I'm starting to question if maybe online dating isn't for me. Too much emphasis on the outer beauty, not enough insight on the inner. I'm not sure you can really find a partner the same way you shop for books on Amazon. "Hey, this cover looks good, let me read the synopsis. Interesting story, good character... Oh wait! This is a horror novel, I don't like those. Ok, let's move on the next profile."
I enjoy learning about people, and so I still find myself drawn back to this site, reading profiles, remembering that each page represents just a small glimpse into the life of a real person. It's like people watching in a busy downtown, but deeper.
And who knows? Maybe I'll surprise myself and the perfect partner will find me someday.
I'm me. I'm a sum of my experiences, good and bad. All together they have made me who I am and I wouldn't trade away any of them - even the worst of them.
