Romance for Dummies

Romance for Dummies

”Nothing spoils a romance so much as a sense of humor in the woman.” ~ Oscar Wilde

Romance for Dummies

I met him at a party. He was seated alone in front of the fireplace. At first he seemed a little wooden, a bit stiff. He responded slowly—I guessed he had a lot of girls in his IMs. We chatted a while.  He had that suaveness, those cool, distant, unmoving eyes, suggestive of a strong man deep in thought. Turns out he was a model, which impressed me. He said he posed mostly for artists but I could see his hard abdomen and broad shoulders suited him for so much more.

As the evening wore on, we got closer and closer. “You know, Harper,” he said, putting his hand on mine, “I think we have a lot in common. I’m a model. You’re a model. I’m a poser. You’re a poser.” (I had to think about that for a moment but took it as a compliment.) “I would like to get to know you,” he smiled, or I think he did.

I wrapped my hands around his and we talked deeply for hours. “You know, Harper, I think you get me. You’re different from the other women. You don’t treat me like a dummy, to pose and change, and make me do what you want.” At this tender moment I had to click the last animation in the sofa….

And make him kiss me, a long deep soulful kiss, one that wore the varnish off each other and revealed our true grain.

This romance has been embellished with several lovely items, including the sexy dress Poulet Koenkamp is featuring at the Monochromatic Fair. I have worn it to several parties with this long necklace from Maxi Gossamer, feeling very chic. I ran out at the stroke of midnight last night to get Eku Zhong’s new shoes for the 21 Shoe event. It’s ridiculously only 24 hours, so get shopping TODAY.

I highly encourage you to find McChris Flanagan’s gacha at Erotigacha, where I got the set of lamps I show on the mantle. They are animated and so dang fun and cute. Some swing their legs, some open and close so the books fall or their lampshades bow down. I am absolutely fascinated with them. Kay Weston’s posing dummies can be found at yard sales near you or at her store. And the art dummy avatar from Sylvia Cuthbertsson Blunt wore for me in these photos  can be found on Marketplace. Finally, find this awesome kissing sofa from Warmanimations Lisa at Erotigacha.

“The decision to kiss for the first time is the most crucial in any love story. It changes the relationship of two people much more strongly than even the final surrender; because this kiss already has within it that surrender.” ~ Emil Ludwig
