If you remember, there was a nice guy who'd messaged me on the dating site and we'd been chatting back and forth for a while.
I knew it most likely wasn't going to go anywhere, but I was enjoying getting messages from him and having a conversation with a nice, good looking guy, even if he lived hours and hours away.
It still struck me as funny, though, when he messaged me this weekend to let me know that although he was enjoying our conversation, he was "looking for someone closer to home" and was going to be "leaving the site very soon." Which he did, later that day.
I wanted to laugh and point out to him that *he* had been the one to contact me, me who lives hours and hours (and a ferry ride) away. It seemed odd, but I guess maybe he just wanted to talk to someone nice for a while too.
This whole online dating thing is weird. It just is.
I wonder how our children's children will meet their future boyfriends?
