We’ve emailed and called the contact provided, and the outgoing message is amazing in and of itself: “The number 718-xxx-xxxx is a real number. You have dialed a real number, and we’ll be here. If you are serious, leave your name and number. If not, just hang up.”

You’ve got to admire a fiscally responsible man who knows what he wants. And what he wants is a cigarette, a cheeseburger, sex and “maybe romance.” Count us in!
