Good emails can go a long way

I know I said that I have pretty much given up on online dating…and I have.


I just have to share this email with you that I got from a guy that I went out with a couple of weeks ago. We met for coffee one evening. He was nice, but not my type at all. This was the guy that reeked of my dad’s cologne…yeah him.

He went on vacation with his kids the day after we had coffee. We never exchanged phone numbers and I deleted my online profile, so how he got my email address I may never know. I guess I can chalk it up to good detective work. I kind of like it when guys go out of their way for a girl, usually not in a stalker kind of way, but in more of a “I thought of you when I saw this card so I bought it for you” kind of way.

Anyway, yesterday I was kind of in a funk. In a funk because I was waiting on some potentially great news that could change my life. My stomach was in knots and I was becoming frustrated. So when I got this email, I had to laugh…it kind of made my day.

Here is what it said…

Hey He Who Laughs Last,

I just wanted to drop you a quick email and let you know that I had a great time on our date, unless you didn’t, in that case, I didn’t either.

Looking forward to seeing you again soon.


Mr. Cologne

Seriously? How cute is that?

Usually the email/text after the first date is kind of awkward, but this one was just perfect. So perfect it kind of makes me want to go out with him again…BUT I WON’T!

If I did, my friend Jackie might just come over and kick my ass…and I am in NO mood for that!


  1. That is funny. I will have to remember to use that line after a good first date.

  2. Wow! I posted about a VERY similiar incident yesterday!

    So weird that we both got good emails... but maybe I can borrow Jackie when I need a good ass kicking?? :)

    But I do have to admit... that would make me want a second date as well. LOL

  3. Sounds like Mr. Cologne knows about your blog!!
