thanks for sharing, buh-bye
To paraphrase a fellow blogger, I was shopping for men. I came across this within the content of a profile of a very physically attractive man:
I’ve spent the last two years recovering from a severe dependence on a sleep med. I’ve been a recluse for about three years (three years ago, I quit smoking and ended a long relationship). Before all that, I was social, gregarious, and charming (I should probably start smoking again). Right now, I live on 75k/yr of trust income, but I’m not employed. I expect to inherit roughly four million someday.
He wrote a lot more in his profile, all of which was appealing. I just think this piece of info is too much to share. Thanks for being blunt and completely upfront about your past meds addiction and recluse status. I’m glad you re-emerged. It’s nice that you have such a generous trust to live off of and that you’ll inherit millions one day. (Hey, V, he could be our bankroll to do the base jumping off la Tour Eiffel. Actually, we’d need something that doesn’t have such a pyramid-y shape… I’m thinking physics and the law of gravity and angles…). Sidetracked… Yes, anyway, such personal information might best be saved when a firmer base is established with someone. I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me, but seeing that made me want to run the other way.
I mean, seriously, if you’re going to break out some panic inducing info at least wait until you are on a first date going wrong to scare them away. That’s what I do.
