You want someone who will make your boring ass life fun; someone who knows how to have a good time. Someone loyal so you don’t have a bunch of drama. Someone warm, with a detectable heartbeat. But where to find all these qualities?

Have you considered hell? Think about it. Most people go to hell. Really. Look at the Bible, or the religious text of your choice. There’s all kinds of stuff in there you’re not supposed to do. When was the last time you sacrificed a lamb and smeared its blood on yourdoor? Nowadays, you’d get arrested. And we’re not being Bible-centric here. We’re not here to play favorites.
