Why I'm here....
Why I'm here....
The first post in this blog - the best topic I can think to write on is why I'm here.
I'm in my mid-thirties and in the middle of a divorce. The split was a mutual decision on both our parts. Neither of us were happy and realized that we were holding each other back and that's no way to go through life.
I've managed to re-align my life and the extra "freedom" has given me the ability to pursue my own interests and activities which has been very nice. I've been able to reconnect with pieces of my life that were back burnered due to the relationship and generally been able to exist for myself.
One thing I have found however, is that at this stage in my life - it's difficult to meet people. The opportunities just aren't as prevalent. Not to mention I don't have a lot of free time to take up new activities that might lead to new opportunities to meet people. I suppose I could try and get a phone number while grabbing my morning coffee or at the grocery store, but absent some greater conversation that seems a bit stalkerish to me.
Hence the dating site.
This particular one? Well, sex of course. Not necessarily that I want to bang everyone I meet but I'd at least like to make friends with people who don't mind talking about sex. One of the problems with my previous relationship is that sex was something done in the dark and never discussed. That's just not right - it's a natural, healthy part of any relationship and at least here, I expect that most of the people I meet aren't going to be offended if it comes up in conversation. (At least I would hope not.)
So we'll see how this goes!
