Sometimes I feel like dating is simply a process of becoming a master of social entropy..
Characters are those people who stayed around long enough to make a significant impact on my emotional landscape…
For better or for worse…

The Greenwich Punk (is off the record!!)
I was impressed by a 33 year old master of reinvention.
I thought that we were the same kind of people: clawing our way through multiple power structures, fighting for the the right to live unconventionally.
I took a leap of faith when I revealed the blog to him. I was hoping that if I allowed myself to be open and vulnerable he might help me survive the UK and invest in a future with me.
He told me he doesn’t do anybody any favours.
He went off the record after our second date, but I mention him in Dates #25,26,27,28, and 32

The Young Irish Architect
I finally met someone sincere, intelligent, charming, and kind.
But do I like him?
The Media Man
Is my first Berlin date trying to take me on a slow train to nowhere with great dining cars? Or perhaps he’s picked up on hints about my project with Loveflutter during our discussions of media theory, and he’s secretly waiting until the fun is all over….
The Transatlantic Italian
I chose him having learned that an open style of engagement, a generous heart, and a familiarity with trying to live in alien environments was more important to me than any physical or intellectual achievement. At least I thought I saw the signs of those things. Yet after the key third date he showered me with cowardly excuses. Still, I don’t know where this is going after he comes back from Prague next week. We’re keeping in touch on Whatsapp…
