Dating in Socks and Crocs

I decide to take the plunge, internet dating is all the rage My loneliness grows, I decide it’s time I try to engage I join several dating sites, cynical of what I may find Hoping it’s someone sweet, who’s honest and kind I write my profile and describe myself as stylish and chic Smiling with a chuckle, right now I am not dressed for my pic I go to my closet; the fancy date dresses are way in the back I move all the comfy clothes as I take the sexy ones off the rack I narrow it down to two dresses, one glittery red and one slinky black I grab a pair of heels, spiked red leather and with sexy strappy backs My face is now make-up, red lipstick, blue liner and false fake lashes I set up my camera and tripod, hoping it takes my pic and flashes A week goes by and I have several hits and messages on my profile page I find one I like, he seems nice and honest, or it could all be staged We chat awhile and then he invites me to talk to him over zoom I agree to video chat in a few hours, as I stare at the dresses in my room I get all made up, wearing my red dress, spiked heels, flashy fake rocks As I try to walk, I take the heels off and put on my fuzzy socks and crocs We video chat, really hitting it off, until he asks to see my sexy shoes I panic, as drop my tablet, it crashes, lands at my feet, I am not amused I grab my tablet, my face is red with embarrassment, maybe he didn’t see? He laughs as he tells me, he now knows I am the one, it was meant to be He's holding up his foot, below his suit, he’s wearing shorts and fuzzy socks and says he loves that I can be glamorous while wearing socks and crocs

Read this is the new anthology! A great poem that speaks about how we dress ourselves up but it is in the mishaps, the flaws, the “real” us, that we find the bond. So fun! Congrats!

Lovely poem, Tania. Though I would be wary of internet dates.

Thank you Victor, the poem is fictional as I am happily married, internet dating is how people meet now a days though.

Light humour and enjoyable to read. Internet dating is a real challenge, especially to be frank and upfront.

If it took socks and crocs to awaken your sleepy muse, it was worth the wait for her to open her eyes and guide your hand to write such delightful humor, Tania.
