Match.com Man Thinks I am Gorgeous!

Oh boy.

Here's the story.

I winked at this guy on match.com the other day mainly because there was a photo of him playing golf. Since I am a golfer, I thought, "Hey. At least we'll have one thing in common. Maybe there won't be romance but a golf buddy would be fun."

He writes back with this:

How are you doing today?I hope you had a good night rest.Thank you for the wink hope you get this mail and it finds you well.I was glancing through profiles and your gorgeous picture got me attracted and your lovely words had me write you..lol.I really was marveled reading your profile and enjoyed doing so.The first thing that came to my mind when I saw your picture was "WOW..you're drop dead GORGEOUS.LOL, so I thought i'Id take out time to introduce myself.

My name is _____ am very much single, available and searching stay alone here in New York ready to relocate any were in the world for my soul mate . . .

and so on . . .

I am a major stickler for grammar and punctuation. But, I decided to get past the errors and right back to him.

This is what I received in response:

"We're sorry, the profile you're looking for could not be found. Please try another profile."

Even Match.com has grammatical errors!

I hate this.

It appears this guy used his free Match.com trial and didn't pay for a membership. Really? Don't write me if you are just screwing around on the site. Don't call me "gorgeous," "marvel" at my profile and then keep your credit card in your wallet.

Argh!!

N.E.X.T!!!

Hahaha... what a knuckle-head! Really though, isn't that always the way?? You sort of find someone half-way decent to take a chance on and.... POOF!! Just like that, gone. Hang in there.... "He's" out there! Your stories are just hilarious!

OMGawd... hilarious... NO TRIAL guys!!! You need one of those BLACK AMEX carrying guys!!!

Sam said...

the red flag went up for me when he said he read your profile but only commented on how you look. Nothing about what he read in the profile. I don't know girl.... this is tricky stuff. be careful, Keri (a.k.a. Sam)

Struggler said...

Oh crumbs, I think this was kind of mean of him. I'm with Sam, he wasn't giving out great signals anyway...

Angie said...

lol...OMG, I am laughing because this sounds like the story of my life. That is why I don't do match.com anymore.

jenjen said...

Hmmmm, he sounded a little fishy when he said he would relocate anywhere in the world for his soul mate. To me, that screams unemployed. I say you are too gorgeous and educated for him!

XOOX

OMG!! That is hilarious! I met my fiance on-line through plenty of fish, but of course had tried match.com in the past. Met some real "winners" on there. And um, "Letter to Mr. Match.com . . . I swear he is just like a friend of ours! haha

Maya said...

His writing was a bit cheesy, if I may say, huhhh.

Sofia said...

Hey, i stumbled to your blog through New Friend Friday at The Girl Creative.
How funny!! I have met my hubby in person, but our relationship started when we were continents apart - basically through internet.

Yeah, this wasn't a real guy. It was a scam profile and that's why he wasn't available. Match.com identified him as a scam artist (probably from Nigeria) and deleted his account. The next stage of the game would be to try and charm you then get you to send him money to relocate.

If you see messages with grammar like that, it's not some idiot, it's a scammer with fake pics. He's willing to relocate because it's part of the scam. And he replies generically without writing anything about your profile because he never read it. He's complimenting you to make you feel good about yourself and groom you for bilking.
