However, if I took the time to not only look at your profile, but also send a nicely-worded message means that I held out hope that you weren't like the others. But as it turns out, 99% of the time it only means you did a nice job of lying on your profile to make yourself sound like a good person.
Despite all of that, I still choose to hold out hope that there really is ONE person, somewhere in Southeast Michigan, who really is as good a person as they made themselves sound on their profile. Someone who isn't self-centered, egotistical, attention-seeking, lazy and unmotivated, and is only looking to get laid and/or phish money out of their pockets.
What are the chances that that ONE person, among the thousands of others on this site....is you?
