Online Dating

I’m looking for a date Despite it getting quite late I’ve tried Tinder and Badoo And OKCupid too Yet, all I find are bots And scams and attempts To defraud Porn star pictures Some of them dead A simple reverse search confirms A profile to dread I send messages That go unanswered Poems and thoughts and things That might interest Photos of course I select only What I think to be my best I’m a real catch for someone But this makes no sense Online dating It’s a lottery The ladies in waiting Never reply I an’t get their interest I feel I need to lie About my age To get a look in I want to shout Look at me! I’m wealthy, creative I look younger than I am

Dead Porn Stars and Facebook

I maintain a facebook account and if anyone wants to friend me, I am OK with that… I assume they read my books or somehow know me. Just recently though, I have been inundated with lots of friend requests from really sexy looking young women. As usual, I just said Ok and carried on. But these new friends appeared insistent upon talking to me. Well, I’m not averse to talking to nice looking young women – or anyone for that matter, so I chatted back. The first strange thing I noted was that each of these women seemed to have very bad luck. One told me she was raped and now has an 11-year son from that who she is raising by herself. Her mother died in childbirth and her
