After the first date,
She asked if he knew of Gestalt.
He said he only knew tiny bits
But he felt his mind gave him
The whole picture.
He asked if she had read Hegel.
She insisted that she had not,
And they were both amazed
To have discovered such

Tinder: cure for monandry
A swiping economy
for serial dating sprees.
Love product placement
The dodoitsu is a Japanese form, 7-7-7-5-5 syllables and no rhyme scheme (but I added one for my own nefarious purposes) . They are usually wryly comical and connected with love or work. This is my first attempt at one.

He loves me?
He loves me not?
Questions I have
asked myself a lot
since the day
I said I do.
Yes, he has a

Our love is

It’s been three days since we’ve met and talked again, four years since I grew fonder of you, five years since we first met.
For six hours that night, we both poured our hearts out because we owed each other time that we never had.
Two hours before, you could hardly imagine how many times I tried on different clothes because I badly wanted to look good for you but not wanting to look despe...

I'm going to give this context by starting off reading my old match and pof profile. This is genuinely real.

It's that time again and a new Poem is upon us, gone for something very different this time which I'm really happy with. Not usually one for writing Fantasy Romance but this just came to me. Hope you enjoy it.

By my own admission I'm far from perfect
but I won't even try to be, just to please you.
