Date with Myself

I'm pretty sure that I've written before about friend dates and dating oneself, etc.

I've been dating lately. I've only been on a few dates though because between volunteer meetings and family home evening and scuba diving and grad school and friend's bday parties and working, I don't have a lot of nights free. This means that I often can't make a date for weeks at a time. Men either have to be willing to wait it out because they're so into me or because they have no other social prospects. I'm not sure which.

Despite only being on a few dates, I am tired of this dating thing already. Not because its been a bad experience but because I miss having nights to myself. And because after a while every man seems like the same man and I can't keep track of them unless I name them after their religion, political affiliation or profession (whichever stands out more). Apparently only atheists with PhDs ask me out these days which makes it real hard to tell them apart.

While this post might be a heck of a lot funnier if it were a dating post, it isn't.

Well. Maybe it is.

Because I am going to start dating this blog.

One thing that often falls to the wayside are my various writing projects. They don't have externally imposed deadlines and so far, writing doesn't pay the bills. So I never have time to write. But I love it, I need it, it makes me feel happy and satisfied. Just like a good date or a good meal or a good roll in the hay.

So now, my suitors will have to line up for even longer because I've just taken another date night out of circulation. My Friday nights will be spent with Singlutionary.

Of course, I still have to finish out the next two dates. Oh. It is so exhausting. And of course if a really great prospect comes along, I'll go out with him on a Friday night and skip my Singlutionary date that week. I've got to balance real life with online life.

But, once again, this raises the bar. I won't give up Singlutionary night to go out with some bozo that I know I'm not interested in.

Not that I would anyways. But there was a day when I would have.

So the point is: Check back here on Saturday morning with your cup of Singlutionary coffee.

And if there isn't anything new, well, you know there is a big story coming the next week!

I used to have something similar each Saturday night - it was my "date with my desk" ;-)

I actually called it this .... eg. I'm having a date with my desk tonight :-) :-)

Good luck with your new date nights :-) hope you have a great time on them :-)

I have to use my "dating" time as writing time too. Tonight, for example. I am hard at work writing. Actually, I am hard at work *warming up* for writing by watching back-to-back episodes of 30 Rock and eating popcorn. And reading Singlutionary! = )

I say date your blog, date your girlfriends...but don't lose sight of the fun of a cute boy date, too. Spread it around, but you choose. www.TheSpinsterliciousLife.com

The freedom to choose how we spend our time makes us rich...and truly unique. Can I share something? If I were one of your suitors, buying for your attention and selective care, I wouldn't want you to feel obliged to "carry on with it." Don't go! If you'd rather be someplace else, honor that...unless you think one of these suitors has potential?

Ahhh. Special K. None of my suitors had potential but I did have a good time. And now I am officially done with dating for a while.

It looks like you have less time when it comes to dates but as long as you are happy, you have to just do what you are doing. But sometimes, you also have to set things and find time for yourself to find a date. Just don't force it. Sometimes, the person that is for us will just come when we least expect it. :)

Great blog! I was searching for dating and relationship blogs and found your site through another blog I found searching: www.burisonthecouch.wordpress.com

I enjoyed their humor and insight. I'm glad searching led me your way. Thanks for the post! I'll be sure to follow.
