Possibilities...

I bet you all are wondering how my Match.com adventures are going! No? Oh well, you're gonna hear about it anyway! Mwahahhhaha! ;)

It's pretty slow going... Maybe I'm being too picky? Maybe I'm not taking it seriously enough? Maybe I just don't care? Right now, I'm just going with the flow, not taking anything too seriously and just trying to have fun.

I have been conversing with one guy that might have potential... We started emailing each other through our personal email accounts, then through Facebook and now through text. We are supposed to go out this Saturday night. So far, he seems very nice.

It sucks that women have to play games, but let's face it... WE DO. We can't seem too available and to appear that way a girl can't respond too quickly. She can't say yes to a date that is only a couple of days away. I may be completely off base here, but I can't help but think every time I respond to a text or an email, Am I responding too soon? Will he think I'm desperate?

I know, I know... stop playing the mind games and just be myself and for the most part I am. I'm just not completely putting myself out there ... yet. And there's nothing wrong with that!

i think games are for the birds...personally. after so many horrible dates and relationships gone bad i've finally discovered its time to just be myself and put it all out there...because eventually its all going to be put on the table and why not up front. games tend to only get us more hurt. i do believe its a wonderful feeling when the guy is the pursuer but if you let them do all the work eventually they will take that as us being uninterested. ugh..so complicated! good luck :)

I despise the game playing that dating seems to require. Which is why I actually hate the beginning stages of relationships. Everyone romanticizes them and says they are so fan-freaking-tastic, but I look forward to 3 months in when you know you both like each other and you can call him whenever you want!!

Yeah, the games pretty much suck! you'll be dishing about how Saturday goes, right? :)
Either way, I hope all goes well!

By the way, I just tagged you in a photo meme if you are interested.

I don't necessarily think it is games. I think there is a certain way women should carry themselves in relationships. Men should respect the fact that we can't drop everything to have a date with them and so they should ask us a few days in advance. I also personally don't call guys. They should take the lead and initiative in the relationship and if they aren't willing to call, they aren't that very interested. One thing I have learned is that if a guy wants something bad enough, he will do what it takes to get it.
The title of this book is really lame but it actually has good advice about how women should conduct themselves in relationships and what God wants for us as women. http://www.amazon.com/Secrets-Irresistible-Woman-Smart-Capturing/dp/0736916830/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1254865091&sr=1-1

Ahhh, I can't wait to hear how your date went. I've been considering online dating although the thought of actually signing up kills me. I feel like I'll be admitting defeat! I know some of my friends have met some awesome guys on there, but I don't know. I hope your date went welllll!! xoxo
