Online Dating – The Good

stock-illustration-11166286-valentine-s-loveOn this Valentine’s Day  Single in the City  shares a beam of hope to all single ladies out there as she continues her narrative on online dating. She says….

As I was enjoying the carefree single lifestyle, all of a sudden it happened. Just like that, out of the blue, I received a message. Not a wink or any such thing, an actual message. Curious as I am I decided to have a little look. Nice smile, little shorter than I’d like but still a good 4″ taller than me, and seemed decent enough. I sent a message back. Three messages later, he suggested we’d talk on the phone and I gave him my number. We talked for a while and instantaneously seemed to click. Turns out he lives not too far away and we agreed to meet half an hour later in a local pub where I know the owner.  All of this on the same evening within a time span of around 2 hours. Now, this might sound a little scary, but it surely works for me, since I’ve personally never understood the whole dating and waiting game.

The pub closed about an hour and a half later which provided a natural excuse in case it didn’t work out. But to my surprise it did amount to something. He walked me home, gave me a hug, asked me out for dinner the next evening, and went home without even hinting about coming in for coffee – crikey, didn’t realise it still existed.

Going out for dinner was a different ball game altogether, because now I had the whole day to think about it. Every possible “What if” ran through my mind. Shouldn’t have worried though, we had a lovely evening. Dinner was followed by a picnic in the park, which was followed by the movies and before I knew what hit me things started to get serious. I wonder how that happened….. Six months on, we’ve been on two holidays, he’s kind of moved in by stealth and all is still well.

So, after all is said and done, on-line dating is just another way to meet that one guy or girl you may otherwise have missed. However, there are a lot of shady characters out there, so be careful and don’t spend too much time antagonising over a profile. Chances are he’s not going to be what you think anyways, so get out there and have that coffee. Happy dating….

About the author was created to test out a new phenomenon!! We hear of countless stories where women (and many women around the world) go on a date, maybe once or twice…. get to know the guy and then as soon as she makes up her mind that this is the guy that she would like to have in her life… the guy suddenly turns cold towards her!!! Sounds familiar? What happened? How did this nice guy who was pursuing you countlessly suddenly turned cold the moment you started to show an interest in him? Why did he change his attitude? Why did he stopped calling, stopped texting, cancelled the date (with an excuse— I’m sick! and never called back)
