It goes without saying that during span of this life I've lived, I have gone through many challenging moments: coming to this country without speaking the language, giving birth to my kids, starting a business from the ground up, and now DATING ONLINE (oh God)!!!!
I have a very full and busy life, yet, like all of you, having a companion to share this busy and full life with would be nice. I've taken myself online to see what kind of opportunity I can find there! Wow, it is so difficult to accept that people are scrolling through my pictures and profiles as though they're looking through a Sears tool catalog. It just doesn't feel comfortable for me! Is it for you?
Since I was at a young, I never had the problem of male companionship. Of course, I did get married at the age of 17 and stayed married for 18 years, so I wasn't quite available to the single's scene in my younger stage. But I see dating has evolved now with the influence of the infamous internet. You don't just buy shoes over the internet, you can also find a companion, daresay a husband (oh God!). I used to swear to myself that I would never succumb to online dating, but I fell for it. Just like I used to say I would never wear Ugg boots, and now I wear them all winter long!!
In your profile you have to write all of your attributes. Ummm, Hello?! We all lie about it! I don't put that I have a big nose and a very thick accent. Instead, I put that I'm nice, intelligent, and beautiful. (All true according to my mother!)
But I keep the faith because I constantly hear from my friends and my customers that they are in a nice relationship with someone they met on one of those dating sites. I still don't understand how people can buy shoes on the internet without seeing them first in person, checking the fit! So I can much less imagine how you can imagine spending quality time with a person who you've only sized by the photo online. But I must adapt to the new era and I swear I am willing to try anything!
However, you don't need to adapt when it comes to buying shoes, I promise you will always have me!
Do you have any tips to give me to make this online thing more comfortable? Have you been online and hated or loved it? Either way wish me luck!
