I am a tourist; I spend vacations in people’s lives, take pictures then move on. That used to be me until my friend for many years invited me to join a blackberry group. I would have declined, but the words ‘Blind Dating’ caught my attention.
Imagine my frustration when, after four days of following the group chatter, I discover everybody knew everybody else. I thought they said blind dating! I pointed this ‘anomaly’ out to my said friend and was getting ready to pack my bag and move elsewhere when I got a direct response to something I had said. I was going to just chat a bit before calling it a day when I realized this was a female responding to me. Not only was she female, she was quick, sassy and had a mouth on her. My kind of woman!
Just to make doubly sure, I invited her to a private chat away from the group and she accepted. Cool! A week has passed since that day in the chat room, and in that time we have developed a healthy rapport, we share light banter, discuss serious stuff, and we still set the chat room on fire every time we step in there.
Crazy thing though is that I haven’t met her. But even that is about to be sorted out as there is this ‘come chop’ we both will be attending over the weekend. Usually the days of the week don’t make much of a difference to me, but this week can’t end fast enough. It is this weekend that I will find out if ours is a classic case of UST (Unresolved sexual Tension), or if we are for real and the friendship is solid. Wish me luck as I embark on this ‘quest’, and be sure I will keep you posted on how things progress.
