In other news

the Nutkinous one has made a promising connection on the Cherub of Adequacy, and after two marathon phone calls and a hajillion emails we moved our date to nearly a week earlier than we'd originally planned. Both of us hoping that we aren't building things up, expectation-wise, yet also unwilling to wait until our originally scheduled meeting was happening.

Paradise is not without its thorns, there is a 2+ hour distance. There is a nice midway point to meet, but we are somewhat bummed about long term prospects.

But, as Ted Kennedy said, "We'll drive off that bridge when we come to it."

Good, but you might want to avoid the pseudo-historical grammar on the first date.

Pro tip 2: Do not discuss the middle east on the first date. Especially if the girl is from Lebannon...

Hear Ye, Hear Ye, Online daters do better in the marriage stakes!

Quote:
Couples in the United States who meet online seem to enjoy at least as much marital bliss as those who meet in more traditional venues, according to the results of an online survey of more than 19,000 people funded by online dating service eHarmony.

The survey's participants consisted of people who married between 2005 and 2012. About 35% reported that they had met their spouse online, more than through introductions by friends, work and school combined. The study revealed that people who used this method to meet their spouses were slightly older, wealthier, more educated and more likely to be employed than those who went with tradition.
