When I Need A Pick Me Up, by my friend Ryan King

Monday, March 31, 2008

Oooooooohhh Snap!

This just in!! I was shot down by one of the 3 ladies to whom I wrote for happy fun date times. It was the polite form letter rejection, so that's alright then. According to her profile, I'm 3 years above her age requirements.

Okay, so I've learned after my cookies expired that you need a Match Dot Com account to be able to see my profile. It's so dramatic! When you click on a link to it, you get this blocker page that entices you to sign up to read more about "HIM". Tee hee. I'm "HIM".

So I'm going to post here the pertinent information;

about me and who I'm looking for:

I'm described as a good, fun-loving guy, which must be true since I like to laugh. I'm looking for someone who wants to come laugh with me. Let's carve out some "us" time--make ourselves a no-stress zone in the middle of New York! We deserve it! :-D

for fun:
I'm a hobbyist writer and have a dramatized audio adventure which is online even as you're reading this!

favorite hot spots:

Coffee or tea shop, in a corner where the plush furniture is. Near the brickwork wall, under the speakers where Morcheeba, Sade, or Alison Krause is playing.

favorite things:
Right now, I'm hooked on eclairs from Hot & Crusty. I've had other eclairs, but these are by far the best. So, yeah. Food is my favorite thing (for now). Theater is making a comeback too.

last read:
I'm finishing "Wicked" by Gregory Maguire. Finished "T is for Trespass" by Sue Grafton. And I'm caught up on at least 7 monthly Marvel and DC titles.

Well? Is it sad beyond all reason? Did the rejecting madame laugh herself into an oxygen-deprived coma, with only enough strength to choose the polite rejection letter option? Or would you give me a tumble?

It's boring, right?

Remove your income immediately. Leave it blank. That information is only for very intimate conversations. It's not the casual browser's business.

Alan said...

??? Is it chasing them away? They should get to know me before they know how broke I am?

Alan said...

Ok, deleted, and I deleted the income area of "About My Date" section too. Maybe the mystique of omitting the income will intrigue viewers. "He must be so rich that he doesn't want to say how much he has!"

Siigghhhhh ... these frikkin' games one must play.

Where's MY Q to come rescue me from this crazy, redeemable life?

I LOVE your profile! You make yourself seem very approachable and fun (which you are). I would respond to this in a heartbeat. Seriously.
