The thing about holidays falling in the middle of the week is that it totally confuses the rest of the week for me. On Wednesday, I went all day thinking it was Friday. And yesterday I woke up thinking it was Sunday. So naturally, today I thought it was Monday. Were it not for me wearing jeans to work, I would have worked like it was Monday instead of Friday. Does anyone else do that? Work harder on Monday because it's the beginning of the week and come Friday, I'm piddling around like I have nothing to do. Yeah, I do that all the time. Pay me no mind, I'm just babbling.
For my American friends, how was your holiday? Whatever you did, hope it was amazing and restful and fun. Mine was. :) Except the restful part. heh.
So tonight I wanted to talk about dating. Or lack thereof. I need ideas that are fresh and not cliche for dating again. I think I'm ready to go out into the shark infested waters and try to catch a fish. The thing is I loathe dating. I do. I wish we could just skip all that awkwardness and fast forward to being in a meaningful relationship. But alas, you and I know that we can't do one without the other. I guess I'm a just a little jaded. The whole dating scene. Guys lie, want to play games, have ridiculous expectations, etc., etc., etc.
It becomes cumbersome. But I know that I'm not getting any younger (hush yo mouths!) and I want to get dressed up, feel excited about possibilities, crushing on someone or having them crush on you... Who knows, maybe I'll catch a keeper this time around...
So back to my dilemma. What are different ways to go out and meet men nowadays? I have no problem striking up conversations with total strangers. I do it all the time. But it's different if I'm even remotely interested in you. If that's the case, I get tongue tied and my inner dork comes out. And please don't say online dating. I've had my fair share of that nonsense and am permanently scarred from that experience. So, no thank you very much. Seriously, I need your help. I'm considering the nunnery for crying out loud!
It's the weekend kids (at least I think it is), go out and do something fun!
