Sitting here thinking about dating again. 2022 is the year I’m going to stop standing on the sidelines and jump in the game. COVID doesn’t seem to be going anywhere and I’m just wasting time waiting for things to go back to “normal.” Slowly but surely I’m coming to terms with this is it. This is how things are going to be from here on out. More than likely, I am going to meet my next significant other virtually. Question is, where do I begin?
Some of my friends have suggested online dating sites. Ugh!! I really don’t want to go that route. To me it’s like online shopping, I really don’t like it. I would rather go to the store so that I can examine the products in person. Then there’s social media. Y’all, I receive so many direct messages. My problem with those are, I cannot tell if the accounts are real. People have created fake accounts in my name so who is to say the person contacting me is who they claim to be. About a week ago, some guy with a suspicious handle started following me and sent me a DM. I probably spent 30 minutes trying to figure out if the account was real or fake. According to his profile he was a pretty successful business owner, and of course there was a website included to make the account look legit. And on the surface it did. However, there were a few red flags. The account was fairly new. Only a few pictures posted. He had quite a few followers and wasn’t following too many people (which was good). But he was only following women. Why?! Seemed creepy to me. Listen y’all, I almost notified the real person through the contact information on the website. I was going to let them know that someone was impersonating them. However, I didn’t. I let it go. To this day, I still do not know if the account was real or fake. Honestly, the social media thing is so creepy. I believe I would be more open to communicating if they sent video messages. I need to see and hear them.
Okay, back to my question, where do I begin? I’m trying not to do the timeline thing again (almost 50) but I am so tired of doing things solo. Don’t get me wrong, I love spending time with my girlfriends and kids, but I need adult male companionship, too. I need a male I can laugh with, eat with, travel with, have fun with, dream with and make memories with. Perhaps I should ask Santa to send me one for Christmas. Lol
Okay… I’m done. Hopefully this is my last random rambling blog for this year.
