Sometimes there comes a moment when you surprise yourself… When you think of yourself as a kitten, but catch yourself acting like a lioness
My friends affectionately call me Glinda. This is why.
#1) cute Army guy I’ve been talking to
Judging by the silence, I’m going to say he has fallen out of love with me LOL
#2) local guy. Says he is in the Navy. I’m not exactly sure,
So… Obviously I decided to give online dating another chance. It will be two weeks tomorrow.
Man, is this so not fun…
I did accept one date request… for next Saturday. It came after two weeks of on/off texting.
I met him on Zoosk… Which I was not impressed with. I have actually already deleted that profile, and canceled the subscription.
Nice enough looking guy. But divorced twice, and lives in an apartment with his adult son.
I’m in an apartment. I am well aware my rent is more than a lot of people pay in mortgage… so it’s not necessarily a bad factor… I just want to make sure my next partner will be equal to, or better than me in terms of financial stability. Having my ex-husband suck me dry taught me some painful lessons that I am not willing to repeat.
We have talked on the phone once, and seemed to have some things in common… So I’m willing to meet him to explore further
So, I am feeling a little bit hopeful… But mostly wondering if I shouldn’t be more excited about someone I’m actually meeting.
Maybe the fact that I’m not, is wasting my time and his?
Or maybe it’s smarter…..waiting to reserve judgment after having more facts?
I’m not sure.
And writing these profiles? It’s awful.
Reading them… For the most part, also awful.
Who knew how bitter and jaded most people seem to be by this age? ( I’m 48 )
Who knew there were so many women just looking to get laid? OK… I kind of knew that one , but I did expect a search for love and relationship to be more a part of the package.
And, for someone like me who does believe they’re attractive… But also, highly aware of their imperfections… Well being on sites where people swipe right or left largely based on said looks… It’s tough on the old ego!
I even tried Tinder… and tinder fire, which tells you if people swipe right or left on your pictures… Helps you to pick better ones.
Well guess what? The two pictures of myself that I think are the most beautiful… they both got 100% swiped left.
So what to do with that feedback? Maybe I should post the no make up, semi unflattering pictures lol
Oh well… I’m not sure there was much point to this post…
I guess other than to say that at least I recognize bullshit when I see it… And I’m proud of myself for calling it
Even if that means no love for me.
