The MisAdventure – Online Dating

Have you ever kissed a frog?

No seriously. Have you?

Well, I almost did.

I’ve never wanted to online date – but in the middle of the night, in a semi-delusional state, I thought it might be an interesting idea as an adventure.

Something about personal growth and all that stuff.

Talk about delusional.

In my brief 48 hour stint of online dating, I got dumped before we even met.

To make a long story short, in my brief 48 hour stint of online dating, I got dumped by my date before we even met – for a very specific reason.

It’s because of a certain skill I developed in one of my previous monthly adventures – Remote Viewing – so maybe I should have seen this one coming.

But talk about an EPIC FAIL.

I didn’t even TRY to go out on a date with any one of the men who sent me an email. I was so overwhelmed by the number of messages, I just simply shut down my profile and called it a day.

Out of all the adventures I’ve been on – this is the only one where I chickened out.

And I have all sorts of great excuses.

I really do.

But I guess when it comes right down to it, I’m just not interested in meeting someone online.

I want something more organic.

I want to meet the man doing something I like, something I’m involved in. I want to get a feel for him, get to know him as a human being – and see if we can even be friends.

After all, I intend on marrying or living-in-sin with a man who is my best friend, my twin soul, the yang to my yin.

Nothing else will do for me.

So why should you consider online dating even though I won’t?

Now, just because I’m a dramatic failure at online dating doesn’t mean that it’s a bad thing for the rest of the world. Actually, it’s probably a  great thing for people who are shy and don’t know how to meet that special someone. In essence, I guess you could consider it to be similar in design to smorgasbord – so many different types of delicious foods to sample.

OH….I guess I should mention something about the guy who dumped me because of my ‘specialized talent.’ Just so you know…he was more than excited to meet me, literally chomping at the bit. After speaking for hours, our lengthy conversation ended with a brief mention of remote viewing. Early the following morning, I received a PFO letter from him, indicating he was no longer interested because of my specialized ‘talent’. As shocking as it was, I do consider myself rather fortunate because a man who could do something like this out of ignorance would make most people, with my particular skill, think he has something to hide.
