And then it ensued: informal texting about random stuff in the day, and you found that, surprisingly, you were actually connecting with this person: laughing at her sense of humor, intrigued by her pretty face, interested in the things she had to say. And your heart began to hope that maybe this was someone who could actually be something, a diamond in the rough of online dating.
And here’s the thing: the hunt for love is as old as time, everyone searching for a connection with a sweetheart, someone they can rely on, share life’s road with, someone to love and hold. And especially before, people use dating apps to associate with others and meet up. But obviously this hasn’t been a fixture of our time alone. This letter from the Civil War would remind anyone these days’s online dating world if they’ve had any subjection to it.
Pardon the affectionate familiarity but you know its done in fun. Your wonderful little epistle has just reached me, and I do myself the honor to answer it instantly, thus adhering to your request to write soon.
Before moving on farther truth and candor compel me to accept that a little deception was used in the advertisement in the ‘Waverly.’ In shorts my true description differs materially from the one therein stated, and may not please you as well as the one “fancy painted,” but I thought it was all for fun, therefore funningly gave an imaginary description as well as cognomen. Be it known unto you then, this individual is twenty-nine years of age, five feet and eleven inches high, dark blue eyes, brown hair, and light (ruddy) complexion. There you have it. How do you like the description? Me thinks I hear you answer. I don’t like it so well as the promoted description.”
When you go over the exact physical description this soldier gives, one is emphasized of sorting fields on dating apps, being able to specify your preferences and what you want, down to physical traits you give preference to: height, physique, hair color, etc. And that’s just the beginning of it. Religious preference, occupation, education, hobbies, books you’ve loved, exercise habits, whether you drink or smoke, and whether you have or want kids are just some of the other obtainable sorting fields.
And the crazy thing is? People actually get together and take it all the way to the chapel and Pachelbel’s Canon and rose petals and all that jazz as a result of these apps. And now, you’re in the throes of wedding planning, attempting to get all your ducks in a row for the big day.
When it comes to wedding planning, there are so many things to think about. And, of course, how you plan to get the wedding party around from event to event in a smooth fashion (especially with lots of folks flying in from out of town who don’t know their way around!). Wedding transportation is one of the matters we excel at, whether you want one of our Rochester charter bus for the wedding party, a bachelorette party, or to transport guests via shuttle for the reception.
You came together– whether it was today’s equivalent of that Civil War letter, or by meeting someone in a more traditional, old-fashioned encounter, we’d love to be part of how you tie the knot. Being a part of your wedding day is not lost on us and we want our Rochester charter bus to show the importance of the occasion … for you and your guests!
