A “Man’s” Type of Surgery (Part 2)

Background: You might remember “Tim” from my most recent post A “Man’s” Type of Surgery (Part 1)“. If not, do take a read.  Two months after that first IM session, he wrote again.  Apparently neither of us remembered the first conversation so we started again…

(blue = boy; pink = girl, black = my thoughts)

i work from home 1 or 2 days a week and love that :-). i am actually off from work until nov 28th so enjoying being home

the big Vwow, that’s awesome! why are you off for so long??

well i took some vaca days and some sick days because i had some surgery done so i am housebound for a bit in the recovery mode
oh, got it. I hope you’re ok?
At this point, this started sounding familiar, so I’m frantically searching in my email for the downloaded copy of the IM session I had sent to a friend at the time, to see if it was the same guy!
im feeling ok thanks and it was pretty routine surgery and elective thank goodness !! i guess you would call it a “mans” type of surgery !! LOL
yup, same guy!
oh yea, i remember, we spoke 2 months ago
finally went in for the big V LOL yes i had some surgery done back in september also
this is my year for getting things done LOL

My Thoughts: Really?  OMG.  Apparently this guy feels the need to share about all of his penile issues.  Either that, or he’s just trying to get me to talk about his penis with him.

My Response:  Same as Part 1 — End IM session immediately.  Block user.

 

A “Man’s” Type of Surgery (Part 1)

Background:  A nice guy IM’d me on Plenty of Fish, and I accepted his IM. I normally receive the IM’s, rush to check out the profile, and if he “passes”, then I click yes!  “Tim” seemed nice enough, so I accepted, and this was our conversation:

(blue=boy; pink=girl)

hello how are you?scissors
i’m good, how are you?
glad to hear it :-) im doing ok thanks
enjoying your day?
yes, a bit tired today, but otherwise, good!
good i am tired also. must be the weather !!
why are you tired?
i was up and down all night last night and didnt get a good nights rest
oh, that’s too bad
had some surgery done tuesday so i have not been sleeping well the past 2 nights. 
oh no! are you ok?
im feeling a little better thanks. it was pretty routine surgery and elective thank goodness !! i guess you would call it a “mans” type of surgery !!
oh, ok :-)
i won’t ask anymore!
it is late for my age but it was for a circumcision so it takes longer to recover from than when dont to a baby boy
we guys have it so tough LOL
really??
yes
vey interesting
mine was actually a partial circumcision so it is not as bad as having the entire procedure done as an adult thank goodness
my Dr actually did say it has become more common now for adult men that were not cirucumcised as babies to get it done as adults
that’s surprising. 
yes it has been decreasing over the past several years since it is not necessary to be circumcised and is very painful and traumatic for the baby
but most males in our generation have been circumcised so to be uncut can make a man feel awkward
right
i did it for cosmetic reasons . i just always thought i had too much excess foreskin there and was self conscious about it so i finally decided to go in and have some “trimmed” off basically
got it
also it could be somewhat awkward with women the way it was before because most here in the US have never seen an unciucmcised man before
true
have you ever seen it or encountered a man that was not circumcised?
yes
wow interesting. you are not the norm thats for sure !!
was it in photos or in person?
My Thoughts: WTF, seriously?  Is this appropriate conversation for a 1st IM session?? I asked “are you ok?” the way I did, so he could share or not share.  Apparently he was dying to share about his new “assets” (or lack thereof).  And, didn’t pick up on my one word answers.
My Response: End IM session immediately.
Note: See Part 2 for the next part of this saga!

White Pants

Background: “David” and I emailed a few times on Plenty of Fish.  He asked me out on a date, and asked for my number to coordinate.  This is what happened next (David is in grey, I’m in green):

My Thoughts: Are you kidding me?  It wasn’t bad enough to tell me you were fantasizing, but I have to know it’s with another woman?

And, yes, at some point I knew where this was headed. But, I figured if this is how he is, I’d rather know it now!

My Response: Delete!

Update: I encountered Mr. White Pants again… take a read of the post: Round 2 with Mr. White Pants
