Time for Plan B

Well, I’m sure you all are hoping for another post about the joys of online dating, but sadly, there is nothing new to report there. Just the same crop of guys kissing their snakes, or licking their guitars, or sending creepy messages like this:

“Great individual,,,honestly if I get a chance to live with u rest of my life den I will never miss dat :)” 24 • Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

This site is THE place to go if you want to lower your self esteem like 10 notches. I even labeled the bookmark for it: ‘Ugh’ because that’s how I feel going to check on the latest crop of ‘matches.’ Really? That’s the best that’s out there? Guitar lickers or guys that like my profile that live nowhere remotely near me?

I think I’ll stay single. Or at the very least switch dating sites. Shivers. (Not for awhile though)

As of this post, I am logging off the site I had been using, and at least for awhile, will focus my energy onto something more productive, like my writing. That always has my back. I’m never alone if I have my words to keep me company. Hell, if I want to cuddle, I’ll do it with a good book and a glass of wine.

Not to worry, folks. I’ve already ordered the crazy cat lady starter kit so I’ll have someone to talk to when I stop listening to myself; it should arrive Tuesday, along side the mega box of allergy pills cause I’m allergic to cats.

  1. Danielle,
    Whenever you are faced with a difficult situation, you always “fall back” on your writing, and achieve some semblance of inner peace. So my advice to you is to focus on your writing and use those other situations as a “fall back” when your writing comes up against a wall.
    If you believe in fate (and I know you do) rest assured that there is someone out there (not from Dubai) that you are destined to meet…some one with which you can spend your dottered years (see how I didn’t end that sentence with a preposition?).
    But remember, my dear…you will always have your wonderful children and your wonderful friends and your wonderful words.
    So quit your bitchin’ and get back to that computer.
