August Rushed: I’m Not Ready For Online Dating


Hey Mommies!

Hey SmF Fam!! I’m up this morning writing to you all after laying my head on my pillow at four am this morning. That’s nuts, I know. But I would not have traded one minute of sleep for what was transpiring last night.

Alright, maybe the last 30 minutes or so, because we were clowning, but for the most part, my sisters and I were sowing words of wisdom and correction and inspiring someone we loved, to just do better.

I plan to keep this post short this morning as I struggle to keep my eyes open. It’s just not one of those days that coffee can’t fix. My neck is all tensed up. I’m a little delirious and need a nap, but I’m not sure when I’ll be able to get that in, seeing that I have a jam-packed day, today. Hmm…maybe I do need to start the Keurig. Okay ladies, give me 10 minutes.

I needed more like 20 minutes to get myself together, but I’m now sipping on a cup of fogchaser, heavy French vanilla cream with two generous scoops of sugar, and I’m feeling preeeetty alert right now.

Soooo about last week’s post “CoInCiDeNtAlLy YoU!” , yea…uhm…that will be a NO. There were quite a few text messages exchanged yesterday, and he was saying waaaay to much, waaaay too fast, and threw up waaaay too many red flags. Just as I suspected, there was no way, I could move forward with this guy.

Ahh man, and I knew that when he chased me down in CVS and came off waaay to forward then. It was nice to have a man run me down just to tell me how beautiful I was, but I guess I just got caught up in the moment AND the compliment. I really have to work on that.

My girls are trying to get me on the Match. I just can’t get myself to do it…yet…maybe…I think?!? Listen, I know there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with online match making and dating.

There are a ton of single men and women, who don’t have the time to go out to places to meet other singles, and they have had some success on the net. In fact, I personally know several people who have found real love AND have gone as far as to get married. Yes, married!

But, and that’s a strong but, I reeeally don’t think I have the time or the nerve, if I’m going to keep it 100 (‘keep it 100’, urban slang for keep it real, tell the truth). Granted, there are some F-I-N-E, eligible bachelors on there, because I’ve seen the proof. Yes Lawd, I’ve seen it with my own eyes.

But here’s “my” problem. For one, I am inundated with all things “online” now. To me, it’s just like any other social network that you have to monitor, socialize on and in my case do business, i.e. my Facebook  ( LIKE me :) ) and Twitter (FOLLOW me :) ).

For two, people are Crazy and they do very Crazy things, like make fake profiles or lie on their bios or put up 10 year old, 50 lb later pictures of themselves or intend to cheat or look to prey on women, and I’m sure the list goes on.

We can also say the same thing about the women, for all my fellas that support #SiNgLeMoMmYFiLeS (see we’re not biased).  So with that being said, I don’t know how comfortable I am with meeting and getting to know someone over the World Wide Web, I just don’t.

On the other hand, I know that being fearful is never an option and it definitely doesn’t get you far in life, at all. So if I’m interested in meeting someone (still on the fence about it) and if it doesn’t necessarily happen in a coffee shop over a mocha cappuccino or in a book store down the self-help isle, or in a whole foods store in the produce section, like I would hope, then I might just have to give good ole’ a triz-na-eee, ya’ heard me! *in my Lil’ Scrappy voice*

Yes, I’ve tuned in to L&HHATL. It’s ALL over the social networks on Mondays, what do you expect? Heeeey! I haven’t watched 16 and Pregnant this past season, let me have one guilty pleasure please.

Ladies let’s keep in touch! Click on the links to FOLLOW me, @snglemommyfiles on twitter and LIKE SiNgLe MoMmY FiLeS on Facebook!

Alright, I’ll see you all next week. Be sure to check out other posts on the blog, they’re pretty good (so I’ve been told) and refer a friend or two or ten, until then my friends…
