Being picky, and weird hobbies

Over the years, a number of people have assumed that being an unmarried lassie means that I must be picky. So I was relieved to find out that I’m not the only one out there with high standards.

I was messaged by a guy who is looking for “ONLY Asian Girls please respect my choices Please no over 38’s or overweight woman either.” Dude, I’m respecting your choices, but my photo clearly does not show an Asian girl. Sorry to be disrespectful. Perhaps you might actually like to look at my profile.

Another emphasised with bold type, “I am only interested in meeting women aged between 20 – 35 years old.” It was very disappointing not to meet his standards. His name?  fatpizzaman44. I wonder how all the 20-35yr olds out there feel about meeting 44 year old Fat Pizza Men.

After all of this, it was reassuring to come across a guy who was much more broadminded, interested in meeting women aged 36-92. Really?  How many 92 year olds are online for starters, let alone dealing with this brave new world of demisexuals and heteroflexibles?

It was also great to know that I’m not the only one out there with weird hobbies, as men interested in the arts do seem to be thin on the ground. I chatted with a guy who loves baking cookies and drinking hot milk, and a self-described intellectual who is really into phylosphy, the fisical and methafisical (spelling ALL his baby).  

Another described his hobby as “accepting the universe for what it is…..pork chops.” I’m not sure if that was meant to be profound, or a grammar issue, but it’s something for all of us to consider, vegans and carnivores alike.

The killer though was a guy who enjoys looking at his fishtank when he needs to relax. So that’s what I’ve been missing all these years!  

Seriously. You can’t make this stuff up. I’m off to buy a fishtank.
