A Gentleman’s Plea of Reconsideration from the Fair Sex (m4w)


Oh, how do I begin? How does one ever begin?

Our first encounter was a disaster; I fear I have sullied your impression of me forever. You were enchanting at the dance, the ribbons of your dress, the curve of your elegant neck, the curls of your dark hair—and I so cold!

Our meetings since have been tinged with the same misfourtune—your sharp tongue, my blundering defensiveness.

Surely you must know by now the depth of my affection for you, despite my outward reserve. It is only for fear of rejection, of painting myself the fool, that I withdraw from my effusive praise for your wit, your lovely features, and your fine mind. As for your sisters, I must admit that I find their actions to be somewhat distasteful, though I believe that you are not too much like them to cause worry.

If this stirs you in any way, please give me knowledge of your sentiment—a brush of your gloved hand on my sleeve, an offer to dance (for I will not refuse you again), a simple yes…

To say I’m flattered would be a fallacy—how does one learn of someone’s true nature but through their actions? You have insulted me time and again, and while our encounters may increase, due to circumstance or the insistence of my “inferior” family, my resolve on this matter shall remain unshakeable. The only yes you will hear uttered from my lips will be my happy response whence you depart.

  1. Do you have a spam problem on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wanting to know your predicament; quite a few of us have created some great practices and we are seeking to exchange solutions with other people, be sure to shoot me an e mail if interested.

  2. Greetings, I do believe your web site may be having internet browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in I.E., it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to give you a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful website!

  3. Thanks for this excellent article. Also a thing is that nearly all digital cameras can come equipped with a zoom lens that permits more or less of any scene to generally be included simply by ‘zooming’ in and out. Most of these changes in focus length tend to be reflected from the viewfinder and on substantial display screen right at the back of the particular camera.
