This Is How We Date Now

We don’t commit now. We don’t see the point. They’ve always said there are so many fish in the sea, but never before has that sea of fish been right at our fingertips on OkCupid, Tinder, Grindr, Dattch, take your pick. We can order up a human being in the same way we can order up pad thai on Seamless. We think intimacy lies in a perfectly-executed string of emoji. We think effort is a “good morning” text. We say romance is dead, because maybe it is, but maybe we just need to reinvent it. Maybe romance in our modern age is putting the phone down long enough to look in each other’s eyes at dinner. Maybe romance is deleting Tinder off your phone after an incredible first date with someone. Maybe romance is still there, we just don’t know what it looks like now.

“Hi I’m imperfect, who are you”

imperfection2Are we honest enough to own up to our imperfections?

Are we open enough to accept and embrace them?

Sadly for many this seems an impossibility.   I see posts on various sites stating all the good points about someone, yeah that’s great .. but what I want is someone who knows their faults and owns them.  Accepting them and being responsible for them, instead of blaming others.

I see posts all the time from people looking for their “perfect woman” … such a thing does not exist .. it is not our perfections that make us compatible with another .. but our imperfections that match.

When you build a wall, the bricks are staggered, they are not perfectly lined up to match.  It is the staggering of these bricks that give the wall strength.   A relationship is no different.

I have just returned from a short break in Benidorm .. 3 nights in the company of 28 other ex army women …

I haven’t laughed so much in a long, long time … at one point I had to give up eating my dinner because I laughed so much (perhaps copious amounts of vodka and cava had something to do with it!)

I really enjoyed my wee break .. It was my first visit to Benidorm and we stayed in the old town .. I didn’t have too much time to explore as we also had a full day trip to Valentia .. which also was beautiful .. I really want to return to both.. and it was lovely to be able to sit in the sun after the awful weather we have been having here in Scotland (I still have my heating on and it is the 3rd of June!)

I shall let the pictures speak for themselves ….
