My online dating journey gets off to an inauspicious start. The site invites me to write a profile. I chew the proverbial pencil for a few minutes before beginning:
I like solitude.
Something tells me this isn’t a winning approach. I think some more. In the end I punch out a few lines indicating that I like dancing, writing, and cake, I don’t much like art galleries and museums, and, bottom line, we need to have a laugh together.
60+ messages in my inbox later I’m realising there are things I like even more than cake. Things like punctuation, spelling, and not being addressed as ‘Babe’.
Things like real life.
And with that thought, I close the tab, shower, get dressed, and go out. To a gallery perhaps, with a cafe that serves really good cake.
