If you’re gonna try to woo me, don’t quote shit you didn’t write and try to pass it off as your own. HUGE turn-off. Plus, it makes me judge you—‘cause who you tryna be?
I hate when people try to woo you with words that are not their own; it’s fake, fake, fake. You might as well recite Romeo’s lines from Romeo & Juliet! All you’re trying to do is butter me up; all you’re trying to do is feign charm. Nope. Sorry.
High standards? Mmmno, I don’t think so. Is it too much to ask to want to date someone who actually uses her brain?
She doesn’t have to write a masterpiece; it doesn’t have to be perfect. I just want it to be genuine and special.

"My generation got a cheap college education when we were young, and we’re getting good retirement benefits now that we’re old. Pretty nice. But now we’re turning around and telling today’s twentysomethings that they should pay through the nose for college, keep paying taxes for our retirements, and oh by the way, when it comes time for you to retire your benefits are going to have to be cut. So sorry."

of a non-existent meeting."
