Dating? We’ve all done it at one time or another, maybe…
We have our list of traits that we want in a mate.
We have our list of deal breakers.
We have our list of “things” that we would like to get out of the relationship.
We also have a “type” somewhere in the back of our head of just what our mate should look like, and just how they should carry themselves.
With that being said, we know on initial contact at times that this right here just won’t work.
There are many reasons why we may decide on that, but I think the main factor is and this is unfortunate for many, is the ability to judge a book by its cover.
Do not get me wrong ~ Looks are the first thing that is noticed(we are visual creatures); the way their lips curve up when the smile, the way that they can stroll into a room and demand all eyes on them; and do not forget the way that their eyes can hold your gaze so intently. Whether we would want to agree/believe it or not, the physical appearance tends to overrule in most instances and would normally be the “thing” that would help us in making our decision.
I recently joined a popular dating site and that lasted all of about two weeks.
I’ve tried the online dating and I really don’t believe it is the way for me to put myself out there. Call me old-fashioned, or just call me old, but it just doesn’t do it for me. I gave it a go, I could have held out a bit longer, but I just couldn’t.
I had one guy who was bold enough to have married me in just his introduction (that is what it felt like) to me…
Turn off? MAJOR
So, if I have to go about putting myself out there the old fashioned way so be it.
I know I will not lose sleep over it. I will continue to be the best me that I can be!
Continue to make YOU a better YOU ~ everyone benefits from this, but mainly the person that matters the most!!!!!!
