I love honesty. I love courage. I want to have both.
I have decided to start a new thing on here called Love Stuff. I am going to talk about love and spirit and beauty because truthfully, that’s what makes life worth living and yet we spend so little time talking about it.
I signed up to RSVP.com.au on Thursday. My final divorce papers came through on Friday. I’m still heartbroken, as much as I pretend not to be, and yet I’m hopeful. I want to find love and have babies and be a wonderful mother, partner, friend and community member. I know I have too much passion (or maybe just enough for the right person?). I know I’m a handful. I know I’m maybe a bit different.
RSVP.com.au is brilliant. It lets you filter out all the people that you will have fundamental idealogical differences with. It’s like online shopping – you get to refine search terms. I’ve had some shockers with shopping and I expect that online dating will be the same. So far, I have exchanged emails and text messages with a couple of people; most of whom seem excellent (notwithstanding the guy who sent me a picture of his dick. WHAT. WHY?!).
Anyway, it’s eye opening. I feel like I have options. There’s the Lieutenant Colonel, the hilarious Irishman, the charming Francophile. It’s fun but it’s still email fantasy land.
I will let you know how it goes and I’m probably going to ramble on a bit about love in the future.
Have you had any luck with online dating? Got any advice?
