Or “I’m Baaaack in the Saddle Again!” – Part III
Who said Paul could only write silly love songs!
So after a week I have it factored down to Ms. Beatlemania and Blond Power or rather I had been factored down to those two ladies. Although a consolation prize would seem an insult and understatement to Ms. Beatlemania and Ms. Blond Power.
Ms Beatlemania was looking for someone intelligent, with sharp wit and enjoyed sarcasm; she listed both bad boy and guy next door as a preference and apparently liked music. She said she was athletic and enjoyed the outdoors.
Among other things I wrote:
“I’m writing to you, that must make me intelligent… You want a Bad Boy Next Door? Are you looking for someone with a split personality? Hey you did say you liked sarcasm J
So with that I got a nice note back from Beatlemania. She said my note made her laugh. She said she preferred personal e-mail and she gave me her’s (pbest@****.com) and said her name was Christine.
I then scored some more humor points when I asked if she was still bitter over being kicked out of the band! Yes, her e-mail did reference a past member of the band.
She said she had a very hectic life with work and kids. She apparently prepared proposals for a defense contractor just outside the beltway and said “I could tell you about it but I would have to kill you! J” Good to see someone with humor! Maybe she’s the one who has those bargain basement $1,000 screw drivers the Army uses! She also said she occasionally was known to curse like a sailor. Interesting! And while her profile listed her as in
Virginia she actually lived in . I was finding out one could usually assume there was as much creativity in any woman’s profile as one would find in mine. However, it was becoming an interesting dance as I found out about the ladies I wrote too and as they found out about me. In fact the dance was almost as fun as the actual eventual meeting. Did I say meeting? I hope that means I actually meet another woman J Maryland
On one of her follow up e-mails she sent some pictures of herself. Now in an earlier blog entry I mentioned being careful about pictures as they can over and under represent. In Ms. Beatlemania’s situation her first picture was underwhelming, one of those quickie I Phone pictures shot at arm’s length. But a second round of photos had a very inviting picture of her lounging on the front of a sail boat looking over her shoulder at the camera with a nice smile. Point here; don’t put too much emphasis on early photos (positive or negative).
After we e-mailed several times we had a tentative after work drink scheduled. Unfortunately Ms. Beatlemania self-selected to drop out of AM abruptly and again I didn’t hear back.
So I had now gone from bonanza to one option. But sometimes in life the cream does rise to the top!
