your profile keeps crossing my path

In retrospect, I know exactly why this one didn’t get a response.  I totally dissed this girl unknowingly like three times.  [although, according to The Game, wouldn’t that make her want me more? – Ed.]

1) I see you on here all the time but can’t bring myself to write you (because you’re undesirable)

2) you seem pretty cool (as a friend, because you’re not pretty enough)

3) interests-wise (again, you’re not attractive enough)

These conjectures are based on a total hindsight analysis on my part, and not what I subconsciously projected at the time of writing this letter.  I should also mention that not all that long ago, I saw this woman at a singles mixer at Diamond Bar in Greenpoint that was organized by Word Books (where one of the girls from a previous letter once worked, with a friend of mine).  She really didn’t talk to any guys.  She will likely die alone and be eaten by her cats.  I almost went home with a British girl that night, but I am pretty sure I screwed that one up somehow.  I got her number, but I texted her instead of calling.  I am a dolt.

Otherwise, I can’t think of a reason why this woman wouldn’t write me back minutes after reading my letter.  Especially since her profile now says :

“I spend a lot of time thinking about

music, boys, silly blogs[…]”

You should also know that I did indeed rate her FIVE stars on there.  So, it’s not like I was really thinking any of those horrible things.  Maybe she was just scared at how perfect for her I am.  Yes, that must be it!

but yet I haven’t sent you a message. I can’t tell you why I haven’t, since you seem pretty damn cool and a likely candidate to at the very least hang out and have a good time with (interests-wise, i mean).

Anyhow, just dropping a line to say hi.

Hope you’re well.

[According to the “IceBreakers” supercomputer, I might have wanted to mention that we both  like sushi, vegetarian, six feet under, twin peaks, and trivial pursuit.”  I guess my friend failed to mention that to her as well, because she didn’t reply to him, either!]
