Interwebs, can I be honest with you for a minute? I just have to say it - I hate dating. I'm not good at it, I don't like it and I really don't want to do it. As much as people tell me it's what I have to do, it's fun, blah blah blah - I don't want to. Like a child, when someone tells me I HAVE to do something it makes me want to do it even less.
Call me old fashion but I believe it's still possible to meet someone going about the life you lead; It may mean exploring other activities, passions and places outside of your regular routine BUT it can happen. Guess that means we all need to venture out of our bubble and see what's out there?!
People tend to ask why I haven't met someone at the gym since it is where I spend a good portion of my time. Let me ask you - if you're working out, do you really want to be interrupted by someone asking you out in the middle of a set? The answer is NO! There is one older gentleman at the gym who finds it necessary to butt in the middle of a set to carry on a long winded, one sided conversation. To you Sir I say BUH BYE! If I'm feeling this way about someone approaching me at the gym.... why would a guy want a girl to do that to him?
Don't get me wrong - there's a gym crush here and there you get excited to see or maybe they even acknowledge your existence but that's as far as it goes. Friendly smiles, waves, nods and even a "looking good" compliment. Sometimes you get completely distracted by a tall drink of water you almost drop your weights - Yes, it really does happen to us too gents!
Anyways, I really was talking about something relevant here but I got to thinking about the tall drink of water... back to it... :)
After talking with a friend last week (at the gym, funny enough) we discussed how dating is a part time job. It takes time, effort and interest to invest in someone else - why can't it just be easy? Like meeting someone and having that instantaneous connection, no forced feelings; When you can curl up on the couch with them, fall asleep and just be.
It will happen, this girl has more faith in knowing he's out there than most single women but I don't want to swipe yes, match or check out the harmony.
Real life will do. xo
