Man, middle age, owner of a driver's license and a personal car, I don't overdrink, I don't smoke, I drive cautiously, I can cook (including polenta, sandwiches, picnic snacks). I am well organized, punctual, clean and I care about other's needs. I am calm, unaggressive and I like interesting discussions on any subject, going out or relaxing in nature. Women would better hold back because my wife is already enough. I am looking for a compatible man: generous, careful, patient, with his own tools as a fishing partner.

Real Fiction is a collective project started in 2013 by Florin Piersic Jr. The concept of Real Fiction continued to exist as a Facebook group, after a volume of stories was published at Humanitas Publishing House. (In March 2021, the group has 4.300 members.) The authors write ultra-short stories, setting their texts within the limit of 500 symbols (in Romanian language, so in English the limit might be a little different) - a flash-fiction exercise with an almost daily changed topic. The group's coordinators are Florin Piersic Jr., Gabriel Molnar, and Luchian Abel. (Drawing by Adrian T. Roman)
