Hi, you.

So, this is our first e-mail exchange. And I haven’t said anything stupid yet.


Well, maybe that.


Have you ever noticed that the more clever you try to be in e-mails/conversations/multiple felony trials the less clever you seem?

I didn’t know if I should e-mail you at all.  Being able to figure out women is not really a strength of mine.  It’s like…  driving in Japan.  I see all the signs, but I can’t read them.  And one wrong turn and I end up in a Hello, Kitty store.

Or something.

I was trying to come up with the perfect excuse to casually e-mail you.  I came up with nothin’.  Nothin’.

Here’s the thing:

I think you’re great.

That’s it, really.

Everything I’ve seen or heard or learned about you has been amazing.

Your eyes make me want to write a country song…  about your lips, for some reason.

I’m so completely intrigued.  I want to know more.

While it is entirely possible that there is no interest from your end, I figured that everyone likes to be told that they are great.  You know?

I hope.

And now I will hit “send,” confident in the fact that, as soon as I do, I’ll think of the perfect excuse to casually e-mail you.

Adorably yours–

I mean, ADORINGLY yours.

Naw… I totally meant “Adorably yours.”

(Apparently I am pretty confident in the cuteness of my very real insecurities.)

– Me

    This IS adorable.

    Much, much better than an email *I* actually received once, wherein the admirer offered to father my children, and referred to himself as a “romance novelist.” Which meant he had a blog all about S&M-y/deprivation sexual encounters.

  2. who WOULDN’T swoon at this e-mail? :)

    I’m with M&tC. A girl would be crazy to not swoon at that correspondence.

    Adorably Yours,

  8. Beth says:

    But did she reply?

    And did you think of the good excuse to casually email?

  9. andhari says:

    Aw I think that’s cute. And will work better than some cheesy obvious hit on emails :)

    Multiple felony trials… FUNNY.

  11. E.P. says:

    Aww. What is it about those witty e-mails? They’re fantastic.

  12. JenBun says:

    Wait a second…

  13. brandy says:

    I would forgo my Scrabble genius to receive an email like this.


    Who am I kidding? My Scrabble genius has already left. I’m down my 100 points and there’s no relief in sight.

    I hate today.

  14. Anna says:

    This is dreamy. That is all.

  15. BS says:

    I can’t decide whether this email would make me swoon or make me tilt my head to the side and look at you all squinty-eyed like a mysterious spot on the carpet…and then swoon, of course.

  16. Sid says:

    Actually it’s not really an email exchange until she’s replied. At the moment it’s just fan mail or evidence to be used against you when she wants to gain a restraining order … (=

  17. Colleen says:

    Hmmm. Yes, I said hmmm.

  18. Lily says:

    cute little insecurities ARE adorable. and i know exactly what you mean… the perfect words tend to find me immediately AFTER I instead have said something stupid.
