Non-Wedded Bliss....

So....I don't typically write about dating....nor do I plan on making it a habit, but just need to vent about how tough it can be! It's such a complicated and complex process that I think only gets more difficult. I'm fairly particular when it comes to what I want AND don't want in a person, but there are really only a few things that I am strict about. I wouldn't say I am picky (some may disagree) but I just know what I'm looking for and there are certain things I won't compromise on. Not that I don't love what I've got going on in life and at times really value being single and the freedom that comes with that, but dating can be a daunting task!

Anyway, I went out with a guy last weekend that I had met through a month membership of one of the dating websites. I've done them before and had some rocky encounters but this guy seemed promising and it was actually a really good time! We even talked about how he had a crummy date the night before and how much fun he was having. And he said he would call. And he didn't. Not the end of the world. Obviously not the right guy for me if he's going to do that.....but SO FRUSTRATING! Why go through the antics of acting interested and saying you're going to do something if you're not going to? Life will go on and I'll meet my Mr. Right sometime, but I'm so sick of having to deal with all these frogs in the meantime!

Another example of poor behavior....a good friend of mine (who shall remain nameless) met a guy, went out for drinks with him, and he goes as far as setting a day and specifies a location where they should go to a movie the following week and leaves it as, "I'll call you." And.....he doesn't! And she doesn't hear from him again. WHAT THE TRUCK!?!

Now, I know that there could be other things going on with these guys or things that change in their life, but bottom line, "He's Just Not That Into You" and that stinks. I try to stay excited about meeting my prince, but geeze, life makes it tough! Any words of wisdom on where to meet the guys that are worthwhile?!

Shell, I feel for ya! You're determination and lovable personality will get you there soon! You will meet Mr. Right and know that all of these "experiences" helped get you to him. Love you!
