Excerpt Blind Dating by Kerry Taylor

Published March 31st, 2013


When mid-forties, divorced, single-mother-of-three, Kimberly, realizes her own mother has more of a life than she does, she decides to do something about it. Encouraged by success stories from people at work, she joins a dating chat room, ICQ, and gets a lot more than she ever bargained for.

All of a sudden she’s a swinging single, online and in the real world, with extreme dates, a little dirty talk, and a sense of her new, sexy self— until that fateful moment when her long-time chat-room buddy, LonelySingle, wants to meet.

What if he doesn’t like her?

What if she doesn’t like him?

These are the thoughts, inside her head. Until they meet and realise, that they have been friends offline aswell as online!

What happens next?

A light-hearted, romantic comedy about a single mom finding true love, which was right before her eyes.


He asked the same question: “Where were we?”
Great, he has finished off the phone and I am still sitting here. I am not sure why I am sitting here. I could have got up and ignored his question. Why am I still sitting here! I scream inside myself.
“Oh,” he recalls.
Damn, I wish he would not ………………I say in my head.
“Do you feel uncomfortable?” he questions, seeing the frown in my face.
“Course, I do,” I reply.
“Wow, that must be the first and only time that you have ever shut me down,” he says in a state of shock.
“Yes, but I do not want to discuss it, please consult with your friends,” I reply rushing out of the office.
What was he going to do next, pull down his pants and ask me if his bulls are small?
I just do not want us to have that type of relationship. After all these years, we have not, and I do not intend to things being different now.
I delegate my entire work load to Kyle, and then I leave the office. Think for once I will go to watch Eric play in his league game. He asks all the time and I can never make it. For once, Mom will make it.
