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.....................
