Well, my friends, I’m back from attending my first ever RWA (Romance Writers of America) conference, and it was everything I hoped it would be and so much more! Now, brace yourselves, grab a snack. Be sure to stay hydrated. This post reached epic length about halfway through typing it…
So…I went on a date last night. A really, REALLY great one. And now I’m gonna tell you about it!
Philippe (or Phil, or Bill…more on that shortly) and I “met” on OkCupid and chatted back and forth for a little over a week. He seemed like a gentlemanly kind of guy, very sweet and responsive, but not too clingy. He asked me if I liked Greek food (hell yeah!) and invited me to one of his favourite places for dinner.
Well, my friends, I’ve officially deleted my Tinder profile. Yes. It’s true. I’ll let you all digest that for a moment.
Don’t fret, though, because I haven’t given up on the dating scene altogether. I’m just exploring other options. My latest exploration…OkCupid. It’s an app that has the swipe left or right feature as well, but this one encourages more in-depth bios, and it allows all users to send each other messages. Essentially, you message anyone who tickles your fancy.
In other words, you end up with eleventy billion messages from weirdos you want nothing to do with. Now, since I’m a generous person, I’ve decided to share some of those conversation starters with you. The magnificent Maggie Wells, author extraordinaire, will be providing her always-entertaining commentary. Poor guys never stood a chance. Ready? Here we go!
Well, you’re in luck! That is, of course, if you live in the Ottawa area. I’m participating in my first author panel! Check this out!
