Did I mention that I've activated my dating profile on Plenty of Fish and Christian Mingle? As many of you knew, I had threatened to join a dating site back in May. But I just couldn't do it whole heartedly back then. I still feel a little weird about it now, if you must know. But now, my journey into online dating is just pure comedy.
The last profile I just read at the dating site Christian Mingle was actually pretty good, until I looked more closely at this guy's profile pic. He had the word "BEAST" tattooed on the front of his neck. Needless to say, I wasn't actually turned off by it, I just mostly couldn't stop laughing. It was like this moment in time where I just looked around, and said to the air, "Wow. This is my life."
But, regardless, I find consolation in the fact that there are millions, yes millions of lonely people out there. And here I thought I was being weird, putting my vulnerability out there for all to see. Only to find out that a majority of the world is still "looking".
While I may be "looking", my frame of mind is in a much better place now than it was back in May. There is such an overwhelming sense of fulfillment that I feel in my own life right now, that anything that adds to it at this point is truly the icing.
They may laugh at you now, but keep on walking and standing tall.
