Lobbing the PWK Bomb
Daunt here. We have a smart bunch of readers so I thought I would solicit some advice and generate a little discussion.
Recently I decided to check out a few of the more popular dating sites. I created an account using my DauntlessD persona and just tried to be playful. After week or so and sending out a few messages etc, I generally had the feeling they are all quite similar to Ashley Madison; the ratio of men to women allows women to be pretty choosy.
The whole vibe of the sites began to wear on me and one evening, when I was feeling a bit surly, I received an unsolicited message from a woman. I responded, attempted a little banter, but my heart wasn't in it. Then I began to grow irritated with some of her questions. It was clear she was used to men falling all over themselves and answering any question and providing more photos promptly. So I did something I wouldn't normally do, I sent her the link to my All DauntlessD page. In essence I was feeling a little testy and I was saying, here take this and go away. Then what happened was pretty comical.
Her: That was TMI web site Omg
Me: Well it's me. Read DauntlessD Exposed. This is a side of me I won't hide from someone I'm seeing.
Me: Read The Art that is Woman. It's one of my favorites.
Her: Ok... you're scaring me
And that was that. I stopped hearing from her. She officially ran for the hills.
So, here is what I would like you all to chime in on. Upon meeting a new love interest, when should I share this blog and my writing with them? I'm very curious to hear your thoughts and especially the difference of opinion between men and women.
