Now, after my last social experiment epic fail (how to alienate all your FB friends) I was determined that I was going to go ALL the way with this one and post a selection of messages I'd received and let you guys chose which one I went on a date with.
Anyway, 'things' got in the way and after a really good start I let it slide.
The emails from Badoo have continued to drop into my inbox and I've ignored them UTILL last night.
I was curious, I couldn't sleep and I was bored so I thought it might be time to revisit Badoo.
Ok, now I'm going to rewind a little and go right back to the beginning.
My very first message was ...
My second message was more promising.
Short, pithy and with a little touch of humour.
Oh, and he was local, absolutely gorgeous and had a great smile.
At the end of his message he said, 'can I ask you a question?'.
Well, I picked up this message as I was walking into town and I decided not to lose anytime and send a reply straight away.
What was I thinking???
Me, the effing android and my fat fongerz, SUCH a bad combination whilst walking!!!
Curious about what he wanted to ask me I started typing. .
Like me, many of you probably use predictive text. It saves so much time and just generally makes life easier.
I don't know if yours works in the same way as mine but after 2 letters mine will make suggestions based on the words I most use.
Merrily I typed (or at least intended to type) 'of course you can ask me a question'.
Part way through the message I realised that the predictive text had substituted a word for me.
Smiling I hit the back space ......
Not looking where I was going I nearly walked into a lady walking the other way. After apologising profusely I went back to finish my message
Fuck, fuck, F U U U C K - I'd hit send by mistake!
So, the message I'd actually sent read:
'Of course you can ARSE me'!!!
I pondered my position for a while and decided that there really was no way back whichever way he replied but, I needn't have worried ...
HE DIDN'T ;)
I have so much more to share but I don't want to shoot my bolt (such a descriptive phrase) so I'll do a series of small posts on this after leaving you with one of this mornings offerings:
Spunky - 27 - from London - 'I'd take you'.
