I meet the vast majority of the men I date on online dating sites. And unlike many of my fellow online daters, I don’t always talk with guys on the phone before making plans to meet them in person. There are a couple of reasons for this. First, I just don’t think you can learn much about a person you’ve never met by talking with them on the phone. And second, I just really hate the phone thing. I’ve written about this before. I think it’s awkward and weird and I’d rather just skip it.
But if a guy wants to talk with me before we meet then I’m not going to say no. I’ll play along.
Well, I just received a voicemail from a guy who’s been trying to schedule a date with me. We were supposed to get together last weekend, and then, blah blah blah. Anyway, it was the first time I heard his voice.
And now I don’t want to go out with him at all. He has what has got to be the least attractive voice I’ve ever heard. Seriously.
I know these things are kind of subjective, some people like certain accents, other people like other accents. But I think most women would agree with me on this one. His voice was just so yucky.
Anyway, this is a new one for me. I’ve never not gone out with someone because his voice was repellent to me. But I’m seriously considering passing on this date (prior to the vm I was really looking forward to meeting him, btw).
