Hi how are you what is new? Do anything fun or interesting lately? My fiance and I in an open relationship and looking for a girl to hang out with me while my girl is with her boytoy. I too like computers, it seems we have alot in common. I hope to talk to you soon, Cameron
For starters, Cameron could have paid a little more attention to his grammar for this message. That first sentence could have used at least one comma and probably another period. And, for the love of God, people! Please put a space between “a” and “lot.” Alot is NOT a word.
Okay, now that I’ve let my inner Grammar Nazi out for a moment, let’s look at the meat of this message. Guys, please stop opening messages with the tired old “How are you” line? I’m fine. And if I’m not fine, I’m not going to tell a stranger all about my problems. And if I do, you should run. Far. The same goes for the “what’s new” line. You haven’t met me yet, so everything is new.
Cameron’s next line is honest, but not recommended. It’s good that he explains that he and his girl are in an open relationship, but telling me that he is just looking for someone to keep him company while his partner is with her “boytoy” shows less interest in me as a person than as a distraction. And, while I do appreciate the indication that he actually read a little bit of my profile and found a common interest, it just falls flat after the previous sentence. As someone in an open relationship, I completely understand the desire to have a balance in the relationships. However, Cameron’s statement brings to mind visions of him pining away for his girlfriend while we’re discussing our one common interest, computers, over coffee.
