Today is my little (6ft3″) brothers 30th birthday! He’s only 18 months younger than me but still feel a little old now! HAPPY BIRTHDAY LITTLE BIG BOY (he’ll kill me for that!).
So last nights dinner and a movie turned into dinner and drinks which was much better as it turns out we had a lot to talk about. Pride and fear have a lot to answer for but at the end of the day we are all human and can’t help how we feel. No idea what happens now but at least I know what’s going on which is an improvement!
Today I’m wearing this …..
Tights: Dorothy Perkins – they’re teal blue but you can’t really tell because of my terrible lighting!
I love jumper dresses, they are so easy to wear and very toasty at this time of the year.
Hmmmm dating disaster for today……quite a short one, this time from Match.com. A cute guy started emailing me and as usual he was witty and charming (well you aren’t going to be dull and boring in an opening email now are you?!), he was at the top end of my age range (up to 38) but he seemed interesting in his profile, I thought “why not”.
We agreed to meet for some drinks in central London at a very fancy bar that I really liked, his suggestion not mine. As I’ve said before I had listed on my profile that I am an ecdysiast, some people didn’t bother looking it up, some people looked it up and asked questions but weren’t interested in meeting up, some people thought I was joking and some people were fine with it.
Now this bloke, let’s call him Sanctimonious Guy, had asked me out and asked me to meet him at this very fancy bar. I arrive and he’s tall, cute and has a great smile so I thought “finally things are looking up!”. Sanctimonious Guy was sat at the bar so I joined him and we ordered some drinks, I try and start the converation with “So how come you are on Match.com?” it’s proved a good conversation starter in the past, Sanctimonious Guy replies with “well that doesn’t really matter does it, why are you on there? Surely strippers can find enough mugs while they are at work?”! I kind of splutter a bit and ask what he means by “mugs”? Sactimonious Guy then lauches in to a fairly lengthy rant about how strippers are money grabbing, drug taking, lying sluts on their way to “Whore Town”!!!! Ooooooo Mmmmmmm Geeeeeeeee! I get up, excuse myself and walk straight out of the bar, how I didn’t pour my drink all over his head I have no idea!
Now I know some people have this opinion and some ecdysiasts have lived up to this stereotype but the majority are like me, real human beings who enjoy what we do and the freedom it gives us to persue other passions whilst maintaining a great lifestyle. No one forced Sanctimonious Guy to ask me out on a date and he knew right from the get go what I did, he had literally had asked me there to lecture/shout at me! Who knows his reasoning but I have no need for that in my life or to try and justify my life choices to some random nutter! From that day on I made sure my future dates at least had an understanding of the word Ecdysiast and knew that I wasn’t joking!
Lots of Love
