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.
