...with embarrassment?

I've been trying out a bit of online dating. It seems to have worked for some, and with a busy full time job and kids at home (some of the time), it's tricky to meet new people.

It's been quite slow so far - I've done my best with both pics and description, tried to be charming/not a freak in messages, and I'm being honest with myself about my chances (ie not messaging perky 19 year old students...), but no replies.

Finally, today, I've received a reply. Someone of a similar age, (no kids so fingers crossed not going to see this), lives fairly local, seems nice.

Personally, I'd far rather meet someone in person than spend ages online (MN excepted...). So I asked her if she'd like to meet for a drink.

But no. I realised after sending that my auto-fucking-correct changed the word, so I actually said:

"Maybe you'd like to join me for a deposit?"

I've just offered my services as a sperm donor, haven't I?
