I know people say it’s polite to give someone a ‘thanks but no thanks’ if they message you on a dating website and you’re not interested. And I agree to a point. If someone’s put effort into their opening message and they’ve genuinelytried, then ignoring them seems a bit callous. But when I get pages and pages of messages that just say ”hey bby how r u? wna meet up sxc’ then it stands that quite a few messages just get read, and ignored. Sometimes, the people who I’ve ignored send a couple more messages and then give up. However, very occasionally I find someone who just doesn’t get the hint. This is my inbox bombarder – he’s been going a month strong now. Each new line is a new message (yes even the ones that don’t make sense on their own as a message, and even the ones that just say one word) and my few replies are in bold:
Hi, I’m Mr. Right. Someone said you were looking for me.
Does that work often? :/
nooo got loads ofothers… hang on
Do you believe in love at first sight … or should I walk past again?
That doesn’t work on a dating website, sadly.
I lost my phone number, can I borrow yours?
Have you got a plaster? Because I hurt my knee falling for you.
Excuse me, do you mind if I stare at you for a minute? I want to remember your face for my dreams.

good evening young lady

I understand you are not who you say you are and in fact a male 58 yo trying to attract young females? That is what is on the forums
Bear in mind that all of this has gone on over the space of a month. That’s just about 1 message a day. I guess, if I was ever short of a cheesey chat up line or two, I could go to this guy for some help. But someone help me out here – why are guys like this so persistent in the face of blatant disinterest? Of course, feel free to point out the obvious that I could block him at any time. I would have done if it wasn’t for the fact I was keeping this blog in mind. Honestly! :)
I’m also curious to hear how many of you reply to every message you get and what your ‘thanks but no thanks’ messages are like.
