This is an actual coversvtion I've had, on another dating website...

The other person, whom I'll call Ondrea (get it, Andrea versus Ondrea) sent me a "wink." Same idea there as here.

I checked her profile, which was blank except for pics. Normally, this would lead me to deleting the wink and moving on with life. Instead I was feeling playful and bored, so I sent a message:

"No info on your profile? What am I to think?"

About ten minutes later, I get the train-wreck of a response back:

"Jus made da page mamas tryna get it together now jus put my pics up but think positive mite jus b dat one u like. Ffor beautiful"

I grant a little leeway when casually chatting over e-mail, and even more when chatting on a messenger service, and a lot if the person is ESL. But I need to understand what the *censored* the person is trying to say.

Anyone else ever see anything this bad?

I have seen it for years, nothing new in that Usually asking a very specific question will throw them off if they are scammers

I have said it before and will say it again: AMD is like going to a barbecue. If you just accept the fact that there are going to be flies, you'll have a much better time. Besides, it is worth every penny you paid

Hey Andi.

Oh yes I get crazy emails all the time. Sometimes they will put letters together and its like deciphering morse code. And yes most of them would have no picture and blank essays or all essays say will tell you later.

Now with all that said. Am I just clueless because I see some put ING and I rack my brain thinking what those letters stand for. I wouldnt think too much about it but I have seen it Probably close to a dozen times.
