I hear you, Kristin… I think a lot of what people put in their profiles for online sites or throw out there in conversations, is bait. They’re trolling. People are hoping the right word or combination of *keywords* will snag a TOTALLY likely suspect. But then the real work begins. (if you’re ever able to get to that point!)
The problem is too many people have this misconception of winning the lotto of life, capturing that one-in-a-million prospect, their soulmate!😐
WTF is that all about?
I can’t imagine someone donning the mantle of the one and only, true love of my life!😀
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve met amazing people and dated some that rocked my world, but there’s always a little something that isn’t quite right… just a smidge off… but that’s reality and damn it, that is okay, because how fucking boring would life be if I were with my “perfect” mate?
Differences are the spice of life! Maybe too many differences might be a little too spicey, but there needs to be some challenges! If it were perfect, where would the fun be in that?
I’m out there in the online dating world and I read all these women’s profiles (and it’s lots of fun…), but I see that they want this, that, and the other thing, but no drama. l
No damn drama…
How do you live an interesting life and not have a little drama? How could you expect an interesting life if you’re teamed up with your ideal partner, your soulmate, one who fulfills your every desire? (think I’m gonna get sick here…😩)
I believe that we all need to conduct periodic gut checks when it comes to finding a love interest. Maybe once a month or so, step back and analyze our requirements, our absolutes and probablies. Make sure that we really really really need all that. I’m not suggesting that we should compromise our positions, but make sure that our requirements come from our own hearts and not those that try to influence our every move, because ultimately, we are the ones that make our lives work… or not.
Thank you for the story, Kristin, and I hope my little rant wasn’t too out of line. Peace! ✌
