Is this a Joke?

So the internet dating thing provides me with lots of laughs.

I thought I’d share with you, one of the so sad it’s funny funnier emails I’ve received:

Look you are the only one that i could wright to so i hope this goes some where like atlease being friends. I'm ready for a relationship it's just find that right woman to be the one that i would always look up to no matter what. The ups an downs in a relationship help build one very strong. Hope to here from you soon. My yahoo address is xxxx82 1

I’ll admit, I laughed out loud after reading the first line. “Look you are the only one that I could wright to.”

Way to charm me buddy.

I mean, he’s not “wrighting” to me because he finds me incredibly funny, or beautiful, or because he wants to, but because I’m pretty much his only option.

Great, because I don’t love feeling special at all.

As you can see the next three sentences are just a mess. Such a mess they actually made me feel a little bad for the dumb schmuck poor guy.

And then he signs off with the wrong email address because if this were truly his yahoo address, I’m pretty sure it would end in But maybe, I’m wrong, doubt it, but hey.

And just in case you’re curious, me and mr.-should-have-someone-proof-all-his-writing-before-making-contact-with-a-potential-date are not “atlease” friends.

Too funny. When I get e-mails like that I reply with one word: DORK!

I haven't gotten any responses from that yet.

...Here to wish a BFF a Happy Bday. BFF's rock!

That is too funny. I like the way he misspells write and how you didn't put his name in to "protect is stupidity."

Been there and done that! There really are FROGS and you gotta just go with the flow until you find the PRINCE!

Stopping by from SITS and thought I would say Hi!

I love your blog, just catching up on it. But, I wanted to tell you that the reason this guy's email was wrong is not because he gave you the wrong address. Its because scans each email sent and replaces any outside email addresses with the address. It stops subscribing members from giving out their other email to non-members, and it forcing an interested non-member to pay for a subscription before they can respond. Still, I have been on for a little while now. Emails like his, you want to stay away from.
