At the end of the pier a magnificent craft was was moored. The sleek lines of this custom yacht oozed celebrity, fame and fortune. Greeted by a uniformed captain we entered a new stage of the life of this performer.
“Annie welcome to my home away from home. Please let’s get you out of those wet clothes. My staff will provide you with something warm.”
“Lovely! This is spectacular, Mr. Ballet. I am speechless.”
As I was escorted to the sleeping quarters for a change of clothes, I wondered what he had in mind? Was I just another understudy ballerina to practice his pirouettes, double, and triples? I didn’t think that was his intent, but I was pretty much captive, I didn’t want to leave this fanciful world.
Presented with a beautiful, soft velour white robe, I was reminded of the black fluffy robe that I wore with Mr. Waltz, a previous dancer. I thought it was mine alone back then but soon found out that that wasn’t the case: it had been worn by many others.
Mr. Ballet appeared wearing his own white robe For three hours we chatted about the days events while sipping flutes of sparkling champagne. He was in a league of his own-professional league, and I was the rookie for the night.

I prepared to leave this memorable city. I felt sad knowing that the likelihood of reconnecting with Mr. Ballet held only a glimmer of hope. How did he feel? Maybe I was just another swan along with Mr. Ballet’s migration though his flights of fancy. I had to assume that and regard this connection as a positive memory. no regrets.
I boarded the plane thinking that we’d somehow see one another again. He did call to wish me adieu but never proclaimed his affection for me. I understood. What would become of Mr. Ballet?
I could never get used to a life filled with detached rendezvous, exciting at the outset but meaningless in the end. Gladly I returned to my own routine.

My thoughts of NOT returning to my dating site would only limit the possibilities of really finding that one person that would be my life long partner. Back to “the profiles.”
