I am a woman just trying to navigate the bumpy road of relationships and dating while keeping my wits about me. I once went on an excursion in Guatemala on dirt roads, it had been raining and the new road had dried in the formation of all the bumps and tracks from the vehicles that had passed through days before. This created a horribly unpleasant drive, but the end destination was totally worth all the discomfort along the way. That’s dating. I’ve been through that road and have found tips that may help you. I also know the importance of having your story heard, and I want to hear what you’ve been through.

  1. Warm and beautiful words! I liked them very much šŸ˜‰ I will be glad to have some conversations with you about what you’re trying to figure out! Many things are similar to me šŸ˜‰

      • for sure šŸ˜‰ by the way I write a novel and your person interested me a lot: one of my heroes is so similar to you! i’ll follow you in twitter and will keep connection with you in future! can’t wait to read smth new from you šŸ˜‰

  2. It took me a long time to like myself (in my teens), then I went looking for myself (in my twenties. where I dated a whole lot and discovered I didn’t like myself as much as I thought. This made dating difficult), then it took me an even longer time to figure out what to do once I ‘found’ myself (in my thirties. At this point a giant man found me who liked the ‘me’ I didn’t), when I started figuring it out my kids made me forget what I’d found out (in my forties) and now I’m 50. I’ve discovered I was here all along but I’d been disguised as a frustrated woman. I’ve since learned to ease up just a bit and smile a hell of a lot more.
    I love your ‘About’ analogy. Dating is a bumpy ride for sure, but once you find the right vehicle the discombobulating bumps suddenly begin to lift your stomach and make you laugh.

      • Hey single gal,
        Thanks ever so much for kind compliment. We gals – no matter the current relationship we’re navigating, gotta stick together, because many of us weren’t blessed with a ‘man-compass’ and lose direction too easily..
        I wish you well in your adventures and I have a more than strong feeling your driving in the right direction šŸ™‚

  5. My story: 1 1/2 years out of high school at college, I met a woman on a blind date (never done that before!) but thought it wise non-the-less because she shaded my last name. Two years later in 1971 we married – an arrangement that continues now 43 years later. Half way down the line we converted from Protestantism to Mormonism to find what we had in the beginning. Navigating the uneven road with two holding the reins on the buckboard makes the trip so much more worth it for both of us.
