This coming Wednesday, one of my worst fears is coming to fruition. I am being taken out by my brother so he can introduce me to a man. Blerg.
I know I write a lot of poetry about meeting someone, but in reality, meeting someone actually fills me full of dread. Especially anyone who would hang out with my brother on purpose. But I am trying not to say no to the things the universe throws my way, seeing as though my brother has been trying to set me up with this guy for months now.
So, how do you actually do these things? Getting “back on the horse.”
I was really never on the horse to begin with. Being with GoatDragon since high school, I have NEVER been on a real date. I think we may have gone out to dinner a few times, but that was after we were already seeing each other. So, I don’t count them. I do not count this as a date either. But for the purposes of this post, lets just call it one.
I guess this is just part of the journey… question mark. Maybe this will be another life lemon, life lesson. Maybe this will be fun. Maybe this will make me want to immediately go out and buy fifty cats and never try dating again and grow old with my cats and buy shares in a sex toy company.
How do you know if you are actually ready to date after being in a long term relationship? Some people seem to just be able to dive straight back in there. I was only out 2 weeks and GD had another woman living in the house… but she was a side bitch he’d had from during our “marriage.” So, I guess some peeps are always ready. But I… I do not feel “ready.” And I don’t think I ever actually will feel ready.
Stay tuned for updates from the date from hell in a future episode of “Fuck the Lemonade” from your friendly neighborhood Lemons.
