So I woke up this morning to this gem in my OKCupid inbox.

"YOU LOOK LIKE A LITTLE BIT OF MICHAEL MOORE WHO IS MY FAVORITE FILM MAKER?
and where in OK city do u live?"

So first of all caps? Really?
Secondly you don't know if Mr. Moor is your favorite film maker or not, either way that's an insult to me since I really don't care for him all that much.
Third. You spell out every word (OK is alright since it's a valid abbreviation) except "you" that's just maddening to me.
Fourth, you actually started a sentence with the word "and" that is just wrong.

Let's change this so I'd respond.
If you'd said Kevin Smith, I'd have overlooked your bare bones profile and might have replied with something resembling interest. Caps I can forgive because I know that sometimes people don't notice it's on, and some people need caps in order to see the words. "You" on the other hand is just very damn lazy.

Rewritten.

"Hello, I wanted to let you know that you look like my favorite film director Kevin Smith, he's just so dreamy with his big beard and puppy-dog eyes. Do you wear trench coats by chance? I also live in the OK City area and was wondering what part of town you live on to see how easy it would be to suggest we go for coffee or a quick Mooby burger. I think I'd like to get to know you better. I'm sorry my profile isn't filled out more, but I'm both leery of putting too much out on the internet, and don't really have time to fill this out the way it should due to my busy employment. I hope you have a nice night."

I need coffee.

As a sidenote, a co-worker is also on OKCupid and viewed my profile, this week at work as the potential to be embarrassing.
