Our Spring Wedding with A Mixed Up Theme 25.05.2018
I have read a few planning threads and saw how it is a good way to get everything down on paper (well actually a computer screen!) and possibly get some great advice. I thought I would do my own, I cannot promise it will be any good but I think it will help me and maybe others in some small way!
So without further ado, here it is!
A little bit of background information.....
M and I met via Internet dating (ahhh!).
I had tried it before and been on about two dates, one was perfectly lovely but wasn't quite right for me, just didn't feel any connection there. The other date was a drunken disaster, I cringe a bit when I think about it now! I decided to stop for a while because it just wasn't happening, I would talk to people but wouldn't get as far as meeting. I thought hopefully I would just bump into someone and we would click or meet someone through friends. I tried not to force it as much as I didn't want to be alone I also didn't want to be with the wrong person.
A few months later a friend tried Internet dating and found a really lovely guy (they are still together now after a few years) and so after a few weeks I thought, 'Why not have another crack at it...' Signed up and set up my profile as you do..... The particular website I was on has a feature where you can 'wink' at people. One day I get a notification that someone had 'winked' at me so I though, 'Ok, fair enough' checked their profile and there was M! I read his profile and I can't remember the exact wording but it said something along the lines of 'wants someone intellectual' Well I thought that I didn't really fit that bill. I'm not stupid, I have my own opinions, thoughts, feelings. I think I'm an interesting person but I don't feel I always express myself well (but that's a different story!) So I wrote him off on the basis I didn't think I was clever enough for him. Well M didn't give up! He must have winked about 5 times!! I was like 'Who is this man!??' He wouldn't message though, just wink! So I messaged him and we started messaging back and forth but I wasn't really feeling it, he seemed keen and kept it going but I wasn't very nice! I'd take ages to reply! I then felt really guilty and thought maybe I should arrange a date as he seemed so nice compared to a lot of guys I've met who weren't as bothered about me.
Well this has turned into quite the essay! I will continue but don't feel you have to read it!
