breaking the ice

Alright, so this one is actually pretty straightforward, and may contain the best line I’ve ever written to another human being, in terms of being simultaneously self-aggrandizing and self-deprecating.  If I could do this in reverse, I would beat The Game at picking up women.  Unfortunately for women, I don’t know how to give a backhanded compliment without sounding like I’m doing it wrong.

I don’t know when this woman changed her profile, as I haven’t looked at it in over a year, but on further inspection, none of that skydiving stuff seems to be there now.  What’s Up With That?

Hi there!

I just wanted to say that aside from jumping out of airplanes (something I’ve never done nor do I expect to do due to the klutz factor), I agree about how those other activities are enhanced when you have someone to share them with. I mean, heck, with the right person, almost anything can be enjoyable (save perhaps a Kenny G concert).

Anyhow, you seem pretty neat and not at all harsh on the eyes, so I figured I’d say hi.

Also, I know lots of random facts that are exactly that. I won’t tip my hand now, but suffice to say, you won’t see it coming and then you’ll wonder if it was worth it.

take care,

[I don’t know if I broke OkCupid’s computer by using the phrase “Breaking the Ice” in the subject line, but there were no “IceBreakers” listed for this email.]
