ok, this one is really about match.com

if i call you and try to set up this date, LET IT GO TO VOICEMAIL. do NOT pick it up after half a ring and answer in a chinese accent and say "who" and make me say "it's tim from match.com" and holy motherfucking jesus i already feel like enough of a tool, please do not further compound my awkwardness by actually picking up the phone and making me talk to you. let me take a breath, deliver my rehearsed voicemail message trying to sound as casual as fucking possible and call me back later if you want. i will let you go to voicemail too. i want to meet you, i want to date you, but for some reason i do not want to talk to you. i am great in a room, but these things die on the phone.
