So recently I decided that it might be OK for me to start dating again. I've gone a few dates. All of them have been fine...No horror stories thus far. Which is good right?
You've probably heard me talk on the air how I also decided to join MATCH.COM. While I'm still pretty new to the dating online thing, it's proved to be very interesting. I'm still so new to the area as well. One thing I've talked about in the past is when you're an adult how do you meet people to date...especially living in a new city? It's tough. And I thought to myself..."you may never find someone unless you step outside your comfort zone." So I have.
Have I found any love connections?? Too early to say. I'm still a newbie to this whole thing. I want to take things slow...one day at a time and one date a time!! I want to make sure I'm getting into a relationship because I want to be with this person not because I need a time filler. I don't want that. Everyone tells me "Erin...take your time...don't rush into anything!" I agree!! I totally agree.
I want to date and see what the world has to offer. Casually date. When I say casually date...that doesn't mean I want casual bowling!! If you know what I'm saying??? That's not for me.
My friend's hair stylist had a great saying...she said "If you're not ready to give up your every Friday and Saturday night to be and hang out with your guy...then you're not ready to date someone seriously." I thought that was an interesting perspective. Is that true??
And is it wrong to just date? My friend told me it's like trying on shoes. You're just trying to see which ones are a good fit!
So I head off in the dating world...any good words of wisdom? What should I prepare myself for? Keep in mind, I don't have a lot of dating experience...so A lot of this is new to me.
