as part of the Gladstone plans I fired up my account on gaydar.com.au a week ago and changed my location to Gladstone. (I'm gaydar.com.au/dcarm)
For those of you who don't know, gaydar is kinda like a gay dating site. Except you can say "just looking for friends" and you can say who with. I explained the situation in my profile, said I was in a relationship, I'm looking for friends so that I'll know someone up there when I get there, yadda yadda.
Up until yesterday all of the messages I've gotten have been decent, they seem like nice guys, and yeah. But today! Today I received:
"Hi man gee don't expect too much looking the way u do"
My response to this is a bit of shock followed by "Seriously!?! However accurate it might or might not be, that's so uncalled for! A message like that from out of the blue invokes my "fuck you" reflex.
"yeah thanks. I'm only looking for friends because I've already got a partner. Been together for 4 years. Don't expect too much, acting the way u do…"
What possesses someone to send a message like that? It's not like I'd sent him one before. Does he feel so inferior that he has to put down random people on the internet? He would have been attractive if he hadn't sent that message. Isn't it odd how one statement can change how you'd look at someone completely?
Where have all the manners gone?
