So, it’s a new year? I decided to make the daunting decision of signing up to a dating app! I haven’t used one in 2 years. Now needless to say that doesn’t mean I haven’t been on a date in 2 years but dating sites are different aren’t they?
It took me so long to arrange my profile, I want to come across and the fun, bubbly girl I consider myself to be but there is also so much more about me that is just so difficult to get across without going overkill. For example it asked my ideal date… Now if I am being genuinely honest that ideal date would be a drive to a beach in a pick up truck, camped out watching the sunset from the back of the pick up with a blanket and a glass of wine. But, I live in the UK, so the likelihood of that ever happen is pretty f**king slim! The fact is, I am sure many people can relate (Or at least I hope when I say this) that as much as I love a laugh and a good old drink on a night out and can act as carefree and rowdy as I like, I also like the simple things, like a long walk in the countryside and then finish off at a pub lunch. I’m happy that the entertainment solely relies on the participants of the date making random conversation and enough jokes that you go home feeling like your abs (hidden under that little belly) will explode.
But the fact that I switch from one persona to the next makes me a little bit harder to market in the dating world. I want to plan spontaneous trips or days out, I just don’t want to keep having to do them alone, or not at all because I feel like I can’t possibly look that sad to turn up to an event alone. So where is the middle ground? How do I find a happy medium where I am not missing out on the things I really want to do because I want someone to enjoy the experience with so I end up not doing them at all?
Well, here goes, I have officially created my profile, I have absolutely no clue what I am doing on there and within the first 5 minutes of being active a profile that matched mine was a complete catfish. BUT I STILL HAVE A LITTLE FAITH.
