Mkay, so the current situation is that it’s been years since I've dated anyone. I had been in back to back long-term relationships for over a decade before say, mid 2010. After the last one, I just wanted to stop and take stock of where I was and what I’ve been doing. I felt that this was the appropriate action, however I also found myself having to reconcile it with the cultural pressures of being an unwed woman over twenty-five. When you’re in your late twenties and still have no ring on your finger or any prospects, even your parents start looking you up and down like you’re defective.

and call her in the late afternoon.
Thus, I'm re-entering the dating arena. I can wait til I meet someone worthwhile, but I figured I’d better at least go about seeking a partner in a way that opens me up to as many options as possible. This means doing things like actually making time to go out even though I’m crazy busy, and reevaluating my standards, wants, and needs. I’ve also decided try online dating. Now, I‘ve totally been warned that the online dating world is filled with locos, liars, and losers who are married and/or live with their mommas. Still, I figured that there have to be some people out there like me who just want to be open to possibilities. So this is the starting point. I’ll keep you posted.
