First date jitters?

I took the leap!

I went on a first date with a fella I met on the dating website and to my surprise he was…NORMAL. And quite a gentleman as well.

Tonight is date #2. Typical movie theater date. And guess what? I’m totally alright with it.

I think I’m definitely interested in him, what’s not to like? He’s an attractive, successful, 24-year-old engineer with his own place and a strong head on his shoulders (or at least it seems so far!)

And not once did he try to bring up anything sexual or touch me in any way that suggested something otherwise. At the end of date #1 we hugged.

I will admit…I’m not putting all my eggs in 1 basket just in case though. Yet, anyways…

So there ya have it! I’ll keep you posted.

Online Dating- foe or friend?

20140128-182226.jpg

Online dating has become more than just a myth. It has become a reality.

I’ve tried it a couple times just for the hell of it. Every time I get on there I have these things happen:

A) weird, creepy, unattractive guys always find me.

B) when I do go out on a limb and message a guy first, I get either no reply- even though their profile lists how they are so nice and love conversation OR “no thanks”. As if my attempt to just talk to them was too much.

C) when I meet guys in person, I see the reason they are on there. Not because they are unattractive, but because they are either awkward or only want sex. Lots of sex.

So basically dating websites are where cowardly, “shy” fellas can attempt to get laid as they call it without the face to face interaction and possible rejection.

I’ve been approached with messages from guys (who don’t exactly look like Josh Brolin) saying unoriginal and grotesque things like “Would you like to go on a date with me? I’ll give you the D later.” Really? How could I possibly turn down that offer?

So I’ve made my conclusion about online dating websites- don’t do it unless you’re ready to: get approached inappropriately, only want unsatisfying sexual encounters from guys who only brag about their “attributes” ONLINE, or really don’t give a shit what people think about you. If you’re semi sensitive like me, it’ll just hurt your feelings when messages and such from handsome men don’t flood your inbox.

There ya have it.

And if you do happen to meet anyone at all online- I don’t care if they say they’re a virgin preacher who lives with his parents- take someone with you and go somewhere incredibly PUBLIC. That’s all I ask. There’s been recent cases where rapists have made appearances on these websites.
