This past weekend, I helped my roommate put together her profile on Match.com. She has been inspired by the number of dates I have been going on since I arrived here in California. My roomie asked me to write her profile for her in exchange for a bodywork session. Being that I enjoy writing, I took her up on her suggested barter arrangement. It took us a couple of hours to complete her online profile.
I couldn’t agree more. Truthfully, I am burnt out on dating, and I have only been doing it for six weeks. Dating takes a tremendous amount of emotional and mental energy. And dating women is even more complicated. Women are emotionally complex, and I spend entirely too much time trying to figure them out. Now I understand why my older son often says “I don’t get women!”
Neither do I, and I am a woman! Dating isn’t for wimps. If you are going to do it right, it takes a tremendous amount of investment in time and people. I would even say you have to invest in yourself. Last night I started to ask myself if I am truly up for the challenge.
I was supposed to go on a hike this Saturday with a new woman, and then she emailed me to tell me that a hike is too time intensive for a first meeting. Evidently, she had a few experiences where she picked some bad matches, and she wanted to meet for coffee in the event we were not matched. She needed a quick exit strategy.
When I find myself rolling my eyes at someone who is unable to invest 1-2 hours of hiking to get to know someone, I know it’s time for me to take a break. There was really nothing inherently wrong with what she was asking for. I simply don’t have the energy to contend with everyone’s quirks.
