Solution: I am going to have to be that into me.
Bitch mode is almost over. Another day. I can handle it. Not sure anyone who knows me can!
I am turning a new leaf regarding the online dating. I'm not going to actively search anymore! Let the mountain come to me! Let him find me. I will "bring" him to me with positive vibes as I stop stressing over it and refocus on myself and my weight loss. Yes. This is the true path for me. He will come into my life when it is meant to be. So I'll just take that $160 chemistry membership and consider it an investment in "bringing the right man to me" rather than searching for him. Ta-da!
How did I reach this conclusion? Well, I've dismissed over 250 profiles as "physical distance too far" in an attempt to get the bloody system to "learn" and adapt my preferences as it says it does. I've also currently got 38 "I'm interested" matches to guys, some as long ago as 3 weeks. One guy got to the point of emailing and exchanging phone numbers and never called. WTF. And one guy (a Red Sox fan even) has expressed interest back, but has yet to go through the site's proper steps to proceed. Hello?
My dear friend, the princess of Sweden, says that in the summer guys probably aren't sitting around their computers and after all I want an active man anyway right? Ummmm. OK. Yes, in theory I agree. But....if one day they respond to the site's notice that they're interested then the next two days they don't follow up with the next step that the site prompts them to do, that just says to me "they're not really interested!" Of course, the princess has a skewed perspective, she's in an incredible relationship.
I need this movie to come out now! I need to laugh! When I read the book, I thought, "Holy shit, they're talking about ME!" I know, many women had that reaction. Hmmm.
So, baseball for the rest of the weekend, then BAM! Time to get back on track! Hope that you make the best of what you have going on too!
