I am a self-proclaimed awful date; I read and talk about books and would much rather sit at home and surf the net than get all dolled up to go meet someone new. I had pretty much resigned myself to being alone forever (at 25) when I had a friend suggest internet dating to me recently.
At first, I thought to myself, no way! That’s something only desperate people do! I’m not desperate. Then I ate my microwaved mac and cheese for dinner and realized I’d better give it a try.
Since then, I have been happily dating, getting out of the house, and having all kinds of fun with all kinds of people. At times I think back to my 25-year-old self sitting on the couch eating my microwavable dinner and I am so happy that I gave it a try! Although I haven’t met “the one” yet, I think with time and patience, I will eventually.
