With all due respect, no.

My brother was visiting this weekend to do some last minute Christmas shopping, and after eating some awesome Chinese take-out from our old neighbourhood, we reviewed some of the e-mails I had received on POF recently. To say the least, this guy was our favourite:

I am relatively new to this e-correspondence stuff however I wanted to let you know that I think that you are beautiful . With all due respect. I am grateful to be afforded the opportunity to meet you.In fact, remind me later to send a thank you letter (smile). I was drinking a health smoothie and almost choked when I saw you (hahaha) That's how surprised I was when I laid my eyes on you. I am being honest. Looking deeper than just your pic, I sense that you are just as beautiful on the inside and that's what's even more important. I am not only attracted, but also fascinated with you. I am not looking for an email pen pal or a friend. I am looking for my best friend/lover/queen. I would love to be able to know and grow with you.

I had not replied to his first message, and as I was checking my e-mail, I received another message from him:

Subject: please consider my offer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i think we have so many things in common and i feel like as if you are part of my life , heart and soul . I really love you deeply because I have never seen a girl who tells the truth and not afraid of anything. It is a rare trait in our culture and I can go back home and here in canada and I can never find someone just like you.
I m currently living in etobicoke and I would like to meet you. Can you add me to your MSN and I will also give you my phone number too. I am willing to meet you. I am sure you will not be disappointed and I think you are the best of all that i have ever met. The more i think of you. the more am falling in love with you over and over. Please consider my offer and I will do anything to make you the happiest. Love you, :)

Sorry I've been slow with the updates, but I'm just starting to get my life back in order. I'll be visiting my family for a week or two over Christmas, so I won't be going on any dates, but don't worry, my trusty Mac is coming with me, and I do have a few good stories to tell.

Thanks to my loyal readers, welcome to anyone new, and happy holidays, everyone!


  1. Oh god!! If I didn't know you I would think you were making this shit up!!!

  2. Uuuuggghh. Creepy, creepy, CREEPY.

    Let's hope that your holiday break gives you a nice, extended break from all of the crazies.
