News from the front

Online dating has evolved, thanks to cameraphones and broadband.

Here's what's out there:

Women who can't crop out men and full shots of other women (to the point where you don't know which fucktard is which), women who misspell "intellectual", the ones who advertise their pain, abandonment and man-hate in the first 25 words, women who self-describe as "sexy" or "elegant" and then mention sports teams by name... It's a good thing bars exist or the human race would have died out long ago.The "official" acknowlegement of my relationship's dissolution was yesterday at Barnes and Noble. There is a mural (probably in every fucking B&N) which features IB Singer. Somehow he caught my eye while (name of ex) & I were talking and his presence amused and sanctified in some screwy way the goings on. It was like he was officiating the mishegas. Who better?

A quote from our man Quentin Crisp: "It is explained that all relationships require a little give and take. This is untrue. Any partnership demands that we give and give and give and at the last, as we flop into our graves exhausted, we are told that we didn't give enough."
