Have we met?
If you find me charming, funny and confident, then the answer is no. Although, we might have emailed. Why? Because in terms of personality, I’m Don Draper … electronically. In the flesh? Not so much.
Welcome to my personal hell.
Here’s the deal: When I email a gal, I’m imbued with all these crazy powers. Confidence! Wit! Charm! On my Powerbook or my iPhone, I’m George Clooney at a cocktail party. On a date, without my assorted Apple products, I become … the Mac guy.
