LA Dating Life vs. Facebook Dating Life- A Poem
On facebook, you click on her face, and hope she doesnt reject you.
In life you would meet a girl, and try to remember her name, and get her number.
On facebook, you send her a link, post on her wall or poke her.
In life, you would wait a few days and eventually ask her out.
On facebook, you would look through her pictures obsessively, and make your own judgements.
In life, you would pick her up, and take her out, for a proper date.
On facebook, you would Instant Message her, until she send you naked pictures of herself.
In life, you would talk to her, get to know her for the person that she is.
On facebook she could block you.
In life she could press charges.
“I am bound to find my wife this year on facebook.” – Adam J. Shenkman
