Anyway, I sent him an email saying that I was interested in chatting and he sent me a terse note back saying, "give a call," followed by his phone number.
That's very strange to me and not just for the lack of capitalization and punctuation.
I thought about it and decided I would wait and call him today after work, so I sent him an email asking a few friendly questions and telling him I would call the next day.
He responded asking for a photo of me because he wasn't a paying member of the Atlasphere and so could not see my pictures. I sent him links to my Facebook page and my blog which has videos.
I never really worry about sending "good" pictures because my looks are sufficiently within the range of "good looking" as to appeal to a broad population. Even if you have a particular type you're attracted to, I generally offer some amount of appeal. And if you're an Objectivist trying to date Objectivists, well, then you could do far worse than me in the looks department given the limited availability.
(Was all of that indirectly vain enough for you to understand that I am aware of the fact that I'm attractive to most people?)
Anyway, he writes back, " "
I just have to laugh at this because what on earth could he be looking for in a mate? Because of the lack of information in his profile, I can't really begin to speculate about where the incompatibility lies. Of course, I imagine that he's looking for someone with a unicorn horn or walks about in a haze of glitter and sparkles. (Who isn't looking for that, really?)
On the other hand, I absolutely love this exchange. It was simple, direct, and efficient. I wish everyone where that way!
So, on Atlasphere, I met one nice guy who is now geographically incompatible, I got shot down by one mystery fellow, and the third person I wrote to hasn't responded. That isn't a very good track record for a dating site!
i think he isn't too serious about dating.
first clue, he is not a paid member.
second, he answered short and as if letting you know, call me, send me your picture, i have no time to getting to know you.
i don't know what these types of people want. maybe they just like the idea that there are people out there that want to fell "wanted" because other people are starting the communication and so they feel attractive themselves.
at least you learned quickly that he wasn't for you

And you're right, though: if he is able to make a determination about our compatibility based solely upon looks, then he's right. We aren't a good match at all.

I meant to say, "I'm not broken up about it."
