A Better Day & Online Dating Update

I got lucky with this one, I didn’t even see the fly balancing at the end when I took it!

Today has been much better so far. This morning I got back on my usual routine including going to the gym in the morning. After that I went into the woods to get some new photos which I’ve attached throughout this post. Then I went shopping; I decided that I’m not going to let the uncertainty about my future living situation derail my plans and I bought the supplies for a second shelf to continue working on my bedroom. If I do have to move, I’ll just take it all with me. I also finally got a larger planter for my little succulent plant and it looks much happier in the bigger space. I still wasted a couple of hours playing games but if I didn’t have some down time I would go insane.

Online dating is not going well at all. I’ve only matched with 4 women despite playing the narcissistic swipe-game for the past week and all 4 of them unmatched with me as soon as I sent a “hello” message. I don’t take it personally; I get hit on by married women all day at work so I know I’m at least somewhat desirable. I’m also being a lot more honest with my selections… I could say “picky” but picky just means I’m not desperate anymore. I could probably match with a disgusting overweight alcoholic with 6 kids if I really wanted to but I’m not at that place in my life anymore!

That’s really it for today. I appreciate all of the comments yesterday, I was really feeling down and today I feel much better thanks to all of your insight. I’m trying to come up with an actual topic to write about tomorrow but we’ll see what happens.

I edited this one in post a bit to make the kayak stand out. It’s another long exposure shot… I like the green trail but I’m not a fan of the blurry paddle.

  1. I’m sorry that you haven’t been having luck in the online dating world. Dating can be exhausting! And definitely don’t settle for someone who doesn’t share the same ideals and values at you. I couldn’t help but laugh at the alcoholic [single] mom with 6 kids (probably all of the kids are from different fathers). Not hating on these people, but it did make me chuckle.

      1. Sadly I know someone who’s sister has 2 kids from 2 fathers, and one of them has 5 half siblings all from different fathers. The other kid has 2 half siblings from another father. I’m pretty sure her sister is single.

      2. I wish you the best of luck in your journey. 🙏🏻💕 I feel like online dating is the way things are headed but there’s always conventional dating to fall back on if all else fails (parties, churches, clubs etc.).
