Is it because I haven't seen any interesting men? Experienced super cute stuff? Writers block? Nope, I just didn't make time to write things online.
I guess we need to catch up, right? This year has so far been complicated.
In the middle of last year, I have decided to pick up "the" dating once again. Calling "the" dating doesn't make it sound fancier unfortunately, perhaps "la datation"? A little bit, right? French makes it sound all Oeh lala. Except so far I have missed the romance and the wooing, neither online or offline. People should chat like in the old days, a real conversation as a human-being.
The world outside of the mobile phone, wait what am I saying? It doesn't exist! Most people are staring at their mobile phones! It was already hard enough to notice certain queues, that men make like walking/standing closer to you (as if he's a spy, but you definitely notice), lean in when they talk or smile in a distance. The last one, is so hard to see when you are in a museum or somewhere half dark! But there was a humour side to it all, you either hit or miss or you just don't get it. In my case, I don't notice the difference between a flirt and a friendly conversation. It is all a friendly conversation! Until you are in my comfort zone or ask me out for a drink. How do you read someone, who is holding a mobile phone or have earbuds in their ears?
The definition for "conversation", according the the Oxford dictionary is "A talk, especially an informal one, between two or more people, in which news and ideas are exchanged".
And "woo", "Try to gain the love of (someone), especially with a view to marriage."
Why am I quoting these definitions? I miss stories like the movie "Sleepless in Seattle" (1993) distance doesn't matter or the innocence of "An affair to remember" (1957) and the meeting like in "Serendipity" (2001). The tease, the efforts you make to get to know someone and the adventures you want to have with that someone. Men have become lazy *sticks tongue out* or have I started a conversation with someone who I can have many adventures with?
What else... Ah, the moving! I will be moving into my new apartment at the end of this year. At least, I think so. Will it be finished? On which floor are they working on now? Do I know where I can find my parquet on time? Or who will I choose to paste my wallpaper? Gaaaaahhhh...
Then there is death, sickness and all the other life sucks moments. I guess, you are all caught up now.
Line of today: I want to have many many lovely adventures!
