Well this is one thing I said I would never do…get on a singles site. Needless to say, I did a few months ago and to my excitement my prospect pool multiplied. Great!!! right…well what I have found is the same need to sift through all the “No’s” and waiting patiently for the “YES”. I have met great people on the site and chatted with a few only to see things fizzle …apparently for some age really does not matter. I however have an age preference and will not budge. All the same I finally met a really cool guy and well the time investment begins even though we have not known each other long enough to say we are a “Couple” we are most def on a high caliber conversation level which is so refreshing to actually meet someone talking about something. We have not met ( we live in different states) at this point we have all green lights. Anything can happen at the “Friendship” stage. Since we have been talking, I took myself off the dating site for awhile but realized that it was wise not to alienate myself from other options. After my divorce, I have a weakness of insecurity and that is a problem that I am facing and will overcome, but has been the first red flag to my newest friendship. In conclusion, it is a great risk to put oneself out there weaknesses and strengths. Even though it would seem better to hide ones weaknesses until you are in a relationship and then let your true color show: I disagree. Although difficult, I believe it is best to be your true-self period and if the relationship is meant to be it will be.
