So this weekend was date weekend. Unfortunately guys I don’t have great news for you. The guy in particular was very nice and fairly good looking. There just wasn’t the connection that I wanted.
I am looking for someone who can really make me laugh and unfortunately it was not going to be him. As I said he was a lovely guy and we did get along but I wasn’t exactly wishing time to stand still so we could spend longer together. If anything I was thinking how I would rather have been at home having a cup of tea and a chat with my Mum and Dad. That makes him sound boring which isn’t fair as he really wasn’t and conversation flowed fine. If I am honest I kept thinking how very different it was being there with him to being out with Mr FWB. Don’t get me wrong that doesn’t mean that I want Mr FWB it just means don’t want anything less than the fun we had.
This has kind of confirmed though that online dating isn’t really the right thing for me. I will stay online for now (I am signed up for 3 months so would be pointless coming off) I am just not going to pin my hopes on meeting someone on there. I think there is too much pressure on the first date to hopefully find each other the perfect match without actually getting to know each other as friends. As I have said before I am a big believer in being friends first and then building a relationship from that. This is obviously just my opinion and that doesn’t mean I would ever tell anyone not to give it ago. At the end of the day you really have nothing to lose trying these things.
Unfortunately Mr Online was interested in me and asked to see me again to which I explained he wasn’t what I was looking for. I did not enjoy doing that one little bit and afterwards felt really bad. I couldn’t however have gone on another date with him knowing I was only doing it for his sake and not my own. I also wasn’t going to lie and do the whole “it’s not you, it’s me” as the truth is it was a bit of both.
On a slightly brighter note Dana and I have decided to try speed dating. I think this is going to be a little better for me as there is less pressure with meeting someone and it actually looks like it could be a lot of fun. I will let you know when that is happening and keep you up to date with how it turns out.
For now however I am still Singlegirl! x
