In honor of Valentine’s Day I’m pontificating a bit on the subject of love.
I’ve never been boy crazy. I’m too impatient and stubborn to put up with the games that can come with casually dating; that outweighed the times it was hard to be the single gal amongst all my friends and their long-term significant others.
Call it naive or a nicer term, hopeful, but I always had the thought in the back of my mind “you could meet someone tomorrow”. And that more or less got me through most of my twenties.
I decided I was emotionally ready to date so I signed up for online dating. I know it can be a strike out, but again I don’t waste my own time; it was three months between the first conversation with Kevin and our first date.
Was it awkward and stressful? Yes. Was it worth it? Absolutely yes. I found the love of my life.
So it’s totally ok to be picky and choose yourself. Being true to who you are completely outweighs having someone.
