ICYMI, I joined the bandwagon and signed up for Match.com. My Mr. Right is taking his sweet time so I thought I'd help him out and meet him halfway, given he's on the same site and if he's not then I'll consider this practice or something.
This new blog series details the highlights of my
misadventures and to protect the not-so-innocents, I will not be sharing photos, names, screenshots, and what-not. I don't want to be hunted down!
Code Name: Johnny Bravo
Hotness Factor: 4 Cauldrons
Johnny Bravo is one of the first people I "met" and eventually conversed with via phone when I first started on Match. He's funny, flirty, cute, and attentive. We have enough things in common so our conversations flow and did I mention he's cute? Yeah, Superman is smooth with a hot body to boot! I'd get sweet good morning videos from him and the silliness would continue on throughout the day.
Until I realized that this dude is so full of himself!
He keeps sending me these vanity shots and videos not to keep me intrigued, but to fan his oh so fragile ego! Not only that, he would make baiting comments that sound self-deprecating at first but really he's fishing for compliments:
JB: I'm so poor and ugly, do you want to buy my Benz? I'll sell it to you real cheap.
Me: Ummm... no, you're not ugly, and no, I don't want your car, but thanks?
And perhaps the most annoying is how he keeps projecting and doesn't even realize it! I'm quite surprised because this dude sounded like a well-rounded individual and super confident only to realize that his strength is his greatest weakness. He's only as good as his looks but there's not much substance underneath the lean body and pretty smile. His EQ is that of a 15yo kid! What a fucking waste of good looks!!!
I eventually stopped talking to him, I told him that I'm not his type and it took some time convincing him until he finally got it. I know, I should've told him HE'S not my type but I didn't want to hurt his fragile feelings so I let him have the satisfaction of thinking that it's me and not him, I don't think I would be able to handle a grown man throwing a tantrum because their ego's been bruised.
Verdict: Definite No.
Lesson Learned: Vanity is NOT my favorite sin.
