So this thing keeps happening.
I have an online dating profile, which I’m not using much, but I see a lot of this type of thing. Guy messages me with disparaging comment about something related to my profile (and I say guy because to this point only guys have been doing this), and if I get aggravated enough to give quite a dismissive response, they come back with a totally normal and nice question or statement, completely not acknowledging what happened before.
What exactly is the reasoning here? Is the idea that I will be so blinded by my initial rage that I respond nicely without thinking? That I will be so relieved that actually this person does think baking (or whatever) is a fine hobby so that when they take interest I’ll be thrilled to respond?
Whatever it is, its not working.I have no desire to talk to these people. Stop doing it. All it achieves is making me grumpy for the rest of the day.
