Almost speechless.

Almost.

What the fuck? Is that a billboard for, "I want a green card and an American wife until I can retain some American citizenship" or what?

I will now invoke my Man-finding Powers in your name. However, don't you ever stop the online dating thing. My giggle might stop forever if you did that!

Lol @ BG. Come ON, Terry... you knew you were going to get at least a few of those scary I-barely-speak-English-and-I-probably-don't-have-a-job-but-you-aer-so-beuty-pls-I-want-to-meet-you emails! It's been nearly a year since I was on one of those sites and looking at that email still gave me the creeps!

I always figured if I just ignored them, then I wasn't being mean. But I think it's kinda ok to be rude and hash on dating sites.

I try and avoid webdating myself but every now and then.....

buddhagirl, it's pathetic, ain't it? and i got a good laugh out of it.

but trust me -- nearly all the responses i'll get will be like this and i will pull the plug again. i'm just not investing myself in the process as i have in the past.

jmai, aren't you glad you're not on these sites anymore??

savage, why didn't you say that was you?!

It's interesting that his English seems poor, yet he's well-versed in IM lingo/abbreviations! :)

Classic. That's all I can say. Classic.

yeah!

so you're gonna date him, right?

OMG--seriously?? You should try eharmony. It's way more controlled and will keep you from getting crap like that. When I'm ready to date again, I'm going to try it again. Just a thought.

Yet another reason to be thankful I'm married.

I love that he thinks he's humble.

nomadshan, that's an excellent observation. i hadn't even noticed that!

sassy, i know. it's just too... i don't know. perfect.

love monkey, yes, i'll be replying right away! i can't wait to meet this guy who has the highest interest in me.

blondie, i've thought about eharmony... but i have a really hard time with the fact that it was founded and run by christian fundmentalists who would surely deem me a heathen.

signgurl, give mr. sign an extra hug from me today!

hmmmm

my experience was much better

the service i used (cupid.com) had this set-up where you could limit your geographic availability and would turf people who were trying to hit on you from outside your region

of course, i'm male

i set up a female profile to check out my competition. and even though my female profile specifically said "I am just looking and don't want any contacts right now" i was still inundated (well, 12 contacts) in the first 2 days before i pulled the plug on the profile.

I heard the rumors about the Christian thing, but they didn't seem to care that I was a smoking, drinking, two-cat owning redhead. I think that puts me right up there with Satan, don't you? ;)
