As I was leaving home this morning, I caught not one, but two of these signs along Strachan Avenue.
A 32-year-old male, Fawad, looking for a “straight good looking girlfriend.” He mentions that he’s currently working in transportation and drops his phone number twice, plus two email addresses. But unfortunately for Fawad, I don’t think his hotline will be blinging anytime soon.
I had to keep telling myself “you’ve done this before, it never ends well, just meet and deal with the fallout”. Her being a gorgeous petite brunette, curves in all the right places, a crazy side, a soft side, a super-funny side and everything else required to make me super attracted to her in a devilishly addictive cocktail of attraction. Me: You don’t have to do your hair all up, really, forget it.
I set the date at a quiet spot near her on the other side of the city, figuring we’d meet around 7 or maybe 8pm – she shot back with . Her: No, I want to look nice for you and I am doing my hair, it takes time. Me: Yes babe, bring PJ’s in case Her: Should I maybe just come there Me: Yes you should (leaving out lots of come and go testing stuff, childs play) And so it was set, a first date, after much texting and calling was set for my place.
We spent about a day messaging on the app before she gave me her number and we switched to texting.
We quickly had a connection and textemistry – and I even broke my own rules by calling her during one of our textversations – which only made our seriously intense bond grow deeper.
With the proliferation of dating apps and websites, today’s singles are increasingly turning to screens for hookups, dates and long-term love.
If I really believe in 30-day challenges I should do a 30-day online dating challenge, because really there is nothing to lose. I know several couples who met online and openly talk about it.So to get people off my back I joined a free site, I had been on it years ago and met some nice people.Despite the fact that he’s “professionally career oriented [and] currently working,” most women aren’t going to respond to a dating ad written on cardboard and tied to a post by string.And although Fawad offers up a ton of personal information, including two Yahoo email addresses, he fails to reassure the number one thought most women reading this will have running through their heads: I am not a killer.
It’s hard these days to get a date, let alone find someone compatible to be in a long-term relationship with.
