To NOT be overwhelmed with desire at this smooth talking?

Ok, so my facebook is restricted so that unless you are my friend all you can see is my name and profile pic.

My profile pic is one of the few where i think i look ok. (DS took it just as i got out the bath and was applying some make up)
Obviously no flabby bits and wrinkles.

anyway. I got an inbox message from a guy telling me "Ur gawjus babe x"

Now, after looking at it for a minute and translating it i replied with a simple "thank you"

He's not a bad looking fella so i took a look at his profile. he's 22 shock
I am errm, not 22.

Within a flash he comes back with "Oh ok u wana meet up n get to know me x"

Not entirely sure of the etiquette for letting a stranger down via the internet i politely replied "As flattered as i am, I think i'm a little old for you."

to which he came back almost instantly with "Na ur not to old 4 me hun so u wana get to know me then x"

Now i have translated this as - its ok, i don;'t mind the odd granny. so do you want to meet up for some WKD's and a shag?

So, as flattering as it is to have been contacted by this good looking toy boy, I am not entirely floored by his technique.
I am sure if were his age i would be over the moon to have received such attention.

Is this really what dating is like now? a 2 minute conversation via facebook and then off to bed?

well, it's always nice to be asked, isn't it? smile

No I'm sure it's not.

If you want to date, it's best to get out in the real world where people talk all proppa like.

what a catch!

Gawjuss? Any man saying that sounds like an assole.
Sounds like a chancer to me

Mamaz0n Tue 14-Jun-11 19:11:21

i was undoubtedly flattered but seriously? If ever i needed proof that a toyboy is not for me he gave it.

Not that toyboys are all bad. I know of at least 2 Mners who are blissfully happy with men of a similar age.

But this one really isn't floating my boat

SuePurblybilt Tue 14-Jun-11 19:15:01

wana get to know me? No, ta ever so.

Whatever the girl version of dick shrivelling is, txtspk gives it to me.

pumpernickel10 Tue 14-Jun-11 19:17:12

Was he at least good looking?

DontGoCurly Tue 14-Jun-11 19:18:53

oh Gawd, a randy late teen I'll wager (22 going on 18) he'll be around to 'kick your back door in' if you give him the slightest encouragement!

Not that I'd know anything about Cougars of course.

I would rule out anyone who typed gawjus. Most boak-inducing 'word' ever.

EggyAllenPoe Tue 14-Jun-11 19:25:49

he probably has you down as a 'milf'...

teraspawn Tue 14-Jun-11 19:30:06

As a 22-year-old with many intelligent, witty, articulate 22-year-old friends - I promise we are not all like that.

"I am sure if were his age i would be over the moon to have received such attention."

No, if you were his age, this would have happened several times since you were around fifteen or so, and so you'd probably ignore it or have replied "Fuck off you twat". Which is probably why he sounded so surprised in his reply grin

Does anyone else reaaaaaally want to see Mamaz0n's FB pic now???

pumpernickel10 Tue 14-Jun-11 20:31:53

Waves arms in the air like a mad woman
Me me me meeeeeeeeee

Binfullofmaggotsonthe45 Tue 14-Jun-11 20:35:26

Please show us the pic, and the pic of him. If that's not wrong in anyway.<blethering innocent emoticon>

Mamaz0n Tue 14-Jun-11 22:33:37

ok. profile pic is the wet hair one that is on my Mn profile.

Not sure im allowed to show you the guys pic. might breach some sort of internet etiquette or something.

But yes he was a good looking lad.

Txt speak makes my eyes hurt. It takes me ages to read it. I have a friend who uses it and as much as i love her the typing irritates me immensely

AnyFucker Tue 14-Jun-11 22:39:06

Good gawd, Mamazon, no wonder you are firing up the loins of the teenage hoi polloi

you are hawt

Binfullofmaggotsonthe45 Tue 14-Jun-11 22:44:21

Good job you didn't have the top picture on as your profile pic, you'd be swamped with txt talk crap!

JeremyVile Tue 14-Jun-11 22:52:09

Flippin heck, you're certainly gawjus!

"so you wanna get to know me then?" what??? Based on what and why???

He makes it sound like he's offering up some exciting opportunity for you, I think he has rather overrated himself here.

Mamaz0n Tue 14-Jun-11 22:52:14

the top pic is my "before" pic from when i first did the MN haircut.

It didn't occur to me that i looked so "booby" grin

AnyFucker Tue 14-Jun-11 22:55:25

I wish I was that gorgeous sad

Mamaz0n Tue 14-Jun-11 22:56:03

Jezza - yes indeed. Like i should be so utterly thrilled that such a whipper snapper has lowered his standards to talk to me
