Let’s face it, not all of us are looking to get married and carried away with an explosion of emotions with the first person we meet. Some of us just like to take our time and live a little before committing ourselves for the rest of our lives. I have always wanted to date around before settling down, but I had one particular issue with the whole thing – I just didn’t know how to date! I was an introvert and a coward when it came to the matters of the heart, which totally threatened to ruin my huge, all-important dating plan for the future.
Ever since I was a kid, I have been fascinated with the idea of dating – going out, meeting people, talking to them about everything under the sun, and potentially building a solid foundation for something real one day. The general idea of it all sounded amazing, and I couldn’t wait until I was old enough to venture out and mingle! You see, my parents got a divorce when I was eight years old, and one of the first memories I have is of my parents arguing like there’s no tomorrow. When they finally decided they had had enough, they were both worn out and absolutely sick of the idea of marriage. They married when they were really young and I knew that I wasn’t going to end up like them, whatever it took. After their divorce was finalized, both my mom and my dad started mingling and going on dates, and that was actually the first time I had ever seen them genuinely happy! You can imagine what sort of an impact something like that has on a kid. Thus, my obsession with dating started. One of the first promises I’d made to myself was that I was not going to settle – I had a clear vision of myself carefully choosing a girl that would fit me like a glove. Having heated arguments with a hypothetical wife in front of out hypothetical children was simply not an option. But something happened; something that messed up my genius plan.
When the proper time for dating came and I realized that I liked a girl from my high school, I completely shut down. I chickened out, and I never asked her on a date. As time passed, my problem got worse and I ended up not going to my senior prom at all. For whatever reason, the mere gesture of expressing my feelings towards someone I liked scared the living daylight out of me. I knew I wasn’t going to let that horrid timidness dictate my love life in college, but I didn’t know how to fix it. I needed real help, but I had no clue where to find it. And then I learned about Dating Online Central, a site packed with people who wanted to share their experiences and lessons so they could help someone clueless like me. As I was too shy and introverted for classic dating from the get go, I knew that if I was ever going to have a healthy relationship, I needed to get all the help available before actually meeting girls with whom I could develop something in the future. Thus, Dating Online Central became my online love therapist.
I was more than relieved to find out that I was not the only one who was intimidated by dating. Even more so, there were people in this dating community who were even more clueless than me when it came to romancing a living, breathing human being. Both males and females were swarming this blog site in the hopes of finding dating advice, tips, and someone who could help them deal with the stress that is dating.
I’m very pleased to say that I don’t have the same issues in the love department anyone. I still haven’t found the right person, but I’m young. I have no doubt that when I do finally meet The One, it will be thanks to Dating Online Central. In the meantime, I’m enjoying my dating era to the fullest!
