I’ve had several boyfriends. And I’ll be honest, they’ve all been different shades of douche bags – but we won’t linger on that. I think my problem is that I look in all the wrong places. High school, tutoring, student work, work, online. Oh, yeah. I so did the online (but he wasn’t really my boyfriend, he just thought he was, he was wrong).
Not only did I do the “online dating” thing. But I did Christian Mingle.
Yeah… I know. I’m disappointed in myself too. My mother suggested it. And some of my friends had accounts as well. And due to some of my moral beliefs, it seemed to make sense to find someone likeminded.
I am now convinced that there is no one likeminded for me. Or maybe they just aren’t on Christian Mingle. Christian Mingle guys are…. weird.
Yeah, I know. It doesn’t make sense. But I got lonely and stupid.
First – you have to pay a ridiculous amount of money to even view emails that people send you! So if this is God’s plan for my life- why do I have to pay a monthly fee to communicate with people??????
Second – guys on Christian Mingle are 2 types of extreme. Either SUPER Conservative (to the point where you have to be a stay at home mom and you have to homeschool because clearly public school is of the devil) or they are SUPER not Conservative (like they say they love God more than anything and their profile pic is of them clubbing with a Bud in their hand, grinding on girls).
Third – not that either of these things matter… Because it seems like no one really wants to talk to me. And that’s fine. Because I would probably just make fun of them.
And as much as I would love to find that perfect guy, who my parents love and respect and he shares exactly the same belief system as me (accepting my religious and non-religious views on life ((mostly the ‘non’ if we are gonna get technical))) and be smart and funny and not a douche bag – I don’t think I’m gonna find him online.
I don’t think I’m gonna find him at all. Who knows if I’ll be willing to cut corners later in life?
Right now I’d just settle for someone who can look at me and listen without staring at my chest or his watch every 5 seconds.
