Several times in the past few months, I’ve poked my head into the online dating world, started conversations with men, and then dropped back out.
It was never my intention to end those conversations. Days would pass and I’d be thinking, I should really reply to so-and so. And then the next thing you know it was 4 or 5 or 7 days later and… I’d just blow it off. It seemed too late.
I’m pretty disgusted with myself because I know how frustrating it is to have someone disappear mid-conversation. Super-frustrating. And the funny thing is, all of the guys in question seemed like potentially decent guys. I had no reason to not continue/not go out with any of them. Other than my being overwhelmed and completely ambivalent.
No excuses. I’ve been an asshole. I should probably get the energy together to send them all apologies. Just because it’s the right thing to do. More importantly, I really need to close out ALL of my online dating accounts if I’m not going to follow through and go out on dates. I don’t want to be one of those people.
