Eek! Not another one! Let’s get it straight: LinkedIn is an awesome site for NETWORKING and Business! I’m 3000 contacts strong ! I’ve recruited students, business partners, and podcast guests…. And yes it’s great for NETWorking… But Not for DATING!
Yeah… I know, I know! The dating culture died with the swipe right, swipe left APPs. Hook up culture and STD’s are taking over society… but come on! This … This I refuse when I get emails like the following:
Good day to you and how are you doing today? I was actually searching for an acquaintance when I came across your profile.I must confess you are pretty and this is me being honest and not just mere flattery.I hope no offence is taken, I understand LinkedIn is a business networking medium and not a dating or social networking website and I don’t intend to use it for one.You caught my eye,I am interested in communicating more and sharing more about me with you and hope to learn more about you too that is if you are single and interested in communicating further. I do believe everything is possible if we put our mind and heart together just like I believe that good things can be found in the least places. Let me know if you’re willing to communicate more and I will write you to tell you more about myself and I look forward to hearing from you soon.Have a Blessed week ahead-Some Weird Dude on LinkedIN
Good Day?? That’s so bizarre who says that? It sounds like one of those Nigerian Email Schemes! And he spelled Offense WRONG!!!! Ughhhhhhhh!!! Over it!
I’m sure if I met this dude in person he would never tell me these things face to face… “You are Pretty??” OK can we say SOCIOPATH??? HELLO!
