An open letter to the Attached/Affianced/Avowed guys that for some inexplicable reason continue to pursue me.

Dear Guys,

Thank you for continually reminding me that I am attractive and intelligent and funny. Thank you also for keeping my flirting skills oiled and ready for action.

Here's the thing, though, I put in my time as The Other Woman and while it was a good job - educational, fun, exciting - I'd have to liken it to an internship in a dream company with a pretty small stipend. It's a good way to start out and learn the ropes but you can't do it forever and the majority of companies don't promote from that position.

As attractive as a lot of internships look to me I'm too old for them and I have too many bills to pay.

I do honestly appreciate the offer, however painful the interview process has become.

Please say hello to your girlfriend/fiancee/wife for me, it was great to see her.

Now why don't you go out and buy her some flowers or a nice scarf.


P.S. If you know any SINGLE guys who, like you, are well-read, well-spoken, talented, funny and just naughty enough could you perhaps give them my number?
