Refreshing Bullshit

in Emails from Suitors

One major issue that people have with online dating is the dishonesty or misleading information. People will lie just about every possible damn thing, so it takes some time and experience to weed out the bullshit. Once in a while, though, someone springs on you with brutal honesty- so much so that it’s refreshing.


No Bullshitter: seeking a like-minded woman to share a disastrous 3-9 month relationship with who will at first give me obsessive love, praise and devotion – but whose paranoia, self-loathing and fear of rejection and abandonment will eventually lead her to alternately push me away and pull me closer in a love/hate cycle that will lead to the eventual emotional breakdown of one or other party – or if we’re lucky – both!

I know this is how most relationships are in reality, but it seems so much more terrible to admit in writing (and hey! why are you stereotyping us females?! not all of us are paranoid!). Kudos for his unique take on an opening email, but it isn’t exactly enticing. Now if he said he was hoping to stretch it out for at least 12 months so that we can exchange shitty gifts to commemorate the equally shitty relationship, I would have been down. 3-9 mos is just not enough time to inflict permanent scars on each other!
