Slight Turn for the Wrong


Well, I should probably dust myself off and jump off the tired "Taken" shelf back onto the meat market's floor. In other words, I am giving this whole dating thing a try.... Oh Lord have mercy...

It's not like being in a long-distance quasi-relationship with Mr J ever cramped my style. But with him, I just sort of forgot about the male species. I let the hot men pass me by, content in the fact that I had what I wanted. I had Mr J to lust after. But I may not have realized (or did not want to believe) that it might have been troublesome from the start that I was pretty content in pining for the man hundreds of miles away and building a glass castle in the sky that finally came crumbling down.

And now that's I've dusted off the glass shards off my floor and the bruises have more-or-less healed, I feel like I am opening my eyes again and looking around. Could it be early spring in the air rubbing some of its post-Valentine's Day magic on me? Not yet... it is still much too cold out. It is something within me that is awakening. I have no freaking clue what it is but it feels very exciting and vaguely familiar.

Like that time when I actually considered myself single and acted upon my urges to go hit on hot guys. Don't get me wrong, I am looking for romance and unicorns, but if a hot dude comes around, I will be just as glad to do a little one-on-one tongue wrestling.

The last time I kissed a guy besides J... was a year and a half-ago... I think it's time.

Yeah?

Yeah.

i've been following your blog and i'm in the same situation you have when it comes to Mr. J, had a long distance relationship for almost 3 yrs until last month, :( it's so hard to move on when you're still in love and not ready to move on (or rather i don't want to move on) i still have hopes that things will change but this waiting game is getting pretty played out and i'm so sick and done with it, but yes girl date on and enjoy, it's only now that i'm trying to see that light at the end of the tunnel and hoping to getting back to being me without him.... so enjoy and keep me posted... these men don't have a clue when they have a great strong woman by their side but it's all about YOU and doing YOU now... sheeeesh i should seriously start practicing what i damn preach! lol good luck and cheers! :)
