As I’ve mentioned several times before, I’m one of those crazy Twitterers you keep hearing so much about (it does seem like you can’t turn on the TV without hearing someone say Twitter). On several occasions I’ve mentioned to my friends on twitter that I had a date later in the day. Each time, without fail, I received a flurry of responses ranging from, “Good luck” and “Have fun” to “Ugh, I hate dating” and “Better you than me”.
It actually would’ve made an interesting experiment, if I’d thought about it in advance. How do people react to the subject of dating? I don’t know what the actual numbers are, but I do know that a fair share of people really loathe dating.
Out here on the blog, I know that I’m not always a cheerleader for dating. I try to keep things balanced and in perspective, but I know that sometimes I fail. The truth is that sometimes it’s hard to head back out there over and over and over and keep on trying even though I haven’t been having much luck lately. But I do it anyway.
I do it because, quite frankly, the alternatives are just intolerable to contemplate.
