Okay, so for about 3 years now, I've had profiles on both POF and OkCupid (dating sites). I don't really pay much attention to them, every once in a while, I'll respond to a message. But that is far and few in between because now a days, a message consists of either "hey"' "ur hot lol", "hey cutie wazzup how u doin" and after reading them, I just want to b*tch slap them all with a dictionary. Seriously, learn proper grammar and spelling, you look retarded. Smartness is attractive, purpose stupidity is not. Anyway, dating is one of the reasons I feel like I should've been born a long time ago. I'm tired of guys now a days. All they want is either to get you in bed, to get a favor from you, get money from you, or something equally lame. Patience doesn't happen anymore. On first dates instead of trying to get to know you over a nice wine and dine dinner, they are in a movie theater with you, trying to get a hand down your shirt. What are we, 15 again? Sometimes I think it must be too much to ask, to be found by someone who is respectable. Someone who has a job, and a plan for their lives. And a car, and a place to live. That doesn't all seem so impossible does it? Apparently it is because I have yet to date anyone who has those things. Any of those things actually. I'm tired of meeting someone that is trying to hold your hand and snuggle with you after 5 minutes of knowing you, and trying to kiss you after 10. Whatever happened to picking a girl up and taking her on a date, sitting there, talking and getting to know each other? Where sex definitely wasnt expected from you on the first date. I guess I'm holding onto a fairy tale, because I'm fairly certain nothing like that exists anymore. And if it does, it's staying as far away from me as possible. I guess I should change my mindset, because if not, I'll probably end up single for the rest of my life.
On another note, I snuck a peek at the scale this morning, and it's back to where I was when I started in 2011. Not great by any means, but I feel pretty good about that. 36 more pounds to go until I reach 184, which is where I was at the beginning of 2012 before I gave up and gained 53 pounds back. Fingers crossed that I get there soon, because I feel like that is when the real journey will begin. The gym was hard today though, my legs were super sore from yesterday's leg strength training, so they kept wanting to give out on me while I was doing the elliptical. I was tired, and also felt pretty sick. Oh, and top all that off with allergies. But, soreness and complaints or not, I did my entire workout. I might not have pushed as hard as normal, but I still did 40 minutes of cardio and did my strength training.
I guess I should get off of here and go shower and get dressed and eat dinner. One of my best friends' boyfriend has a movie screening tonight that I am going to. It's a Star Wars inspired film that they made for one of their classes. Pretty excited to see it. Hope everyone is having a good week.
