"Our first date was scheduled for a Thursday evening. The weekend prior was the Mermaid Parade in Coney Island. I signed up to attend with a girlfriend as 'press photographer.' On a whim, I bought a turquoise blue wig. As I got ready for the day, I took a selfie of me in the wig and sent it to him.
The day before our date he sent me a question, 'Will you be blonde or blue?' Knowing he'd like me either way meant to me, he was a keeper."
