attention whore me v. sane and balanced me

there are two me’s on kcupid. me A is an attention whore. when she uses kcupid, she indiscriminately gives every cute guy 4 stars after briefly skimming their profile. she obsessively checks the kcupid iphone app for new quick matches. she writes cute witty messages to tons of guys (at least she thinks they’re cute and witty) even though she never actually considers whether or not she would actually want to meet them in real life. she’s starving for attention. 

Me B is thoughtful and laid-back when it comes to kcupid. she considers the messages she gets with attention towards the future. could i actually see myself meeting this guy in person? what would we talk about? she browses profiles carefully, reading in-between the lines. she only contacts those she knows she would want to meet.

The problem is when Me B has to deal with all the shit Me A stirred up.

I hate getting long messages from guys I messaged or rated when I was starving for attention. Balanced and together me realizes that I’m not even really interested in these guys. My inner attention whore was totally just using them so she could feel wanted and connected. Then I feel like I have this obligation to message them back because they put so much damn effort into exploring my profile and writing this long message about how they want to get to know me. 

Me A is about to lose her Kcupid privileges.
