When you get to be my age you have to be realistic. Often when I meet someone they are surprised by my age. I tend to be guessed younger by 10 years or so. It’s always been that way. Years ago I picked up my daughter at her high school and the next day a friend of hers asked if her boyfriend (meaning me) was in college. What I don’t get much of is the attention of women under 30 anymore. This is fine with me. What could we possibly have in common? OK, besides that.

How’s it goin? I’m Kristy, I just moved to the Connecticut area and I wanna meet a nice guy around here :). I came to Connecticut a couple of weeks ago for my job and now that I’m here I have nothin to do! I read your profile… You’re cute and I liked what you had to say :). I’m 21/F/single and I like a guy who is easy to be comfortable around. I’m into a guy who is a little bit older than me. You say you’re 55 so I guess that means you 😉 My friend Jen from back home suggested I tried using myspace to meet people in my area. I just signed up and my profile sux hehe. I do have a blog/profile page at (her site was here) … I have alot of photos and stuff up if you wanna see me 😉 I also left ya a personal message on my blog so come check it out k? Lookin forward to chattin with ya, Kristy
Now of course I knew that this could not be serious. Now fortunately I was expecting less than nothing by clicking on her link. As great looking and youthful as I am, I am 55. She says she’s 21. Shockingly this is what I got by clicking on her “site”. (Of course I clicked it. You just have to be curious.)
OMG. She may have been less than truthful. I would not be surprised if she (gasp) has sent this same email to others. The shame. The humanity. I thought she really liked me. I was planning our wedding and everything. Oh well, maybe my next My Space email will be better. One can only hope.
