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?

Well, hello there!

Who says sadness can’t inspire you? After breaking up with a really amazing boy of two years, I got inspired to write again one sleepless night. What turned into an idea snowballed into something great. I’ve always been a writer. In fact, I liked words so much I chose English as my major in college, much to the chagrin of my parents who have always favored science, engineering, math and business over anything analytical. I never really knew what to write about and if people would read it. One thing is for sure, everyone loves a great story…especially if it’s something they can relate to? Why not write about my dating experience, especially since the story of how we met is quite funny.

I finally thought about something I could really write about and something others would want to read. Heartbreak is everywhere – it’s in the songs we hear, the books we read, the movies we see, the friends and family we love…it’s everywhere and that’s what inspired me to write and hopefully, something you’ll want to read.

This story is just as much mine as it is yours. I don’t date much so I’m going to need some of your help writing them. So, if you want to share, I urge you to get in touch with me. I just set up a Facebook page, a dating profile strictly for stories and an email address.

If you are a book agent, a publisher or know how I can turn this idea into a real book, please get in touch ASAP!

I promise to change names to protect your anonymity. I hope you’ll join me.

xoxo.
