This is a world of internet dating and over-drinking in bars, where Eros wears a very twisted pair of spectacles and Love--- love's on holiday in the South Pacific and is sort of-- holding out-- til the whole modern era blows over. You will help me find the person that I want. Or perhaps did I mis-read? Are you rather NOT offering your services as a digital matchmaking mench--- did I project into "the person that I want" as a lover a bit too much from my own stumbling tumbledrums of unresolved day-to-day tedia-- those little things that show up as FiFi the Wonder Mutt or a jetting fleet of intricately-carved Norse long-boats in odd dreams by chance? Are you-- rather-- offering to help me find Someone? Like, the unnamed mysterious Prussian officer who sent a careening lead balloon through my great-great Grandfather's tibia, thus exiting him from the war and into my great-great-Grandmother's caring bedside Red Cross care? Or The Guy who stole my retainer in 3rd grade? Or that kind and purty lady who unexpectedly held the door of the N train as it was crashing closed the other day, allowing me to make the train and get to my meeting on time--- a meeting holding grave and wonderful consequences for the jet-set juggernaut HoustonWeHaveLiftoff future path of my career? Who precisely are you offering to help me find--- perhaps more to the point, who is it I'm looking to meet? Have to get back to y'on that one.
