Online Dating Red Flag #11: Phone-O-Phobia

Written by on Monday, August 24th, 2009 with 21 comments
So…I’m sure most of you have seen my Top Ten Red Flags List for both chicks & guys. Well, I’ve decided to expand that list, since new douchiness happens to pop up when I least expect it.

In the past week or two, I had been exchanging emails with one fellow when I suggested to him that it would be easier to speak over the phone. Usually I don’t have to do this, bc after a few days, most prospects usually send me their info anyway and we move on to telephonic convos.

This guy had not and I was def not interested in continuing our pen-pal exchange…

So I make the suggestion and Phone-O-Phobe emails me back with this response:

“…You should email me to my personal address. at least i can answer you from my phone then….and we can talk on the phone also. that would be great”

Huh? Is he scared of the phone or something…what the?

I email him my regular addy and a few hours later, get this response:

“Great. Do you think you can send me some photos? I wasn’t able to view them on your profile. I think it’s my computer that’s the problem.”

No dollface. Me thinks you’re the problem.

Maybe P.O.P. has had negative experience(s) with fake/bad pics & such, but that’s not my prob! And this guy’s clearly confusing online-dating with meeting chicks off of MySpace. It is NOT the same thing. Thanks, but Nah.

And P.S. – pics with chicks in your profile (friends or otherwise) are NOT favored. Nor are pics sooo close-up, I can see your brain through your nostrils.

Thanks again sweets. So Weak.


p.s. UPDATE: P.O.P. never received a response from me (obviously), but he still sent me a text on Sat @ 6:30PM saying – ‘Hey MG! Any plans for tonight?’

Grow the F – UP le douche!

  1. Just as worse (from my experience doing online dating back in the dinosaur ages of internet dating): the picture of the dude with his arm around a girl (with the girl cutout of the picture). LOL.

    Hope you have a wonderful week! xx

  2. There once was a midtown girl
    who gave online dating a whirl
    she met some real users
    And quite a few losers
    While looking for her magic pearl


  3. Wow…you remind me how hard and ridic dating was.. crazy weirdos put there. And Drew's character in "I'm not that into you" was correct…there is too much technology involved in dating =/

  4. His shit is wizz-eek! Okay now that I got that out of my system…

    I was dating a guy who had the same problem. He ended up being a loser too.

  5. Yikes! I'm scared of the phone too but come on, you have to do it! Poor guy, yeah sometimes you do have to break their spirit!

  6. I have to admit I am a total Phone-O-Phobe BUT this does sound weird. I usually sacrifice and call someone if I have to and he doesn't seem to budge!

  7. Phone phobia is really a defect that many are suffering from and are too shy tell others about but can be cured."I can see your brain through your nostrils."I like that Great post.
