Dating is going
When the stress lessened, I stopped paying attention to myself and started paying attention to my date.
On one occasion when things were going very poorly, instead of stressing out, I told my date I didn’t think we were a great match but that we could still have fun over dinner.
It’s about sitting in front of the TV or playing video games.
I’ll be home, unshowered, dealing with the endless cycle of kids.
As we prepare for our adventures, we lather on sunscreen, trying to prevent the streams of wear and tear on our faces from turning into rivers. But spending twelve hours a day, five days a week with three active kids was not something I was ready for. Practice piano, karate and anything else dad says to do.
This freedom allowed me to finally be honest with myself about what I was looking for.
Or more aptly put, be open for what might discover us. It’s the time we let life lead us instead of forcing the issue. If you’re not familiar with this term, it’s really quite simple.
We don a hat and the coolest pair of sunglasses we can afford, throw every possible accessory we might need into the trunk of our car, and head out to discover what we can discover. I knew I would need some structure, so I formulated a plan in the form of Daddy Day Camp.
I stopped defending the poor qualities my dates had and started moving on.
Dating in numbers allowed me to make decisions based on what I desired, not based on how lonely I was at that time.
