I meet him online. Or he meets me online. He messages me first. And I am in bed, bored, online because online is how I meet men, and an alert window opens on my phone, because I use my phone to go online to meet men, and I read his e-mail, and what he writes makes me laugh, and I respond, and what I write must intrigue him, or what I write must make him laugh, because we begin volleying e-mails.
