I plopped on the couch in my friend’s Miracle Mile condo, thumbing through a stack of magazines for things to do in Chicago. As luck would have it, the July cover story of Chicago Magazine was the 2014 Most Eligible Singles list.

Naturally, I scoured the spread for any potentials that tickled my fancy.

One named Calid (I’m a sucker for names and this one I loved) caught my eye.

Chicago Magazine
2014 Chicago’s Most Eligible

A dark-skinned, digital strategist flaunting a fedora; this bachelor was looking for “an ambitious woman who is willing to laugh at his corny jokes.” Here’s his photo from the magazine.
With 24 hours and nothing to lose, I grabbed my laptop sensing an opportunity and emailed him…
Hi Krystal, Thanks for reaching out. (1)

Ladies and Gents, that’s what you call a love jump!

When an eligible bachelor is staring you in the face– or, er.. um his photo in a magazine is staring at you—you go for it. You reach out!

 

 

Well, Chicago’s most eligible bachelor didn’t want to meet this most eligible bachelorette so I decided to take myself on a date.

#lovelessonWhile on my romantic, summer afternoon bike ride through Chicago’s Grant Park I stumbled upon a sea of people struttin’ their stuff in the middle of the city. Turns out it was the Chicago Summer Dance Party, a free public dance party inspiring couples and strangers a like to shake their groove thang.

I wanted to jump in but for some reason I didn’t. Instead of capturing the moment, I caved.
I sat sulking, complaining to a girlfriend on the phone about what could be–me and the LOML (love of my life) dancing cheek to cheek in Chicago streets.

Instead, I should have been focusing on the love jump happening right in front of me! An opportunity to spin with a stranger who just might be the MOMD (man of my dreams).

A gorgeous, dark-as-night man rode by, stopped, introduced himself and asked if I danced.

And in an epic amateur move, I said no.

No. *slaps forehead*

No?

What do you mean no, Krystal? (talking to myself here)

I don’t know what I was thinking.

Actually, I do. I wasn’t!

When handsome, dark as night man asks you to dance, you don’t say no.

You foxtrot, you waltz, you spin, you twirl…you do the freakin’ butterfly if you have to.

You dance.
