What gave me the inspiration to write this fictitious exchange? My little sister admitted to the family that she had been fishing for a boyfriend on online. She proceded to say we should not judge her for using Plenty of Fish as a method. We had not said a word. She believes there is still a stigma, which there may be. Her own perception of shame led her to tell us that she believed our parents would not be around much longer, therefore she had to find someone quick to marry… Should there be a stigma?

The temperature change will definitely be an adjustment for you!! I am a northern Saskatchewan girl, so the move made no difference to me. All you southern Ontario folk are babies in the cold comparatively speaking.
Oh how I wish it were that easy to meet someone! The Laundromat even would be a more romantic place than an online site I think sometimes. Anything is nicer than an online profile. I suppose I am looking for someone to make this experience dreamy somehow?
I volunteer at the pet hospital here! I was planning on volunteer at the actual (human) hospital here, but I got offered this position from a friend, as she knew I enjoyed playing with the dogs. Especially the newborn puppies! I’m going to be assisting with a new program that the coordinator brought up to me as well!
What will you miss about southern Ontario most when you do move here? And don’t worry, if you’re lucky you’ll have a pretty girl to keep you warm in the cold winters up here…

Well I have experienced some cold conditions before, but I think the Sault St. Marie winter may put me to the test. It may just be my male ego, but I am determined to prove us Southern Ontario folk are made of tough stuff and can pass that test.
I suffer from the dilemma as you. I grew up with two sisters, which one would hope would have given me some great insight into the female mind. It didn’t. What it did give me is an unfortunate amount of knowledge about romantic comedies – all of which have some big meet cute. I think problem is we both are looking for some big Sleepless in Seattle scene.
There is a solution to our problems however! If you do meet someone on here that you want to meet and things go well, I suggest you just make up how you met. The catch is never to use the same story twice. I know it sounds ridiculous, but there is method to my madness. It becomes a fun game for two to play when you are out and you get to relive your first fictitious moments flirting over and over again. The best part? The truth of how you met online becomes a secret between the two of you. Not shameful, but special – dare I say romantic even?
That may only seem appealing to me because I read a lot of fiction. So a plan B. You pretend you are Meg Ryan and the very lucky guy is Tom Hanks. The movie you two are starring in however is not Sleepless in Seattle, but You’ve Got Mail.
Amazing that you volunteer, Kat. I’ll use the excuse I have not found something I am as passionate about enough to volunteer. It is really inspiring to hear though, especially with such excitement. I couldn’t be more impressed.
And to answer your question, I think I’ll miss my family, friends and even my annoying cat (despite him not being a dog). Do not get me wrong, I’m excited to meet new people, but I do also have a good group of people in my life already too. I’ll miss them. How about you? What did you miss about Manitoba?
I rambled a bit. I am hoping for a Meg Ryan by the fire to keep me warm though… ;)
