|Join me for a new series on my blog entitled "Dear Date..." |
where I share my insights and anecdotes into the exciting and often frustrating world of dating.
I've tried them all.
I'm sure I'll revel a few choice stories about my Internet Dating experience in future "Dear Date..." episodes, but just know, yes, it's been tried.
I do not want to hear about your plans for grad school that may or may not ever happen.
I do not want to hear about the 'odd jobs' you've done for relatives this week.
I want to hear that you have a steady job that you either love or hate or care less about.
I want to hear you actually work for a living.
IF on the very, very rare instance that you are so independently wealthy that you do not have to work...MARRY ME!
Ok, but seriously, if you have oodles of cash or stocks or some other weird commodity that does not involve selling narcotics or people, and you don't need to clock-in anywhere, I fully expect you would spend your days doing something...anything....volunteering, schooling, meetings, anything!
Bottom Line: First "Dear Date" Lesson...have a job.
Otherwise you are wasting my time.
This comes from real-life experience.
I could not make any of this up if I tried!!
Until next time, be brave and have fun meeting people! Take a chance, push aside your high-falootin' ideals and see what gems you find in the rough.
