Dear Bill, also known as William Shakespeare,
We need to stop playing this game. You and I, we were meant to be. I’m glad you’ve finally realized it.
I know some people are going to look down on this post and say “Amanda, you and a 16th century playwright just can’t be, it’s simple math,” but they are wrong. Dead people don’t have Twitter accounts.
Just so you know, Bill, I’m a huge fan of your work. Now that you’re following my blog on Twitter, I can see that you’re a fan of mine, too.
Now that we both understand that we admire each other, let me tell you all the other ways we belong together. I could do it in sonnet form, but I feel that’s your area, so I won’t step on your toes.

See? If a website says it is so…
Beyond our mutual admiration for each other’s talents and our matching personalities, there could be a few complications. We both have pasts—I’ve dated other men before and I’m pretty sure you have a wife and some kids. But that’s alright; what’s past is past. I promise not to be overwhelmed by the green-eyed monster if you can make the same promise.
In case I haven’t convinced you of my worth as a partner yet, my dear Bill, let me say this: I may not be as fair as Portia, but I am as well spoken. I may not be as graceful as Ophelia, but I am as devoted. I may not be as blood-thirsty as Lady Macbeth, but I am as strong willed. And, finally, I may not be as innocent as Hero, but I will dote on you with the same affection she gives Claudio.
Bill, further taking a page from one of your many works, I conclude with the following:
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
X’s and O’s
