21 Nov Meeting Your Match
So it’s a Friday night and you’re sitting at a table for two, anxiously checking out, looking for the gal you’ve been chatting with for a week. It began with the all-too-familiar wink, a quick enticing comment, and afterwards, eventually, exchanging numbers. And after that 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, intrigued by the things she had to say. And your heart began to hope that maybe this was a person who could actually be something, a diamond in the rough of online dating.
And here’s the thing: the search for love is as old as time, everyone looking for a connection with a sweetheart, someone they can confide in, share life’s road with, someone to hold and love. And more than ever before, people use dating apps to connect with others and meet up.
Pardon the affectionate familiarity but you know its all in fun. Your charming little message has just arrived at me, and I do myself the honor to answer it quickly, thus complying with your request to write soon.
Before proceeding farther truth and candor compel me to accept that a little deception 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 was all for fun, therefore funnily 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 description? Me thinks I hear you answer. I don’t like it so well as the presented description.”
When you go over 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 like: height, physique, hair color, etc. And that’s just the beginning of it. Religious preference, occupation, education, hobbies, books you’ve loved, exercise habits, whether you drink or smoke, and whether you have or want kids are just some of the other available sorting fields.
And the crazy thing is? 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 a result of these apps. And now, you’re in the struggles of wedding planning, striving to get all your ducks in a row for the big day.
When it comes to wedding planning, there are so many things to think about. And, of course, 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 don’t know their way around!). Wedding transportation is one of the things we excel at, whether you want one of our Boston Massachusetts party bus for the wedding party, a bachelorette party, or to transport guests via shuttle for the reception.
On the other hand you assembled– whether it was today’s equivalent of that Civil War letter, or by meeting someone in a more typical, old-fashioned encounter, we’d love to be involved in how you celebrate a marriage. Being a part of your wedding day is not lost on us and we want our service to reflect the value of the occasion … for you and your guests!
