On a social media platform this week, a dude stumbled on the profile of a lady and decided to chat her up. This is an account of the discussion that followed between the dude and the lady. Real names have been changed to hide the identities of those involved.
Emma: Hello Ronke. How are you today?
Ronke: I am fine
Emma: Your profiles says you love reading. What sort of books do you enjoy?
Ronke: If you are serious about me and you want to be closer to me, please send me a card for us to talk more on phone
Emma: Serious? We have only just met and all I am doing is chatting you up. Serious ke? I just want to be friends
Ronke: *Thunderous silence that fades slowly into the void*
That was where the discussion ended. Of course, Dude was so ticked off. I found this very hilarious. In my opinion, he was about to get conned. Social media sure makes for interesting engagements. Do you have an interesting story from your social media forays? Please share below.
