This is the first of a series of blogs that I am going to venture down the road and write about. The powers that be thought it would be funny since I’m 45 and embarking on the ever so scary dating scene. I hope you enjoy.
Who would have known that I would be looking at the dating scene again at 45? Certainly not me and yet here I am. God does have a sense of humor doesn’t he? Funny how many things have changed since the last time I was dating…22 years ago. For starters, there are so many new ways to get in touch with someone. There’s cell phones, Facebook. MySpace, Email, texting, Skype…and probably a ton of other avenues that I have yet to uncover. While I have not taken the first step out into the Sassy, Single Scene yet, it makes me wonder what you do if the date goes bad. It is not just a matter of giving someone your wrong home number…they can track you on the internet. So while I agree that we have come along way since the “dark ages” (as my children fondly call it) dating definately seems to be going down a path I have yet to travel.
Does anyone other than me remember a time when the guy actually did all of the calling and actually spoke the words…”would you like to have dinner?” Now a date can come by some words dancing across the screen of your cell phone (another thing we didn’t have). So much of the personal touch. In fact you don’t even have to go and buy a card anymore…you can get one via your email and someone (had to be a man) came up with virtual roses. What? My next blog will be about how to look 25 pounds thinner for your first date…ok…nobody came up with that app…but I am going to embark on that as well and report to you on how my weight loss project is going. Talk about putting it all out there on a blog. Kisses Bellas. Deborah Stilettos www.DeborahStilettos.com
