Chronicles of Dating: Let's Do This! (Again)

19 December, 2015

I guess you could say I am a glutton for punishment. It’s the only reasonable explanation for why I’ve decided to sign myself up again for online dating.

Let’s be honest. The whole sales pitch to dating in general is to find someone to eventually spend your life with. It’s an expectation placed on most of us from the time we are kids. You grow up, you get married, you have kids and live happily ever after.

So. Much. Pressure.

What about meeting new people, sharing experiences and just having fun?

Why can’t that be the goal?

Earlier this year when I decided to give this whole thing a try, I really did want to find someone “to spend my life with”. Being single can be a lonely existence no matter how awesome your friends are. It can be tough being the one without a plus one at weddings, dinner parties, etc.  And no matter how many times you tell your friends and/or yourself that you’re “totally o.k. with it”, sometimes that’s just a plain ‘ole lie.

This time around…..I’m taking a different approach.

This time around, I really am shifting my focus. Yes, I would love to meet a dude to spend my life with. I would be once again lying if I said that wasn’t the case. But that’s on the back burner for right now.  Instead, I’m looking forward to just meeting new people and expanding my circle of friends. And if it leads to something more, super awesome. If however, it leads to just having a new friend to hang out with, I’m totally o.k. with that too.

I'll keep you all posted on how it goes.
