Men weren’t part of my Q1 plan.
Yes I have a quarterly plan. Don’t judge me.
Anyway, after my pre Christmas dating disasters I decided to check myself out of the dating world, at least for a few more months. I have bigger fish to fry, in fact the 3 Fs became my Q1 mantra: Fitness, Family and Finances. No room for men. They were outside my sphere of influence and so why on earth was I trying to control it.
It was going through one of my Fs – finances – that I noticed I hadn’t completely checked out of the dating world. It turns out you need to jumps through a few hoops to cancel your eHarmony account otherwise they just keep taking money out of your account. So there I was with another 2 months access to go.
And so I went shopping. Had a look around and ended up in the painful Q&A process eHarmony serves up with Mr VP. It was his smile that first struck me, big and laughy. He looked fun. He was also very tall. At 195cm, he was a whole head taller than me. Older at 42 seemed a refreshing change from the immature games I’d put up with in the past. I went with it. After all, it’s not like I have anything to lose.
Except maybe my sanity.
