What happened to "never say surrender"?

The last time I was at Farmer's he issued the proclamation that he was giving up on internet dating.

Excuse me? Did I hear that right? My own personal McGuyver is tossing in the towel? How can this be?

He said he gave it a year and that nothing really came of it so he was done. Needless to say I was crushed. After all, as fabulous as he is, his geographical location sucks ass. I've lived in that town. It doesn't have anything to offer...

At the time I didn't bother pressing the issue because he can be a stubborn SOB and I didn't want him to dig in his heels and not speak to me anymore. However, since I hardly hear from him anyway (some nonsense about being busy... yada, yada, yada) I figure I have nothing to lose.

The biggest problem, as I see it, is the photos he uses in his ad. He will cry and whine and complain about the fact that they are fine because it is "who he is"... blah, blah, blah. However, you only get one chance to make a first impression and this:

is not exactly what I had in mind.

Don't get me wrong, it's adorable... but not exactly sexy per se.

So, while I was there I decided to try to get more sexy, manly, McGuyverish-like photos to help him out. However he was not exactly being cooperative.

Instead of getting what I wanted, I got this:

If you look closely, you can see that I am being given
the international sign of "You're #1". Although in this
case I guess I'm #2 since I'm getting it from both fingers...

Needless to say, I was not impressed. But not to be discouraged I decided to give it another go:

Still no success...

Did I mention that he's a stubborn SOB? 

However, it is quite impressive that he can give me the double finger while driving the tractor and loading my appliance. Told you he was talented...


  1. Dang-it! I've seen better pics of him. He needs to" hand-over the keys & just let you do the driving on that account... Or maybe he needs to git shanghai'd into it by you starting another POF account... hand it over when he's grown some sense. He's a prize, all he needs to do is be picky, but not throw out the bathwater just because the baby is hard to find... I'm pretty sure that didn't make any sense, but you get my drift...

  2. I would totally be smitten with that first photo, but I'm a weirdo and sort of suck at the dating game myself. Tell that guy to come out here. We'll do a sexy photo shoot ;)

  3. Hey Dom, if you do manage to get Farmer to do a "sexy photo shoot" I want copies :)
