Suddenly Single… Minded

Welcome to the Wild and Whimsical World of Internet Dating

One small problem with Mr Right?

Phil was a great guy. Everybody said so.

He was single, straight, employed, fun, well-read, loved the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Warriors. He had tickets to the SF Film Festival and liked to watch roller derby at Kezar. He opened doors and opened hearts and was an well-practiced flirt. Women loved him.

Most women loved him – he was a prince. He had one small problem that 9 out of 10 women he started to date could not abide by – he smoked. A lot. It was rare to see him without a cigarette.

Women who saw him in church or at the library were generally smitten with the shock of silver hair, the baby-blues eyes and his engaging, ready-smile. 

Sure, he tried to kick the habit  and heartily agreed with Mark Twain who said,

“Giving up smoking is the easiest thing in the world.

I know because I’ve done it thousands of times.” 


And so it goes. Our hero, Mr. Phil Turr of California, isn’t ready to settle down and compromise.

His love for the little white cylinders out weighs any interest in relationships. So far.

  1. Finding Mr. Right is one thing. Is it wrong to want him to live for 50 years more? If Phil gave up smoking for true love… that would be awesome. Thank you for your post. I liked it…

  2. 9 out of 10 women are really, really smart.

  3. Interesting take on the prompt and even more so interesting style of approach. I enjoyed the read and agree with those 9 girls. Now does that make me one of the 9 or am I the 10th to join the group and help win the war?
