Wonderland indeed! More like Wonder-why-I-entered-into-this-Land. I feel like I’ve fallen down the Rabbit Hole. And just like Alice, I’m encountering my own menagerie of strange characters.
If you’ve been watching my web series on You Tube (Click Here) then you’d know that I am knee deep in a New Year’s resolution to try online dating. And so far it’s been wildly unproductive. All I’ve been matched with are a bunch of Tweedles. Men who think that the best way to talk to a woman is to say things like “Hey baby” and “I think I’m going to give up if you don’t talk to me.”
True story. Someone actually sent me that message. What am I supposed to do with that? You’re giving up on dating? On me? On life???? Seriously!!! Online dating is exactly like a fairy tale. Except the story’s kinda scary and doesn’t have a happy ending and is full of really terrifying, evil fairies.
It’s not that way for everyone and I even know that it won’t always be that way for me. Each connection is different. And I am proud of the fact that I haven’t let my past and current experience jade me from trying new ones. I like new adventures. I always have and I imagine I always will. But this Rabbit Hole is getting a little dark for me. Where is my White Rabbit? My plucky Cheshire Cat? Hell, at this point I’d take the pipe smoking Caterpillar. Stick around. And let’s see how this fairy tale continues to go, shall we?
