Every once in a while I get a bee in my bonnet about dating. I think this round was precipitated by the recent Craigslist incident and a remark that I made on Twitter.
I've been thinking a lot about the saying you have to kiss a lot of frogs to find your prince. That's fine but where do you find the frogs?
The more I thought about it the more I realized that if I hope to one day meet that prince charming I really am going to have to put myself out there a lot more. That is pretty hard for me because I'm pretty picky, have a hard time with confidence and an overactive imagination. Instead of just seeing where things go with this person or that person I focus on one little issue and blow it up in my head and come up with reasons why it won't work and all this usually before any emails are exchanged.
Well I'm going to have to work on it. I'm going to have to kiss a lot of frogs, or at least respond to their messages when they send me one. I cleaned up my profiles on several dating sites and we will see what happens. I don't expect much since I get this way every once in a while, but it is the first time that I've gone into it realizing that I may be looking for a frog and not a prince.
