Preparing to take the bull by the horns, so to speak
It’s now six months since I started sharing my single-girl life with Mirror readers. It would be an exaggeration to say I’ve been bombarded with offers from eligible suitors but a few chaps have got in touch via the Mirror. One sounded promising but I chickened out of doing anything about it when I realised a close link between him and a third party in my circle. He’d not given his name either, which I didn’t like. Admittedly, I’m in no position to criticise others for being nameless but often men who won’t tell you their name are married. Just when it seemed that no-one reads the column an email was sent to my charming editor. The writer could not be identified on Facebook so I might have to take the old-fashioned approach and actually talk to him. Perhaps a blind date is on the cards. I’ve always thought traditional blind dates engineered by mutual friends are a good idea. Ideally your friends have your best interests at heart and a reasonable idea of the sort of person you might be suited to. Generally we like the kind of people our friends like. In the rollercoaster world of dating there are situations that work out well and others best seen as learning curves. But sometimes you just have to take the bull by the horns and see what happens. I shall report back on developments with the mystery man. ◗ Queenstown’s Single Girl is looking for true love. Advice and potential candidates should be emailed to email@example.com.
