02 Oct Meeting Your Perfect Match
So it’s a Friday night and you’re waiting at a table for two, anxiously taking a look around, looking for the gal you’ve been chatting with for a week. It started with the all-too-familiar wink, a fast flirtatious comment, and then, eventually, exchanging numbers. And then it ensued: informal texting about random stuff in the day, and you found that, astoundingly, you were actually associating with this person: making fun of her sense of humor, intrigued by her pretty face, curious about the things she had to say. And your heart began to hope that maybe this was someone who could actually be something, a diamond in the rough of online dating.
And here’s the thing: the seek for love is as old as time, everyone looking for a connection with a sweetheart, someone they can rely on, share life’s road with, someone to hold and love. And more than ever before, people use dating apps to associate with others and meet up. Apparently this hasn’t been a fixture of our time alone. If they’ve had any exposure to it, this letter from the Civil War would remind anyone of today’s online dating world.
Pardon the caring familiarity but you know its all in fun. Your lovely little message has just gotten to me, and I do myself the honor to answer it quickly, thus complying with your request to write soon.
Before going ahead farther truth and candor compel me to acknowledge that a little desception was used in the advertisement in the ‘Waverly.’ In other words my true description differs materially from the one therein set forth, and may not please you as well as the one “fancy painted,” but I thought it recommended fun, therefore funningly gave an imaginary description including cognomen. Be it known unto you then, this individual is twenty-nine years of age, five feet and eleven inches high, dark blue eyes, brown hair, and light (ruddy) complexion. There you have it. How do you like the descripion? Me thinks I hear you answer. I don’t like it so well as the advertised description.”
When you look at the exact physical description this soldier provides, one is advised of sorting fields on dating apps, having the ability to specify your preferences and what you want, down to physical traits you want: height, body type, hair color, etc. And that’s just the beginning of it. Religious preference, occupation, education, hobbies, books you’ve loved, exercise habits, whether you smoke or drink, and whether you have or want kids are just some of the other available sorting fields.
And the crazy thing is? It works. Sometimes. People actually get together and take it all the way to the chapel and Pachelbel’s Canon and rose petals and all that jazz as an effects of these apps. And maybe it went on for you, too. And now, you’re in the throes of wedding planning, seeking to get all your ducks in a row for the big day.
When it involves wedding planning, there are so many things to think about. Is the reception going to be in a barn or at the country club? What colors do you want? Whose work do you like enough to have them be the photographer and capture one of the most important days of your life? Flowers? Dress style? Rehearsal dinner location? DJ for the event? And, certainly, how you plan to get the wedding party around from event to event in a seamless fashion (especially with lots of folks flying in from out of town who have no idea their way around!). But hey … we can help you there. Wedding transportation is one of the important things we excel at, whether you want one
of our coaches for the wedding party, a bachelorette party, or to transport guests via shuttle for the reception.
