What If?

Posted on

‘What happens if you meet someone?’ perky friend asks.

Perky obviously hasn’t been single for as long as I have; probably because she’s perky.


Truth is, I’d never really thought about it.  After all, writing a dating blog isn’t like adopting: it doesn’t ease the pressure; if anything it ramps it up.  The more pertinent question surely is, ‘what happens if you don’t meet anyone?’, and that I don’t want to think about.  As I’ve said before, I’m not the most imaginative of writers.

But Perky has a point.  What happens if I do meet someone?  And not just meet, but date, go out with, have a relationship with.  Well there my imagination really does fail me.

I shrug.  ‘I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.’

  1. I’m in the same boat as perky friend (it’s a perky boat): you’ll meet someone before you know it and then we’ll all have to find another dating blog to read instead.

    Writing a dating blog isn’t like adopting? You mean they didn’t interview you to assess your suitability? Probably for the best.

    • The Titanic was a perky boat once 😀

      You’re interviewed on the job, as it were. Sometimes you get instant feedback; more often it’s a waiting game.

  2. Don’t worry, when you’ll have a boyfriend you’ll have thousand of things to write/complain about. I can imagine titles like “the snoring might kill me before I kill him” or “the kitchen fight”.
    Or you can turn MBE into a sex blog.
