I've been contemplating the fate of this blog. My birthday was last week, which technically makes me ineligible to be 31derful any longer. I haven't come up with anything good for 32 yet. The only thing I can think of is 32-lowitzski, which is the name of the short stop for the Colorado Rockies. It doesn't have quite the same ring. Any ideas?
I've enjoyed sharing my dating stories with you and I wish I could tell you that they've ceased. The update on Indiana is that we dated for almost four months, but I learned that you don't really know someone until you see how he faces and deals with conflict. His passive aggressive/game-playing style differs significantly from my own. I couldn't navigate through his sarcasm and it really turned me off. So, that is over and I think I might just take a break from dating for awhile. It doesn't seem worth it right now. Someone always gets hurt. I don't want to be the hurt-ee or the hurt-er. No one does, right?
Oh, remember Colt? The one who joined me for a business meeting that really seemed more like a date? Well, I recently found out that not only does he have a girlfriend, but actually she is his FIANCE. What a dog. Sheesh.
So, this is my intention for the universe, God, and everyone to hear. I would like nothing more in life than to find my life partner. I'd like to find the one who gives me butterflies, a sense of security, shares my values, playfully teases me, likes to have fun, is athletic, and has his act together. I also need to take time to heal from a year that provided amusing dates, but was also a tumultuous emotional roller coaster. That might be slightly redundant (tumultuous and emotional), but I think it's apropos anyhow.
Thank you very much for reading, commenting, and supporting me. I hope you enjoyed it. Please wish me luck in my future endeavors. I'll leave you with a paraphrase of the final written words of Christopher McCandless, the college-aged kid who decided to shun society and isolate himself in Alaska (as told via the book or movie Into the Wild)...."True happiness is only achieved when shared with others." I agree wholeheartedly. May we all find that person with whom we may share that genuine happiness.
