    "I see you checked me out on ...name of dating website.

    #holyshitski I said to myself. I immediately went onto the site and blocked him from contacting me or seeing my profile. In the process, I noticed that the dating website had assessed our compatibility as 100%. His description of what he was looking for was a description of me.

Happened to a bud of mine as he left a relationship of 6 years. After lots of beer and a little talk, we figured it's because they've been together day in and day our for so long that that's all he really knew in a woman. Given time apart, time to find himself, he'd find maybe he had different needs.

The same is probably true for you.

Actually no -- I'm looking for someone completely different.

As much as I love science, I think now I'd prefer someone with more than a toe in the arts and humanities - particularly a writer or a tormented stand-up comic, providing he has no addictions.

Everyone has addictions.

Especially stand-up comics. It was kind of a joke, flaggy. I was in an addictive relationship with an everything-abusing stand-up comic. It was laughable. Edit - but tons of fun until it was awful

Wow - that was a fascinating walk down memory lane. Flags, you're amazing to remember that.

But those ones have the best stories!
