100-word story: Dating trading cards

One of the best ways I’ve found to combat the disappointment and monotony of online dating in Japan is to screenshot all of the winners I find. After a year of so of doing this I’ve collected a pretty good stash. So without further ado, my top ten:

10. Contemplative

9. A good warning

8. Oh you know, not too.

7. Yeah that must be rough

6. Too honest

5. Too personal

4. Just wants a night buddy

3. Wait what?

2. A man of integrity

1. And my all-time favorite…

I replied “money first!” He said “no” and deleted me.

Another one bites the dust!
