Never Take Dating Advice from Depeche Mode

17 Jun

Tonight I got my very first text message from a dude on match.com.  Taking Depeche Mode’s advice, I responded.  Pretty sure that taking his advice made this the ONLY text message that I’ll receive from this dude.

  • Match Dude: Hey, it’s [fake name].  Match.
  • Me: Game.  Set.

Hello?  Anyone?  Anyone?

    Love it! Haha. No need to “beat around the bush”. Did he literally just say, “Hi, it’s [name]. Match.”?

    Talk about building conversation momentum.

      He did actually write that. Somewhat lame, but my reply would have made it uber super funny…had he seen fit to reply. -CS

    Maybe he didn’t get it. You’re in Philly now? The men here are a bit dumb and not quick to get jokes or they take it as snarky. I did match for 2 years here and can’t say that I met anyone that was truly that with it.

    Oh, goodness. Your text? Brilliance. His? Beyond lame. Who writes such a thing? Is it too much to say “Hi, my name is Jeff from match.com”? It is only a few more words.

    See, if he’d gotten it, that would have been a good sign. That he didn’t – saves you time and him (we hope) money.
