A few weeks ago, I decided to delete all my profiles on gay “dating” sites (more on that in a different post) save for okcupid and jack’d. So I was intrigued by this new gay app called “MISTER”. MISTER bills itself as a more friendly and respectful oriented app/site for guys looking to meet other guys. With me being curious, I decided to try it out. I started talking to some guys and received a couple of “gropes”(I’m guessing its a form of wink or something along those lines). I usually respond with a “Thanks/Thank You” since its just common courtesy. So after sending a “Thanks/Thank You” to one of the guys he responded back and we engaged in a friendly conversation which ended up in a very surprising twist. Below is the entire conversation that happened over the course of 2 days. I have changed the person’s username for obvious reasons. Everything is verbatim.
I may also post screenshots I took

Guy 1: So y no mor pix
Me: I dont like sharing my pics
Guy 1: makes hard to get to know u…
Me: Not really
Guy 1: really
Me: Thats very false you don’t have any data to prove it. And I talk to guys who dont mind that I only have one picture
Guy 1: So liv in yur scienc fair
Huh? You could say that. I always look for evidence
Guy 1: too bad. doesn’t interest me
Me: Thats fine. We all have our preferences
Guy 1: gud luk w. yur cold clinical psuedo intelectial approach to dating. Im sure yull get wat yur lookn for
Me: My apologies if I offended you. I don’t know if you are being sarcastic or you are attacking me. I never said I was looking to date, my life is more than just a series of pictures. Calling me cold ad pseudo intellectual is uncalled for. Just because we have different perspective on how we approach things does not make either one of us wrong or right. Good luck on whatever you are looking for
Guy 1: u too
Bear in mind that I was speaking with a 42 year old man. I usually refrain from speaking to people who can’t really spell correctly but I saw no harm in just a conversation. I am still in shock by the way he just attacked me and called me cold, clinical and pseudo intellectual. While it can be argued that I may have come off slightly agressive, when I said, he didn’t have data to prove his argument, I didn’t see it as mean. Surprisingly, he hasn’t blocked me yet…and I also haven’t blocked him
