Have You the Wing?

Email Sent in by Stephen:

Dear Stephen:

I am so appreciative of you taking me out last Sunday. I don't mean to come across the wrong way but I really really like you a lot and I think I could easily see a future between us.

This might be a strange question, and I understand if you don't think it's a good idea just yet, but I have to admit that I'm curious: do you think it would be a good idea to get married? As in you and I, this week? Unusual, yes! But let me explain: I don't have a lot of time left before menopause and I don't remember being this excited about someone in a long time. Remember back when arranged marriages were the norm? Couples knew even less about each other than you and I do now, and yet many of them had long lifetimes together!

I want you to give it some careful thought and let me know. Really think about it. Call me if you like to talk about it. We're a really good fit and I think we should seriously consider it.

  1. Good way to scare someone off. Hmmm...

  2. Is this the new way to say that you're not into a guy / send him off running? If that was the goal, mission accomplished!

    I specially like the bit about approaching menopause at age 24, nice touch!

  3. it's never too early to start planning for when it will be too late!

  4. OP should have told her he needs to "kick the tires" first.
