This shocked me, seeing as how my ad, while witty, was highly specific and in some cases a bit snarky. I soon dropped everything else I had been doing and proceeded to sort my way through the weeds of scruffy men that I had requested.
I sifted through profiles that:
- detailed height, weight, build, as well as stereotypes to which I was turned off of (running, weightlifting, beer pong)
- apologized for their lack of scruffiness, but promised they made up for it in their knowledge of music and/or poetry
- confessed this was the first time they'd been to said dating site and apologized if they said too much/not enough (I got seven of these, no lie)
- seemed to be copy and pasted from several emails to several different profiles/ads. These amused me to no end because they had nothing to do with what I was asking for, until the last few lines said in "P.S." form. Come on guys...
The two I've set my sights on right now, I have decided not to talk about yet. I happen to believe that when you speak about something that you hope to happen, it won't. Call me crazy, but at least I'm not jumping to conclusions.
