Is insane overuse of ellipses in an online dating profile an acceptable reason not to respond? We're talking 20-30 occurrences in a profile that is not otherwise terribly robust. Is he just tremendously fond of dots, or does he not know how to complete a thought? If it's the former, I suppose I could get on board with a festive dot motif (assuming I could redirect this interest into other contexts - say, a festive polka dot dress for FAB), but the inability to commit to a thought - particularly in a setting that is dude's one opportunity to tell me who he is and what he's about - feels like a legitimate cause for pause.

Or maybe I just need to introduce him to the em dash.
