Confessions of an online dating
And I could no longer rely on just first names—there were scores of Robs, and Daves, and Mikes, and Johns, and Steves and Jeffs. The thrill of the new was more addictive than the comfort of continuity. And its not like I’m posting pictures of my ass all over the place (just my tits) or making racist or fat people comments. I had to make up nicknames for all of them, and designed a spreadsheet with relevant details of each to keep track of it all. And meanwhile, the dating continued, worse than ever. I’d meet guys who never posted pictures, who were in the country for a week, who didn’t know the difference between their, there, and they’re, who voted for Bush. I discovered that on CL I just had to be thin to get responses. I’d take down my ads, I’d tell people I was taking a ‘break’ from dating, I’d arrange to see the same guy several times just to keep me from going on new dates. Except, you know, when they deserve it, the fat fucks….
It may not be in the exact path that we created for ourselves, but in the Bible, God says that His ways are greater than our ways.
“Flash-forward to today: I am still struggling to trust God all the time.
“About six months ago, I met a guy on a popular dating app….
Never did I think that this guy would become someone so special to me, and someone whom I came to love so dearly.
But always, inevitably, I’d log in just to see who was out there, what new ads were posted in my absence.I’d get reeled back in. Its not like I’m checking out Cleveland or Barcelona Rn R.
One evening, I was running late to a coffee date at Cosi with someone who responded to my MC (I really didn’t miss anyone, actually), because my “strictly platonic” language exchange date (evidently the guy wanted to know how to lick pussy in English) ran late, and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to make the 9 pm date with the endangered species eating Adams Morgan muscle man.
I took down all my ads, asked a friend to change the passwords on my e-mail accounts and (sob) cancelled DSL.
And slowly, with each day that passed, I regained some semblance of normalcy. There are times I click on M4W and then I think—do I want to date, or do I want to live? So, now, when I really, REALLY need to post, I turn to Rn R. Just to blow off some steam, on occasion, just socially you know.
Although PI doesn’t support dating apps, we’re not saying people can’t meet their potential husband online—however, girls, make sure you’re over 18 if you are dating, and if you’re living at home, make sure your parents approve of you going out with someone if he’s not connected to you directly through friends or family.
In this day and age, there are many counterfeits and it can be very dangerous meeting strangers online.
Pray and wait for the Lord to show the right person and the right plan that HE has for your life. He does not tolerate people or things coming in the way of Him.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
