Darcy, I hope you know CPR because you've taken my breath away
I received this myspace message the other day and i thought i would share it....
When I first saw your picture, I said to myself, "Oh, she doth teach the torches to burn bright" !!!
I hardly thought that there existed such a woman outside of a picture frame, or the covers of a romance novel. You are my North, my South, my East, and West; You are my working week, and my Sunday rest.
There could have been no two hearts so open; no tastes so similar; no feelings so in unison. Hold me closer than you'd ever dare. I'll be waiting for you, deep inside my heart. My heart is a habitation, large enough for many guests, but lonely and chill, without a household fire. I long to kindle one!
I'm looking for a first mate to sail the choppy seas of life with. We can charter our own course together, and weather any storm that comes our way. If this baits you, then drop me a line.
P.S. If you're in a serious relationship with someone, or if you're not interested, you don't have to respond. If I don't hear back from you, I won't contact you again. However, if you're curious, but timid, I implore you to be bold, and take a chance. As Helen Keller said, "Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing."
I especially like the boat reference, as i enjoy being out on the water. I am bold, but a 41 yo balding man doesn't do it for me. I will write him back the following:
I appreciated your message, but in the end i must decline. I think our age difference (15 years) is a little too much, even for me. Also, your message, yes full of wonderful analogies of a life together, smacks of a form letter, with my name inserted. In order for real contact to occur, the message must incorporate something from my profile.
Now i am wondering if he will write back something snarky...
