pasty boy on campus - w4m


Dear Pasty Boy on Campus,

I noticed you in the library yesterday. You were really pale and...well, pasty. Eyes like golden honey, a jaw as smooth as the finest marble, and looking like an advertisement for peacoats. You were reading something intently, and when I walked by, you looked really annoyed, like you smelled something awful. You made me so nervous, I stumbled and dropped my books. Maybe it was just me, but I feel like we had a connection. I'd love to get to know you better.

The Brunette with Two Left Feet

Copper Cutie at Ipsento Coffee: Saw you lounging in the corner on Thursday around 11am. We connected too briefly, but I sensed something there. I'd like to find out if there's more.

Where to Begin reviews
We met outside of Memphis, deep in Shelby Forest. Sitting on the hood of your rusty red Beetle you caught my eye; I don't know whether it was your bright smile or the flowers in your hair, but I stopped. I felt something, and I think you did, too.

Two Words reviews
Back in the summer I saw you on the L going into Brooklyn. I complimented you on your jacket and you wrote me a note on a scrap of paper. I've kept it tacked to my desk these past few months, hoping by chance I'd run into you again one of these days.
