At The Core
“The devil is in the details.”
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 skeptics 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. Regular readers know that I am single and do have profiles on a couple dating sites. Okay, fine, a few! My profile is not a very popular one. Yes, my pictures attract some attention, especially as many do not believe my age.
Check The Details
However, my “About Me” sections on just about any online dating site is full of details. While I am browsing, if the profiles that attracted my attention, yes because of the pictures – I like a certain look – is short of details, I usually keep it moving.
“The truth of the story lies in the details.” Paul Auster
Skeptic or optimist, the point is going beyond an 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 LadyZeal 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.”
