I feel so disconnected when it comes to dating. Other people seem to really enjoy it, but I actually don’t like it. I feel like I have to be someone I’m not when I meet someone new. It also takes a little while for me to warm up to someone. There are very few people I meet where I feel comfortable right away. I dunno, I’m cautious.
I think this cautiousness turns people off or I freak myself out when someone I like likes me back. I’m used to the attraction being not mutual. I also tend to say things wrong or they’re taken the wrong way so people will tell me I need therapy, I’m crazy or just plain rude. I’ve been trying to get better at this but I keep saying or even texting the wrong thing at the wrong time.
Maybe I’m not ready to get back into the dating scene. I guess because It was so easy in my last relationship, I’m expecting the same. I really don’t know. I hate forcing myself to do this.
I hope th to write more here soon. It’s a good place to vent my frustrations while I get writing practice for my book.
I’m also trying to think of a catchier title. Flirting with Disaster works I’m not sure if the rest of it does. Any ideas?
