Ah yes. So, I’ve decided to try internet dating again. I feel I should be doing something proactive to find a partner, rather than waiting for the man of my dreams to pass me on the street.
Especially since when men pass me on the street I tend to look away in case I… well, I don’t actually know why, now that I think about it, I just don’t generally catch people’s eyes on the street unless they’re elderly. Or unless they are a dog, I often speak to dogs that pass me on the street. “Hello there!” *Wag* *Sniff* *Smile*
And before I go any further, let me just comprehensively rubbish a couple of oft-repeated myths related to this subject:
1. That when you stop actively looking for a partner is when you find The One. I’ve been single for several years now and actively looking for only a few months out of that time. You do the maths. No really, I need a calculator to add anything, I’m serious.
2. That just doing the stuff that one likes doing will cause one to meet other people who like doing said things and that this will somehow miraculously morph into providing partner material. Okay, so the first part is true, and I have met lots of lovely people since I arrived in Sydney through bush-walking, swimming, yoga, running, scuba-diving, drawing, reading, volunteering, going to the cinema, camping, drinking shandy etc etc etc – but there is a major flaw in the second part of this theory… ALL THESE LOVELY PEOPLE ARE MARRIED OR ATTACHED ALREADY. Yes, all of them.
So, I need to find a decent couple of photos of myself and write some blurb about me for the dating site. Which is where you come in – any suggestions?
