Truly Dodged a Bullet

This is an example of when I should have listened to my first reaction and NOT given a second chance.  Paul first contacted me several days ago.  He told me he like my profile and felt like we were looking for the same things.  I was so relieved that he sounded like a nice, normal, level headed person that I really didn't read his profile all the way through.  Had I read it I never would have replied at all.
The second e-mail he sent he mentioned going to see WWE Raw.  He made a joke about his "white trash" taste in television.  I responded saying (jokingly) that I'd never judge someone's taste in TV as long as he didn't think Linda McMahon would have made a great senator.  This should have been my first clue as to what was to come.  He jumped to Linda's defense and bashed Blumenthal.  Now I respect opposing views but since I don't agree with this guy I figure the best thing to do would be to ignore him.  When I didn't write back, he wrote again the following day changing the subject.  I still had nothing to say so I wrote a simple "hope you had fun at WWE".  He wrote back asking to exchange numbers.  At this point I decided to revisit his profile.  This is when I read the following;
"I am not a fan of Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Soros, Gore or any other delusional progressive morons.  I am also a faithful Catholic.  If you don't believe in God then we don't have much in common." According to his profile he also hates country music.
Upon reading this I decided this guy was WAAAAY too conservative for my taste.  I don't discuss politics or religion on dates but if this guy feels so strongly then eventually it would cause friction.
I wrote to him, to be fair as I hate when guys just start ignoring me with no apparent reason.  I basically stated the following;

Hi Paul,
In reading your profile further, I really don't think we have much in common.  I have very liberal views in all aspects of life.  I also believe in living a spiritual life, but am not a religious person.  I repect all views and beliefs and believe in simply living a good honest life.  And I love country music.  I wish you all the best.

The response I received was this;

"Sad that you are a liberal, wish you would wake up from the fog that "everything should be equal" is somehow a realistic idea.  Here's a clue sweetheart, the whole Obama ideology of everyone should be equal is DUMB.  If life was equal, what the **** do we need a food chain for?"

Since he sent this earlier this evening, he has since changed his profile headline to read "no liberals please!"  Good riddance!

Another One Bites the Dust

The one promising prospect i have found so far on POF has jumped ship.  He is a teacher and part time DJ, and we are looking for the same thing.  We've been e-mailing back and forth for a couple days.  Things have been going well, he didn't seem like a creep or that he would send me any inappropriate photos.  I decided to take initiative and send my personal e-mail and phone number.  A couple days later and no response.  Tonight I logged into POF and looked to check the e-mail had been sent.  He did not appear in my inbox, outbox, or in the user search.  Looks to me like he's off the site.  I can't help but wonder if I scared him off.  A simple no thanks will do.  This just proves once again that if I think someone is too good to be true, they usually are.

I am like a yo-yo with this stuff.

I guess I just like the punishment.  Here I am fully engrossed in round 3 with Plenty of Fish.  The freak parade is in full swing.  I'm being hit on by just about every type of person except the kind I'm looking for.  Here is an excerpt from my profile;
I am a very laid back, fun loving girl. It's been a while since I've been in a relationship. I'm looking for someone who is willing to date, see where it goes and if all the stars align a long term commitment would be great. I am not into playing games, so if you have a wife or girlfriend please look elsewhere. I am also not here just to "hook up". I want to get to know you first! 

Apparently this leads guys to write things to me like:

Woah baby you are adorable.
Hi there cutie stuff.
Hey baby, what are you doing tonight?
