Continuing the theme of How to Ask a Gal Out (the “Don’ts”), I now present the “Do’s”…
He said, “I just spent the night with Kernut!”
That was the title of his post to the singles group list of 700 people!
Holy Shatner! Considering it’s been a while since anyone could claim that statement, I wasn’t sure what to think.
His message to the list continued…
Ok, not like THAT. (Pity)
I am sitting in the airport in Albequerque, waiting to fly to South Dakota so I can “move” there. I came across the email with a blog link and have had a fabulous time reading old posts. She educated me on boondocking, took me to a brothel, gave me dating advice and explained why she is still single, although I honestly still don’t understand the last part. (By the way, I was married once. We had his and hers scissors. It helped a lot but not enough).
Anyway, if you haven’t followed her blog, you should. She is quite refreshing to read.
For the record, Kernut, even though I have used both fabulous and refreshing in this email, I swear I am not gay. I hope to meet you one day, although I am sure you will still choose singledom! And I agree, the 3 date rule is utterly stupid. Guys who believe it should be relegated to being brothel regulars.

And that is the nicest review I’ve ever received.
Ok, it might be the only review other than what my dear and wonderful friends and followers write on Facebook.
Promoting my website with a kind review is awesome. Yes, I can be bought.
I didn’t know him at all before this, but now I’d like to meet him.
And that, folks, is Lesson One in How To Ask A Gal Out.
Lesson Two is below…
In stark contrast to the “Don’t” emails in this previous post, I’ve received a couple lengthy and thoughtful email requests for a date. Both were after many long email exchanges over a period of several weeks, in which they acknowledged reading my material and enjoying it.
First awesome thing about this? They read my stuff before they asked me out or indicated an interest in me.
– Note to Would-be suitors: If she writes anything at all read it, forcryingoutloud. Go deeper than what a gal looks like and find out about her. How can you know the package wasn’t dropped during shipping unless you read the box???
Second: They liked my writing.
– I don’t need everyone to like my writing, but it sure helps if you like my personality before we start dating. Compliments go a long way, especially if they’re about something she does, her intelligence, her sense of humor, whatever. Just not about her boobs, not until you see her naked.
Third: Much as the review above, the requests were laced with humor.
– This is hot stuff, guys. Hot stuff.
Of course, these gentlemen are on their own journeys, none of which happen to be in my area. At the moment, anyway. 😉
