Gentlemen really do exist. Well, at the very least, one does. This is a good story with a not-so-happy ending.
The other day I was searching for blog fuel. You know, the weird, wacky, creepy and just plain psycho people that can start a three paragraph rant on just about anything. I found a few of those and did indeed blog. But I also found a real winner. And by winner I mean male model winner. Not that he was my perfect match or anything, but, ooh baby!, break me off a piece of that! I looked for any excuse to send him a message and it was he himself who actually presented it! He mentioned something near the end of his profile about sending a message if a person had bothered to read that far. Well then! I sent a note commending him on a well-written and thought out profile. It’s not a literary masterpiece by any means, but it kept my attention and amused me. I wasn’t really expecting much out of this one if anything, but, hey, I’ve got nothing to lose, right?
I sent said note on Wednesday. Most guys respond within a few hours if they’re going to respond at all. Thursday went by and nothing. I wasn’t heartbroken by it, so I kept perusing profiles. Today my phone buzzed wildly at me with several communications. Wasn’t I surprised to see one from Mr Male Model himself! So I ran to my computer and logged in and there was a little un-opened envelope waiting just for me! I swear I shivered in delight.
Thank you so much for your kind message and I apologise for being so late in replying. I’ve just read your profile and I have to say you are a rare and remarkable woman….not to mention quite beautiful. Unfortunately I’ve just come out of a long relationship and I’m at the stage of my life where I’m done with casual dating. I don’t want to waste your time since I don’t think we’re very compatible.
First thing I noticed was how obviously thought-out this guy is (or he is at least making use of a passing grade in high school English). Second was the British spelling – Americans use a “z” in apologise. He must also be a genius if he can so easily recognise the fact that I am not only rare, but remarkable….not to mention quite beautiful. Though we really aren’t at all compatible, I appreciate him taking the time to write a little note rather than just leaving me high and dry. Sigh… If only we were compatible!
But for now, I still have hopes that there is a decent man somewhere out there for me. Thank you, Mr Male Model for once again proving that gentlemen exist!
