>Here’s a tip for you men who are surfing the online dating world: If there is a chick you are emailing and trying to get to know better, don’t tell her you are meeting other girls from the site. She’s not dumb. She knows you are chatting with other women, but she doesn’t need to be reminded! She likes to believe that she is the only one you are talking to. She already has self confidence issues. She doesn’t need you reminding her that there are a million more women than men who are currently single.
This has happened to me, obviously or I wouldn’t be writing about it. I always seem to find the guys who feel the need to let me know that they have made contact with other women, be it constantly talking about ex-girlfriends or casually mentioning the other women they have been emailing and are now going to meet in person. I don’t want to hear about the competition! I know I shouldn’t regard other women as competition, but it’s tough. It’s been ingrained into my brain since childhood.
You know what, if you are not smart enough to let me keep thinking that I am the only woman you are interested in, then I don’t think I want to get to know you better. I mean how stupid can a person be? It’s like telling people you are taking a shit. We all know people take shits, but we don’t need to be reminded of that fact.
I’m going to take my time and come up with a good reply. Maybe something along the lines of “I hope you had fun on your date because there’s no way in hell I’ll be seeing you in person any time soon.” Yes, I am bitter. It’s what fuels my creativity.
