About me and who I’d like to date

I am open to many things and lifestyles as long as people are true to themselves. Be who you are and what you like and that’s the connection I’m into. my favorite book is The Godfather favorite movie might be swingers favorite song is definitely the greatest love of all simply because i decided long ago never to walk in anyones shadow. my favorite color is aqua sea foam shame. my lucky number is 12 7/8 and if i had to choose between a long walk on the beach or unicorns i’d take unicorns. on th beach. my favorite food is cookies and if i could meet anybody it would be me in 10 years to make sure i havent lost any of my wit or charm. im not so concerned with my intelligence. thats not going anywhere.

What Went Wrong:

  • “fortunatley you wont have to correct my spelling or grammar. its probably better than yours.” (You can NOT be serious….Count the errors in these two short sentences, and then tell me who’s better at the language thing. )
  • “im pretty intellectual but not brainy or showy about it.” (You must be hiding that intellectual light under a bushel the size of a wooly mammoth’s backside, then.)
  • “my favorite color is aqua sea foam shame.” (WTF?)
  • “if i could meet anybody it would be me in 10 years to make sure i havent lost any of my wit or charm.” (It’s tough to lose something you don’t have to begin with, I suspect.)

Overall Impression:
At first, I wasn’t sure if this email’s kindergarten writing style was slyly mocking my profile comment about having to correct the spelling and grammar of most of the guys who write me, or if this guy was just a complete nincompoop who truly believed he was a good writer. After a great deal of thought and a quick perusal of his actual profile text, though, I’m inclined to go with the latter assessment.
