Dating Thoughts

Tinder, Tinder on my phone, who's the one I should take home?

Finding a decent date is like going to Ross, you have to search through an enormous amount of merchandise until you find something you actually like. You better try it or you will go home and find out that is just not for you!

After divorce you will always be wondering if you will ever love someone again, or be happy, or if you ever will feel whole again. You feel lonely, you are not necessarily missing that person, is more of missing the company, the affection. That is when you have the need to go on the hunt for someone!

If you are anything like me, you were probably married for a long time and your last first date was at least a decade ago. The same way iPhones did not exist back when you were single for the last time, dating apps were very rare and dating was about making eye contact and daring to talk to the one that peaked your interest wherever you went.

Well, if you didn't know by now, let me just tell you, is crazy out there! I have been doing my research, better said I've been dating around and I have my fair share of experiences, the good, the bad and the ugly.

Let me just say, sometimes I will just browse profiles to have fun! Is amazing the stuff you find. You just want to go out on a date to prove that kind of people truly exist. And since I am in Florida I will just say this, if I see one more dead fish picture I will die! And please don't get me started with the Machu Picchu pictures, is almost like Tinder has a travel photo booth!

I will never forget my first Tinder date, a nice french guy that lived in Texas and was just visiting, shame, he was fun, nice and a gentleman. It's his fault I trusted Tinder! After him, I met different kinds of guys, and I must say I found out I have a soft spot for Kilts! Made me almost wish I was a man so I could wear one!

I moved from Tinder to Bumble, and from Bumble to Match and back over and over again. I am just dizzy! I managed to meet some great guys, don't get me wrong. I just think is not my time, or maybe what or who I want is not for me, at least not today. I refuse to lose hope! I know he is out there somewhere, or maybe I will just go overseas on the look for the one that got away! Who knows! In the mean time I will keep walking the aisles of Ross, TJ Max and Marshall's to find that perfect piece that compliments my style.


Thru my divorce I discovered I am a teacher, a writer and a loving mother.  I want my story to inspire you and fill you up with hope so you too can get to the other side of the tunnel.
