I’ve joined a dating site. There I said it! And it’s scary. I decided I needed to when I realized I’m not meeting any new men.
I know that for me to feel attraction for a man, it usually doesn’t come until after I’ve had a good, long look at them. That usually happens when we’re getting to know each other without the prospect of ‘dating’. And I wonder how to make that happen in this artificial world of online dating, where it is all about ‘dating’.
The initial part is easy – you email, then text, then talk on the phone. But when do you decide to meet and how do you keep from making that first meeting ‘all important’?
I haven’t figured that part out yet, but I’m thinking maybe I don’t have to. Maybe I just have to keep taking a step forward. Maybe it’s like making a new friend - you don’t know when you first meet whether you’ll end up acquaintances or best buddies, and you don’t even concern yourself with that question. You just keep going and let the end reveal itself.
Try this ONE thing
Just take one step, then the next, then the next. You never know where you’ll end up.
Hey! Are you already successful and accomplished? Do you have many things to appreciate about your life right now? Are you always open to learning more and growing yourself?
Despite all your successes, do you sometimes doubt yourself? Do you hesitate to go after what you really want in life?
Or maybe you dismiss your past successes, putting them down to luck, and don’t really see how extraordinary you really are?
If this sounds like you, you and I should have a conversation. Drop me a line here, karen.laidlaw.theONEthing@outlook.com, and let’s talk!
