This is why i’m looking to meet, not text all year…
The biggest reason I want to get to the meet and greet portion is to avoid all the hassle and confusion of texting. It’s hard to know what people mean when you’re communicating via text since it strips most emotion out of the medium, and while I can chat away without judgement, I find most women can’t (or won’t), so it’s a lot easier to just talk in person.Plus, we can learn a lot more about each other by spending time together, so let’s just meet and see if we have chemistry. 🙂
Someone asked me recently, “What does it take to keep your attention?”, and I’ve been pondering on it for a few days now. Here’s my answer:
My life with you in it has to be better than my life without you in it.
My life these days is good, and much more appreciated in light of my last relationship. I stay far away from bullshit, drama, and negative energy, so if you bring any of that to me, I’m happy to quickly cut ties and stay away.
I give my attention to the people and things that bring me joy, happiness, positive energy, peace, and comfort. So if you want my attention, bring those to me, and I’ll return the favor. 🙂
So my last ‘relationship’ was a complete clusterfuck, but I learned an awful lot of important lessons. By far the worst relationship i’ve ever had, possibly the worst experience with another person i’ve ever had, but I survived, and now I can relate to the song, “Fighter”.
The feeling of empowerment I gained from that is both amazing and heart-breaking; amazing because I never knew I was that emotionally strong, and heart-breaking because it’s opened my eyes to the pain and suffering other people have gone through to get to a similar place.
No matter what happens in life, you just have to keep moving forward, even if it’s just one little step at a time.
Yes, I like alliteration, almost as much as I like clear communication.
So what does, ‘Real, Raw, Ready’ mean to me? I’m glad you asked ;P
Real – I’m genuine. I don’t hide who I am, I don’t make excuses for mistakes i’ve made, and I don’t make promises I can’t keep. I say what I mean, mean what I say, and I do what I said I would do.
Raw – I tell it like it is, I don’t sugarcoat or pussyfoot, and what you see is what you get. I’d make a horrible spy! 😛
Ready – I live in a state of readiness. Ready golf, ready pool, ready to play, ready to move out, I stay ready for the next step. I’m also ready to meet new people, and start new adventures.
I’m not perfect, i’m not the greatest guy you’ll ever meet, but i’m me, and that’s all someone really wants.
