I have always been a girl to get carried away. It doesn’t take a great deal for my imagination to run riot and I have been oh so easily distracted recently as regular readers will know.
However I came to the realisation late last night that the man I have been emailing on eHarmony is the not the one for me.
I had over embellished his personality to suit my own desires.
He is interested cars – my car knowledge comes from watching Top Gear and I am mostly interested in James May and what colour shirt he is wearing this week!
We are sadly not as compatible as I made out. I was just flattered by the male attention.
He did say he was a geek but after a little bit of time on google, looking up a band he used to play in, I found his own personal website and for want of a better word I found it a little dull.
I am a girl with lots of sparkle and as I texted a friend
“I want a man with Omph.”
“Zero miles per hour? No you need Umph!”
I think I may have just learned the difference – I hope I wasn’t cruel in my last ever email to him!
Meanwhile Simon Mayo played Bonnie Tyler “Holding out for a Hero” to start his show last night. We were sitting down to tea.
“Will you be my hero?” I asked youngest son.
“Yes, but not a superhero. I can’t fly and stuff.” Was his matter-of-fact reply.
So while I wait for my knight with shining umph to ride into town at least I have a hero by my side.
What more can a girl ask for?
