How NOT to pick up a chick in Second Life - Episode 2

So there I was, minding my own business and taking pictures (and looking damn pretty, if I do say so myself), when I had a want-to-be Lothario - one over a thousand days, mind you - IM me with a single word.

SL Lothario

[23:53]  SL Lothario: cute
[23:53]  Deoridhe Quandry: Excuse me?
[23:54]  SL Lothario: :-)
[23:54]  SL Lothario: saw you in the radar view
[23:54]  SL Lothario: excuse ME please
[23:54]  Deoridhe Quandry: Oh, all right. ^.^
[23:55]  SL Lothario: looks nice what i saw
[23:55]  Deoridhe Quandry: Thank you, I think?
[23:56]  SL Lothario: what you are looking for ?
[23:56]  Deoridhe Quandry: Looking for? I'm not sure what you mean.
[23:56]  SL Lothario: chatting..dancing....sex ????
[23:56]  Deoridhe Quandry: None of the above, thank you.
[23:57]  SL Lothario: smiles..it´s ok
[23:57]  SL Lothario: np
[23:57]  Deoridhe Quandry: Um..... ok.

And having been assured than no sex would be happening here... he settled down to chat up more women on his radar.

I think the thing I dislike most about these random chat-ups is how clear it's made from the beginning that I am both disposable and replaceable. No interest is shown in me, the individual; instead I am approached as me, the female, and if I don't pan out another female is sought instead. I'm not seeking an "any socket b into my tab a" kind of life experiences; I'm interested in interacting with people who want to know me - the person.
