Gone fishing

Online dating: curse or bane of singletons everywhere? I haven't decided, but I have gotten quite a few stories out of my experiences. Here's just a sample message I was recently sent:

Offering something a bit more old fashion...Welcome to my page. What do I have to offer? What is in it for you? What about you, yourself, your desires, wishes , wants ,needs and on and on the list goes.

I don't have to talk about my job, cause I don't have or need one. I am set up just fine financially with a simple lifestyle after having travelled to many countries of the world. I never got the chance to be a real dad yet and now is the time.You could keep your job if you like, but if you have children you won't be working at a job cause you are too busy chasing your children around the house and yard. The real joy in life includes children and why you are not fulfilled with all your hobbies , free time and what not. Nor has your job satisfied you either, though you spent years in jobs and now you decided you want a family at your age! ........"

This message did, of course, come from a man old enough to be my father.
