Things are not going awesome in the world of online dating, at least for me.
I've had a few go nowhere texters.
I did meet one guy the other night.
I was sure that I would be the one to politely decline a second date, as in my opinion I was 100% dating down, but he gave me the heave ho via email the next day.
Sure, it was two hours and $4.75 of my time, but it's shaken my ability to read people.
It has also called in to question my high opinion of myself. Perhaps I am not as awesome as I think I am. Or, even worse, perhaps my personality does NOT outweigh other less stellar attributes.
Tonight, I'm supposed to be meeting Junior. I call him Junior because he is 5 years young and 3 inches shorter than what I consider my minimums. But, he's persistent, and we've had some fun via email. A little concerned we are meeting without having even exchanged phone numbers yet. Stranger still that the meeting is likely to occur at either my house or his. This is only because our first meeting plan is to have an incredibly competitive game of Scrabble. Sure, I could get murdered, or disappear, BUT if I do go to his place, it will be proof to me that he is not married.
I may be way too naive for this whole Internet dating thing. My biggest concern is this:
My friends are so fantastic, and do not lie to me. I do not lie, in fact, one of my faults is being way too honest way too much of the time. I'm finding out through this Internet trial by fire that I assume everyone is as honest as my friends and I are, all of the time. I need to stop doing that. It's not doing me any good, not in this area, at least.
So, this is more of a rant than a post. But it's all that's in my head right now.
