ABOUT HIM & WHO HE'S LOOKING FOR

She was used to fairly standard dates: the guy who took her to the ER because his popped zit wouldn't stop bleeding, the guy who accidentally ripped her blouse while dancing, the guy who proclaimed his love and and threatened to kill them both if she didn't accept his marriage proposal.

So in late November, when a funny bearded brown dude invited her on a first date helping him put up the walls of his outhouse next to his cabin in the woods, naturally, she accepted.

And that's how my parents got engaged by midnight on Christmas Eve...

***

Typical online date scenario resulting from Valentine's Day desperation: guy attempts, by some ostentatious display, to convince girl he is more awesome than his competition. If he qualifies for a category such as "impressive", "funny", or "needs my help" without triggering warning signals, girl replies to his email out of perhaps dozens of less enticing prospects.

They agree to meet for coffee, or worse, dinner.

Girl's pictures are out of date. Guy is less confident than he appeared over the Internets, and forgets to inquire why she's a HUGE Eat-Pray-Love fan. She put it in her headline for a reason, dammit. Girl is disappointed.

Likely outcomes:
A) Nice smiles, split tab, intact egos
B) Guy crudely propositions girl, revealing lack of class and actual seduction ability
C) Quotidian boring date or disaster scenario to be recounted at bachelor[ette] party
D) the HOLY GRAIL of internet dating: mutual infatuation at first glimpse, thereby justifying activity on said site, struggling to reinvent a fantastical how-we-met story for the in-laws, and ultimately perpetuating the species as advertisements for Apple's new iDate product.

Please resist your subliminal urges to kiss, punch, or otherwise assault your computer monitor.

***

People talk about that "spark". Brilliant sparks fly, lighting up the night, and they burn out in a moment if they don't set alight a flame of friendship. And we're left alone in the dark, wondering what might have been, as time passes by. Life is short. Life is a tragedy. And life is beautiful when you can stand inside stormclouds and see all the colors of the wind.

Too busy relocating to the city to be emailing much -- but I'll be checking in intermittently. So message me if you are

silly enough
to join me on a $1 adventure

sweet enough
to give me the first bite of your ice cream cone

smart enough
to see through mirrors

and brave enough
to expose the chinks in your armor

(But, please, don't expose yourself on a first date! Like one of my 2013 disaster dates did at the NYC Ritz Carlton bar.)
