So I don’t really talk about my relationship status on the blog. Mostly because my relationship status is currently (and has been for many, many years) S-I-N-G-L-E!
There are two reasons for this.
1. Working for Disney allows you to encounter two types of men. Either gay men or married men. Neither of which is appealing to me in the slightest. Then again the men that aren’t gay or married are, for lack of a better word, man whores. Which unfortunately is not what I’m looking for either. Especially since I’ve entered my mid-20s. I’m looking for something less……..temporary?
2. I’m picky. I fully admit that. I know what I want and if I don’t find it in a guy then I move on. I’m also comfortable being single. I would even go far as to say I’m good at it. Plus, I see this video and I just nod along with it because this is all shit that I say.
But now I’m 25. I’m officially half way to 50 and 5 years away from 30. I’m ready to find that special someone. (As cliche as that sounds). But seriously, I’m ready!So how does one who is surrounded by married and gay men start dating. You try online dating.Dun Dun Dun.Yes, I have created a profile with an online dating website (its free one) and have started talking to men between the ages 25-30. So far I’ve gotten lots of responses. But have replied to only a handful (remember, Miss Picky over here). There are the pictures I have posted on the site:
And I’ve actually already been on my first date! Which is a huge deal for me y’all. I was very safe about the whole thing. We went to a public place, a sushi restaurant that I chose and I let all my close friends know when I left and when it was over. We had talked for about 3 weeks or so before I actually agreed to meet in person. So first off, he was shorter then me by about a head. Which I’m just not that comfortable with. I just prefer taller guys. It was never awkward per say, we had a pretty steady flow of conversation but it wasn’t anything super exciting either. And I’m using the word date, but I paid for myself so it wasn’t really a date. It also last exactly one hour. We met there at 6:30 and by 7:30 I was in my car on my way home. Overall, it went ok. But I didn’t leave with butterflies in my stomach nor did I leave looking forward to the next time we would meet. But I did leave feeling very proud of myself for stepping out of my comfort zone and actually going on the date. I called Suzanne afterward and she said the same thing. So, I’m going to keep going with the online dating thing. See how it plays out! Who knows, I may be super successful or I may fall flat on my face. It’ll be fun either way and y’all will definitely get all the details! 🙂
