One of the things my online personals site asks is for members to list 5 things they can’t live without. As you can imagine, people come up with all kinds of answers. I’ve read at least a dozen guys who listed water, air, food, shelter and then a few dozen others who list their friends, family, love and friendship. My list is honest and just a little snarky. Condoms are on the list. I think that they are a helpful/insightful thing to list.
So I was just reading my email and in the very first message I received from some new guy (One I emailed first and who I think is a hotty) was this statement: “…this is kinda personal, but since you brought it up, I wouldn’t want to use condoms with you. There’s just something about your cute little body that makes me think I’d much rather us wait and get tested.”
Wow – what a line. I’m going to reply. I can’t resist. Maybe there’s a chance he’s not trouble waiting to happen. But my, oh my, what a line.
