Great ex­pec­ta­tions

Central Otago Mirror - - WANAKA FEATURES -

Aswe all know the weather has been far from glo­ri­ous for this time of the year. De­spite that I dragged my­self out one evening for a walk on the Kelvin Heights Track. I came across a guy walk­ing some kind of mixed breed ter­rier and had a chat. He was a friendly and pleas­ant chap. It made the walk worth­while. I shall keep a look out of for him again. In the mean­time another friend is torn about a guy she met over Christ­mas at a mate’s bar­be­cue. I’m not sure what sur­prises me most – a sunny day in Queen­stown or that she met a po­ten­tial date there know­ing the host and his meat­head Holde­nob­sessed friends. Any­way, she re­ally likes this guy. But dare I say it; she an­nounced he’s just not in­tel­li­gent enough for her. It’s a harsh call. Ap­par­ently he’s great in many ways but not in the brains depart­ment. I’ve stuck in my 10 cents worth – ditch him now to save heart­break and angst fur­ther down the track. Let’s face it, once the ini­tial ‘‘new man’’ ex­cite­ment has worn off, one re­ally wants some­one ca­pa­ble of a de­cent con­ver­sa­tion. An ar­ti­cle I read con­cluded that 8 out of 10 is good enough in a re­la­tion­ship. I like to think I wouldn’t set­tle for less than 10 out of 10 but that’s prob­a­bly why I’m still sin­gle! ◗ Queen­stown’s Sin­gle Girl is look­ing for true love.
