Watch out world! Lock up your grandfathers and rich uncles because...
I have an online dating profile!
Oh my gosh- stop screaming and sit back down. You're just embarrassing yourself and everyone else.
The boys at work have been hounding me to sign up. You all know how I feel about it- but I bit the bullet and did it. I haven't really done much on it- mostly because it scares the hell out of me. I can't really talk to anyone yet because I haven't bitten the pay-for-it bullet. So A couple of times a day I get an email that they've found my perfect match, I do the heebie jeebie dance and delete the email. But it's progress, right? Sort of? A little? A smidge?
It's too much pressure! All the guy's profiles say that they're looking for marriage. I'm not. At least not yet. I'm looking for practice. I need practice before I can start thinking about that kind of stuff! I just don't know if I can do it! I had a mild panic attack when I hit Go- but it's there. Feel free to look me up and laugh to your heart's content. Just don't tell me you did it.
As I've been speaking of dating and all kinds of stuff with coworkers, I have been enlightened that I live life with "single eyes". Apparently I often say stuff like, "you haven't seen the movie yet?" or "why can't you just take a nap?" Huh... Weird. The things I totally take for granted are a such luxury when you have things like kids and a spouse. I'm so spoiled.
I can go to movies when I want. And dinner. And the theater. I have a pretty sweet deal here... maybe I should go delete that profile...
