Dipping into the Dating Pool Again?

2 Mar

Friends are telling me to jump in the pool!  Sign up for online dating! Go out and have fun! Of course, all of them are either married, seriously dating, or hate men so much they never want to see one again.

While the thought of going out sounds fun, the fear of rejection and creeps is holding me back.  I’ve done the online dating thing before.  Granted, it has worked out in some capacity in the past, it still scares the crap out of me.

It’s almost like another job…sifting through the profiles or swiping left and right, deleting/blocking the perverts, and weeding through the maybes to see if they’re first date worthy.  I feel like I deserve overtime pay from the dating gods.

I’m pondering the idea and over the next few months, I will be chronicling my slow entrance back into the dating wading pool.  I am not ready for the deep end yet.  Slow and steady, tip-toe into the water, and maybe sport some floaties to make sure I keep mentally and emotionally afloat.
