at times i like to think that i get along with men more than i do with women.
frankly, sometimes men are just more fun to hang around with - this is a fact.
but as much as i enjoy the non hassle that is a guy/girl friendship, i have one ongoing beef with the online male species.
9 times out of 10 i get really irked when a man uses emoticons in emails, tweets and online chats.
[ editors note: mom, an emoticon is a text representation of a facial expression - i.e. : ) ; ) : p or : ( ]
for whatever reason i think it makes the typer of said emoticon immediately less masculine and at times i feel that it is condescending to a woman.
"hey lady, you look cute today ; )" <----- GROSS.
"don't worry sweetheart i would never hurt you : )" <----- LIES
"it's 2am, want to come over? ; )" <----- JUST TELL ME TO COME OVER
gentleman friends, potential suitors, CLIENTS, please don't online wink or smiley at me, ever.
and if the smiley face is actually animated, or makes a noise? you're dead to me.
do NOT emoticon me.
am i bat shit crazy for even thinking this, let alone letting it bother me so much that i write an entire post about my hatred for men using emoticons?
so ladies and gentleman, what's your take on men using emoticons? yay or nay?
