Reasons you should go out with me

[ Sam's Home | Pictures | Sam's Toybox | Bookmarks/Favorites | Dating Resume | SMAHS ]

The idea for this list, and some of the entries on it, came from an incredible list I happened upon on the web by Dale Miller (aka Skirtman). Note that this list is meant to be humorous; please don't take offense (or at least please don't email me about the offense you took). Sam
