Timing really is everything

Unedited conversation off a dating site is below.  Other than the one cheese ball line… what woman doesn’t want to hear this stuff?

Some days I feel like timing (and location) really is everything.

Him: Hi, we’re looking for different things on this site, but my goodness, are you ever attractive!

Me: Ah, thank you very much. What is it that you are looking for?

Him: A woman as intelligent and independent and attractive as you, who also wants children. After not wanting them all my life, I find myself much more open to the idea. Not that I wouldn’t date you if you lived in [exotic locale where he lives] or if I was back in [non-exotic location where I live]. Everything about your profile is perfect 🙂

Me: Wow that is a lovely compliment. Thank you so much 🙂

Him: My pleasure, beautiful. I just got a call from a 20-year-old-supermodel. She wants her smile and her figure back!

Me: Wow, you are a charmer, aren’t you?

Him: Perhaps. But let’s be clear about the sequence. First comes the beautiful woman that inspires the charmer. Then comes the charm.

Me: See? More charm. Happy to inspire it.

Him: And you do each time I look at your photos. I wish we lived in the same place so we could meet.

    • Possibly. How much of our time do we spend with bruised hearts? It seems like a lot. By the way, when you reply in here to a comment, it doesn’t necessarily go back to the original commentor. If you reply in the notifications thread, it does.
