The Shores of Alone
Funny story for all you bored poets, once upon a time I went to a singles get together for "The Reader", San Diego's semi alternative newspaper. Anyway they have personal ads, and this was a party put on by them, and while there you would write an ad, and they publish it for you if you want. (This was 10 years ago, ok?)
Now comes the funny part, I was walking around and no place to sit down. I saw a booth with a guy alone, I said do you mind if I sit here, (he was NOT my type, I just wanted a seat)
Well, we got to comparing personal ads, and laughed as we were looking for just the opposite of eachother in our ads. We said almost at the same time, "I would never have called you". Then he asked me out and we dated for 3 years. LOL Guess we had something in common..
Now as for the current ad, hm, I think it's hopeless. I peruse the ads now sometimes just for fun, and the men all want someone under 30..Even if they're 50. Its a losing proposition.
But it could be a fun little game..
