One of the things I don’t like about online dating is that it can sometimes be really difficult to know how to respond to people. For example, I frequently get messages like this one:
Um. Hey. What do you do with this kind of an overture???? It’s actually worse than getting catcalled on the street, because at least then I could just turn around and flip the dude off. But this, this, I don’t even know what to call it! Is it a note? An email? A letter? A sneer? A sincere attempt at human interaction?
