Personal Ads - Online Dating

Hello folks,

After a few days off, I'm anxious to get blogging again. The only problem was thinking of something to write about. Current events are getting a little boring right now, and my personal life isn't exactly full of espionage and intrigue either.
So I'm going to tell you a story, a true story, about my friend Kirk, his roommate (my ex-roommate) Greg, and myself.
This story begins in my first year of college, but I'm not going to start at the beginning. I will just give you a quick summary of earlier events. I met Kirk in Residence and Greg in my course during first year of college. In second an third year Kirk was a roommate of mine in a house we shared with three other friends. Greg was local so although he didn't live there, he was always around.
Anyway, now you know how we met.
Kirk is from Ottawa, or Renfrew more specifically, and Greg is still living in Ottawa so they got an apartment together on August 1st this year.
Greg has recently found a girlfriend, her name is Heather, she's a really cool chick. Kirk on the otherhand has trouble finding women. In fact, he's hopeless. We don't understand why though, he's an extremely friendly and outgoing individual, he's charming and funny. I guess it's his looks. He's fairly short, about 5'6", and he's ...uh...big boned! He must weigh somewhere around the 300 lb mark. But most of it is solid muscle with some fat on top. Unfortunately he's going bald at an early age, he's 23, and he doesn't have the best set of teeth.
But other than these minor issues, there is no reason he shouldn't have a girlfriend.
So Greg and I have taken it upon ourselves to find him a girl. Which up until now we haven't exactly been excelling at. You see, Greg and I are a couple of dumbasses. As you can tell from reading my blog, I'm not exactly the most mature person around here. If I have the maturity level of a 10 year old, Greg would be about 5 and a half.
So, suffice it to say, we've been unsuccessful in our mission to find a companion for our good buddy Kirk.
About two weekends ago I found out that Greg, or possibly another of my idiot friends had signed me up on some sort of mailing list, probably originating with some sort of transvestite pornography site. And I began receiving e-mails about free online dating sites.
I decided that these sites would be a great way to find a woman for Kirk. So I began to sign him up on all sorts of them, without telling him, it turns out he's not into the online dating scene. Eventually I began to notice that these sites allow you to create a profile, but if you'd like to contact a memeber you have to pay money to do so. So I gave up on the idea, as I'm not going to spend any cash to find someone for Kirk, I'd be better off saving the money and hiring a prostitute for him.
Then, I stumbled upon a site I had heard of from one of Kirk's friends. It's called Casual Kiss, better known as CS to it's users. This site is 100% free (at the moment), it allows you to create a profile, download a picture, send e mails, participate in chats, join interest based online clubs. Everything. It's amazing.
So I signed Kirk up. I got a picture of him from Greg, and I began searching for girls he might like, and or have a chance with. Currently he's received two responses from interested ladies.
Now my dilema is this....Although Kirk now knows he's on the site, and knows that girls have e-mailed him, he hasn't shown any initiative in responding to them himself, asking me to do so for him, is it ethical for me to do so? Should I be chatting and e mailing these women as Kirk? What if they're interested in him for his personality, which is my personality, which is different from his? Anyway, what do you think?
