Online Dating: Meeting People I Already Kinda Know

8 Nov

You know when you see someone, and you are certain you know them, but can’t place it?   This is something that rarely ever happens to me, and that’s because usually within seconds, my brain pieces together who the person is.   But, I had a moment the other day where my brain was taking it’s merry time, and it drove me crazy.

I got a message from someone online that I knew I knew.  I immediately responded, “I am not sure why or how, but I know you.”  and then went into investigator mode.  I asked him hundreds of questions.. (Okay, not hundreds.. I exaggerate..) to the point where I think he was getting annoyed.   (And also for all my male readers who think I am an evil bitch, I HAVE talked with him about other things too..)

I did manage to figure it out.

I have never fully understood the tweets and sayings that go “That awkward moment when..”   and I am quite sure only a small percentage of you could actually relate with this…  but…   It’s definitely an awkward moment when you have to convince someone that you photographed them 8 years ago, with their now ex-girlfriend.. and to prove as such, send a picture text of said photo, that for some odd reason you still have.  (I used to work at a chain photo studio..)

I have yet to tell him the reason why I still have it is because it was in my “These are cute guys” folder…  I’ll save that for if we actually start dating..  However given the creepiness factor,  I’d be surprised if he isn’t running for the hills.

    What an awesome story for the grandkids. “I photographed Grampa with his first girlfriend, and I thought he was cute enough to put in my portfolio, and years later he fell in love with me!”
