Reconnaissance made easy!

Let's play a little game, shall we?

"I spy with my little eye, something beginning with MARRIED!"

The beauty of living in Age of Information is that if you are looking for anything about anyone, chances are, a few key words in a search engine will provide you with a few key answers.

So this past Saturday i was getting my flirt on with, let's call him X. Anywho X was a barrel of laughs and by the end of the night numbers had been swapped, meaningful glances exchanged and i think a bum squeeze was thrown in there somewhere (i can't be sure though, some bits are hazy).

Predictably X hollared the following day and as intrigued i was by him, i couldn't help but think something was up...call it my spidey sense.

During my conversations with X he kept throwing in, quite subtly though, what a bit of a hot shot he was, and how well connected he was. So last night, after a bit of boredom curiosity got the better of me and i googled him.

A few 1000 hits confirmed that he was indeed the hot shot and well-to-do individual he had made himself out to be...what he conveniently forgotten to mention was that he was married!

Tsk tsk, married people (men in particular) should really wear those shiny wedding bands they're issued on the day they give up their single status...better yet, all married individuals should have a big 'M' tattooed on their foreheads so single gals like myself know what is what, innit!

Ah well, there's no love lost, just another eventful day in the big city :-)


Don't believe a word I write said...

hmmm, so this bloke either:

a) thought you wouldn't find out, or
b) didn't care if you found out

Either way, muchos scary! What a creep. Well done for checking him out.

Methinks he was going for option B! I am quite scandalised but a jaded part of me isn't all that surprised to tell you the truth.

Clearly that's just how some people roll!

Well, the odds are in his favour. He'll just cross your name off the list and move onto whatever letter is after 'V' on his list. You see, good "players" always keep their lists in alphabetical order :)

"Good Player" i don't know about that, sounds like an oxymoron to me!

I'll tell you who comes after V, Wanda...Wanita...Xania...Yvonne....Zandi, hehehe.

SKC, please expand on what makes a player "good"?

Sadly, the odds are in his favour...he may have lost one but he's bound to pick up 5!
