Online Dating

Online dating is interesting. You see some strange profiles, such as the guy who posted a college football photo of himself saying "this is me, plus 20 years." Profiles also show someone's writing skills -- or lack thereof -- but to me, it seems like a valid way to meet others who have similar interests and values...if both people are honest.

I had a date last Friday. It was so amazingly good, I'm having a difficult time trying to figure out how to write about it all. Plus, I'm still in the middle of getting settled and moving in, while planning a business trip for tomorrow... I don't have the internet working yet at home, so I'm in Starbucks at the moment, doing some work on my day off (grrr, but can't be avoided). I need more time to write it all out, so sorry for the foreshadowing.

Suffice it to say, for now, that I've found someone worth spending more time with. And the great thing is, he's feeling the same about me.

Well we know one thing - he has great taste in women! And obviously discerning judgment.

If he is wearing shorts when next you meet check out his knees to see if they are bruised from excessive kneeling while thanking god for sending you his way. It's the acid test.

I like the new blog look!

Also, am exceedingly jealous about your fantastic date!

My last date insulted my mother and called me an "ugly fat repulsive asian cow." Ah, Paris :)
