There’s definitely an art to dating when it comes to having of goal of a one night stand. First, one should have low self-esteem about themselves, and secondly, one shouldn’t expect much in a partner — other than a partner will be as willingly a sad person as the seeker, and will perhaps have a loopy eye, or an ear that pops out at a 90 degree angle, you know, something odd physically so that you can laugh a sad laugh about the experience once it’s over.
We bring this up because we keep coming across these fliers on the NYC subway system from a person who has both creepy handwriting and the desire for a one night stand.
Our favorite date idea of the poster is “a cigarette meet.” Mysterious advertiser of one night stands, if you’re reading this, we recommend that you try the old “let’s meet in Sketchers in Times Square and then go back to my place” date. We hear that it works every time. Or, if you’re feeling extra lucky, try the old, “let’s listen to an emergency scanner and meet up at the scene of a horrific and deadly accident” because nothing says lust like the sight of a man in uniform.
