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!
your profile keeps crossing my path

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!]
