Ah, re-entering the dating scene at a snail’s pace after a five year hiatus. Did not think this day would even exist. I thought I was done with dating, but after my engagement dissolved 9 months ago, well . . . I refuse to let my ex-fiancé get the best of me. I still wish him no ill will and still care for him, but I cannot let my life languish during the waning years of my prime.
Last month, I went on a date with a guy friend of mine who martyred himself for the cause “Of getting back in the saddle.”–Actually, he volunteered and begged for the chance to go on a formal date with me. I am not going to lie, I was very apprehensive about the whole thing because I knew it would irrevocably change the dynamic of our relationship. It ended up being one of the best nights I had in a very long time. I laughed so hard I cramped! I just doesn’t get any better than that! Although, I love him dearly, I do not feel he is my future spouse. I am very certain of this.
