does anybody else ask off the wall questionsPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Do any other members sometimes ask off the wall questions. For instance this girl's profile had 5 pics of her in different outfits all bending over her bathroom sink, and all I could think was maybe she was like the hunchback of notre dam and couldnt stand up straight. So my first message was does your back always hurt, and she said no why, I said bc all your pics are of you hunched over your sink. She didnt take to kindly to the question and let me know it, but either way I thought it was funny. What are some off the wall messages you have sent or received.

Hi jdawg4876! Very funny! Due to having no profile picture, I had a guy initiating emails that called me 'Bruce' he was too paranoid! M.

The "why do you have a dead fish in your pic" question is awesome!!!!

I got asked what someone's keyboard art was a picture of.

I made up some landscape answer based on her user name not knowing what the hell she was talking about.

She said I'd won the consolation prize of first beer bought on our first date not for getting the answer wrong, but for not saying the image had anything to do with boobs or sex. Still hadn't a clue what she was talking about. She finally realized I hadn't gotten the image.

It was this. (.)(.)(_____)0

If ANYTHING is discernible from this its boob!! Good thing I never recieved the image at the outset. I wouldn't have had our first date.

I had a girl ask me what my stance on bisexuality was early into our first online chat.
We still chat alot, and are likely to meet soon, but for her it's a big part of her identity, and obviously a deal-breaker if I was intolerant/disrespectful of such things.

I did also have one woman ask if I was "proportional". My profile clearly states I'm 6'7", and it was obvious what she meant. Haven't spoken to her since, but it was a weird start to a brief conversation.

two minutes into the first phone call, she asked, 'so, are you getting laid much off POF?'

A new member here stated on his profile that he doesn't mind spiders but HATES snakes. I live in the country, and am rather fond of our resident garter snakes. They sometimes do rather amusing things and if I see one I'm careful not to hurt it.

Anyway, I sent him a message with the title, "But garter snakes are CUTE!". No reply, so I'm assuming I didn't sway his opinion on the matter (grin).

I sent a massage to a woman who had an interest listed as "decorating love animals". Obviously she meant to list "decorating" as an interest and "love animals" as another.

I asked her what is a love animal and why would she want to decorate them.

I had a guy send me an email and ask "why do all the short chicks have big tits". I just replied "lucky I guess". Didn't hear from him again - Friday night drunk email.

I really got a laugh out of the OP's remark about the hunchback. Too friggin funny. I have always wondered that myself - "can't you stand up straight?"

I got a dinner appointment for making a remark about the windshield of a woman's car. I wasn't even flirting, but...oh, well. It was more of a "let's commiserate about modern life" and tell stories about POF, not so much a date. But it was face-to-face time.

This is what I mean when I say you should talk to anyone on POF the same way you'd talk to your friends, mention the same goofy stuff that gets your attention, and tell the same boring stories that your friends would understand.

People with common perceptions and connections will understand. Others won't get it, and probably aren't worth your time.

I personally love your message!!! lol
I think I would say I got the cheesiest line/message just this morning:
"They have a new sandwich at McDonald's named after you... It's called the McHottie!" and this from a 38 y/o man!!
Then there's the one from last week:
"Love your tits!!! Real or fake? I'm guessing 36D!! Do you shave it all off or leave a little? Can't wait to motor boat those huge whoppers!!"
Yup, you OP, are NOT the problem at all with on line dating!

I don't get many strange questions. I got a first message from one woman that was just a link to a YouTube video. When I responded saying something like "Thanks?" she just asked "What is that instrument at the beginning?" Erm...

I keep doing the "Want to have sex and get a pizza some time?" line but it never gets to the point where I can say "What you don't like pizza?".

(Just kidding, but really it seems like I send the of the wall questions to the ones that aren't going to appreciate humor, and the straight forward questions to the ones that do appreciate humor).
There's just no winning.
