Internal dialogue of a distressed mind
Dating in Covid times…
Maybe I should just stay in
And remain single until the vaccinations begin.
But I’m lonely and want to cuddle.
But they are strangers not in my bubble...
How do I navigate a social distance date?
What should I wear?
Does my mask match my outfit?
Should I put a mask on, or will they care?
Oh shit, will they wear a mask?
If they don’t- is it rude of me to ask?
I wonder, where and when should we meet?
Outside is best - but then how can I drink?
Will they or won’t they stay 6 feet?
Or perhaps it doesn’t matter if they are double vaxed?
Oh my, maybe it’s time I got a wax…
More importantly - will their looks match their pics?
Will they be slick?
Will we click?
What if there is silence?
What if they only talk about science?
Will I be a bore?
How many times have they done this before?
How big is their bubble?
If we kiss, will I be in trouble?
Will they be the One?
Or just have fun and be done?
What if they are a jerk?
What if I’ve forgotten how to flirt?
How do I bail if it is a disaster?
Blame Covid, that worked with the last girl.
Will they be cheesy?
Will I be silly?
Will they be witty?
Oh my, will they kill me?
Are they a psychopath killer?
Am I stepping into my own thriller?
Shall I even bother?
Coffee seems safe.
Will they pay or go splits?
Should I offer to pay or just ditch?
Hmm...yes…What’s new on Netflix.
