Online dating

So, yeah, I tried online dating. I’m not sure I’m the online dating type, but this attempt definitely did not work out for me.  I made the profile.  Searched through the various female profiles for possible matches.  Found some interesting prospects and messaged them.  And then silence.  I did that 10-15 times before I decided to stop.

I’d be hurt by the rejection, but it’s really not that big of a deal.  Some girl read my profile and decided not to respond.  I never responded to anyone that initially contacted me (because they were weird), so I guess I can’t really blame them.  I think I am more of a meet someone in person type of guy rather than this whole awkward online thing anyway.  Maybe I’ll try again in a few months.  We’ll see.

To me, the main point is that I was confident enough to try.  Since gaining a lot of weight I somewhat put my dating life in the backseat.  It was much easier that way.  So just the fact that I was willing to put myself out there again is a step in the right direction.  With each successive step in this thing I’m doing I get more and more confident in myself.  Maybe that will translate into more successes in my personal life.  Maybe not.  Who really knows?  But at least I’m trying.
