As she clicked on another profile, she noticed this guy was cute. Not handsome in the George Clooney way, or hot in the Chris Evans way, just cute. He had kind eyes and a nice smile.
She scrolled through the preliminary details 6'5" (nice, he's tall) , a few extra pounds (go figure), 36 years old, has a good job, a car, and doesn't live at home. So far just a normal profile, but then she read the first few sentences of his description... This was different. He could actually string two words together without sounding like a Neanderthal.
For a brief moment she thought, "how ridiculous". Then she took another look at his pictures and noted a few things. He has a sense of humor (he must to dress as Mr. T for Halloween. He must be smart (he worked at NASA for crying out loud). He seems pretty witty (who else would style their profile in the third person perspective from the gal's point of view). And he must be confident enough to think she would actually read his entire profile (which apparently she just did).
Now all that's left is for her to respond to his message or send him a quick note to say hello and introduce herself.
It doesn't interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for - and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart's longing. It doesn't interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool – for love – for your dreams – for the adventure of being alive.
