How much do I love this idea? A whole lot!
What Do You Know About Romeo is a very cute website where you can check on a man by entering his user name and the web site he’s on for online dating. Yes, it probably skews a bit younger but it’s a fun site and the idea is most certainly novel. There are some male experts to ask questions of and a blog of course.
I must admit, the man I dated just before I met my husband had that very nick name. No he didn’t call himself Romeo, I did. And I didn’t say it to his face. But, that’s how I referred to him to all my girlfriends who were privy to my dating dilemmas. He had a very thick Italian accent and when I first met him at a singles dance, I only understood about 60% of what he said to me. Believe that was enough.
He knew the language of romance very well. It’s a universal language and it was too much fun. I just wanted one fling to do the wrong thing. Until that point, I was always sensible and did the right thing. But with Romeo, I jumped off the cliff. It was worth it.
After about 8 weeks, when he started acting like a total jerk, I kicked him to the curb. Yeah, I cried for a few days, but I’m still glad I did it. Plus, the most important byproduct for me, was a new willingness to open my heart, take a risk on love and say "what the heck!" Once I got there emotionally, then I was ready to connect with a good man – like my husband.
So, thank you Romeo for the memories and for helping me see that I could take a chance, get disappointed, survive and move on to find the right man for me.
