On my friend's and mine dating experiences. After my experiences this past week with two total arrogant jackasses, (one I did not got out with, one I did) I decided these stories are too good to pass up on. I've already thought of the title. . . .
My experiences over the last few months should make for an interesting read.
One question though, am I ever going to meet someone who is worthy of a second or third date again? I know they say you have to kiss a lot of frogs, but this is getting rediculous.
Until you meet me, I would have to say there will be lots of frogs. Sorry to have to break it to you.
That's what they all say. . . .
Cold-blooded amphibians on one hand, dwarf Yeti on the other. No much selection there.
Maybe you should start dating outside your "type".
Brick walls are there for a reason. They are not there to keep us out. The brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop people who don't want it badly enough.
See, I don't really know what my type is. I got married at 19, separated from him at 29, and spent the next three years with him stalking me.
This is really the first time in my life that I have actually dated. I'm not having any luck at it though.
Um, yeah. Think there might be a little bit of an adjustment period involved?
As cdngurl says, it's all about low expectations. Sometimes people expect to meet their soul mate in the first 2 or 3 dates. That would be lucky, indeed.
As time goes on, you'll start to appreciate the breadth of experience you're gaining by dating. As you say, you'll have some great stories to tell. And the eventual prince looks better when you have a large number of frogs (or yetis) to compare him to....

I am not sure if I will start with the man with the brain injury who contacted me on a online dating site - but hey he was honest at least - I know becuase he told the same 3 stories over and over and over .....lol
Or maybe it will be my apparent attractiveness specifically by the men who will "leave all their bad habits for the right woman"
