Hey now, I'm single, too, and that shouldn't stop all you/us (haejin, yellow, etc.) single folks from posting a "story", even if it's an oldie. My story at the beginning of this thread is from many years ago. So, chippety chop, post it! (No pressure..... ) (And I'm sure you can find a nice juicy fruit somewhere in that orchard of yours, Yellow. )
I just have to say that I'm lovin' all these stories here (John, yours too). So fun to read!
Here, I'll resort to telling a story about someone else: A friend of mine was taking several university courses, and a design professor teaching classes nearby asked her to pose for him (for a portrait). Yeah, he was incredibly cute, and yeah, he was single, and yeah, he was close to her age, and yeah, it's such a cheesy line...but it worked! They've been as one ever since. (And yeah, it's so cliche', but it worked! - even though I have to say that I was a bit of cold water at the beginning, i.e. I thought this sounded sooooo cheesy of the guy, and I sort of told her he sounded like a dork for this and did she really WANT to date a dork? It was just soooo...cliche', and sooo obvious that he didn't need a model for his paintings and just wanted to ....well....but hey, she went for it and they're incredibly happy now, and I really like him and the bonus is that I get to make fun of him for this, and he laughs good-naturedly. )
