Well, my recent plans aren’t off to that great a start. Granted, it has only been a week, the long list of lovely ladies that I thought friends and family had in queue for me hasn’t seemed to materialize so far. With that said, I am leaving the option open. If anyone happens to find some eligible lady that might want to go on a date, feel free to let me know, but I have decided to seek other means of potentially finding dates.
But even as I consider this little plan of mine, I almost feel like I want to call it off anyway. I am so far removed from the dating game that I don’t even know if I would be able to. The thought of meeting a stranger for a date is very scary for me, and I have never truly “dated” in the traditional sense. All of my previous relationships just kind of happened, and they all existed because of relationships not developed over coffee, dinner, drinks, or other such things. I’m just worried that meeting people and having real conversations and whatnot will be a bit hard, especially since I hate small talk with a passion! Well, not really, but I’m worried that I’ll be really boring or the things that I have to talk about will only be interesting to me.
If anyone has any advice, feel free to share. I take a look at my small circle of friends and most of them are either married or in a relationship, long removed from dating. Alas, I will struggle through these challenges, and start running, since that is what all the ladies seem to like to do these days.
Until next time…
