Dating

Kiss! :-*

In the past, one of the most common topics I used to write about was my dating and relationship experiences.  (I just checked the Tag Cloud, and discovered that it is THE most common topic, with 124 posts having been written about the subject…)  However, in the past 12 months I’ve only written 3 posts tagged ‘relationships’ and only 1 post tagged ‘dating’.  I only realised this yesterday and felt quite amazed.

If you’ve been aware of my dating and relationship history over the years, you’d be amazed too.   🙂

Some weeks ago I met someone via Facebook who runs a dating agency.  I ended up getting an extremely good deal that was simply too good for me to refuse, and I became a member.  She’s been wanting me to fill out a profile so that she can put me into her database and match me up with some nice ladies.  While this is certainly an attractive prospect, I just don’t feel the ‘urgency’ to get this done asap.  The profile has been wanting my attention now for about 3 or more weeks, and I just can’t feel any excitement or inspiration to fill it out.  I’ll do it soon, but there’s other things I give priority to.

This new way of being is something I really like.  I suspect it’s a new phase of my life, where I’m happy with being myself, and I just don’t feel the need to go out looking for relationships or even dating.   I like it.

I’ve met this girl online.

It’s not unusual, as there’s plenty of them out there. But I like this one. The last girl that I met online and liked was just over 4 years ago, so it’s been a while.

I haven’t met her yet. I don’t even know if we’ll ever meet, but it’s likely we will.

She’s going through some emotional challenges right now. It seems that I’m the first person in a long time that’s made her feel like she’d like something more, and that scares her. And for me, she’s the first person in a long time who’s made me feel like I want something more too.

That doesn’t scare me though. It excites me.

Like everything, time will tell a story. And it’ll be on this blog. 🙂

Whatever you want

7 August 2005

It was about 10 years ago, while I was in Canberra. This was before dating websites were all the rage. It was when Netscape 3 was popular, and Internet Explorer was hardly heard of. ICQ and IRC were the chat programs of choice. But back then, I had only just started using the internet. I […]

Dating For Men

Rejected Again

4 July 2005

It doesn't matter how good looking you are, or how confident you are, or how funny you are, or how much you prepare. You will always be rejected by someone. There's a saying: "you can't please everyone all the time". And neither can you please all the women all the time. So don't try. Accept […]

Dating update

18 November 2004

What a nice day it is today. The weather is great, and I'm in a great mood. I just got back from lunch with the girl I met a couple weeks ago, and it was a nice time. First, she was 20 mins late, but instead of worrying about that, I was enjoying the weather […]

Changes

1) I'm working on creating a new role at work. I've seen a need in the company for a Client Relationship Manager, someone who attends to the happiness of the client above and beyond just getting money out of them. I've approached my managers with this perception of how to add value to what we […]

Dating update

18 October 2004

Now that I'm single again and not seeing anyone else at all, I've decided to remain this way for a while. I'm not going to go looking for any relationships with any women for a while. Instead, I'm just going to have a good time with doing my own thing. If any women feel like […]

Serious update

12 February 2004

Thank you for joining me in the latest installment of the life of me. It's a pleasure to be with you again. I've been quiet for a few weeks because I've been processing things that have been happening in my life; particularly the ongoing saga of Zhenzhen. It's been ongoing because her and I have […]
