After a few weeks of chatting, I was ready for the “next move.”
The MEET and GREET.
So, he was out with friends, I have friends… and what better thing to do than meet up for a casual Wing Night at Darby’s??? (ooops, I forgot I hate Darby’s...).
Anyway, his picture had him looking tall, dark and handsome.
He claimed to be a 27-year-old teacher who had traveled the world.
Who showed up at Darby’s ? ? ?
A 40-something who hadn’t shaved in months and had that “blue collar” look about him.
Anyway, Mr. B C (Blue Collar, Bastard Cupid, Big Creep... whatever works) greeted me warmly.
SURE HE DID.
BECAUSE MY PHOTO WAS OF ME and he KNEW WHAT TO EXPECT.
I, however, was horrified.
Conversation was at a standstill and I pulled the “turn my back to you and talk to my friend” move.
Although it works well on people you’ve literally just met, the guy you’ve chatted with for hours on end doesn’t take the hint so well.
What I learned?
Unless you MEET someone and FALL FOR HIM… it’s not going to happen.
Cupid distributes arrows for ONE reason.
They are not for “inflicting” singles with love.
They are for carrying around in your purse for protection.
