Dating again

The thrill of meeting someone new….

If this is a game, then we are on the hunt. That means meeting is akin to the kill. Or does that come later? (bad pun, but you know me….)

I love meeting new people. And so far I have been more than pleasantly surprised by the gentlemen I have met. They out number the cads by a serious ratio. I love talking about everything and nothing and just being with a new person.

Getting a glimpse of the world through their eyes is exciting. I mean you can talk on the phone, or IM until your fingers tingle, but actually, touching, hearing, seeing, and even smelling someone is pretty euphoric.

Now before you start thinking I’m insane (am I too late?), there is the thrill of a new adventure, the possibility of something wonderful, and the expectation of greatness, when you meet. Who doesn’t want to pull up to the restaurant, or coffee shop and see the person of their dreams sitting there….only to realize they ARE waiting for you? And the light of recognition is a thing to behold. The “oh Thank God they aren’t quasi-moto” aspect is always nice too.(You can see it in their eyes …IF you passed muster that is…)

That great first date will set the tone forever…and aren’t first dates great in all their awkwardness? It’s fun, you can either be the person you want them to think you are…or you can be yourself and hope they can deal.

Personally, I like me, I take me everywhere. And sometimes, dates wish I brought someone else. But women are chameleons in their lives too often. I have finally tapped into who I am, and frankly, now you get to meet her, (Wait come back, I’m not THAT scary).

I’m having a wonderful time meeting all of you. I hope your not disappointed, though I know some of you are. Even the worst dates have a unique silver lining. You left the house, you took a chance, and if not this time, then maybe the next time, the person of your dreams might be there…waiting for YOU. If not you got dinner, and crossed another person off the imaginary list of frogs to kiss before you find your prince or princess.

Me? I find royalty in everyone. I love the diverse and the unique, the strange and the sane, the total thrill of the hunt. Even though my arrows are imaginary, my memories will be forever.

Thank you for coming on my safari.

P.S.~ I’m definitely a catch and release girl.

Dating again

August 13, 2007

This pretty much sums up internet dating.

You and I have a lot in common and I would like to meet you. I agreed with everything you said and you just wrote it out so eloquently. Then you made me hungry.

I know this is a forward move, and fairly assertive, but the chat for three weeks, intermittently, before we arrange a date, to see if we are who we profess to be is wearing a little thin. I’m fairly new into the dating scene and I haven’t worked out all the little details.

All the excuses and dawdling aside, How would you like to arrange a blind, internet, sushi date? My favorite place in town is Memories of Japan, in Broken Arrow. They even stole my custom roll and put it on the menu!

If this intrigues even a little, then name the day and the time. My profile is accurate, those pictures are me. We really don’t have anything to lose and we both get dinner. Maybe even a very good friendship. Of course there is always the e-mail back and forth :)

I have never been one to follow the “rules” if they were inconvienent. But I can be patient, if necessary. I look forward to hearing from you. Have a great week.
