Kizz recently posted about blogging naked.
I thought that would get your attention. I think I do too, to an extent. There are several topics that I don’t talk about here. Or that i didn’t talk about over at The Circus…because I knew my audience. And this isn’t the forum for certain things that belong to me. But for the most part, you get all of me. You get my naked blog, full frontal exposure to my life…
In that vein, I’d like to tell you a secret.
I’ve been online dating for the entire month of January. I signed up at eHarmony when they had their Talk Free Weekend over that four day break the first of the month. I charged the one month fee to the credit card with the teensiest bit of credit left on it and thought What The Hell.
I was so determined that this year, this fresh start would be my year to Try New Things, that I just jumped in with both feet. I also, thanks to Abbylicious in NYC, looked into OKCupid dot com which is free…
I have a date tomorrow night. With a man from the eHarm site. I will let you know how this goes…it’ll be my first date, but I’ve been emailing with several other guys. One in particular I feel a strong connection with. Be it romantic, or perhaps I’ve found a new member of the tribe, I don’t know. And I don’t care, particularly. I’m remaining open and honest and just kind of freewheeling about this journey…
I confessed all to my girlfriends last night, to Chris and Cindy at breakfast yesterday. I’ve kept this close to me for the month because I needed to work through my own personal stigma about internet dating. I think I’ve done that, and then Kizz got all Chuck Norris Brave and posted hers and I thought, well…you jump, I jump.
At the very least, I am gleening material. HAND OVER FIST I’m getting material. For the next Stand Up? For the writing project? for something. And that is never a bad day. I’ll share some of that along the way here…Oh boy. Another plus is thru one of these sites I was “matched” with a guy from high school. Not my grade, several years older than me. We’re facebook friends, and sometimes comment on each others pages, but that’s it. We got matched and I sent him an email saying hi, and how was his luck on this site and we’ve been emailing ever since. Long, hysterical, full blown confessional emails. I will tell you now, that for certain, I have made a new friend and that is a success story in itself.
Weekend Recap: COLTS WIN COLTS WIN COLTS WIN COLTS WIN!!! We’re going to the Superbowl BABY!!!!!!
Rehearsal was a clusterfucktrainwreck on Sunday. It was our first day off book. The issues that I was concerned about earlier? Seem to have lessened and perhaps some bonding has begun. But my scene partner, my “husband” man. He’s got himself so mired down in the negative, self fullfilling prophecy that it’s just miserable to watch. I’m very aware that everyone works at their own pace. That it’s a process and a journey and we’ll get there…it’s a little trying though.
I have a ton of stuff to do and I didn’t sleep well last night so I’m lagging behind. I just wanted to write today, and tell you that there’s new Ridiculous things happening. That it’s a lot of fun. If you’re thinking about trying this? I say do it. Just jump in. And look at it just for what it is. A filtering system, flushing out this one and that one and perhaps landing on one that is just right…we’ll see, yes?
That’s it for naked blogging. I’m putting pants on now.
