So my mom recently met "the man of her dreams" within two months of trying online dating and yet here I still sit on POF...
Upon learning the news of my mother finding her "soul mate" via an online dating website I took some time to reevaluate my own love life. What I realized was that I don't have one but I also came up with a few possible reasons why it happened so fast for her and yet it's not happening at all for me:
Reason # 1. My mom is easy
Now, I highly doubt this is true but I can't rule it out as a possibility.
Reason # 2. I suck at dating...and life...but mainly dating
This seems a little more believable but who am I kidding. I'm delightful.
Reason # 3. You can't truly understand love until you reach the age when the AARP commercials start making sense
Could be. Might take a certain maturity to truly appreciate online dating. Or maybe you just lower your standards as you get older.
Reason # 4. You get what you pay for
This is a free dating site...Need I say more?
Regardless of the reason, here I am in all of my glory...
I'm okay with being single. I'm comfortable with me. I would like to find my better half whoever he may be. If I even have one. I might be one of those people that rock their golden years solo.
Hard work is important to me and I am passionate about what I do. I am a paralegal for a civil rights law firm and I enjoy the work that I do. It is a thankless job but I like being able to advocate for those who can't advocate for themselves. I root for the underdog and I can not stand to see someone get pushed around.
I'm not a size two. I never will be and would probably look pretty strange that skinny.
I'm heavily tattooed. I keep them covered in my professional life and sometimes in my personal life depending on the situation.
