Why Love is Blind…
You don’t need eyes to see your dreams come true.
Odie is an extraordinary Shih-Tzu who sees the world in his own unique way. His driving forces in life are made of dreams and passions. Let me tell you his story – a story about a passionate man with a dream.
He could sense them miles away. When asked about his biggest passion, he would always say:
What can you say? Who made ’em? God must have been a fluffin’ genius. The hair… They say the hair is everything, you know. Have you ever buried your nose in a mountain of curls… just wanted to go to sleep forever? Or lips… and when they touched, yours were like… that first swallow of wine… after you just crossed the desert. Boobs. Hoo-ah! Big ones, little ones, nipples staring right out at ya, like secret searchlights. Mmm. Legs. I don’t care if they’re Greek columns… or secondhand Steinways. What’s between ’em… passport to heaven. I need a drink.*
A woman is like a riddle. To solve that riddle you must understand her, know her, hear her every thought, see her every dream, and give her wings when she wants to fly. Sounds like a Bryan Adams’s song, right?
And that’s exactly what Odie did. In order to pursue his biggest passion, Odie simply employed all his side passions… and he had plenty of those.
The Side Passions
Odie’s passion for fairy tales landed him a date with Cinderella. Odie decided to have an early date for two major reasons. Firstly, we know what happens to Cinderella once the clock hits 12. Last and least, if you keep the shoe, you gotta marry her. Odie wasn’t ready for that type of commitment.
Odie’s passion for shenanigans resulted in a date with an Irish beauty from Dublin. After a few drinks at the local Irish bar, Odie was dreaming of a green Christmas in Dublin. Hence, Christmas was too far in the future and Odie didn’t like to plan so far ahead, the Irish beauty returned to Dublin solo.
Odie’s passion for yoga and healthy life style led him straight into the arms of a vegetarian yoga instructor. Every morning, he reluctantly joined her for a yoga routine in the park. Excluding the meat from his diet had disturbing effects on his psyche. He started seeing things that weren’t there… like other women. As a memory of the good yogin’ times, Odie kept a poster of yoga exercises for beginners.
Odie’s passion for Broadway musicals made him to fall for a Broadway dancer. They danced every time they met. Odie’s dancing skills improved so much that it made Dancing with the Stars contestants look like a bunch of little kids two stepping. They both tried out before a demanding director for a part in a new musical called A Chorus Line. Odie got the job, the dancer didn’t. End of that story.
Odie’s passion for pretty heart-shaped stones sparkled the interest of a famous geology professor Mrs. Flintstone. As you can imagine, her husband Mr. Flintstone was not very fond of the affair. And while the TV-show ‘How to Get Away with Murder’ was only two episodes deep, Odie decided to end the stone age affair before the end of the 3rd episode.
Odie’s passion for zuigerphobia ended in a short term relationship with a very cute neat freak. Cute but psycho cured his fear of vacuum cleaners in no time. However, as a side effect, Odie has developed a phobia for neat freaks.
This cutie had a passion for Odie. She would pop up out of nowhere with fresh baked cookies in her little basket. To shy to make a move, she would just stand there and stare, which made Odie very uncomfortable.
Odie’s passion for ordering stuff online almost got him in real trouble with a mail-order-bride he didn’t order… as he claims. One day, a package was delivered to Odie’s house. In the beautifully wrapped package he found a cute little thing called Odiena… and her off-spring Odie Junior. Child support was the first thing that crossed Odie’s mind. Luckily, Odiena was not Billie Jean and Odie Jr. was not his son. Odie and Odiena quickly discovered their mutual love for tacos, sombreros and Margaritas. Yet, Odiena didn’t share Odie’s love for senoritas. They decided that it would be best if they remained friends with occasional benefits.
His passion gave him the courage to take a shot at his dream. But passion alone is not enough to make your dreams come true. It requires hard work and dedication. Starting his own non-profit organization has always been Odie’s biggest dream. Inspired by his Momager’s passion to encourage and empower women to heal with their spirit and transform their lives, Odie saw an excellent opportunity. While innocently eavesdropping to womens’ conversations, Odie had realized that blindness of love was not just a figure of speech. According to his further research, love suppresses the activity of the brain areas that control critical thought.
That’s when it suddenly all made sense. If love is blind and so is Odie then… Odie is love!
The expression love is blind was first found in Chaucer’s Merchant’s Tale, circa 1405:
For loue is blynd alday and may nat see.
191 years later, Shakespeare reused the expression in his The Merchant Of Venice, 1596:
But love is blind and lovers cannot see
419 years later, the idea to start a non-profit consulting service for women called Love is Blind was born.
First thing first, Odie conducted an extensive SWOT analysis to better understand his own strengths and weaknesses.
Odie traveled to Cleveland, North Carolina, New Mexico just to meet with different women and to determine what women want. After countless dates, Odie came to the conclusion that women want love. Love, regardless of its size, shape, color, or any other infirmities. Intelligent, ambitious, sexy, smart, funny, stable, confident love. Everything he was. But… there is only one Odie.
Odie invited Flávio aka Don Juan de Flávio and Scruffy the diva impersonator to join his non-profit as silent partners. Both of them were the ultimate connoisseurs of women’s nature. While Flavio’s seduction skills and experience with women helped Odie recognize the red flags, Scruffy’s gender switching ability helped Odie discover his feminine side.
