Plenty of Fish

There is a dating website that is free and online.


So I decided to sign up, what have I got to lose right?


And here is my first experience~!  Lovely.


Fish:  Hi I like your profile but I think there is a misprint.  You state you want to date guys from 35 to 60 years old, is that correct or a misprint?

Me: Hi your profile looks interesting as well.  No, its not a misprint although 35 is kind of young!  😉

Fish:  Well how would you feel if I stated I wanted to date from 35 year to 60 year old, that’s a 25 year spread?!?


Wow, um how to respond.  My knee jerk reaction was to say… Frankly I don’t care how you feel, as I don’t know you! 

How to put a girl on the defensive right off the bat!  I put down 35 – 60 because it was there and I wasn’t really thinking about it!  

So here is how I responded.


Me:  Wow, I didn’t think of that, thanks for that perspective.

Fish:  And further more, you would get used by a guy that young and then you would have to explain it to your kids!


REALLY?  I have to tell you, I was flabbergasted.  Is this fish joking? 

I didn’t even think twice or respond.    That fish has issues.


I blocked him and will reel in the line for awhile!


Scary stuff!

  1. There are jerks on that site. Obviously, that guy is socially inept. Some guys think that an argument can pass for conversation. Anyone who is not pleasant from the first conversation gets no second chances. Think what he would be like in everyday life after he got to know you. I don’t know how old you are, but my age range is nine years younger than I am to how old I think the guy might be and still remember to unzip his pants before he pees.

    When I was younger and before dating sites existed, I usually dated guys 10 years or more younger than I because they thought I was younger, and I thought they were older. ANYONE could take advantage of either of us only if we allow it.

    There is a guy who states in his profile name that he has AIDS. He went to the trouble of contacting me, and I tried to be polite, but mentioned the likelihood of his infecting partners. He got nasty told me I probably had AIDS, too. I blocked him. I want my life to be better, not worse!

  2. There are a lot of weirdos out there. My friend wants me to create an account on POF. I haven’t yet but I’ve tried before with no luck.

  3. Maybe he was trying to be funny or something, but I would just throw that fish back in. Good luck, be picky.

  4. What a weirdo. In fact, most of the men on online dating sites are completely weird, and you have to be willing to cull a lot of the herd before finding the right one. Men almost forget that they should be just as polite to people online as they would be if they met the lady through a mutual friend.
