Another Gem


There is this guy who has responded to both personal ads in the experiment on Craig’s List.  There were two e-mails this time and one last time. 

He actually might be the guy who for at least the past six months re-posts his ad every week.  See that guy’s ad here. The sad part is that the guy is fairly decent looking.  He doesn’t repulse AG. Or atleast the photo in the post looks decent.  What is going on there is beyond AG.  Either it’s his OCD or the photo is not him and well, most women don’t really want a man who looks like Ozzie O.

Whatever is the case, the three-time-e-mail-responder guy sent this little nugget today via email:

Your post sounds like the Boy Scout oath

    I’m not sure I could date a guy who says he enjoys “magical waltzes.”

    Now…if we were out one night and we magically started waltzing — that would be one thing. But, to say you’re into magical waltzes before hand…well, I’m not sure I could hang with that.

    I think that’s very reasonable BG. I also like that you know what you are unlikely able to stomach. This is key in dating.

    I am unlikely top stomach too many of these “let’s rip on defenseless losers” posts. It’s bad enought the dudes have to post on craigslist.

  4. Adorable Girlfriend Says:

    Oh, should we post are whining about our managers then?

    I’m really fascinated by this hideous world of straight personal ads. Gay ones may be skanky, but at least they’re straightforward. Less “magical waltzes” and curing your own meat, more stick it in. These Craig’s List ads are just painful to read. They’re not any LESS about sex, just fancied up with a lot of talk about wine and vivacious spirit, blah blah blah. Gay ads are like “looking for someone to fuck”, but these ads are more along the lines of “looking for someone to fuck, who will also do my dishes. And be perfect, and 19, and a virgin, even though I’m 40 and posting an ad on Craig’s List.”

    Res, the good Dr. UC and I cannot agree more. Though, UC just said and I quote, “The problem with gay men is they have no sense of romance.” And you know what, our UC and (PP) would know!

    They are painful, but they are funny how they try to get around “stick it in.”

    Blue girl -so you don’t dig the magical waltzes eh? What about tantalizing tango?

    Yeah, this dude seems well-rounded, but this is the curse of the online culture -we’re all cynical and think that if a guy says all the right things (minus the “magical waltzes” thing) then he must have something to hide. It could be true. Who knows? Anyway, it’s sad because sometimes people just have bad luck.

    I’ve never posted a Cragslist, but now if I do, I’ll be sure to do it up a la Res Publica without the whole list of idealist demands. Screw ambiguity, and me!

    I have a great sense of romance, I’m just not looking for it on the internet. Because, um, it’s not there. People place ads looking to get laid. Romance, to my mind, grows out of interpersonal chemistry, and you can’t really “profile” that in advance.

    Res P. nailed it like a 2000000psi nailgun

    internet(and newspaper) personal ads are for teh sex! anything else is just there to flatter your ego and attract the n00bs.

  11. Adorable Girlfriend Says:

    I totally agree Res. It was more about Dr. Straight (though he has his gay lover. Winking at you, Punkass) telling us what teh gays issues are.
