Anyone have a time frame for when I develop this thick skin I thought I had, and can soon breeze through the disappointment, rejection, and elation followed by depression? Do the women on the online dating sites treat the men just as indifferently as it seems the men treat women?
I'm already tired of the conversations begun, two or three emails, then no more forthcoming, the first meets that turn into nothing, and of course, I still can't stop kicking myself over my indiscretion a few weeks back. I mean I'm trying to, but seeing him back online without a care in the world for what transpired between us, makes me feel pretty low.
So, when can I start taking these things in stride? How does one stop the feelings of excitement that crop up so easily over an email, for pete's sake!!!! Why can't I just live my life, and make this online thing more of a 5% portion, the fun and entertaining thing it should be?
Man, I dislike being single at this point in my life!
