I was in Starbucks the other day and struck up a conversation with a girl in line. She commented on the color of my shirt. I commented on her decorative glass frames. Neither of us were in a hurry. So we sat down and drank our coffee together.
Early on in our conversation, it was revealed that she is a veteran of the online dating world. I still consider myself a rookie as I’ve only been doing it for the last few months. (That still constitutes rookie status, right?) She had some great stories as she has done it on and off for the 12 years. I shared some of my stories. We laughed for a half an hour before we were both on our way.
Anyway, we decided to talk early next week to schedule a date. I thought it was ironic that we’re both on online dating sites, but we met the old fashioned way. We’ll see what happens. Maybe I’ll have to start a new blog, 35andnotonlinedatinganymore:)
