Dear Mr. Man

Dear Mr. Man,

I was super excited to go out with you because you seemed a little bit different. Smart, funny but serious too, and kind. I enjoyed hearing all about your health journey (initially).

Your muscles are amazing, I love them! Your smile is great, you smell nice (I would like your cologne to be less sweet). You are lovely to look at, good for a kiss, and very tall.

However…the fact that you are consistently referring to how awesome you look, how sexy you are (especially in comparison to other guys in your age bracket), what an exceptional lover you are, how intelligent you are and what a great catch you are ON THE FIRST DATE is really super unappealing.

Suggestion…maybe ask how I am, what I do, how’s the weather….anything that’s not about you. Obviously you are a busy man, as demonstrated by your strong connection with your phone. Although, I’m thinking you might have an even stronger bond with your mirror.

So…a bit of Wednesday Wisdom…It does not matter how beautifully the cake is frosted when the inside isn’t baked.

Just saying!

Online Dating…momentary creepy-dom

And all of a sudden it struck me….guys I don’t know are assessing me online and it feels creepy weird. It never felt creepy weird before.

Hmmm….perhaps I am overtired. Perhaps I know it’s going to be a crazy busy year. Perhaps I have high hopes that people can still meet each other in the real world. Perhaps I feel bad because once recently, I messed something really sweet up because I just plain wasn’t ready.

Maybe it’s hard to believe that there really is something to hope for because I might be messing up for a very long time. Maybe I just want to have fun and soak in all the love. Maybe I’m going to be at it again in another day very soon…but for now, I have very successfully creeped myself out with my own thoughts.

Just happy to be working at my cute little desk with my precious family around in our snuggly little home on this December evening.
