If you read my blog on a regular basis, you know that I usually write about love, relationships, and the interaction between the sexes. My last couple of blogs has talked about what I'd like to find in a guy and chemistry. Nothing has changed there. I still want those things. However, I think I'm throwing in the towel for a bit.
You see, I've been putting my best dating foot forward for about 5 years now, and I'll be honest, I haven't had a lot of luck and I'm just a little burnt out. I'm to the point where, like I stated in my last blog, if you don't knock my socks off, I don't want to really put forth the effort.
I've even decided to take myself off every dating website that I've joined. And trust me...I have tried them all! I even joined J-Date.com and I'm not even Jewish! Although, I would convert to become a Jew! I'm not opposed to that. Shalom!
The dating websites proved to be good entertainment at times, but after awhile it was just fatiguing. I've been on match.com on and off for several years. I have not gone on a date from Match.com in about 6 months. I joined e-harmony about 5 months ago, and have yet to go on a date from that. I just don't find anyone that interesting and I really don't care at the moment.
As I've stated before, I haven't gone on a date that went past number 2 for some time now. And I'm not great at serial dating. There's really only so many times I feel like telling you how many brothers I have and where my family lives. After awhile I am OVER IT!
I will say that I have met some great friends from match.com. My best guy friend who lives in Chicago, I met off match. We went on several dates before I realized I wasn't quite ready to date after my last breakup. Love ya Lake Drive guy!
I don't want you to think I'm being negative about throwing up my white flag, because it's not to be negative. It’s just a matter of me realizing that I'm giving things a rest and going to focus on me for a while vs. focusing on me being with someone.
This will be difficult no doubt. I know I will be really lonely at times. I know that may mean that I'm not kissing anyone for a while. There will be no spooning, no evenings out for dinner and drinks. That also means that I'm not getting laid for about 6 months or longer. That kind of sucks!! BUT... whatever. Most of the time guys are pretty selfish anyway.
I guess we'll just wait and see what happens! Hopefully, I don't start growing cobwebs! Sheesh!
