So who better than to hit up for a heart-to-heart on the topic.
Especially, I'll bet, because 8 years after we last dated and 5 years since he got married, Bill might be weary from trying to solve my singleness.

Subject: Talk to me
What else is going on?From: Karin
Marathon next weekend is what’s going on. I feel creaky. But try to remember that’s usually what I feel about now.
My Sunday-night date, ugh, still hasn’t gotten back to me. This is so tiresome. Do I smell?From: Bill
You do not smell. Is this another ok cupid date?From: Karin
Although it was a really normal date. Ended normally. He acted normally. Etc. Did not have the get-rich-quick-scheme vibe of someone who just wants to casually date.
I disagree that I don’t smell. I can’t otherwise explain bad communication habits in others.From: Bill
Maybe he just wasn’t interested.From: Karin
Lets try a new dating site maybe? Or take an online dating break and maybe meet someone out somewhere?
We need a new strategy here my friend.
To: Bill (the married man)
Sure, I’ll try a new strategy. I think you’re all set.From: Bill
True, I am not looking.From: Karin
To: Bill (the Senior Media Buyer/Planner)
Sorry to harass you. You sounded like a Senior Media Buyer/Planner there for a second.From: Bill
But as the strategist you are, if you have any wise ideas, let me know. I do have a feeling of “been-there, done-that” with, um, just about everything.
Well, how about a total moratorium on blogging and OK cupid to start? 2 weeks. Instead, use another dating site, or go out somewhere you’ve always wanted to go buy haven’t been or rarely go to. The MFA is opening that new wing, must be having some party to celebrate it. Just throwing some ideas out there….From: Karin
Not bad ideas.From: Bill
What rationale for the blogging moratorium….distraction? negativity?
Simple change. You stay up late to blog. Get more rest by taking a break.From: Karin
Ah. Can I use this conversation as today’s blog topic? It would preclude me from staying up too late tonight ....
