I’ve started to respond to all the okcupid messages I get with forms of “well I’m not really into dating right now”, which has garnered some interesting and also curiously hostile responses. The most common question is why I still have an account then, and I never answer, because a little mystery with a slight sprinkling of rejection is what makes the medicine go down. Plus, I’m a jerk.
I should really start doing this too. I keep accidentally flaking on a bunch of pretty awesome dudes because I’m too busy/too disinterested in sex right now to keep up with them. I’m going to start saying “I CANT GO OUT WITH YOU IM TOO SAD FOREVER” and see what they say
