So I completely lost my mind this week and responded to a Craigslist ad. I couldn't help it. It was not like most of the other ads and talked about doing all the things I love to do (explore the city, walk in the park, museums, etc.) and indicated that he would not be bothered by my size. I know Craigslist has a bad reputation and to be honest I am one of the people that thinks that way. Nothing horrible has happened so don't worry. In fact nothing has happened after a brief email exchange that ended once I sent my pictures. I'm used to this happening, but it has been so long since I've even bothered trying that I forgot how painful it is. It isn't the rejection that is painful, but the dashing of hope. I can't believe I can still be hopeful after so much time alone. I'm not sure how much longer that will last.
