    But..your beautiful, what? YOUR BEAUTIFUL, WHAT??  I must know what’s beautiful!!

    Heh, I spot a dedicated Grammar Nazi! :D – But, yeah, what comes along with online dating… do you actually have to do anything? Is it restricted only to XBox Live? Can you still date REAL people? Or does this all come down to that guy picturing sex with your avatar, and telling his friends about it?

    Activities include downloading demo’s together, holding hands in Minecraft Xbox Live Edition, and tea bagging noobs together in Halo Reach.

    Yeah, as someone who was eventually asked by a buddy (to be fair, I chatted and played FPS with him a LOT) if I was interested in being his “Xbox gf”, it’s occurred to me recently that I’m not even sure how Xbox Live dating works.*

    Aside from the obvious innuendos and potential cyber junk (that doesn’t belong on Live anyway). I mean, what would you do if you were dating online? Game together? Chat together, but with far more sexual implications? :/

    *I should note that we’ve had a lot of drama and trollish behaviour in our tight-knit community, so it wasn’t like he just up-and-asked “Hey there, wanna be my gf?”

     Awwwwwww! That DOES sound pretty romantic! :P

    Well this isn’t like, a bad message at all, I think. You could just be like ‘No thanks! *HUGGLEZ!*’ XD

    I usually respond with “I think you also have really beautiful/pretty eyes!”
    that tends to make them pause for some reason?

    Oh! Here’s a question!
    Is it possible to ‘cheat’ on your xbox live boyfriend??? ^__________^

    Hm. Perhaps he’s shy about asking you to be a FULL-ON girlfriend, so maybe he testing the waters, so to speak.  Maybe he’s looking for someone to have greater emotional intimacy with, but isn’t comfortable having it with anyone he can’t call his “girlfriend”.

    Or maybe he’s just looking for someone he can reliably cybersex with. *shrug*

    Why do I have the feeling that this guy hadn’t actually talked to her before this? If so, yeah I’d be a little creeped out by this, too.

     D’aww

    Huh~
    This doesn’t seem like a Fat, Ugly or Slutty-esque type comment. I mean, no insults, and not really lewd. A bit sad maybe, but not bad enough to merit being on here. Guy might just be lonelies.
    … Wellll yea, I guess this could fall under Jeepers Creepers, but I just had to state this doesn’t hold a light to most of the other stuff on here~

    Yeah, you get entries like this here sometimes.  It rubs me the wrong way too.  FUoS staff will say that they’re more interested in finding humor in messages, than finding examples of horrible human beings.

    I wouldn’t mind it so much if they didn’t also out the offender by making their name known.

    see that would work better without the comma.

    Well, there will be connection problems, you’ll occasionally have to re-start the relationship for no reason, and there will be a monthly fee.

    Don’t even get me started on the achievements.

    Oh yeah… This is so insulting isn’t it? I would cry myself to sleep every night if someone said this to me. It’s so creepy and sexist, don’t you guys think? 

    Cases like this one are not worth posting on here, because they aren’t offensive nor are they sexist. 

    Stop crying so much and you might actually be able to play a online game one day.

    Thanks for the help, Bro.

  • Krista Roscovius

    You’d make a half-way decent point, if you didn’t simultaneously come out sounding so trollish. Cut the sarcasm and just make your point – the rest of it just ruins it.

     lolz! Thats GREAT! XD

    Haha, you’re way more amicable than he deserves.

    You’re a good person.

    Other comments have acknowledged that this message is nowhere near as bad as the vast majority, but no one else decided to judge the poster as being too sensitive or unable to play online.

    I’m really not sure how you could be on a blog about female harassment, scroll through about 20 examples and still manage to repeat the carefully documented mistakes yourself. You’re not trying,

    Thanks for making me lol! *HUGGLEZ!* ^_^

  • Alexander Mutegeki

    Herregud, Björn. This is like saying “he wasn’t sexist, he was being real nice – ya huueer!” See what I did there?

  • Alexander Mutegeki

    Whether his comment was sincere or not, I imagine it was put on the site because it shows a pattern. I sure as heck don’t get told that I’m beautiful or have a beautiful – And I happen to have it on good authority that i DO in fact have am I beautiful are is!

    *you’re; and that would be cute if it was a little kid

  • http://www.facebook.com/tigerpanda13 Amber Elizabeth Heald

    That’s kinda cute. It can go from cute to not so cute quickly, but this in and of itself is kinda sweet. Just appreciate that he likes your voice, that he thinks you dressed your avatar well, and he likes that you have some common interests and leave it at that.
