Warning!

02 October, 2011

Yes, you can't have me.

I found myself alone at a small art gallery last night. As I looked at the images of avatars Photoshopped to look like cracked frescoes, a lone avatar approached. I really wasn't in the mood to chat, but if someone tries to engage me, I do try not to be rude, so...

[21:34] lola: HI
[21:34] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: hi
[21:34] lola: CAN YOU PLEAS KISS ME
[21:35] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: lol... why?
[21:35] lola: I JUST WANT TO PLEAS

OK. I could have pulled out my double-peck-on-the-cheeks greeter, but I decided not to encourage in any way. I certainly wasn't going to lock lips.

[21:35] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: i don't think so...
[21:35] lola: O WELL

A quick scan of her avatar. Not unattractive. An AO would have done wonders. Maybe not dressing like GI Jane (depending on the guy) would have helped a bit, too.

[21:35] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: i'm sure you'll find someone willing
[21:36] lola: BYE IF YOU DONT WANT TO YOU DO HAVE TO

Oh. Well, thanks so much!

[21:39] lola: WHO DO YOU THINK I CAN KISS
[21:40] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: just go exploring...
[21:40] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: someone will ask you
[21:40] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: i'm sure of it
[21:40] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: newb hangouts, etc

I told her this knowing full well that she'd get requests for more than just kisses. As if she didn't already know. Always happy to help.

[21:40] lola: I WANT YOU SO MUCK
[21:40] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: no, you don't
[21:42] lola: YES I DO I WANT YOU SO MUCK

Wow. Six minutes and "playing hard to get" is all it takes. Who knew that I had such animal magnetism?

I decided at this point to tell her that maybe I didn't want her so "muck," and why.

[21:42] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: well, i happen to be gay, anyway, so...
[21:43] lola: NOW BI DON'T WANT YOU I'M OUT OF HERE
[21:43] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ: lol... see ya

I guess I should just be glad that she didn't decide to try to "change" me.

My fickle little newb walked away, but then came back and tried to push me, again and again. When she finally gave up (move lock, ftw!) and left me for the last time, and I was finally able to regain my composure, I shouted after her.

[21:44] ĢƦĮƑƑĮŊ shouts: the good-looking ones are already taken, or gay, or just not interested, sweetie! sometimes, all three!
