After a very brief foray into the world of online dating, I have decided that I will stick to my flower and vegetable gardens.
I’m sure there are some lovely gentlemen out there in the land of match.com and zoosk, but apparently those gems are not interested in me. I have gotten a lot of “looks”, but I don’t really understand how that constitutes dating. I have also received some smiley faces and hearts, but once again, what do I do with these?
In response, I have said “Hi! Hope your day is going well.” and receive….wait for it…..crickets….. Maybe they have too many irons in the fire, maybe they’re just not into me or maybe they aren’t paying members so can’t respond. I completely understand not wanting to pay for the site. I am a “paying member” until December because I found a 50% off code. (There is almost always a code if there is a space for one!😄)
The ones that are VERY eager to meet me have names that I imagine are not their given names. Love4U, Likes2Snuggle and BetterNMost are some of my choices. Apparently I am too picky because the apps continue to disregard my age and distance perimeters. Tonight a match popped up that was cute, “liked* me, and even had a real name, so I “liked” him only to discover that he is from Las Vegas. Hmmm, even with Allegiant Airlines, that is a bit more of a commute than I want 😄
While watering my gardens tonight, I found this sweet little strawberry in the shape of a heart. It was almost as if it was saying to me, “It’s okay, Beth, WE still love you.”
My dear little strawberry, cucumbers, tomatoes and flowers, I love you too! ❤ With you I know exactly where I stand. As long as I give you some attention and water you each day, you reward me with beautiful blooms or yummy treats. If I see you wilting a bit, I know you need my attention. We don’t need emojis to communicate and you are all right here in my yard so no long distance travel is required. I will be here for you until the season ends and we part for a while and are reunited when once again spring returns.
Yours truly, Beth ❤
