Oh, yes. HEY. When a girl is going through a dry spell, she does what she has to do.
After one drunken night with INP, I laughingly said, fuck it. I’m making a CL ad. And it’s going to be honest. It’s going to say what I’m truly looking for in a man.
Would you like to see what I wrote? If you were cruising the W4M section a few months ago, you might have seen it.
I am a single American girl. I have been in Korea a long time. I speak some Korean, but my listening is better. I like smart guys. Glasses are a plus. I want to meet a nice, ‘nerdy’ guy.
I love computer guys or engineers. Nice guys finish last? Not for me!
I am serious about this ad. If most girls don’t find you sexy…I probably will.
If you have had more than two girlfriends in your life, you are probably not what I am looking for.
Can’t wait to hear from you.
It wasn’t the nicest thing I’ve written. At all. But, it worked. I got messages from guys who’d had more than two girlfriends begging me to give them a chance. I got messages from guys asking me if I’d accept them if they weren’t engineers but liked to read. I got messages from men that asked me if glasses were a requirement, because they’d just had LASIK and didn’t wear glasses anymore.
A majority of the messages asked if I was serious. They couldn’t believe a girl like me could exist out there.
I wrote back to every single one, except for the single penis shot I got.
I got over 150 messages asking for my time.
In the end, I got a lot of no’s. Either they were married, lived in America, just visiting Korea, or not compatible.
I got a few yesses, that I met, and then they turned into no’s.
I got one maybe. A maybe that I was supposed to meet tonight (my fault that it took so long, not him) and that I am really excited to meet.
I also got a lot of funny stories.* A few of which I’ll share here.
*One of them leads to a marriage proposal, so there’s always that option, should I choose to take it.
