I Hope These Pixels Are Attractively Arranged

by V. Blake

i guess romance and pragmatism cancel each other out
and no one else seems to find this confusing.
i resent the percentage of my life
i have spent trying to take a hint.

just say what you mean.

i need a girl who wears practical shoes
and walks up escalators.
someone who understands that being well-traveled
says that you are well-traveled,
and says nothing more.

just mean what you say.

after all, it is easy to be clear
when your depth is visible to eyes above water.
i think i'd rather meet a puddle than an ocean
if i couldn't see one shore from the other.

just know the difference.


Author's Note: Online dating is weird.

Dating is weird period; doing it online merely reduces the dimensional overheads.

"i think i'd rather meet a puddle than an ocean if i couldn't see one shore from the other." - great lines. I'm more than thankful I'm not in the dating pool. Good luck.

I got a kick out of this. Dating is weird... But, I'm quite fond of my ocean.

I had a whole slew of over-hyped comments on this all lined up; but I killed them. What it simmers down to is this: I agree.

Considering the current state of my marriage that began online... Good luck!
