  I realize that a social media post isn’t the usual way to secure a date to your honeymoon—for obvious reasons—but here we are.   
  My wedding was canceled. What’s not canceled is the nonrefundable, ten-thousand-dollar all-inclusive vacation at a luxury resort, and I’m not about to let it go to waste.   
  I’m packed and ready to hit the beach. But I can’t deny that it might be more interesting to honeymoon with someone.   
  Since my track record of picking dates isn’t exactly golden, I’ve done something that I hope I don’t regret. In a moment of weakness—mixed with panic and fueled by margaritas—I agreed to let my friends choose someone to go with me.   
  It’ll be a blind date / postnuptial vacation—without the nuptials. A few fun days in paradise with no expectations. No obligations.  
  Before you say, “pick me for a free vacay!”, a few things to consider …   
  The perfect candidate will be single. He won’t talk too much on the plane. And he’ll be able to leave town quickly.   
  He will also be okay with sharing a bed. It’s a honeymoon suite, after all.   
  If you want to be considered, email Rebecca and Sara your application at the address below. (Get creative. There’s a free vacation on the line.)   
  Wheels up next week!

  Subject: You up? This is definitely a feeling cute, might want to delete later situation. But isn’t every message sent at two in the morning a precursor to regret? By the way, I hope you read that subject line as the pun it was intended to be. Okay, cutting to the chase—neither of us has an interest in cultivating an emotional connection with each other, right? You have your reasons, and I have mine. But none of that keeps us from nearly crossing the line from professional to personal every freaking day. I mean, what was that almost kiss in the hallway this afternoon? Something has to give. So this is me, giving in. I can’t believe I’m suggesting this, but what if you and I had … a fling? Just a short-lived non-romance. No pretending it will ever be more. We’ll avoid flowers and flirting and get to the f—you know what I mean. That’s all either of us wants anyway. Think about it. Let me know. I’ll see you in the office in the morning. Oh! One more thing—If you’re not into this, don’t ever mention you saw this email. I’ll pretend I never saw it either. Okay. Bye.
