The candyman can't

I didn't have high hopes for, but it was free, so I signed up. Today I got this message from a gentleman styling himself "Candyman":

Well I will like to say somethings about my self. Firstly I am a one woman man, I am 50 years old residing in the U.S. I like been honest and down to earth, I love to going to go cruising on a yacht with my lady during my free time I just love the outdoors. I believe the woman in my life deserve my love and trust, I like to making people happy and be there for them whenever they need my attention especially that special lady in my life. I hate to see my lady sad and blue, I always try to give her the best of everything I can muster to put her in a happy mood. I am a man that is passionate about treating my lady like a queen. I'm looking for a lady that will be the Queen of my heart and together we will rule my world. I will make her proud and treat her nice. I am a very romantic man that know how to make her feel like a true woman and making her happy for having me in her life. I need a woman that is loving, caring, open hearted, trustworthy, truthful, understanding, down to earth and knows how to treat a man as I will to her. She will love and accept my kids as hers own.

I don't see distance as any problem cos i know i can travel any mile for love, and i would love to have frequent chat with you and i would like to add me to your yahoo messenger if you have one and please email me to my email below or add me too:

Hope to hear from you back and have a nice day

P.S: You great.

Of course I'm great. I'm more than 10 years younger than you are. And what language are you writing? It resembles English.

Let's look at Candyman's profile:

Gender: male
Age: 48
Religion: Jewish Renewal
Languages: Danish (Minimal), English (Fluent)

I think he got that backwards, although his English is for sure better than my Danish.

General Information: I am a well-educated, working professional. I enjoy reading, dancing, walking on the beach, fishing, camping, going to movies, just hanging out, and other fun things. I am very sincere and would enjoy a true romantic and fulfilling relationship. Someone who will be there for me in good times and bad times as well, someone who will be there for me in good times and bad times as well, someone who will give me her attention and show me her affection as well, and someone i could give passionate kisses and make sweet love to

Oh-kay. There's no doubt Candyman isn't modern orthodox, as I state I am and what I'm looking for. Seems to have shaky boundaries as well, and questionable social judgment. Why am I always pursued by weirdos and shunned by normal guys?

To his credit, Candyman says he's looking for a woman between the ages of 40 to 60. Although in practice, he's hitting me up a little early.

  1. I got this same exact, and I mean exact, message. Apparently, the Candyman is using a shotgun in his approach.

    You know, just shoot at something out there and see what drops.

  2. He actually sounds pretty nice and even relatively normal, compared to some of the nuttiness I've seen online. He seems to have good intentions, at least, even if he's whacked. Plus, give him credit for expressing himself in another language, right?

    And this is why I don't just MEET the weirdos, I DATE the weirdos. I think I'm a little too forgiving?

  3. Like I said, his English beats my Danish hands down.

    I can't say whether you're too forgiving. I just got tired of going on dates that I just hated from start to finish.

  4. Weirdos ? You write a blog for depression.. The answer to finding a partner is to start accepting that everyone is different escpecially on the Internet and not calling them weirdos, believe me, it's better you see their worse now than after you close the door to discover the guy that was all sweet is in fact, full of issues. Completly constructive criticism. Good hunting

  5. Sometimes these chance encounters lead to something more. Not between you and Candyman but you may know someone suited for Candyman or he may know your bashert.

    Once I fixed up two of my friends with each other. It was not a good match but one of my friends said that she knew someone who was suitable and made the match.

    They have been happily married for almost 13 years know.

    You never know who may introduce you to your bashert, even on a free dating site.
