Unavailable=attractive: the latest lessons

I'm browsing through the job ads today, and run across a different postdoc in a department where I already interviewed this year. Interviewing at the department, I saw all kinds of disadvantages. Seeing it in a job listing, it seems so attractive!

By coincidence, I was browsing through an online dating site earlier today, and ran across a really well-written profile: smart, thoughtful, and even in poetry. I read it carefully and squinted at the pictures, and it turns out this is the guy who comes up to me at parties, tipsy, and tries to get way too close.

Too bad they don't write postdoc job ads in poetry!
