You know I am get a touch wary whenever Darrell goes quiet, especially when he is on the computer …. and yesterday was no exception ….
It seems that Darrell is looking to find “lurve” through the medium of on-line dating ……. I knew I was letting him watch too much unsupervised Millionaire Matchmaker!
He told me that he had decided right from the very start that he was going to be robustly honest in a Hello Magazine type way when writing his profile …
… so as not to mislead any young lady who liked the sound of him and thus might then wish to “message” him …
….. even if it was brutally warts and all …. if he has a verruca then he was going to declare it!
He asked me to check everything he had put down thoroughly before clicking the “next” button ….
…. I found his honesty very moving in parts and found myself stifling several manly sniffs.
Choosing his profile picture then took us quite a while as you can imagine with Darrell, as once again he wanted to be duly diligent as not to mislead.
…. If he was lucky enough to agree to meet a prospective young lady, how awful would it be if that said young lady in question walked right past him on their first date because his picture bore no resemblance to how he looked in the flesh!!!
However, the worrying part for me will be waiting for Darrell’s profile to be approved, especially after what happened when he and Nigel applied to be The Face of Kinder …. the hope in his heart at the moment could be shattered by another rejection …..
