Bulk Mail Booty Call

I received a "booty call" email late last night. That's not uncommon. What is uncommon is that this one was sent by a near stranger and it came as bulk mail.  Let me explain....

Let's call this gentleman Q.  I "met" Q on AM and we had a few short message exchanges on AM and a few get-to-know-you email exchanges. The "relationship" never reached the point where I wanted to chat with him via Messenger or give him my GV cell number for phone calls or text. In short, I knew it wasn't going to go anywhere.  My side of the correspondence stopped soon after it started and his continued with invitations to meet for sex from time to time.  All were ignored and received no response.

But he doesn't give up easily.  That's ok.  I don't mind.  Hitting delete on an email is no big deal.

Last night, however, I received this:

Yes, it's an invitation to meet at his place this weekend. How is this different from all of his other attempts?  This one was sent to multiple recipients! I got a bulk mail, form letter booty call request. Wow.

Let's take  a look at Q's chances of getting lucky with this approach. First, I can say that his chances with me are 0%.  Even if I were not "off the open market," as I am right now, I would not respond positively to this. But what about other women?  Maybe someone won't notice that it was sent to multiple people. Maybe some women like that.  I can't identify with that, but who knows?

What I find particularly interesting is that, from his perspective, he really has nothing to lose, especially if he's sending it to women he's made contact with before who have not met him for sex. With a minimum of effort, he can thrown his line in the water in the direction of several women.  Maybe he'll get lucky. I read the sex blog writing guys talk about how it's simply a numbers game. Hmmm.  I'd be very interested in hearing what some of you men out there think about his approach.

Come to think about it, I think I will respond to his email.  I'm going to ask him to let me know if anyone hooked up with him from that email.  I'd really like to know if the bulk mail booty call approach works for men.

You're welcome, Prowlers. I'm happy to do a little research on your behalf.

Hi-larious...seriously, who does that? I wonder if he realizes...

So Will, you seem to be coming down on the side of "this approach will not be effective," right? LOL.

Well, he sounds like a LOT of fun, but if you're not going to accept his generous offer, I can't decide which alternative approach to recommend: Send Dauntless over claiming that he got the email by mistake - or - organize a bunch of women to respond so he thinks he's hit the jackpot?

Sure, it's a numbers game, but only in the sense that you have to be adding numbers that are more than zero. The right way is: 10% + 10% + 10% + 10% + 10% + 10% + 10% = 70% chance that at least one lady will meet me.

In his case, though, it's more like 0% + 0% + 0% + 0% + 0% + 0% + 0% = 0%.

I cannot imagine this will work for the guy but yeah, it is kind of a numbers game. It is SO much easier for a woman to hook up than it is for men and on sites like AM, the odds simply are not ever in a man's favor. But, as we say in the south, this is just a dumbass move on his part!

OMG Kat that's too funny! Now, he's the stupidest affair dude in the world or the smartest! Not sure which one.

I would simply say " did you hook up with any of (put the exact number of women). If he don't get what you mean, then YA he's really dumb.
