A lesson I am learning later in life…. Sometimes, things happen… And we feel rejected. Those times are not always what we think.
#1) I had a new guy message me on the dating site… We started to talk there and moved to text. He asked me out. I agreed… The day of the date came, and I never heard from him.
I did not know why. I also did not text him. I could have. I chose not to. I wondered why he had decided to blow me off, and a couple days later I did text him and ask him in what I thought was a pretty nice tone.
I figure if you are making mistakes and you don’t ask… You’re never going to learn. I was curious to see the answer I would get.
I did not get an answer for several days… And then I got this:
The other one, is the date #7…. I think he may be too quiet and reserved for me… Because I usually rely on someone else to get me out of my shell.
I also am concerned that he works too much, and won’t have time for me. Yes it’s early in the relationship… But I don’t want to be begging for time and attention…
I had texted him and felt like I got very little back… So I stopped. My days of chasing somebody who isn’t chasing me are gone.
At least when I am cognizant of it.
This morning I got this:
I don’t know if either of these two are a love connection for me… But what I do know is that they have both taught me a valuable lesson.
I can’t really say that I enjoy dating. I don’t. For the most part, it actually feels like work… And personal growth.
Counting this as growing pains… Still further steppingstones doors the life of my dreams.
I’m getting there. One day at a time
