I dove in.

So I did it.

I took the plunge into online dating.

I have a few coworkers that do the online dating thing, so I thought I’d try it. They don’t have any success stories, but they do have stories that I can’t believe are true and figured they would provide me with TONS to blog and gossip about. Honestly Readers, people ARE crazy.

Within two days of signing up, I think every single man on the site had sent me a message. <sigh>

After a few days of reading and watching what people had to say, I went out on a limb, and went out. It wasn’t the experience I had hoped for, so immediately felt defeated. Yep. After just one date.

I got discouraged about what I was finding. It just wasn’t what I was looking for. Perhaps I was on the wrong site? In hoping that was all it was, I signed up for another site. Again, it didn’t take long before my inbox was full.

The discouragement continued, until a coworker said “don’t be afraid of what you’ll find”.

With that, I logged back on, not afraid of what I would find. And you know what I found? A guy. A guy that was my type. A guy that held descent conversation. A guy that, if given enough of a chance, could rock my world.

We hung out last night, and I had an amazing time. He’s smart, tells great stories, and allows me to be me. There is still so much for me to learn about him, but I’m in no rush.

He knows nothing about NASCAR, so I think maybe I’ve been given a challenge. Perhaps Kyle Busch will have a new fan before the end of the season. Although he did tell me he wouldn’t put a #18 on his truck.  :-(    We’ll see if we can change that too.

Enough from me. I hope everyone has a great weekend. I think I’ll be busy getting to know a new certain someone.
