Love in the Time of Kittens

Do we ever really know another person? To push back the the dark shadows of loneliness we all seek the companionship that will provide support, validation, and comfort through the hard times. With the rise of online dating services, it's easier than ever to troll through the swamp find someone with similar interests, outlook and expectations.  Of course, online dating services also make it easier to create a misleading or entirely fake persona, by using those pictures from 10 years ago, when your BMI was briefly 21; by claiming to be passionate about skydiving; or by giving yourself Ivy League credentials.  [Come to think of it, you can do all of those things in a Dupont Circle bar, with beer-goggles taking care of the picture thing.  But I digress.]

But sometimes technology permits you to cut through the cloud of deception, and really see into another person's heart.

You see what we mean? The Villanova M.B.A. is a complete deal-breaker.

I don't know why not. Many people have a soft spot for Villanova.

I'm pretty certain there's a 50-something retiree in rural Virginia who would be willing to take a flyer on her, but only if she brings her cats with her. I can't even begin to imagine what her apartment looks like.
