He saw my picture and profile on the Internet. Yes, the dating site that everyone has been talking about.
Me, I was apprehensive to get on this site. Surely I can get a man without having to announce my looking for one for all the world to see! I was so embarrassed. He saw my picture and wrote me right away.
“Hey there! I saw your picture on the Internet and I'm looking for a girl like you!”
Was this guy some kind of nut? Could he be an ax murderer or pedophile or maybe a felon just out of prison? I was scared to meet him but he told me to meet him in the Chinese Restaurant underneath the red lantern.
I walk in cautiously. I look for a tall man with dark hair and glasses. I hold my breath. What am I getting myself into?
I walk up to a man that looks at me shyly and shakes my hand.
“Hi, I'm Conner. I'm happy to finally meet you.”
I smile, happy inside.
