[We were talking about OkCupid adventures and mis-adventures, particularly around messaging. He was pulling the, “Well at least you’re getting messages!” card, and I was explaining that it would be far better to get no messages at all than to overwhelmingly get gross messages from creepsters.]
EK: But you were able to wade through all of that to find a couple of good ones, huh?
Me: Yeah, I guess I was. [pauses] Oh, well, actually I messaged [Buddy] first, so I guess that doesn’t count.
EK: Wow! *looks puzzled*
Me: Does anything about me suggest that I would not be a person who messages people I’m interested in first?
EK: *laughs* Now that I think about it, that makes perfect sense…
