It’s been a long while since I last posted – and to be honest, the main reason for that – well… it started that night.
See, the reason for the long hiatus – it’s about a boy.
Now, he’s no Hugh Grant…
But to me he’s definitely the Australian version!
See I dated quite a bit when I got to Australia (naturally). Bars, Tinder, the Craigslist ad equivalent on Australia’s site Gumtree.
None of it was getting me anywhere.
Not that i was looking for anything serious! I mean – just coming here for a year of working holiday fun!
But I decided to try another new avenue. The OKCupid avenue.
I’d been on OKC before, back in university, and it didn’t work out so hot for me… not to mention my friends’ online experiences, or the ones like poor Jules from “Go Jules Go” had.
But I decided to give it another shot. Might meet some new people.
So my first night on there was the night of my last post. Oct 27
I made the profile, wrote up a lot of information, and spent several hours happily filling in the questions (seriously, you can get really time-lost filling out the questions!)
First things first:
Search for highest percentage men within a reasonable distance from myself. (Aka, for me that was around 15km or so – I still don’t really get that in mileage, but just knew that public transport-wise, it could still be doable)
The first space position: A guy with a 96% match rating to me.
Everything is amazing – his profile is essentially things I’d write about myself. His questions are in complete agreement with mine – and the additional explanations either make me nod with, “I TOTALLY understand what you mean!” or laugh. Out loud. As in literal Lol’ing.
I took the plunge. I wrote to him.
I wrote to him!
And now it’s been 4 months.
Don’t get me wrong – it hasn’t been perfect.
But I’ve been happy. Happier than I intended on being.
Happy enough that at times it scares me a little. (Romantic feelings and I are not very acquainted with each other – we’re having to learn to get along…)
Happy enough to try to stay in Australia longer.
So for now – it looks like the adventure will continue a bit longer.
And for now – I really need to get myself back on track with updating😉
