I just don’t get dating today
In this last episode of this week’s series about dating, I have to say I just don’t get dating today.
Look in the old days, you like someone, they asked you out, you go out, they call you, they are polite, they are a gentlemen…you start dating.
Now a days…it’s all texting, never meeting, drive by coffee dates, never text or call you back even if you seem to click…it’s horrible to say the least.
Today in the dating world we have catfish, we have serial daters, you got men who go ghost on you, the we are only going to text but never meet you man and lots of I just want to hook up guys.
There are the guys that look nothing like their pictures, or their pictures are 30 years old or 30 pounds ago, guys that are freaks, guys that have an obsession of sending pics of their dicks and of course the trolls…. slim pickings for sure out there…
If you actually get to meet, you then find out that they are freaks, have commitment issues, have lots of baggage and or baby mama drama. Maybe they are narcissistic, controlling, jealous or passive-aggressive or have some other kinds of issues….it is definitely rough out here.
But what are you doing to do? Sit at home? Have a pity party?
Oh hell no, I will continue to go out there and date, I am determined to have the time of my life. Will I kiss more frogs? Oh absolutely…. probably plenty at this rate….but I refuse to say all men are dogs or I’ll never find the one.
Nothing in this life comes easy, you can’t lose weight over night, become successful overnight or achieve your dreams just like that ….so what makes us think we can find a mate just like that.
Is it frustrating? Oh hell ya! But so is dieting and exercising all week to step up on the scale and realize you lost nothing!
Eventually it will happen, there are some great men out there. How do I know? Because I have plenty of wonderful male friends in my life, my best friends are guys, I had 2 wonderful father’s and a man who was like a father to me and I was blessed with a wonderful father in law…I know good men and I know they are out there.
It’s just up to us to keep digging through the shit to find our diamond. It’s up to us to not settle because we are lonely or feel we need a man to complete us. It’s up to us to stand up and set boundaries, to realize our self worth and say no…not happening, keep it moving mister.
We need to know what we will put up with and what is a deal breaker. We need to own our past shit, deal with it and make ourselves whole before we go out there and mess someone else up.
But most of all we need to let go, have fun, enjoy and be in the moment even if the moment sucks right now.
This will be a time you look back on, a time you will laugh about, this is your learning time about yourself and about others and one day when your laying in the arms of your soul mate, with a love that fills you, that you couldn’t imagine, you will look back and think how did I ever survive that…and look how far I’ve come.
So today my friends, I know you are saying I just don’t get dating today but hold on because as I say all the time if you believe nothing is impossible.
