Introductory Post: Freckles

Hi, I'm Freckles. I'm a 24 year old female and I've recently decided to give OkCupid a shot seeing as most guys who were seriously hitting on me were either 35-40 years old. A bit too old for my liking.

I almost gave up on OkCupid. Maybe I'm super picky, but I don't find men who tell me how lonely they are very attractive. I also do not appreciate my self portraits being criticized, thank you very much. If you like me, don't message me to tell me my photos are all wrong.

Finally a message came that was worth responding to. It was well written and it was evident that my profile was read before a message was created. And he was cute, not in his 30s (or 40s+) and intelligent. All good things.

Soon, a date was set up. Dinner. My nerves were all frazzled but we clicked pretty immediately.

He's from a small-ish town (like I am) and he smiled a lot. We talked about topics that ranged from the silly to the serious. He seemed to find me humorous and I happened to find him charming.

So charming, in fact, that I got into his car to continue the date at a bar. We got a few more drinks there and listened to a crazy conglomeration of music. (The music seemed to be mostly from our middle school and high school dance days.)

And at the end of the date, we hugged (and then kissed a bit) and we went our separate ways.

I've already started the ball rolling on date #2. I hope it goes well, I got good feelings from this guy.

For blogging purposes, I've decided his name will be "Jude."

  1. I would just like to say hi and that I think its cool that you were using OkCupid to meet this date. I read that and knew I had to comment. I went through the same process. What I wanted to say is that there really are cool people on there when you look around and give it a bit (and also weed out the 40+-ers or those who just want to get in your pants). I actually met someone on there myself. Ended up dating, and now am married to him. We've been together over 4 years now and are as happy as ever. I wish you the best of luck in your dating adventures!
