I’m loving this site.
I’ve been trying to think of how to keep the old fogies at bay on my new dating site, since I can’t block a population from contacting me, only specific members. So I’ve updated my profile with a few “requirements.” Please note this list is much harsher than it is in my actual profile, but oh so much more fun.
You’re between 33 and 40, give or take 3 years. You’re not old enough to be my dad.
You despise winks.
The words “the great outdoors” don’t appear anywhere in your ad (unless you’re referring to the John Candy movie). In fact, you hate the outdoors and would much rather prefer holing up in a movie theatre watching all three Godfathers (well maybe the first 2) in a row, or in a museum looking at some crazy exhibit.
You’re not a white guy who describes himself as Native American. So you have a drop of Navajo blood, you still look like a white guy to me.
You’re not using a picture of yourself with your ex torn out. Your arm is not obviously draped around your ex, your ex’s arm or shoulder or hand complete with wedding ring is not in the picture.
You don’t include “working out” as a hobby.
You don’t wink.
You know how to spell. You know basic grammar.
And last but perhaps most importantly:
You do not have an Asian fetish. You’ve not narrowed your search to all Asian women. You’re not a non-Asian who’s really into martial arts. You’ve not included a plethora of pictures of yourself with Asian people in Asian restaurants near signs with Asian writing. You don’t plan on writing to me in what you think is Chinese, Japanese, or Korean.
Let’s see how many people my list drives away.
