Hi5 Messages

I’ve been feeling a little down and disillusioned lately. In the meantime, a week or two ago, LondonBuki had a post about some of her weird(er) hi5 messages, so I decided to let you read couple that I got in the past that had me rolling with laughter or just going wtf:

1. how are you doing. Your face looks pretty much familiar. I think we've somewhere b4, i forgot. anyways, i just wanna make friends, lets start by introducing ourselves. I live in ***. i'm in college. i wud love to know more things about you too, if u dont mind. Holla back when u get this

(The often used “You look familiar” … lol… that brings to mind a Nigerian party I went to last year. A strange guy came up to me with the same line “Hey girl… you look familiar”… I laughed for a moment and said… “Nah sweetie… you’ve never seen me in your life. The worst part is that you’re still using 2005 pick-up lines… I think you’d have a better chance if you used something a little more recent.” The guy started laughing and was like dang girl… that was cold. He didn’t get my number, but at least got my name… that was something… oui?)

2. Hi dear ! how are you ? have you MSN? i have with webcam :-) ******* i want to see you kissesss

(How incredibly exciting… this guy is just a tech. whiz… not only does he have MSN… he also has webcam… I’m stupefied!!!)

3. I am **** ***, a graduate of economics, presently running a master program in university of *****.i am a christain,i worship with living faith church. i work with ***** com.i am an exciting and interesting person who believe strongly in a heathy friendship.i would appreciate if you could oblige to have me as a friend.i await your swift regards...................

(He’s in a masters program and he can’t spell properly… but who am I to judge… maybe he didn’t want to wow me with too much vocabulary initially… I’m terribly impressed… he works, and is a Christian… that’s so hard to find these days)

4. I want fuck u because you is sexy girl

(That’s all the reason you need eh?!)

5. Hi Overwhelmed, Whats going down, I was just so overwhelmed by ya best friend,especially getting to know she is beautiful in and out.could you please do me a favor to hook me up with her.Just play a nice role for me and tell her i'm nice in and out too. I believe i am. Regards.

(lol… a dude I don’t even know wants me to hook him up with my best friend … the fact that he’s “nice in and out” is enough reason… who would’ve thought?!)

6. Hi there cute girl, I coulndt resist your profile, so I send you this email. I who send it is ***** from Sweden, but just now I work in Kuala Lumpur. Please let me know more about you. Hugs and kisses from your new boy firend *****

(I didn’t know a single hi5 message automatically made someone my ‘boyfriend’… but then again we learn new things every day… no?)

7. Hey wassup mah!its funny,i got you, the beautifullest woman on my hi5 list but i cant even talk to .what should i do to get in touch with you prettyboo!Im running outta ideas and patience...its like we were suppose to meet up with eachother allready! what you think!? am i asking too much!? or should i stop hoping!? ********!(keeping my fingers cross)

(oh my gosh… he called me prettyboo just like I like it… I can’t wait till he starts slapping my ass and calling me ‘down-ass bitch’… ahhh… finally my dream ghetto romance…)

8. Hi, I am ** from the netherlands(Holland) I am 44 years and wokring as an accountant. I am honest, romantic and sportive I am divorced for more then 10 years now I am searching for a nice woman that is honest friendly and romantic for being friends. My hobies are swimming, biking, travelling, driving my car, tabeltennis, nature, hiking and watching movies or dance on good music. Of course I also love romance with the one I love, I mean I love hugging and kissing PLease e-mail me to **** From there I can send pictures. I hope we can become friends

(I always did want a father figure boyfriend… and one from the Netherlands in Holland(not the one in Lagos State). I mean I’ve had guys who ‘danced to good music’… but never one who ‘danced on good music’… I think this guy might just have the secret of the universe in the palm of his hands… )

9. Hi!! I am mexican boy!. I would like to know you. I think that you are a interesting girl. I don't a lot of english, but I will try in order to chat with you better. Kisses

(I don’t recall any part of my hi5 profile where I mentioned being an ESL tutor… but I guess my mama is right… to whom greatness is given, greatness is expected)

10. Can i print up ur pictures to use to jerk it babe? What do u say?

(Well… since you asked so nicely… NO FUCKER!!!)

11. hi i'm not from your past but find you attractive and would want to be friends with you. i suppose i guy finding u attractive should not be new to you. i would be interesting however to find out how you handle it. it rather ineteresting you prefer not to answer about your status. may i ask why. out of curiosity though i also believe being friends is knowing you. looking forward to hearing from you soon. take care and stay blessed.

(Awww…. What a sweetheart… since he pays my internet bill and bought me my computer, I am obliged to answer his questions about my relationship status among other things)

12. I’m still loving your legs. Would you let me to cover them of kisses?. Would you let me to kiss you even between them? Kisses dear ... many kisses.

(Oh my gosh… this guy is a revolutionary… he actually kisses girls… and in between their legs too… Isn’t this terribly exciting?!)

13. When God created you, I believe that it was only you he create that day. You look so natural and beautiful. I just want to let u know that ur pic are killing me if i have the chance to meet a wonderful girl like u in my life i will blow the sky open and i will do anything anything to make my girl happy. Let me hear from u my lady.G. ***** from Amsterdam.

(I think this guy should be arrested… he might be a terrorist… blowing the sky open for my love and all… lol… I’m just saying)

14. Nice to meet you.... Nice profile you've got there.... What cupsize do you have? they look so yummie ;-) Do you use msn? Would like to chat and or cam with you.... ;-)
Mine is *******

(I believe my La Senza and Victoria Secret helper now owns a hi5 page… I guess they have new bras in and want to reserve me a pair or two… what other explanation could there be for wanting to know my boob size?!)

16. salut beaute je vous souhaite une bonne ann�e 2006 et une bonne sante je voudrais votre numero de telephone merci de votre comprehension

Favoured Girl said...

Hey I'm first!

Favoured Girl said...

LOL @ those hi5 messages! I used to get loads of them too, one time but now I've restricted my profile. I've had marriage proposals from both men and women. I've had random guys tell me that God revealed to them that I am their wife. I've had guys asking me out one minute and the next minute asking me to hook them up with my friend! The wonders of hi5! LOL .... Keep them coming love, I'm seriously laughing here...

(Oh by the way I took my pic down after 12 hours. I figured that was enough exposure for now! Your comment was hilarious, thanks!)

My Heart said...

LOL!! I don't get people for real! But you know what? I actually know someone (to my utter shame) who replies these admirers and hooks up with them.

Simply Gorgeous said...

Wow- that is some real off the wall s@%. Seriously, why did you put up and disclose so much information about yourself? Overwhelmed, you have to be careful there are so many psychos out there. However, the messages were entertaining.

Overwhelmed Naija Babe said...

Putting youtube on blogger:

* Go to
* Search for the video you're looking for.
* You'll probably find more than one version of the video you're looking for.
* Click on the link to the one you think you're looking for.
* Once the video starts playing, look to the right of the page (or beside the video), you'll see subscribe, tag, url, embed, added by...etc.
* Click on the box beside EMBED. It will be highlighted. Right click on it and copy
* while making a new post, use the "Edit Html" mode instead of the "Compose" mode. Paste your embed.

Hope that helped Madmoiselle!

Later girl.

lol, wareys

Idemili said...

LOL@ your Igbo! I'm not on any. Someone tried to get me interested in A Small World but it's just so cliquey, with professionals nattering on Conde Nast Traveler style about where to go on holiday, dropping money hints, yakking on about politics, talking like they know people...UGH!
The annoying thing is, they do know people. They are all connected.

Patricia said...

LMFAO @ "Bonjour to gi na ndi 'psych ward' gi"!!!! chei, too funny :)

ijeoma obu iheoma said...

LOl... some of these people seem very removed from reality..

The Life of a Stranger called me said...

gosh girl - those were some lines. I also liked your response to it - or should i say your thinking out loud version of their statements.

Vickii said...

Lol at these messages ... and I thought I had it bad! Why is it always the people that can't spell, have the cheesiest chat up lines and say the stupidest things that message you. I've yet to hear a sentence that begins with 'let me tell you about this hi5 message I got, he seems really nice ...'.

Do guys get stupid hi5 messages from girls too?

UnNaked Soul said...

wetin be ur Hi5 url/id? no run away oh.. LOL

BeReal said...

Hehe, so hilarious here. I never believe their scams. There're too many garbage profiles on Hi5, so I won't use it. I'm using now. This is an honest millionaire site. As a successful business man, I would like to meet equally friends and share experience with them.
