I have taken a positive step towards dating. I have dropped the dating site that I was on.
How many people have stopped and done the “Um, Mary?”
It is a nice site, not one of the major names, but good to get back out there on. The thing is it isn’t right for me. I am not your traditional woman. At least that is the feeling I get when talking to others. Plus there is a history of my boyfriends telling me I am like no one else they have ever dated. This was often said with bewilderment. I never actually believed it until recent years. The site has solidified it for me.
In my profile I state that I don’t believe that there are perfect matches, that I am looking for friends and willing to see where it goes. I was really honest and still don’t understand the responses that I received. They were filled with statements of looking for a wife and mother for children. I am sure that they are responses that many women are dying for but not me. Not right out of the gate. Let’s face it these guys only have a profile to go by and to be talking up marriage is weird.
After a lot of thought while reading three messages from three different guys I realized that meeting people via a website isn’t what I want. I don’t want to go to out with guys who after reading a very honest profile don’t get me. I guess I want to do it my way. Make friends and go from there. Since I am joining different groups I actually have a chance to meet some men. That does make it easier after all.
