African Princess? Moi? I don't think so!

I have this thing with African men. No wait a minute, that doesn’t sound right. African men have a thing for me. That doesn’t sound right either. Let me start over.

I have been a member of Friendster since 2004. That’s where I met theboyfriend. Apart from that I have been receiving tons of messages from African men. Some were lewd, some were weird and some I don’t even understand what the person was trying to say. Whenever I get these messages I would forward them to my fellow colleagues and we would have a laugh and they would tease me mercilessly about how only African men are attracted to me. Like hello???!! I don’t send out vibes that shout, “Oh please marry me and take me into your tribe and let me give birth to 15 children!”

I posted my picture but dammit I don’t look like an African Princess so I don’t know what the attraction is! Below are some of the messages that I had received. It’s only Tuesday (time is craaaaaaaawling). I figure u folks could use a good laugh.

4th message

What a beautiful picture u have here, I believe that the life we all are living is so short that we need serious attentions from the opposite sex, That is to say, My life is full of love and i'm looking for someone to share it with. I hope you will also believe with me that AGE ia all about numbers and figures and it gat nothing to do with love and friendship. if you will agree with me, the strong fundation of any relationship is based on trust and mutual understanding between the two partiesinvolved. Let me enlighting you a little more about myself. my name is EBY, and i'm from Africa. i'm 6"3 tall with black hair and brown eyes. yeah least I forget i'm 28years old don't mind the age that is in my profile my friend put it there. i'm single, never marry before. i believe in living life to its fullness and by sharing my joy and pains with that queen that is lacking in my kingdom, who will understand me, whom i'll treat like a queen.

I'm intelligent, easy going,open minded and above all i have sense of humour. if all i have said about myself is what u are looking for, my dear don't fall to drop me a note,so that we will start from there. my e-mail contact is XXX@yahoo.com. hoping to hear from u soon. i promise u, u'll not regret it. i'm in KL to and this is my number XXX-XXXXXXX

EBy

These are only a handful of messages that I have received since 2005. There are funnier and weirder ones like this Namibian guy who told me he has a lot of money and when I didn’t reply his message he wrote, “I now know money is not everything and that you are not looking for men with money”. Like WHAT THE FUDGE??? LOL!

don't be fooled, it's the new 'nigerian scam', instead of email, they target friendster, myspace, etc. but it's still a compliment, they think that you have money.

so does that mean black is the new black?

First:
You f*cking loosers!!!! You people must have nothing to do but post trash online!!! Who cares who said what to you??? Infact you're a damn racist!!!!

Second:
Do you belive that africans marry people to take them to their tribes so that they can have many kids? FYI, you bloody malaysians have more kids per family! How ignorant are you? Plus, who can blame them? Malaysia is damn BORING!!!!

USELESS FREAKS!!!
