Plenty of Fish in the SeaLike many couples today, we met online. I loved online dating. I am somewhat literate and take decent photographs so it worked well for me. I planned my 10 minutes of small talk that was based two or three conversation starters. From there I would get my three indicators of interest, then quickly to phase shift. The entire setup worked way better for me than sitting in a loud, smoky bar meeting people who liked to frequent such places. Jenn never did buy the woo I was pitching. Her initial contact with me was mocking my tagline saying “I was the most adventurous nerd she would ever meet”. It took me a while, but when I convinced her that my lure was real, she was hooked.
Early AdventuresOur ‘coffee date’ was almost a disaster. I got the day wrong and proceeded to harass her while she was on a date with another man about why she stood me up. At least I was a day early, so I didn’t stand her up. When we finally met, she wasn’t into hearing about my science fiction story I was writing. She didn’t think that qualifying guys for their artistic and creative ability was important, yet, here we are today blogging together. Anyway, she wasn’t wooed by any means…. But she wasn’t offended either. I was kind of like Wonder Breaded. Nothing great, but nothing not to like, so worth a second taste. Rillito River Trail. She was decked out in her full road biking regalia. I sported athletic shorts and tube socks while riding my 29er. Her first thought was – really? I am a morning person and a chatty rider. She was half awake and just wanting to listen to her jams with both earplugs in. Again, she wasn’t real impressed with my style, but I could hang with her biking. I wasn’t too weak, and I wasn’t a dick who would drop her off the peloton so I could get my ride in. I just liked cruising along next to her, albeit chatting in her ear the whole time.
