I had no idea...

I was not sure what would come of anything, but on a warm July evening in 2006, I put out an advert on Craigslist for a one night stand.  I had never had one before, and it had been about a year since I had last had sex. I just wanted to see what was out there, if anything, but I did not have any high hopes.  I got a lot of crap responses; men who didn't meet any of my criteria (age, preference, weight, otherwise), men who would not send a picture, men who could not spell, ... this list could continue through the at least 80 responses I got. But there was one...One that completely stood out from anyone else, despite his asking it to. It was a response from someone who I could just sense was my equal - someone who was sincere and looking for what I was as well.

His reply:
Subj: Please be Real

I know that sounds awfully rude, but you never know these days --  even the best-written, most intriguing post could be a front for a bot or more web-cam advertising...

Anyway, if you ARE a real girl (a la Pinnocchio), I would love to chat with you and see where things go. I lived in ____ for many years until about three years ago when I finished grad school. I've just moved back into the area (____________) and haven't really made any good connections yet.

I'm sure you've already received about 30 responses to your ad and will probably get another 50 while you're reading this one -- I can't say or do anything here and now to convince you that this is the only email  you should pay attention to tonight -- but it is. And how silly would you feel to ignore that advice and be wrong?? :-D

Here's a pic -- I'd love to see one of yours and maybe chat a little so I can demonstrate my wit and charm... er, that is, so we can get to know each other. ;-)

Talk to you soon?

So..I took the plunge and I wrote back.....................
