Catch and Release is the new modus operandi…
My good friend, Mike, is an avid fly fisherman with a handful of favorite rivers in Patagonia and Helena. His Montana license plate reads: carp D um.
A big proponent of Catch and Release, Mike also has a unique approach to online dating. He knows his way around a fluke and a sole, knows when to angle and when to perch. He knows from koi.
With a half dozen years under his belt as a suddenly-single-again male, he has developed some interesting dating techniques. Based on the old catch and release philosophy, he meets, greets, calls, emails and connects with a wide range of women on two different dating services on line.
He is a ‘reel’ guy with an innate curiosity and openness.
Mike is not coy – far from it. A CPA, by training, he calls on line dating “the numbers game.” Like the patient fisherman he is, he throws a few lines in the water every week and sees what transpires.
You have to love his well-modulated and persistent approach. He recently reported that he had hung up his metaphorical fishing rod and was dating the love of his life – (a mermaid, in his eyes) and he is the happiest he has been in years. Yea, Mike!
His big brotherly advice, “On line dating is a numbers game.” Don’t be coy – don’t be shy – make the first move.
