Some days are great, others are not...but no matter what twists and turns I encounter, you can be sure I'm going to write about it!

Leap of Faith

Dating is a world I am not familiar with. I have only been on two dates since little-man came into my life...both with different guys...and both leading to nowhere (fast). I have had many conversations with friends about wanting to get back into the dating scene, and have also had many brainstorming sessions about how I was going to accomplish this. Well, consider it accomplished.
I can't remember if I've written about this already, and if I have than just skip to the bottom. About two weeks ago, I was paroozing a dating website to see what was "out there" when I stumbled across a guy that I knew. I thought it would be funny to sign up so I could give him a hard time, and also to say hi. In the meantime, I messaged a random guy who caught my eye and we started talking.
A couple of days later I received an email from a different dating website where I had a profile posted, but had not signed up (yes, I am that pathetic that I was using two different dating websites...but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do!!). The email entailed a list of possible matches, and the random guy from Y.P was included (which i thought was funny since I wasn't the only person using multiple dating websites..hehe)
We finally talked on the phone, found out we had extremely random things in common, and decided to meet for dinner. I was nervous as all get-up, but it turned out to be a great evening.
I can proudly say that I am back in the dating world!


  1. yay!!! you did it! i have a very good friend who met her husband this very way. so it isn't anything to be ashamed of--it can work! she's proof! :) glad it went well.

  2. Congratulations on taking the "leap." Even if it had been bad, which it wasn't, you still put yourself out there. :) Remember: it's not about where you begin, it's where you end up and how you get there. Good luck!
