve been told several times that I am intimidating, which I totally take as a compliment, so you better not mess with me. I’ll probably use this quote as my header from now on so that people know what they’re getting into with me.
“Hello how you doing, Your picture has that sense of calmness, it is beautiful”
Now, this message is the sort that people send to many different users to see who actually takes the bait and actually falls for the cheesy pickup line. I say this because in my picture I’m wearing a strapless bikini (so I’m showing off some skin in addition to one of my tattoos) and I’m kinda smiling kinda not. It’s not peaceful, it’s a selfie that conveys nothing other than I think I’m hot and I want to meet strangers online. Nice, try though.
Now, for this last message I’m not going to say anything, but I want you to tell me what you think in the comments below.
“Hey girl, i’m from Andromeda Galaxy and i’m looking for girl from Milky Way galaxy, only beautiful women can see my message and I am here to hack your heart haha ;)”
Love, Miss Camila
