In light of my recent Mancation failures, I had to write a couple break-up letters …
You have failed me. It’s just not working out and I need to find another way to look for dates. I know we’ll be together again someday, just not right now. I hope you can understand and we can remain friends because I’d like to visit sometimes. It’s not you; it’s me. #sorry
I had hundreds of messages within hours of joining your site! You seemed promising, until I opened the first emails from fellow Companionless Cupid-ers.
Although I’m sure it would be a record-breaking experience I don’t want a 72 year old man to “**** me all night long”, nor do I want to know how that would even be possible.
Also, if your profile name contains the words “50 Shades of…” attached to some stupid word like your name… please stop. You are not “50 Shades of Dave” or “50 Shades of Matthew”. You are “50 Shades of Dumb” and “50 Shades of So-Last-Year”.
One last thing … the men on okcupid need to come up with new pick-up lines. #seriously
Reeling from the backlash of these break-ups, I called my Mother for some sound advice …
Mom: You should date John Cusack.
Me: I’ve never met John Cusack.
Mom: He lives in Los Angeles.
Me: A lot of people live in Los Angeles that I don’t know.
Mom: Well, he’s on Twitter.
Me: What would I tweet him?
Mom: You could “say anything”.
Me: Good one, Mom.
So here it goes, this one’s for my Mom…
Dear John Cusack.
My Mom thinks we’d be a great couple so I put our photos side-by-side and she seems to be right. (See attached photo). After looking at the aforementioned photo I’m sure you find it hard to believe that I’m still single, but indeed I am. Because we don’t know each other, I want to share with you some reasons that we should go on a date:
- 1. My mom likes you.
- 2. We both love Fishbone.
- 3. We both have a tendency to stand in the rain while people take pictures of us.
- 4. One of my favorite movies is “Dirty Dancing”, and I’m sure you like it too. Who wouldn’t?
- 5. We both live in Los Angeles and are on Twitter.
