Her shopping list for Mr Right was too long

new-years-eve-1905142__340

She calles herself “Sexie Sindie.” She is on the lookout for The Perfect Man. She has a shopping list a mile long.

She won’t date a man who has been divorced more than once or who is living in a studio apartment. She doesn’t like cats, dogs, bicyclists swathed in lycra, men who smoke or vegetarians.

She can’t stand men who don’t use the turn signal while driving and will not tolerate any who use their middle finger to display anger. She hates to see a man driving a car with a dog in his lap. Eating donuts is a very big NO. She has been called a “Picky Eater” by friends and foe. She will be in a panic if it isn’t organic. Sugar is her enemy and she loathes all white foods. Her friends marvel at her love for Kale and Quinoa. The two are her staples, she dabbles in organic spinach and cabbage and Pressed Juices. Yes, she is very very thin

 

What she does like: is a single, employed or retired, guy who owns his own house. A pool ( sauna, spa, ) is extra “points.”  Her long list of “Must Haves” reeks of gold-digger.

She admits to her best friends,  her tiny studio apartment, in the beautiful old building, is a “buzzkill” and she never allows a date to enter her private chambers.

Sindie dated Thomas for three months before he gave up trying to make her happy. He wined and dined her. On their 10th date he gave her a Tiffany heart and she offered a polite “Thank you” and later tucked it her her jewelry drawer. She had sold three other Tiffany Heart gifts on eBay. His would be next. She dubbed Thomas “irrelevant” and moved on.    Alone. Single. Searching and very unhappy.

Mr Right? Not right now

Harry decided to push the envleope and rock the online dating world.

After six years of posting that old photo – he decided, “What the hell?”

He concluded he would  get a lot more attention by posting interesting (aka bizarre) photos.

Week Number Two:

He garnered zero attention. Go figure.

Week Number Three:

Our pal, Harry, decided to bring out the big guns and Go Big!

His pals said he was crazy. Women rarely responded.

He kept up the charade for a month of rejection before he resorted to contacting me for sometough love and serious dating tips.

Here we go!

  Romance, hope, and optimism are in the air and we are taking in large gulps of same.

The Yoga Babes of  San Francisco unanimously dubbed  Tango/ Halifax with Derek Jacobi  and Anne Reid as “Must See TV.”

he is endearing, playful and kind.”

Certainly, the BBC series touches upon the lives of Alan and Celia’s adult children and grandchildren – but the spot-light and the real story is the love story of two people falling in love -after a 60 year intermission.

“Tango in Halifax stars Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid as widowed septuagenarians, Alan and Celia, childhood sweethearts who have been apart for 60 years. Re-united via a social networking site, they meet, fall in love and plan to marry. Reid and Jacobi enjoyed having the chance to play out a love story between older people that was not ageist or stereotyped

Season Two … in the wings: Season 2
… the six-part series returns as Alan and Celia continue to negotiate family baggage to plan a life together.
