To get anywhere in life, you have to try. And if at first you don’t succeed, become more stubborn, determined, grit your teeth and keep going.
I don’t feel like I’ve made a connection with anyone in a while through online dating. But I can’t help but wonder, do I really want a boyfriend right now? I’m doing well professionally, but is it possible to mix a great career with a fantastic relationship? Are there any guys in London who are happy to play second fiddle to another’s job? I have times when I miss the closeness of a relationship, hence the dating. I would like cuddles, snuggling up in bed watching DVDs and eating ice cream, amazing sex and someone to flirt with. But can one man really encompass all that for me? Where does the concept of monogamy actually come from?
In the future, I would like to be settled. Have kids, watch them raise their babies and have someone special to share my dotage with. I don’t agree with Rihanna’s renewed bond with Chris Brown (nor Natalie Cassidy getting back with her abusive ex – especially when there are children involved) but I can relate to her recent comments about wanting someone to share incredible experiences with. But somehow it just doesn’t seem to be happening right now. I don’t feel I’m meeting the right guys. I’ll keep trying though. I’m sure there’s a guy out there who will ‘get’ me. And I’ll have fun searching. But it gets a bit frustrating when you can’t find the perfect dress despite shopping for ages. To any women in the same boat, I say channel that feminine strength and keep going. There’re thousands of guys on dating websites, and most of my London-based friends met their significant others online. And if it’s not happening, consider changing websites.
