I should save this post for tomorrow when my brain isn’t so fatigued from work… Meh.
In an effort to help my friend Bug meet someone, I got the bright idea to put a post up for her on Craigslist. My thought was surely not everyone is weird on there and maybe this will help her break the ice when it comes to dating. What I didn’t anticipate was having to put an ad up for myself in order for her to let me place hers.
So I was high on my recent successes via Fetlife – if you can call a spanking and one guy’s blue balls a success – and figured I could craft a well thought out ad that would bring all the boys to the yard. Er… It brought a lot of something.
Here’s what I learned:
It doesn’t matter how detailed your post is, you’re still going to get weirdos. If I didn’t ask for a picture of your cock, I don’t want it. If I told you a little about myself in the ad, tell me something other than your desire for phone sex.
Persistent can turn into irritating in 2 emails. If I don’t respond to your first email, or your second, or your third, I’m not interested. Nothing against you, you’re great. I’m not attracted to you for a variety of reasons (some shallow). Maybe I’ll die bitter and alone for not giving you a shot, but that’s a chance I’ll just have to take.
People email in text speak for some mind-boggling reason. I’m trying to determine if you’re someone who – per my post – I can carry on intelligent conversation with. Your use of text speak doesn’t endear you to me in the slightest. It makes people seem dumb so spare me.
If I’m interested and I want to meet, agree or cut the cord. I’m not up to being strung along if you’re not wanting to meet face-to-face. Be upfront about what you want so I can move on.
Bug didn’t do much better so I’ll call this a failure. Epic, if I’m being honest.
Now she’s got us signed up for speed dating in 2 weeks. Can’t say I’m excited about going, but she tried this so I’ll try that. Can’t I just attract people with my stunning beauty and rapier wit, though?

Thoughts and goals
It was suggested that I do a video cam of myself doing a stripping and post it on an amateur porn site. Is that an adequate substitute for stripping for a crowd of me? Would you want to watch? Weigh in on this.
I will approach a cute stranger this week. Conversation starting? I can do that.
Post 2 stories this week (one a late song of the week)
Edit 3 chapters in the 3 days I have Off.
Buy this super cute corset dress I want. I want it so bad.
