A friend of mine, we'll call her S, met a real doozie online. She said the guy was attractive and smart in his profile; flirty and nice in communication. In his profile, he says he's done everything, seen everything, hooked up just to have sex, etc., but is now looking for an intellectual connection.
They get to emailing, he asks her out, she agrees, and then he comes out with: "I feel like I should be up front and let you know that I'm not looking for something serious; more of a sexual connection." What? If you can understand that and want to get a drink, let me know." He writes back, "Sure, if you want to get a drink' I'm up for it." She is confused (Why did he put quote marks around "drink"?
