I love your stories Bonnie. Frankly, I’m just not extroverted enough to do the online dating thing anymore. But, I’m good with that, thank you, got a pretty good thing going on right now anyway.

First, I liked your old profile picture more. See, I’m more of a “mystery is more interesting” kinda guy. But, that’s a personal preference. You definitely should do you, whatever that is. I just liked the old one more. Personal preference. Your mileage may vary.

I have literally NEVER dated a blond. Not for any good reason. Like bald guys aren’t your type, blond women aren’t mine. There is absolutely NO good reason for that. I just don’t even see them when I’m looking. It’s really weird because I’ve seen plenty (including you) that are positively beautiful. I guess I just don’t consider myself in their league. And yet, I’m not bothered by that. But I imagine I’ve missed meeting a good number of really great women because I discounted them for some nefarious reason that has no basis in fact. And that’s a problem for me because I like to think of myself as a pretty non-judgemental, egalitarian kind of guy. And yet, here I am, missing something like a third of the women out there that are probably intelligent, wonderful people, and I don’t even see them. You bring a whole new insight into both my unexamined biases and a woman’s view of the dating world to me. And that’s why I love reading your stories. Well, that and the music. :)

Keep on keeping on. I enjoy your view on life.
