Chase (v): To follow rapidly in order to catch (this could pertain to my career), to go and follow in pursuit (I think I’ll assign this to love)

I wish I had a PhD in life, unfortunately I don’t. It’s a hard thing to do and being an independent woman in Boston doesn’t make it any easier; I’m a triple A, work till I drop, laugh a lot because I can, walk fast, talk fast kinda girl. I do it all and I do it in 5 inch heels.

You would think navigating a career and a new relationship while breaking the age barrier of 30 would be as easy as getting home in a timely manner during a sox-yankees series (this ladies and gents is sarcasm at its finest). However it is not and I am stumbling through this cray cray life one day at a time with a iPhone in one hand and a glass of wine in the other.

These are my daily musings; my everyday observations. I am here to rave, rant , tell my stories and perhaps laugh at those times when wine and over priced shoes, tears just aren’t enough.

So what happens after you caught Prince Charming? You could say I’m still Chasing Boston.

Episode 11: “The Chronicles of On-Line Dating”

On-line dating…where to begin?? Every day, there in my glitter covered inbox is a treat of an email just waiting for me to open it. What lies inside each one is a jewel of the inner workings of the male species, an insight of the male mind if you will. Below you will find the most random collection of emails I have received in my tenureship of the on-line dating revolution. These are actually emails, all spelling and grammatical errors have not been corrected….what fun would that have been?

Subject: hi
I like your pictures. You have amazing eyes. It seems we have similar interest. I’m a banker. I can assure you I’m know stiff. Maybe we can speak sometimes.

So…..what do you do for youre job? Also your eyes are HUGE!

Subject: SO HAWT
ur the type of hottie that would make me stop playin around and wife up. We should make out.

Subject: You don’t look like a mess
You look a lot less psycho than most people on here, wanna grab coffee?

I have sent you 3 emails, normally I don’t chase girls but you seemed normal, fun even but I guess I was wrong. I really hope this doesn’t have anything to do with my first email where I quoted the line from deliverance…..IT WAS A REFERENCE!! Apparently you can’t take a joke, which is fine if you are some stuck up Boston girl, who you said you weren’t, but I’m convinced that you are. You probably match your underwear (which is stuck up your ass) to your bra like the girls in that stupid girl movie.

I’ve moved on, in case you were wondering.

Subject: Charles River
I think I saw you running, well more like jogging the other day, not to be creepy or anything. A lot of girls have brown hair anyway it sort of looked like it could have been you. It was around 9am, was it you? I was the guy in the shorts and shirt running too.

Subject: I loved the Dress with the Flower
Email 1: really liked your profile! You seem funny and charming and witty. That’s not too common here in Boston. Tell me more about you
Reponse 1: Thanks!! Ask and I shall answer
Email 2: Have you ever been to prison? I sort of get that vibe from you.

Have you seen any good comedies this year?

Subject: Quick Email
I was in Washington, DC a few weekends ago; hanging out with Peace Corps friends I served with and haven't seen in a few years, attended the Stephen Colbert / Jon Stewart rallies, and running the 10km they had that Sunday before heading back to Boston.

Then I came back to Boston and went to a concert. Also I like your profile and would like to call you.

Thanks for listening.
