Dating Hiatus

Updated: Sep 27, 2019

Well, summer’s over and it’s been quite an experience in the online dating world. But for now, I’m taking a break from the 'swipe' life & focusing on revising Split, Book 2 in my Blurred Borders Series. I’d met a few more lackluster guys- who didn’t really pique my interest- now I need to refocus my energy.

But then, true to my I like you too much or not at all form, I met one for a lunch date that lasted like seven hours. Definitely chemistry, but amongst the white-hot sparks, there were quite a few flaming red flags. (And I’m not the type to throw stones, so I won’t list them, but I’ll call myself out & be honest- they were a deep scarlet shade & deep down, I knew better)! But, I justified them and I quickly crowned him my new favorite person. His reign lasted a mere few weeks.

He lives hours away now, which was up in the air when we met, but everything does happen for a reason. We tried to be ‘friends’- and we were talking/messaging daily- (but I’m not so sure that’s going to happen after he lost his title- and due to the lengthy messages I sent last night- the kind that don’t fit on the screen).

While feeling sorry for myself and wondering why I can’t ever meet the right guy & actually enjoy a blissful, budding romance, I came across some quotes. So, I closed the Tinder app in the other window, and re-read the quotes that summarized actually what I needed to be reminded of & what I’m looking for in a man.

Thus, I’m going to revise my book and sort of cleanse my ‘dating expectations’ palate over the next few weeks.

I’ll post the quotes below- and my next blog post will be on another topic!
