It’s been awhile since I have seriously taken a plunge into the pool of online dating. Today I realized it has been 9 months since my last blog entry. (Wow- that sounded like the beginning of a confession). Life had gotten busy. Work, finishing my second novel, and my side business had taken over the majority of my free time, and it just never seemed like the right opportunity to “go for a swim.” As a young girl you couldn’t get me out of the water. My family had a property with a creek in the backyard. During the two months a year it was warm enough in Canada to swim, I was out in the water- “accidently tipping over the canoe”, jumping off the tire swing, and splashing my friends. Hours would pass. My hands would shrivel up like prunes or my mom would call me inside, and reluctantly I would return to dry land.
After further thought, I feel more like I am considering leaping into the “creek” of cyber love again. A pool is often crystal clear and the water is pristine. Creeks are dark and murky. You can’t see the bottom, and sometimes your feet touch something slimy.
