Alright already. So it's kind of lame. What can I say? The Bay City Rollers were hot stuff in my day - wayyyyy back in the 70's. I suppose I could have gone with, "It's nine o'clock on a Saturday..." But it's only 430.
Here I am. Still at work. Guess I will be here until around 11 tonight. Anybody wanna come by for some fun on the conference room table? At least it's not so bad. I get the place to myself at night.
I think I mentioned earlier that I had started corresponding with a woman the same day I upped my membership to gold. Well we have set up a brief meeting for next week. She seems genuine and very nice so I have high hopes she will actually meet me. Now whether or not she runs screaming once she sees me is a whole 'nother question!
I think I was amazingly lucky to get such a positive response so quickly. But I do attribute part of my "luck" to a couple of other things.
First of all, I think it helps that I'm not just looking for some quick and easy sex. Guys, no matter what you might read in a woman's profile, I can pretty much guarantee that they are NOT looking for just a quick bang with no strings attached. And if really think they are then,
A) Unless you truly have ten or more inches hanging between your legs and can last longer than five minutes you can probably forget them.
Do you REALLY want to sleep with them? I wouldn't even if I was wearing three extra-thick condoms.
And C) You probably think a woman with the word bi in her profile is looking for both men and women to have fun with. The word bi in a profile means the woman has a husband or boyfriend that wants a threesome with another woman OR it means she's a dumb lesbian that thinks bi means TWO women together OR "she" is really a guy just screwing with you.
Second, I sat down and typed out a letter to her. I didn't "craft" some nice sounding form letter and then mass mail it to all of AdultFriendFinder.
Third, I was pretty specific when I did set my original search parameters. I would rather make a heartfelt effort to find what I really want than take a scattergun approach and hope I get anything.
Finally, I used a little humor. Ummmm. Okay. To be honest, _I_ thought it was humorous. Maybe it was just stupid. But hey, she wrote me back didn't she!
I will offer some advice to everyone who is having trouble making a connection. Ask a friend or acquaintance here to critique your profile. I asked someone to do that for me but he hasn't had a chance to do so yet. Why? Oh I don't know. Maybe because half the profiles I read have typos? And a lot of the profiles read like they were written by Eeyore. I mean, can't you just hear him, "I'm foorrrrty-fiiiive. I'd like to find sooommmeonnnnne. Anyonnnnnnne. Pleeeease write to meeeeeee." Who wants to take a chance on that?
Wouldn't you rather have someone who is dynamic, energetic, upbeat, a winner, has a sense of humor? Me too. There's no law that says you can't change your profile. If it's been six months and it's not working then maybe it needs to be fixed.
Be persistent too. I know a woman who wanted to work for one of the Big 3 auto companies. She sent each of them her resume every month for a year until she finally hit Ford at just the right time and they hired her. So run your search on a regular basis.
"Kiss me and smile for me
Tell me that you'll wait for me
Hold me like you'll never let me go"

Are you leaving on a jet plane? Don't know when you'll be back again? Oh, babe, I hate to see you go...|
