I’ve gotten a few discouraged e-mails over this last week from readers (I think it was the “let me sniff it” message that really put a damper on peoples’ confidence in the world), so I thought I’d do a “nice post.” Here are a few sweet or clever messages/profiles I’ve received/seen in the last few weeks.
There ARE good guys out there. Their profiles may not make us simultaneously spit out our drink laughing while simultaneously dying a little inside…like most of the ones I post – but they exist. And we should be glad they do. Here’s some proof:
This guy is reacting (in a humorous way) to the comment in my profile about people who don’t know how to correctly distinguish/use “you’re” vs. “your.” Using that in his message not only let me know he DOES know the difference, but that he actually READ my profile.
Ok – I admit – this is tres cheesy. But, c’mon… how can you not chuckle at it too? I know it’s one McNugget away from the kind of pick-up line I post on here and make fun of, but it made me giggle, so that counts for SOMEthing. 🙂
So – there you have it… just a few examples of decent dudes out there.
And these are strangers. …In my own circle of friends and acquaintances, including the singles group I coordinate, there are tons of great single men. Thoughtful, funny, intelligent and generally not prone to sending messages to women saying things like, “I’d hit that.”
Quality, I tell you.
SO – rest assured – for every smarmy man you see on my blog, there is one kind-hearted non-smarmy man out there shaking his head in shame over his peer.
In unrelated news… I am seriously considering coordinating a speed-dating charity event in the coming months – a la “AndAllThatSass.” (Meaning that it will be awesome). I will screen candidates and plan the whole event the way I think speed-dating should go.
Any of my readers want to participate? You need to:
– be in your 30’s or 40’s
– live in the Houston area
– not be a jerkface
Pretty simple, eh?
If you want to participate – use the “Ask Sarah” form to send me a brief description of yourself (include a link to your online profile, if you have one), and I’ll need a photo or two as well.
I’ll only have room for 10 guys and 10 girls, so – act fast! I think the event will occur in mid-May. Again…stay tuned…
