Building a Capsule Wardrobe by Starting with Art: Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1 by Georgia O'Keeffe Part 3

Remember our friend in the cabin? She's made a bold decision...




WWSM


(Widowed Woman Seeking Man) for sporting events, opera, symphony, dining, and whatever else we want to do... (she thought about specifying an age range for respondents, but she really doesn't care if her new friend is just out of college...)


Lace cardigan – PF Paola Frani; sandals – Badgley Mischka
 dress – Theory; earrings – Kate Spade
blue cardigan – L.L.Bean; nail polish – Formula X Dollface

Must be a man who appreciates simple pleasures, and is unimpressed by logos, bling, and obvious displays of wealth or debt. (if they're hanging around with her thinking that they'll get written into her will, they've got another thing coming!)


I will buy tickets if you do the driving! (maybe this will give them a hint that she remembers when Nixon resigned...)

Eyelet top – IDLF Uniqlo; sandals – Vionic
pendant – Kendra Scott; denim skirt – Boden
earrings – Nadri; striped top - Boden

If you want a new friend with a wide range of interests, get in touch! (maybe emphasizing the "friend" aspect is a good idea?)



Denim jacket – Ganni; leaf earrings – Mistraya
dress – Diane von Furstenberg; leaf pendant – Tiffany & Co.
cardigan – Twin-Set; sandals – Nina



She can't wait to see who responds!



Has anyone ever dated someone they met online? And are willing to tell us how it was?

love,
Janice

  1. Not only dated, I married a man I met online (back in 2000 when online dating was still uncommon and viewed a bit suspiciously). Still going strong after 15 years! I would not have noticed the guy otherwise as he is a tad shorter than I am and such things mattered to me back then. But this way, he first had the chance to charm me with his writing, and charm he did! So it's was a double win: I learned a valuable lesson about dangers of excessive shallowness and value of open-mindedness and gained the best husband one could have ever hoped for.

  2. I did a lot of Internet dating after I got divorced 11 years ago. Some dates were more successful than others!! Seven years ago I met the loveliest guy I could have wished for and we've been married for 3 years now. Very very happy.

  3. After being widowed in 2009, I started online dating in 2011 and met a wonderful (younger!) man. Today marks the 5th anniversary of actually meeting him in person. Our 3rd wedding anniversary is next month.

  5. I was one of the first computer daters! Notice I don't say "online". In 1976, working in London at my first job after college, I signed up for a computer matched dating service. What I received was a sheaf of computer tractor paper, tear-off holes down each side, and somewhere in there six names and phone numbers. The phone started ringing that day with young men who had my number, so I never needed to call anyone. I averaged a new date per week, some fun, some ok, one or two scary. It got me through my first year in a strange city. After a couple of near misses with the accompanying heartache, I found the one. It's our 39th wedding anniversary today!

  8. Lots and lots of online dating. Some hilarious, some boring, some obviously NOT a match. Met my hubby in 2007 online and married in 2009. My first marriage at 43.

  14. My oldest daughter met her husband online. They have been married fourteen years. When they first met, they discovered they lived in adjoining apartment complexes. I met my husband through a Christian dating service (long before online sites). We have been married twenty-five years. Who knew the lowly jimson weed could be the inspiration for a wardrobe!

  15. My husband and I met online (I was looking for a tour guide when I moved to a new state for grad school) We've been married 15 years, together 18. My mom met her current husband online - they've been married 14 years. And one of my brothers met his wife online - 13 yrs & 2 kids. Seems to work in my family :-)

  16. I also married the man I met online. Together for 13 years, married for 9. Back then, my life goals were to get married & have kids...unfortunately the kid thing didn't happen for us. If I had known back then that we would be infertile, I probably wouldn't have married him...and that would've been the biggest mistake of my life!

  17. I love your stories, Janice.
    I too can join this gang! I met hubby online. We met in person within a couple of weeks. He brought his slippers with him as he'd noticed cream carpet on my photos - he was a keeper, instantly! The English Channel separated us but we quickly sorted that out, taking turns to visit the other for long weekends. After 6 months he brought over his car, cat and book collection, so I knew he was serious! We've been together 10 years and celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary next year. He was definitely worth the commute. And it meant I had my in-house photographer when I started my blog so win win!
