One More Than One

Love comes in different shapes and sizes

The thing about computer dating is that you never quite know what you’re going to get. Or, more to the point, who. Having met online, two characters meet in person to discover that along with all the things they do have in common – there are a few things they don’t. He’s 6ft tall, she’s 3ft. He’s Asian, she’s Caucasian.

And so begins a trading of witty, yet incredibly insightful insults about their respective social stereotypes. He asks endless questions about her small stature, she wonders about his potentially small penis. Most striking of all is the tender yet sensuous duet they dance to replicate the sexual act. Followed by a more feisty dance equivalent of an argument, once their relationship has developed. A more thought-provoking and unique pas de deux you’ll be hard pressed to find.
