Dionne Farris - Hopeless
I love this song. It was on the soundtrack of my favorite movie, Love Jones. Darius Lovehall and Nina Mosley. **sigh** If only that’s how it was in real life.
But it’s not. Online dating blows.
I know I’ve only given it a little over a week but I am so done. I’m tired of being contacted by men who are more than 300 miles away. I’m tired of the random “hey boo”. I don’t want your phone number after one half-hearted email. I don’t give my number out that easily in real life. I’m tired of men who are involved with someone (or living with someone) and are just looking for a little something on the side. I’m tired of the acceptable matches looking at my profile and not getting in touch. I’m tired of initiating contact and being shot down. I am so done.
The truth is … I don’t want to meet anyone online. What happened to the days when a man walked up to you in real life and introduced himself and asked you out for coffee? Okay, I do remember last spring when a guy did walk up to me in the grocery store and introduce himself and I shot him down. Ugh! Man, I wish that guy was around now. In my defense, last spring I was in full training mode and all I could focus on was getting ready for the upcoming contest. Well, now that some time has passed I think I can focus on training and a new guy. If he’s the right guy.
I think I’ll watch Love Jones again today just so I can experience some romance. Even if it is someone else’s … and fictional.
