Explore British food and drink
Look, I’m as WASPy as you can get but even I can’t believe someone thought sponsoring this shit was a good idea. English are known for terrible food, but they can still throw down fish and chips, and roast a leg of lamb. This food looks like it just gave up.
Hot new trend: Dudes on dating sites freaking out at you when you don’t immediately respond to their entreaties to hang. (If this were a true trend piece, the title would be something like, “Men: Are They the New Women?”)
In light of this recent article in Jezebel, I would like to offer the following useful messages for your OKCupid toolbox free of charge:
- For when someone stops responding:
"So this is where I say something polite that makes it not awkward if we ever run into each other. I had fun and I’m glad we met. I hope whatever reason you have for fading out isn’t too serious or tragic."
- For when you’re not really into it:
"I enjoyed meeting you, and would be pleased if we ever bumped into eachother, but I don’t want to waste your time. I know that there’s someone looking for you, and I don’t want to get in her way by pretending to feel more strongly about you than I do. I think it’s best if we went our separate ways and made room in our lives for someone better suited to each of us."
I would suggest copy/pasting these to the “notes” section of your phone so you can access them easily as needed.
These are of course free of charge, but if you find them useful and would like to voluntarily make a donation towards the further development of my talents, you can do so here: http://bit.ly/OKRejects
