The other day I posed a question on my Facebook wall about online dating site.
If you're a long time reader of this blog then you know of the dating woes I've experienced at the hand of Match.com and eHarmony, as well as, meeting men the traditional way. What came of that question in the thread was an unraveling of Marissa. What was even more surprising (to me) was an outpouring of compassion, reassurance and thoughtfulness. What I learned is that I don't see in myself what other people see in me.
So, who out there has found a decent human being to date through an online dating service? My curiosity is for .. uh, research. Yeah, that's it.
That is my starting point. In spite of all the improvements that my body has under gone in the last few months, it isn't transforming my ability to love who I am. Allowing myself to be tethered to the past has been the proverbial anchor around my feet.
Today is the beginning of my most challenging love affair. That which is with me.
