LisaQ from 20/40 recently mentioned in the comments (it came up in relation to my telling Mr. Potential about it) that she told a man she’d met online about her blog, before they met. He checked it out and was very encouraging and thoughtful and perhaps even more excited about meeting her after reading her blog. And his receptiveness made her more interested in him.
I’m about to embark on another frenzied round of online dating. The first date will be in a few days and then I’ll have many more in the weeks to come. I’m just now screening a bunch of new candidates (more on that later). And I’ve been rethinking my timeline as to when might be the appropriate time to tell guys about this blog.
My situation is pretty different from LisaQ’s as her blog is very different from mine. She isn’t really dishing the dirt on her own personal life, at least not constantly. Whereas that’s pretty much all I write about here.
I fear that once I tell someone about the blog his behavior toward me will be affected by it. Kind of the way someone acts differently when they know a camera is filming their every move.
