Flight no part­ner-fest

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - Sin­gle Girl

ma­tron read­ing Catholic News and to my left a Scot­tish chap in his 70s (he told me his age). He was read­ing a book on the slave trade in East Africa. Ap­par­ently it was fas­ci­nat­ing, he couldn’t put it down. Mean­while, I’ve been ‘‘chat­ting’’ on the dat­ing web­site with a lo­cal guy. I was scep­ti­cal given how much fo­cus his pro­file put on bik­ing and kayak­ing, but this is Queen­stown. This pro­file was cer­tainly not the first I’d read from some­one who on pa­per at least was an ac­tion man. Then the fate­ful ques­tion – can I see a photo? In fair­ness I’d seen his photo and we all know you have to be at­tracted to some­one to date them. My photo beamed off into cy­berspace. I haven’t heard from him since. I’m not sure what’s worse – the si­lence or the ‘‘sorry, you’re not my type’’ re­sponse. I guess it’s life – a pic­ture tells a thou­sand words. I hate to think what his re­ac­tion would have been if I’d sent a bad photo! Next time, air­brush­ing!
