Deidre's Secret

I have a secret. I've been keeping it from you for months, and I am bubbling over with it today and it must be told. I am sorry Not Daniel you have to find out this way, but I am in love...with my swing teacher.

It's the truth. Swing Teacher has stolen my heart with his silly quirky jokes and smooth lindy hop skills. I can't tell which is more swoon worthy: the lame jokes, the fact that he is suave on the dance floor, or maybe it is that he makes me laugh whilst spinning me; regardless, I am utterly wooed.

I tend to fall into these bouts of love every other day. Yesterday, it was this British guy I saw on the tram. So far it's my favorite kind of love, filled with hope and possibility; I swoon from afar and never have to have the awkwardness that comes with getting to know someone. Sometimes, the attraction is put to rest almost immediately - like if they take out a cigarette - our love is then gone and I have to mourn the lost relationship for 5 seconds.

And let me tell you, falling in love all the time is exhausting.


  1. Have you ever seen that Alanis Morrisette video where she sees a guy at a party and immediately imagines this full blown relationship with him?

  2. No! But it sounds outrageously accurate to real life ;)
