I am a photographer, traveler, archivist, blogger, producer and creative hot spring. My world revolves around trying to keep my overactive mind occupied, entertained and somewhat focused.
When you dip your toes into the dating world, whether it be IRL or online, you are bound to come out with some interesting stories – at least I do.
Rather than wallow in self-pity because I have yet to find my “true love” I find that viewing the whole experience as a comedy show is somewhat of a consolation. While horrifying, appalling, embarrassing or just an outright comedy of errors at the time, a good number of the awful dates now provide laughs, rueful head shakes and a tension breaker for current dates or those who are diving into the shark infested dating waters.
When asked about “worst” or “most awkward” experiences, I often cite one particular incident that I now find highly amusing. I call it “My Most Uncomfortable Match Ever.”
There is this man who I am rather taken with. I have been for a while now.
We have the same sense of humor, we find amusement in the absurd, and we have so many little things in common. He is honest, stable, funny, attractive, creative, smart and handy around the house. I think we’d make a rather nice couple, and a number of people have made comments in agreement with that.
He has one rather big flaw, though. He is a member of my dah.
“…Just got your charming epistle. I was so glad to get it. I really did not expect it. But the one I got yesterday. OH. my. how can you write such a masterpiece. I was trying to go to sleep all morning but I just knew I had a letter coming and I knew if I went to sleep I might not wake up when the Postman came… It surely was great. 7 folders just like a book of love. I enjoyed it so much that I took thirty minutes of intermission and read it again. I had a little head ache before I started but when I finished it was all gone….” From Fred to Florence, June 1923
Can you imagine receiving or writing letters like that?
