I believe first meeting should be something casual like an afternoon coffee or tea, or a simple walk to get to know each other, followed by a trip to France, about a week traveling in the far East and finally a luxury holiday resort on a secluded tropical island near the Great Barrier Reef.

Ok maybe we'll save that for the second date.

What a hoot!!

And all the while he is racking up points in the "makes me laugh" category! I imagine he is fielding winks left and right!

So Faithfool...you going for it? Or just passing time on Saturday night?

A bright sparky one for sure.

Good for you! On this, you must keep us posted! That was as entertaining as SPF.

I do admire witty exchanges... And added bonus is that there was information in there, assuming he doesn't want to fail his own quiz: he expects to pay for a meal, he will not drone on and on about himself, he might suggest a walk around the lake...

Clever boy!

Nah, he'll be swamped with the bling crowd.

Doubt if he will ping back, but if he does I'll let y'all know.

Why no mention of the post-date flaccid selfie?

Big points for that, no?


Buzz- The word you are searching for is 'Space-Ranger.'
Woody- The word I'm searching for, I can't say, because there are Pre-school toys here.

omg.....that profile is a winner! Almost makes me sorry I gave up OLD (not!)

But seriously, if he DOES respond, he sounds like he'd be a blast to be around even if the fireworks didn't go off, ya know? Great sense of humor, and we all love to have people like that in our lives.

Welllll..... I did thank him for the laugh.

Oh come on......I will send you candy if you "up" your reply to him with the equivalent girl version!!!!!

Ideas: Make-up (caked on...), hair (choked ya with her Aqua-net during appetizers), heels (they double as a self-defense weapon due to 8-inch spikey heels).

We can help ya....you will blow him away!!!!!!

Edited:
PS - I just canceled my membership this morning. This makes me sorry I did....I would definitely do something like this in my profile.

I was thinking of Cheesy Nut man. LOL.

@ EvenKeel, nah, not going to try and out-clever that one. I sent him a nice message with my email address so he will contact me if he's interested.

I don't have the energy for chasing.
