Dating, Kindness and Absolutely Nothing

Well I’m back and I have absolutely nothing to say, which means I’m going to ramble on and somehow lose track of time and I apologize in advance when you’ve been reading a post for five minutes and got ABSOLUTELY NOTHING out it! But hey, it beats scrolling through Facebook ūüėČ

I have been on a bit of a writing hiatus and the truth is I haven’t been in the mood to write. How can that even be possible???¬†Me not have anything to say? ¬†Well as I mentioned in my last post, things aren’t always the way they seem and I put on a happy face even when I’m not so happy! BUT I see a light at the end of the tunnel and each day is getting better and better! ¬†Plus, I’ve found a new show on Netflix that I am binging and to be honest, I would rather be watching it right now, but I have been MIA for far too long! The show is “The Sinner” and I just finished the 5th episode, there’s a total of 8, but it is soooo good. ¬†And that’s saying a lot from someone who doesn’t watch tv, let alone binge tv!!!

Just a follow-up on the whole dating thing, I faulted and got back on a dating app. ¬†I figured I’m new here and need to meet people regardless. ¬†The one I got on is new and I figured why not try it. So it makes it justifiable? ¬†Right? Well I will say, I like it better, there’s no swiping and more information prior to just “matching” with someone. You can see their education, where they’re from, if they have kids and whether they smoke/drink/do drugs.

Plus my dad said I needed to give people more of a shot and I shouldn’t deny someone for the unsolicited selfie that I mentioned before. ¬†Something tells me the reason he’s telling me that is because I get these text messages from him almost nightly – even before the mention of the unsolicited selfie. ¬†(and this is actually a good picture compared to the others!)

So – new dating app, led me to meet a new guy and I went out with him and he actually got a second date – WHHAAATTT? ¬†BUT….that’s as far as he made it, no sense in leading him on if I knew it wasn’t going to go any farther. Why you ask? ¬†He had a weird quirkiness about him (as my sister said, so does every man in our family – ahem, see above), he was a bit needy and made crude comments (which doesn’t typically bother me, but wait until you at least know me for more than two dates!!!)

I talked to other single friends and determined that I may start blogging about some of the horrible dating stories! Don’t get me wrong, dating can be fun – but it’s also EXHAUSTING!!! And in reality, it’s comical – comical how other people live their lives! ¬†My life is by no means perfect, but it’s funny how people can be so vastly different.

Episode 6 is calling my name, but I have to give a shout out to one of my best friends who did the nicest, most thoughtful thing for me. In my last post, I mentioned to do something nice to make someone’s day and THAT-EXACT-THING happened to me the last week. ¬†My friend Ashley is so incredibly thoughtful – she knew I was having a bad week, and somehow finagled a way to send me food!!! Figured out my address, found a restauran in town that delivers and she was definitely speaking my language by sending me steak frites! I was denying the calls/text messages from the VA area code – let’s face it, if I don’t know the number I am Googling it before answering it and nothing was coming up.¬† Ashley finally texted saying she was trying to have something delivered, so I quickly ran outside in a complete state of confusion and was so happy to see a meal waiting for me.¬† I devoured that food (and enjoyed it for lunch the next day!) Thanks again Ash!¬†IMG_0993
