I'd decided just to tip my toes in the dating pool. I was tired of going to local concerts alone. It's been fun at indy outlets like The Snare but Shonen Knife was sad by myself.
So I opened up an OK Cupid profile and said pretty much that. I wasn't looking for hook ups. I wasn't looking for a long term relationship. I just wanted someone to go to the shows or a movie with.
That was Saturday night. Irene messaged me on Sunday night, saying she liked my profile.
I told her that I told that to my profile that and was greeted by a blank stare and an awkward silence. And then my profile chided me. "She likes ME? It's never about ME? It's always about YOU!"
(On hearing this, my friend Nadia said, "So your game is having an absurd amount of anti-game.")
A week of messaging followed. I took my OKC profile down on Saturday. And we met in person on Sunday. When we met, we both felt like we had known each other all of our lives.
Today we made it Facebook official.
She's funny. She's fierce. She says "fuck" even more than Jenn used to when she was alive.
She brings a new clarity to my life, to everything I do. She makes me want to be the best me that I can be.
