Changing the subject

Since I blew my new year’s resolution of watching every film in the IMDb top 250, I’ve decided to make work of my 2nd resolution. Since it’s seemingly impossible for me to find a love interest IRL, I’m going back online. You heard me! Online dating, here I go (again)!

After a brief attempt to online date a year and a half ago, I have now reactivated my account, leading to some trips to Memory Lane and embarrassing conversations. 

Seeing as I do not live in London anymore and some of my interests have changed, I started by updating my profile. Apparently you get more visual on other people’s pages when you update your info, so I started getting some response quite quickly. Two people actually started chatting. (Oh my, I forgot there was a chat function!) These two men had already been in touch with me in my previous online dating extravaganza, so I dove back into my old messages to see who they were. Hmm. Let’s leave it at that. 

Result 14 hours into the Dating Project 2.0:

12 guys messaged me.

Saddest message: ‘Can U dialog with me?’

2 chats. In all fairness, I did disconnect the chat option after that.

1 link to a brilliant song that has been on repeat for the last hour.

Half a day off from work was in all probability wasted online.

To be continued…


Yesterday I challenged myself to watch every film from IMDb’s list of 250 best films ever. I have one year to do so. 

Today, I started by watching Stand By Me (currently at #176). I remember seeing it a long time ago, but only now I understand the beauty of it. 

If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. You won’t regret it.
