L: Capitol Heights, MD/P.G. County
First Impression: Inquisitive. “Did they all move to another planet, or perhaps their own private island somewhere??? It seems like you always here about Cougars, yet where are they at???”
Endearing Quirk: An old-fashioned sensibility. “NOTE: I will NOT respond to any gmail email addresses, so don’t waste your time.”
Heart-to-Heart: Knows what he wants. “Not overly concerned about looks . . . A picture would also be appreciated, since you have already seen mine.”
Strictly Platonic: Wanted: Gay Man to Hang Out With My Girlfriend
S: “w4m” [technically, m4m]
L: Washington, D.C.
First Impression: Sporty sweetheart. “Now that football season is upon us, I will not be able to spend as much time with my girlfriend as she would like.”
Experimental Streak: Str8 bois need not apply. “What I’m looking for is a gay man to spend Sundays with my woman until the Superbowl is over. I don’t mean to discriminate against you straight men but, quite frankly, I don’t really trust you. Besides, you’ll probably be watching football, too.”
Heart-to-Heart: Sick of the run-around. “Serious replies only.”
Missed Connections: You asked why your pants were wet on Saturday morning
L: Adams Morgan
First Impression: Met cute. “So we met on Friday night. I was a drunken mess…so I have no idea how it happened. But I asked you and you said it was at Duplex Diner.”
Fashion Plate: Details, details, details. “[Y]ou asked me why your pants were wet…but I had no idea.”
Heart to Heart: A good listener. “Maybe your name was Thomas? I think that’s what you told me when I asked.”
