Hi blog friends. Sorry for the lack of posting this week, but I've had a bit of a hectic schedule. All is returning to normal. So I'm about to throw a curve ball here. I know I've discussed dating and boys a few times around here and by a few I mean a million, obviously. So clearly the way I've been approaching finding a potential mate has been mediocre at best. I've had some good dates, some awful dates, and some truly ridiculous dates. Recently (as in the past month) I started emailing with a boy, let's call him PenPal for now. Normally after a few emails are exchanged (what up, Jdate) things progress to awkward glasses of wine while I shadily try to make sure he's not wearing chunky white sneakers. Well, that did not happen in this case. You see, PenPal is currently on the west coast. For the next several weeks things will have to continue this way. It's been an interesting experience.
By interesting, I mean good, of course. Getting to know someone the old fashioned way. In writing. Although my Mother did suggest FaceTime. Because she always gives the best dating advice. Except she gives the worst dating advice. I digress. When we eventually go on our first date (in what feels like a year) it won't feel like a first date. I already know more about him than I do about guys I've gone on a few dates with. At first I was wary of chatting with someone who wasn't immediately available to me. It seemed a little dangerous. Which is why I did it. Like a moth to a flame. What if I got attached to PenPal and then I met him and he was awful? Well, that's a chance I'm willing to take because so far getting to know him has been the most fun I've had in a long time. If it doesn't work out romantically, I have no doubt we'd be great friends. It's a win/win. Oh God, I hope so.
Not to worry, I'm still accepting dating applications. We're open for business!
