Wannabe paramours: Go ahead, favorite my tweets. Like my Facebook status updates. Follow me on Instagram. But please don't hit on me via LinkedIn, because that is not only creepy but pathetic.

Danielle sent us this LinkedIn message exchange with Henry, a stranger who was curious to know what else she did "apart from looking good?" Which was probably pretty easy for him to figure out as LinkedIn is a professional network; your resume looms larger than your profile pic.

A brief poll amongst Jezebel staffers found that most of us have used social media to flirt. (Obviously.) But LinkedIn flirting seems wrong. Professional networking already feels icky enough; let's not make it worse. Plus, no one wants to admit they're on LinkedIn, anyway.

This guy was weird, used bad grammar and was probably physically unattractive.

If this guy looked like Bradley Cooper and owned his own company (and toned it down a notch) she would have been all over it.
