I am no longer testing the gator-infested waters of online dating, but Susan, bless her heart, is. Though, the dating scene in Chicago and New Hampshire are vastly different, I’d imagine, she just got the funniest, most creative message ever. It actually made me laugh out loud.
After a rigorously brief overview of your profile I wanted to let you know that I have decided to marry and divorce you inside my mind.
Thanks for all the imaginary memories. You will always have a special place in my heart.
P.S. I get to keep the beach house in Florida. You can keep the over weight cat.
I mean – is that not hysterical? It takes the all the pressure of meeting someone completely out of the picture. It’s saying “hey – you’re cool, and we might get along, but nothing in life is guaranteed.” Or something. At least, that’s how I am reading it. Sometimes things end, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun during. I don’t know, I’m tired.
The reason this message is so cool is that it also doesn’t include any of the normal boilerplate shit that people put in first messages: hey, I went to Ohio State, I love biking, I’m a software engineer and every March I go to Mexico with my Delta Tau Delta frat bros.
Anyway, bravo to this dude, for proving that it’s okay if we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
