In our small Massachusetts town, and our tiny college campus, it seemed silly not to widen your pool if you could, whether you were looking for a long-term relationship or a booty call.
Post-graduation, when people scattered to new, far-flung cities, dating online became an alluring way to narrow down the options. It lets you be immediately choosy in a way you maybe wouldn’t be in real life.
These days what we think is the right thing to do is wrong and everything is about power plays, down playing and denying.
I was sitting there sipping my beer wondering what I was supposed to say to these statements after only knowing this guy for a total of maybe 5 hours of my life.
I thanked him for his honesty and thanked him for the two dates.
It’s a breath of fresh air to meet others that I wouldn’t have met if I wasn’t on-line.
Like most of your readers, I am a strong, independent woman who likes the alpha male persona and am working on many of the things that strong, successful, independent women tend to need assistance with when dating.
