Note: this guy had messaged me 2 times when I had my old OkCupid account and once to my new account. He had stalked me for awhile before sending me a new message to my new account.
“well, I know this will be the third time I’m messaging you and trust me, this will be the last. I don’t even know if you’ll ever read it but here goes.
I probably bombed extremely hard on the last 2 messages but it’s hard for a guy to say the right things to a beautiful girl. People say the first impression means everything and that puts a lot a pressure on the guys too.
Well, this is me. From the moment I looked at your pictures and read your profile, I thought you were amazing. I’m the type to tell you my favorite candy is skittles because I would love it if you brought me candy all the time. I rather stay in on a Friday night with a good book than drink now. I’ve watched everything on your list of favorite movies/shows and every single one of my friends had compared me to Marshall from HIMYM. I would also love cute messages because I would always respond with a :) too because I can’t help it if you make me smile.
I also have a story to tell you… you may have heard of it or you may not but this story is something I’ve never forgotten.
Once upon a time,
A king gave a feast for the loveliest princesses in the realm
Now, a soldier who was standing guard saw the king’s daughter go by.
She was the most beautiful of all and he instantly fell in love
But what is a simple soldier next to the daughter of the king?
Well, at last he succeeded in meeting her and told her he could no longer live without her.
The princess was so taken by the depth of his feeling that she said to the soldier
“If you can wait for 100 days and 100 nights under my balcony at the end I shall be yours.
With that the soldier went and waited one day, two days, then ten, then twenty
Each evening the princess looked out and he never moved.
In rain, in wind, in snow, he was always there
birds shit on his head, bees stung him
but he didn’t budge
At the end of the 90 nights, he had become all dry, all white.
Tears streamed from his eyes
He couldn’t hold them back
He didn’t even have the strength to sleep.
All that time the princess watched him.
At long last it was the 99th night,
and the soldier stood up, took his chair, and left.
do you know why he left?
One more night and the princess would be his but she might have broken her promise and that would have been terrible.
It would have killed him.
This way, at least for 99 nights, he had lived with the illusion that she was waiting for him.
and this is why I’m deleting my profile.
I hope you’ll live a long and happy life.
