Dating a Male Writer #3
by Ron Gavalik on January 17th, 2014

In the world of a single male writer, one is sometimes drawn to online dating venues, much in the same manner hobos are drawn to businessmen on the street. Where the hobo seeks a pity handout, I've sought a warm body to fill the occasional void, you know, when I'm not writing. In all honest, that's really just another form of pity.

But what kind of woman does a guy like me go for? Some would say an artsy girl with tattoos and a kicking pair of Doc Marten boots. Others might point toward my professionalism and suggest a lawyer or power salesperson, someone who really knows how to wear a pantsuit in that sexy way. Then there are others who think I'm the hard charging beatnick type. They have it in their heads that I require a shamed former coke fiend with a great ass and cleft lip.

Sadly, none of these people fit the profile.

What gets this bald man going is a set of curves, big eyes, and a sarcastic personality that's doused in kindness. There's a lot to be said for humor inside a confident package. I once glimpsed a dating profile of a woman who truly impressed me. The clever line that set the hook stated: "Pizza is like sex: even when it's bad, it's still pizza."

Unfortunately, she was far too young, but I did write her a quick note. "Pizza is phenomenal and so are you." Her response embodied simple kindness. "Thanks. It really is."

What can I say? Wit is charming.
