I don’t see anything lame about number 3
It’s sincere, honest and I believe that it is also very courageous of the dude to expose himself that much.
Especially as none of it comes off as desperately needy.
I happen to be a straight guy in my very late 30′s, but if I were a single woman anywhere near his age in the US, it would surely sound more appealing than most shit you see.
Kudos to the dude and his set of balls (that he’s quite willing to still put to use).
