Have you? Checked the details?
The devil is in the details.”
Check The Core
Have you ever heard that saying? When I first did, the meaning was somewhat lost on me but not anymore. Actually, not for a long time now. That is possibly the sceptics’ way of saying what the optimist would, which is “God is in the details.”
There are people who do not like getting into the details. This is true especially of many who are on dating sites. Their profiles are huge on fluff but short on details. My friends and even readers of my previous blogs know that years ago when I was single, dating sites were an option for me. I had profiles on a couple dating sites. Okay, fine, a few! My profile was not a very popular one. Yes, my pictures attract some attention, especially as many did not believe my age – at the time.
Have You Checked The Details?
However, my “About Me” sections on just about any online dating site were full of details. While I browsed on these sites, if a profile attracted my attention, yes because of the pictures – I like a certain look – but if short on details, I usually keep it moving.
“The truth of the story lies in the details.” Paul Auster
Sceptic or optimist, the point is going beyond a hello, knowing or asking more than what is presented in a profile is critical. Speed-dating is not something that would be high on my list. They would probably boot me out for sitting too long or hanging onto the interesting looking ones to find out more.
Questions I love to both ask and answer. It is the only way that I know to get the information you need to make an intelligent decision. Yes, of course, the heart will guide you but often it is your heart that is prompting you to find out more. Do you listen? Share with us in the comments below.
Really love how Asuni Zeal states it,
“When Life teaches you a lesson, write it down and use it ASAP. Many destinies have failed because of lack of attention to important details.”
