Now that I am starting to feel on the up and up, I am feeling like dating again. The opposite sex is beginning to be exciting and interesting to me again now that depression is not weighing so heavily on my mind, body, and spirit. It has just been so long since I have done it that I fear I have forgotten how to do it. Also how does one date My friend Jim introduced me to his friend Amanda and gave me her email address. Now is the time to pony up and write her an email except I don’t even know what to say. What does a man on Social Security Disability say?
Part of me feels like plunging ahead and just writing a quick email and at least starting the conversation. After all, the conversation has to start somewhere and Jim feels that Amanda and I might make a really good connection. Amanda saw what I looked like from a virtual movie night on Zoom with Jim and his wife and some other friends. If figured she would not have given me her email if she was not at least curious. I know I am curious because she looked cute. I made the mistake of taking my medicine too early and crashed hard.
So the mission for this morning is to sit down and write a nice, kind, thoughtful email and see where things go. My friend Jim wants me to join Facebook for Facebook dating and I am hesitant. I am also thinking of trying OK Cupid again even though I have never had any luck. Jim said at the very least OK Cupid can be entertaining and to take it at its face value. Part of me has to believe in myself enough to put me out there. What makes dating successful is belief in one’s own self worth. You have to really believe you have something to offer somebody and I offer kindness, compassion, and loyalty. I believe those are worth a lot in difficult times.
Hopefully I will have some interesting stories to tell in the coming days. For now, I hope my readers have a wonderful Sunday morning.
