Dating makes me feel like the junior high wallflower, tongue-tied and awkward and sick to my stomach.  I’m a little bit of an extrovert-leaning introvert.  (If that makes any sense.)  I’d rather be home alone than have to sit on a first date and wonder what this stranger thinks of me…  And I’d really rather be with my beloved, sitting in comfortable silence, than making small talk with someone I don’t know.

And yet, I know I have to meet people and feel them out…before I get comfortable being with them, and feeling them up.  🙂

Then you add in the social oddity of being non-traditional in my relationship orientation, and I really get overwhelmed.  I want to date.  I want to find new friends, and make new connections.  I would love to fall in love again, and again.   But that means I have to date.  Ugh.
