Klaus, the psychic to the stars, had a hunch about dating
After a two year sabbatical from the Wide Wonderful World of Internet Dating, Erin decided to consult with Klaus, the “Psychic to the Stars”, as to whether she should get back in the game. Divorced for three years, had already been the Poor Little Match.com girl once, enjoyed a flurry of dates, met a passel of men and said made a lot of ‘friends’. And, she met Dennis.
Whoa! He had an Altar Ego
Erin dated Dennis for three wonderful months. It took that long for her to fully realize he was in a huge rush to the altar. Any altar – with any one. It was too much, too soon for her. They parted amicably. Next.
She booked an appointment and was finally seated across from the famous Klaus; a small, marble-topped, table between them. After shuffling an over-sized deck of faded and worn Tarot cards, he had her deal seven cards. He looked at the cards, briefly. Without missing a beat he said, “Darling, Internet dating, really? You will be fishing in the same pond.”
She looked at him quizzically and as he scooped up the cards with a flourish, he said, “It will be all the same men, darling.” No, no, say it isn’t so.
Erin is an optimist in all things romantic. She defied the prediction and defiantly climbed aboard the 2015 Dating Train. It had been awhile; she wasn’t sure of the pace or the new bells and whistles on the site.
Stepping on a treadmill that is ‘On’ at full speed?
Like a blast from the past, she had a surreal feeling of deja vu. After paying the toll to enter the coy pond of dating life, she quickly realized old Klaus made a point.
After a two years hiatus – a veritable parade of very familiar faces danced before her on the computer screen. So many of the same old pictures of the men she remembered were still posted. And, magically, none of them had aged! They were all still 50…and she was two years older.
As she scanned the photos and realized a ton of these men hadn’t even updated their pictures. She remembered the winkin, blinkin and nods involved in the on line-dating dance.
She could do this. Game on. And so it begins…No more Old Maid
