One of my OkCupid photos was taken in a pin-up-inspired boutique I went to with friends. I tried on a dress that fit better than any glove, accentuated all my best bits, and looked STUPID-good. But I couldn’t rationalize spending $130 on it, so I asked my friends take a photo.
I added the pic to OKC, captioned: “Taken in a fitting room. I didn’t buy the dress. Because I am an idiot.”
Today I get a first OKC message from a guy saying, “Yes you should have bought that dress…” That’s the whole message.
I go to his profile, because he’s attractive enough, and his FIRST sentence is, “Only thing that seems to matter is how one looks on here.”
Oh, OK, so you’re saying you don’t like being judged only on appearance? So despite my completely-filled-in profile with many non-appearance-related conversation starters, you went with…commenting only on my appearance?
You do that math, dearie. I’ll wait…
And dammit, I SHOULD have bought that dress. I can’t even believe that’s my body — I am cute as fuck.
P.S. He sent a followup message 20 minutes later, saying, “That was a compliment. .. you’re gorgeous. … ”
Um, I KNOW it was a compliment, or at least I know that’s what you were going for. Do you think I’m too pretty to know how words work? Do I owe you a “thank you?” Go fuck yourself with your ellipses, and why the SHIT are you ALSO using periods? That’s not how any of this works!

…Ahem. What mood swing?
