…and no, that is not the start of a limerick.
I’m a big fan of those fun dating applications on Facebook. Flirtable. Speed Date. Are You Interested? It’s not that I’m looking for a soulmate through these clicks…they’re just, well, fun. Usually I’m the one doing the winking, poking or some other form of subtle flirting through each of these applications.
Until a few days ago. I logged on to Facebook one morning and found someone had clicked “YES” on me. Yes, as in “YES, I am interested in you….” Woo hoo, for once, I wasn’t the one doing the hopeless chasing. Could it be that someone was actually chasing me this time? I clicked on his profile and fell in love. Okay, not with him exactly, but with his name.
Duncan. Damn thst’s a hot name, I thought.
It reminded me of some romantic Renaissance figure from the days of Romeo & Juliet, days when men were actually true knights in shining armor and they’d die for the woman they loved. When their honor depended on the love of a certain king’s daughter.
Then again, I’ve always been sort of a name-a-holic. Men’s names especially tickled my fancy for as long as I could remember. I used to spend hours thinking of the hottest guy names. A weird hobby? Maybe, but here’s what I’ve come up with over the years…
–Dawson – I have to pay honor to one of my first loves, Dawson Leery
–Jake – because Jake Gyllenhaal is my ULTIMATE!!
–Daniel, though Danny is cute too.
So what are your picks? Share, share, share!!
