Playing The Field

I used to think that certain things in life were for losers and seeing as I do not consider myself one, you wouldn’t catch me doing any of them.
Over the years I’ve found that my best matches, as per friendships, come from virtual acquaintances; I’d meet someone online, we would begin communicating with the most innocent intentions and then a romance will be bloom. Due to the fact that it is an online thing, my scepticism gets the best of me sometimes and things just end even before they start.
For the most part of my life, I’ve always fantasised that my prince charming was either an actual prince, Prince William himself, some lonely soul from a foreign land or just some dude from another state- basically, I always felt like it wasn’t someone I already knew. This is why I’ve nursed thoughts of signing up on a dating site. I know how it sounds… This has to be tackiness personified right? I know and I agree, but it doesn’t change the fact that I have to put myself out there if I intend to snag a prince (note to self; Find out which dating site has the most Princes πŸ˜‰ )


I’ve convinced myself that this will work because if I, a normal person, am seeking for something special on a dating site then it only stands to reason that a normal guy somewhere could be thinking the same thing right? Exactly! πŸ˜€
My experience so far hasn’t been promising though. It is at times like this that I want to just heed the voice in my head that tells me it’s alright to stay at home all day and watch movies till it’s time for church… But I always have to make a conscious effort to ignore that voice.
I’ve officially put myself out there to be scrutinised, objectified, criticised, passed over or chosen. If nothing good comes out of it, I’ll take it as fate. Although, me thinking that it may not work is bad in itself isn’t it?
Anyways, I will be updating you on my online ‘shenanigans’ and ‘experimentations’ so be prepared for it and please, drop some pointers for me as well. πŸ˜‰
Have you ever put yourself out there hoping for something special? Did it happen? I could really do with some encouraging stories.
Thanks a bunch. 😘

  1. “Putting yourself out there to be scrutinized, objectified, chosen or passed over”… I think that’s deep. Good thing though, you know that’s how it is just don’t lose sight of that and don’t hold it against the menfolk cos you will also be doing that to themπŸ˜‰ even if unconsciously….


    1. You are so right, Maria. I will tell you now that’s it’s been a very rocky and tiresome journey, but I’m still on it. I like the part of not holding it against the menfolk… I’ll certainly try not to from now on. Thanks for the comment. Any other pointers on making this feat any better?
