I've posted before about how to handle it when menz post flirty messages to me and take the playful banter a little racy. I wondered how to "play along" a little bit, without it getting "too too". From your feedback I concluded that it isn't easy to keep "it clean" when someone has taking it that way...and that it isn't worth it to try...

So, I got a note this weekend from someone I've only talked with on line on a dating site. We communicated a little bit this fall, no dates were set up, and communication just faded. I haven't written to him and he hasn't written to me for at least two months. And then this weekend, out of the blue, during the snowstorm he wrote "How are you keeping warm today?" I wrote something innocent about using my oven to make cookies. His reply "I was thinking of something involving friction" I write, "Like rubbing two sticks together to make a fire :)" His reply, "that is one way. Can you think of another way involving friction?"

Ugh. I'm thinking about responding: "I'm a classy lady. I like to flirt, I like to tease, I like to have sex, I like to talk about sex WHEN I AM IN A RELATIONSHIP and not before!!! And you, Sir, just blew it with me" but instead I'll just give him crickets....

Why do you people think it is okay to "go there" when texting on a dating site? Anonymity? What our culture says is okay? Ugh. just ugh.

Yeah. That is a bit odd. Nothing for months and right to the innuendo. He should have taken the hint when you replied the way you did.

I don't think there is anything wrong with trying to have some sexual flirtation on-line before having a relationship, but you need to read between the lines when the other person is not there with you.

He's just looking for booty and I'm sure there have been times where this method has worked for him.

He's using the site to hook up. That's all some people even go online for.

If all he is looking for is sex, there is no risk, for him, in broaching the subject too soon. It's gross, but it cuts to the chase and weeds out those who want something more substantial.

The banter turns sexual right away with people who are only looking for sex. It's how you spot them. People might put in their profiles they are looking for long term, but if they are asking about sex stuff right away, they have revealed their true intentions.

Your best bet is to block those guys. There is no point in aruging with them.


Keep calm and carry on.

Try....

Would me putting my foot in your ass be enough friction for you?

bwahahahahah

And this:

Makes perfect sense. Why does it take me so long to see these simple truths? Always looking for the good in people makes me kind of wonderful and kind of naive, I guess...

No worries. I haven't blocked him but I'm not replying either. Ever.
