I tried the online dating thing. Here’s the best response I got.

imgres
His name: Johnny Tuna.
Hello there. Please allow me to introduce myself. I am Johnny Tuna. I recently starred in my first major motion picture called “SOCRATES’ ASS.” It’s on You Tube. I should win an Oscar for that performance. I would love to meet you. Get to know each other better. We could go to dinner and come back to my place for a night cap. Wouldn’t that be fun? I can give you all the wine you want. Then when you are feeling frisky we can get into our birthday suits and you can star in my next film: “THE FAT MAN FROLICS.” Just imagine yourself in my king size bed rolling around in my ham hocks with the sweat of a fat man rolling off my body and on to yours. As the night moves into wee hours I can show you the sex positions that made me famous. You can massage my feet and suck my toes. I am known for doing the hump and the dump. Will you honor yourself and have hot steaming sex with me? I am in the Bronx.
Well, he had me till “the Bronx.”

OKStupid Gets So Close, and Yet, So Far

She regrets knowing what GTL is and wants to see the world through a childs eyes.

Hi,

Someone once told me that I maintain a child-like wonder. I was impressed by this phrase and shocked by the next thing they said which was, “You’re too big to be in my blanket fort.” Four year olds can be very picky.

I decided to not try and make sense of any of it. Now the struggle is to not cling to the rocks on the river of life. A white guy with dread locks told me that so it feels really mystical.

I don’t know what GTL is nor will I search for it. Bad things happen when you search for unknown terms. I search for it and the next thing I know the FBI is at my door. They really don’t have a sense of humor.

In conclusion, I enjoyed your profile and think we’d get along.

Cheers,
Anthony

My message to this lady of the ‘Net was over 100 words. Here is her reply:

Hi Anthony,

You have a 4 year old friend, have read Jitterbug Perfume and quote Living Colour in your profile. I think we’d definitely get along :-)

That’s it. I wrote back because she noticed my Living Colour quote. Who doesn’t love Living Colour? No future Internet love of mine that’s who.

She mentioned in her profile that she is waiting to be perfect before she writes her novel and that she wants it to make children better. Sigh.

No need to wait for perfection to start your writing ambitions. You can hire the guy that edited Jitterbug Perfume to work with you. I did. He called me some ungodly hour and gave me some profanity laden advice. I think he was right, but I have no idea how to sell a book. Maybe I should have thrown in some vampires? Does your writing have vampires? That’s what the kids are into. Morons.

The fact that you got the Living Colour quote and think that is a good thing means we’d absolutely get along.

I did hire Alan Rinzler. It made the book better but I have no idea how to sell it. Add vampires and hot teen action?

She replied.

Ha. That’s wild you know the Jitterbug Perfume guy. I want to know what he said.

Come on… a 16 word reply? And one of those isn’t even a word. It’s more of a sound, just a quick burst of escaping air.

If your writing is the cure all for the declining mental health of the youth of the world then you’ve got to write. You owe it to the children. Whitney Houston said they were the future. She also said crack is wack so I trust her.

We’ll have to meet up and I’ll tell you what the editor told me.

Final score: Anthony close to 300 words. Internet Girl: Account deleted.

On this week’s episode of OKCupid Messages You Couldn’t Make Up….

url

Do you have a favorite place for veggie food around the city? I do like blossom as far as purely vegan stuff, but prefer non-western places like Awash or Hangawi whatnot, which tend to have great veggie options that aren’t as processed.

I live at E124 and 2nd, so I have no issues going above 59th. I’m, sadly, rarely above 53rd, where my job is.

I belonged to a fiction writer’s group for many years – and still write several times a week. It’s a good outlet.

Enjoy Philly.

Cheers,
Tim

Ps. Even if you’re not interested, you should totally sign my petition to make all federal prisons vegetarian on the White House website. I started it today at work because things are it a bit slow . . .

https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/make-all-federal-prisons-vegetarian-save-budget-costs-and-improve-prisoner-health/lBDQR3nt

 

Dear Tim:

Thanks for the info! I’ll TOTALLY sign your petition–because I know the whole Gitmo thing has gotten complicated, and women across the country don’t REALLY need the right to choose. Let’s start with something simple. Like vegetarian cuisine in prisons. I can feel the HBO special starring Anthony Bordain. I think you’ve really got something here.

p.s. I’m standing outside your apartment right now. Do you have a bathroom I could use?

OKStupid Presents: The Thread That Died

The Return of OKStupid!

Lost and Confused Signpost

Before I was ready to quit online dating the second time around, I scheduled one last date. She had the look I liked, a career, and she agreed to meet for drinks. We met at a hipster type bar on a Tuesday.

Bad Date Great Story editors swing by SwoonApp launch party

photo(1)

It was a warm green tea margarita and sushi filled Tuesday night for us here at BDGS.  We were invited to the SwoonApp launch party at Haru on Gramercy and we were ELATED to see our friend/author and online dating guru Laurie Davis!  Laurie is the author of Love at First Click and while she was busy signing books and strutting in another one of her FABULOUS dresses, Jessie and Emi were meeting other dating bloggers and trying out the new SwoonApp.

If your favorite thing about How About We is thumbing through prospective mates giving a thumbs up or down, this app is for you.  We spent– WAY too much time flipping through it.

Try it out and tell us what you think!

HuffoPo shares news: Bang with Friends Booted from Apple Store

Apparently the Four Square app that “Force Closed” every time I sneezed was okay to distribute, but Apple is not about nurturing your friendly booty calls…

Three reasons why you’ll only find your next relationship online

Screen Shot 2013-05-08 at 1.32.34 PM

1)  Sure people used to meet in real life.   Back in a time when people had unplugged ears.  In this day and age, people are accidentally walking into fountains while texting their friend a YouTube video of a drunk cat.  They’re not eye open, listening to every cute thing you say at the grocery store secretly falling in love with you.  Sorry.  Get online.

2)  You have met everyone in your circle, and their circle and their sister’s circle.  Your life is ruled by concentric shapes.   This, “You know who you should meet,” has thus far not panned out.  Preschool is over.  Shapes should not still rule your life.

3)  It works. Here’s the thing about meeting someone in real life. Circumstances. You meet in school, at work, wherever.  It bonds you together.  It creates a safe place of familiarity, but when That circumstance changes, so does the relationship. I’m not saying it can’t work, but passengers who Pilot Sully rescue landed into the NYC river still have a yearly reunion, but should they all get married? (Yes, I know there was a couple who got engaged, but it didn’t work out! It was the ‘we went through this’ love-intense, short. Over)

 

If you are still living in the stone age you need to wake up before you die alone.

Get. Online. Already.
