Apparently 20% of relationships these days begin online.
I'm not surprised. The Internet is embedded in almost every aspect of our lives these days.
But I'm an old-fashioned guy. I met my current love the old-fashioned way. In the real world. It may not have quite been love at first sight. But it was close. At least for me.
We've been together now for over 30 years. We have been through so much together. Moved to a new country. Traveled the world. Grown old together.
She is even better than when I first met her, but for some reason I feel the need for change. Maybe it's a (late) middle-aged crisis but I'm ready for new experiences.
So I went looking for love online.
And a few weeks ago I think I found it.
Wow. I couldn't believe it when I first saw her details on this website I found. Similar in some ways to my current love but not so heavy and way better looking. Very sexy. There were these fantastic pictures. And video. I was blown away.
The way these dating sites work these days is amazing. You can even read reviews from other people who have already dated your prospective partner. Here is what one of those guys said about her…
She is uncomplicated yet sophisticated, she doesn't take forever to get ready, she goes like a train, she has no vices or annoyances, she is an LMB (Low maintenance Bird) as opposed to an HMB, she won't bite you in the arse or take advantage of you when you make a mistake, she will be easy to live with yet rewarding in the long term. She will make you smile.... every time!
Wow. What a recommendation!
She's from England. Like me. I just know we are going to hit it off.
She is planning to come to America this summer.
So last week I took the plunge and made the commitment. She will come to see me this summer and she has already agreed that if I like her, she will come and move into my place around this time next year.
Yes. I really did it. I bought a boat on the Internet. I put down a deposit on an RS Aero.
What did you think I was talking about?
