Sick­ness and cob­webs prompt the de­sire for com­pany

Central Otago Mirror - - FRONT PAGE -

It’s a sad state of af­fairs when it’s a dose of food poi­son­ing or an af­ter­noon wa­terblast­ing the out­side of the house that makes me want to meet a nice man some­time soon. Want­ing some­one to be around when you’re un­der the weather or you need the cob­webs gone is what it’s come to. It hasn’t been an overly suc­cess­ful start to the year on the man­hunt­ing front although I did smile ear­lier this week see­ing a cou­ple of gor­geous ac­quain­tances out and about. Firstly, mooching around Re­mark­ables Park over the week­end I ran into an old work­mate from way back whose name I’d for­got­ten. The next day I spot­ted an­other ob­ject of my af­fec­tion cross­ing the road as I drove through the streets giv­ing him a cheeky grin out the win­dow. It made me won­der if it might be a good idea to fo­cus on peo­ple I vaguely know in real life as op­posed to the in­ter­net. Bite the bul­let and ask them out. But there’s the age-old de­bate about whether men like to do the ask­ing them­selves. I’m still un­de­cided. I do have an in­ter­net date pen­cilled in next week, but he doesn’t live in Queen­stown. I’m not get­ting my hopes up. My last date with some­one who didn’t live here in­volved in­ter­ro­ga­tion about my salary and much harp­ing on about Queen­stown prices. Some­one re­luc­tant to spend money on the good things in life is un­likely to get far with me. Even if a sec­ond date might even­tu­ally clear the cob­webs. Happy Valen­tines Day!
