I got a reply to my planet out profile from someone with the user name “serious top.” The subject line was “your the one.” I quote his message in full (N.B.: to appreciate his response, you must know that in my profile I refer to both skydiving and chocolate chip cookies):

“our first date will be skydiving, chocolate chip cookies, fucking and a
lot of conversation to find out about each other. However, right not I
can say I love you.”

Right not I can say I love you?

The ambiguity here is almost too much to bear. I might have to respond, if only to find out what this could possibly mean.

In which case maybe we can just do the skydiving, cookies, and fucking and skip the conversation to find out about each other.

Come to think of it, that’s not a bad general rule for dating.

    Don’t fall for it. Last time someone tried this on me, they skydived into my fucking bag of chocolate chip cookies. And he meant “not.”

    oh god, that’s rich!
    ( i don’t mean rich like money, as it’s clear that if this person had money, they’d hire a copy editor)
