Anyone else out there feeling like this internet dating isn't all it's cracked up to be? All the couples on the match commercials look so happy... and more importantly...normal! (Oh yeah, forgot -- COMMERCIALS) I swear, I am so ready to run over to Whole Foods, find a nice guy and intentionally slam into his cart with mine. Works in the movies, right? But in real life, especially in LA, I'd probably just wind up breaking some eggs and getting sued. Ironically, I really am a very positive person (trust me, keep reading!) But this dating stuff can wear you out a bit. Seems to be a little more dishonesty and misrepresentation than I would have expected. Isn't it hard enough finding that needle in the haystack when people are being who they really are??
Anyway, I'm an East coast transplant enjoying life in sunny CA. Love working with and helping others, and currently in the process of furthering my education with a graduate degree so I am even better able to do that. I've had several good relationships in the past, but have still never found "the one." I'm just not willing to settle, as I've sadly seen too many people do. I'm very down to earth and extremely "glass half-full." If I can't think of at least five things to be grateful for everyday...I'm not thinking enough! Love my Jewish background in a cultural sense but I'm definitely more spiritual than religious. Yes, I really am 44 and no, I haven't had anything "artificial" done. Is it really that rare to simply be blessed with good genes and take care of yourself? I'm very into music (listening to all kinds and practicing my guitar), exercise, hanging with friends, movies, and more... Getting to visit with my amazing niece and nephew back East is always a treat! Simply put, looking for my soul mate. Are you out there? (BTW, extra points if you know who said, "Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans." ... or at least if you think it's cool!)
P.S. I truly appreciate all the emails and visitors I get, but if I don't write back, please know that I just don't feel it's a click. (SENDING LOTS OF EMAILS WON'T CHANGE MY MIND.)
When the person is right, the place doesn't really matter. Grabbing a coffee or drink usually seems to be a good start, but I do prefer cozy unique places. No Starbucks please! First dates can be tough enough without shouting over blenders!! Seriously though, it would be great if the chemistry is there, and we're both already looking forward to a second date :)
