Those words were going through my head the other day, probably because it was playing on my iPhone via Pandora. In my life I have told 4 women the words of “I Love You,” Well, I’ve told many more but they are related to me by blood so that is a little different. It is something that I don’t take lightly. It has been about 650 days since I’ve told another person that. I’m not keeping track, I just now how to Google. I am in IT and I am very good at what I do. I am also a dang good Googler. Enough about me, more about these song lyrics.
I may be defined as a hopeless romantic but only because those who try but fail many times may be seen as desperate. I am not desperate nor hopeless. I know what I want and am not afraid to wait for it.
I have also been asked why I am on so much social media and I’ve been called narcissistic because I like taking pictures of myself but the truth is I am not afraid to put myself out there. I may be afraid to pick up a woman at a bar, but definitely not afraid to make matches via a dating app and meet them at a bar.
Unfortunately the days of meeting people in person are long past and may never come back. Those days didn’t have the internet, Google, Facebook, Plenty of Fish (POF.com), or Match.com. The world was a much smaller place then.
Meeting in Person
My parents met at a church camp one summer in high school and are still together to this day. For that I am very grateful. Many of my friends parents aren’t together. I was married and now divorced. Many of my friends have been married and are now divorced. I don’t wear that as a badge of honor. I own it and have move past and am trying to make it right the next time and make sure I don’t make the same mistake next time. Make sure I choose the right woman to stay in my life for the rest of my life.
I have had this idea of writing one page on this website that would tie all my dating apps together and allow me to explain who I am and not have to worry about how many pictures the app allows or any limitations. If you see my profile and go to that link you will know everything about me and then you can decide to swipe right or left on me. I think that is a wonderful idea. The last sentence is redundant because I came up with the idea and of course I think said idea is wonderful. Why would I think my ideas are dumb? I would never state them publicly if I thought that…tangent.
