If you read yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, you'll know that over the past few weeks, I've been called beautiful by a couple of people. One (1) person I had never met before the day they commented to me about this. The other, a childhood friend that I never expected would ever say something like this, to me!
You'll also know that I found it shocking that anyone would ever think, never mind say anything like this to me. Even so, life has proven to be fairly shocking, because more and more people have been giving me compliments.
During a recent conversation with my youngest daughter P, I mentioned to her that I certainly didn't need to join a Christian dating site of any sort, because I was being hounded by men on Facebook (FB), daily. She laughed when I said this, but I wasn't joking; I was serious.
I went into my my messages and read to her some of the names of men who had contacted me. Please understand, I hadn't even read the messages from most of these men, because I feel that most of them aren't even on the level. Nope, these men are not my FB friends, just men who have somehow found me!
P asked what I was doing to find these men. I explained to her that I hadn't found them; they had found me! And, I don't know how they are doing this.
I went on further to say that all I do is post mainly Christian stuff, as I normally do.
For some reason, men must find Christian women attractive. It seems that many men want a Christian woman in their life. Why? I'm not really sure. Maybe because they feel that Christian women can be trusted more than those who are not committed to Jesus. I really can't say.
I just know that I am approached almost daily.
After our short conversation, I decided to open up a few messages to read to her and to me, because as I said, I hadn't read any of them. One was almost like a chapter of a book, so I did not include it here. However, I decided to copy and paste the messages (without using names) from two (2) men who approached me on FB.
Here they are:
1) Hello how are you doing... You're such a Beautiful woman. Believe me i can hardly believe you're single. I mean, you are too good to be single. How come all of the cute men out there haven't found you and stolen your heart? You've got stunning looks and believe me if i have your kind a lady i'll never retire looking into your eyes. will be looking forward to read more from you and maybe we might have something in common....hope to hear from you soonest..
2) Hi cutie, how are you? Permit me to compliment your beauty and smile. Honestly, you are gorgeously beautiful and you have a cute smile, so infectious! A kind of smile that can warm up the heart of a stranger like mine. I would like to get to know you more, become friends, see how compatible we are and then go from there if you wouldn't mind. I look forward to hearing from you. Until then, take care!
Remember, these messages were not from men who were FB friends of mine; these were from men I do not know. I cannot even call them acquaintances!
There's more to be said about this, but it will have to wait until tomorrow.
Until next time...
