Hello world is right!
My name is Natalie and this blog is a sprinkling of my dating trials and tribulations in the big old city of Ottawa. Being single in your thirties is no easy feat. I’ve been dating for what seems like ages and have some pretty great stories. My friends have encouraged me to write about them so here goes.
Most of the guys I meet are through an internet dating website called lavalife. It’s been my playground for about 5 years now. Ah the stories I could tell. I want to reassure my dates their identities will be protected.
I want to start off by a little something that happened on a date I had Friday. My date and I met at The Works in Orleans. The date went well; we had good conversation, great food and decided to continue our evening elsewhere. Not being from the sprawling suburb that is Orleans, I had to follow my date to our next destination. Inadvertently, I cut someone off in the parking lot. My first horrifying exposure to road rage began.
I need to assume a man was driving because no woman could possibly have done this. Or am I wrong? The guy proceeded to tailgate me, at which time I slammed on the brakes and flipped him the bird. Then the fun truly began. This maniac proceeded to continue tailgating me for blocks while flashing his lights at me the whole time like some looped crazy before turning off onto his street.
Needless to say the whole affair left me at a loss. At one point I brought the car to a stop thinking of getting out but I figured matters would only escalate. The incident brought my date to a screaming halt, I just couldn’t enjoy myself any more. I kept running scenarios through my mind of what I would have said and done had I stopped. The whole thing left me with a feeling of unease.
How about you? Have you ever been the victim or witness to road rage?
I want this blog to be interactive, so write!
