Some goofy looking guy sent me a crappy form email, which irritates the stuffing out of me. It is written in broken English and I'm suspicious that he is a scammer. I opened another email from a dude who looks like he could be my grandpa who wants “friends with benefits”. I’m sorry but there aren’t enough rufies on the planet to make that happen, grandpa sorry! I'm in my 40's -- not Betty White, this old man surely needs new trifocals. Or maybe he thinks "friends with benefits" is some kind of health care plan. Either way, I'm out.
Is this really my life? REALLY? Maybe the "crazy cat lady" gig is a better idea... I like cats - I don't love them, but it does sound a hell of a lot better in this moment. My expectations aren't altogether unrealistic: somewhat attractive, a nice guy, the ratio of teeth that he has is greater than the ones he doesn't. Is that so much to ask for, I don't think so. Maybe cats are the way to go.
Oh ok, here is one from some guy who is my polar opposite telling me how much we have in common. Ya… I don’t think so Mr. Nascar, mullet man we don't have anything in common and I'm not going to drive 2 hours to meet you just to go to the tractor pulls just so I can tell you to your face.
Hmmmm.... cats are clean, and although I'm allergic I could take allergy medicine...
I’m hoping for better prospects when I check out the guys who have recently looked at my profile. There are two new “lookers”, a shirtless guy who looks like he is maybe 20 and has multiple piercings on his face, and a super scary dude. The scary dude has dark, long and stringy hair and his eyes look like they could burn a hole right through me. Out of curiosity, I click on his profile… ok perfect… he is a witch… I’m not making this up and I’m not judging either, but it just isn’t my thing. I’m home alone tonight and now kinda creeped out.
Hmmmm.... I bet my dog would do ok with cats, ya I'm sure he would...
Just when I was about to give up hope of finding anyone resembling normal, a new email pops up in my inbox from a nice looking guy who seems sincere. He is a couple years older than me cute, well-built and his profile talks about romance a lot. The email he wrote is respectful and he even sounds maybe a little bit shy (Wow, does this guy know what he is getting himself into?).
