I think some evil force is in play. Some curse. “You will have everything, except love.”
I do. I have nearly everything: Health, wealth, wisdom, good friends, great food, entertainment, a sense of humor
… well, I haven’t been able to get Bush impeached, or stop torture or slavery in the world, and I haven’t been able to create anti-gravity or a solution to our energy problems… but those things have always seemed beyond me.
What frustrates me about this love quest is that I have already held it in my hands… I’ve only lost it. (Or, as I prefer to think.. temporarily given it back…) so I know it is within reach.
Internet dating is pure hell. I hate rejecting people and I hate being rejected… but not looking does NOT work. That is a myth, folks. You have to do something if you want to find love. But what? Picking girls up in bars is a great way to find girls who like to hang out in bars.
The only thing I can think to do is keep trying, over and over and over. Here is another attempt at Internet dating I’m trying today:
Unlike Match.com this one is free. Interestingly, I see some of the same people on here that I saw 6 months ago on Match.com.
Oh, and unfortunately my laptop caught fire when I was watching the Return of Spinal Tap (Why does this happen to me?!?) so I don’t even have the Internet at home… which makes Internet dating even more challenging.
PS. The Big Butter Jesus photo is included because his expression is exactly how I feel. He is looking up, saying, “Why this curse!?”
( As my long time readers know, I’m an ex-Catholic, now recovered, now science minded… and based on the evidence I’ve seen so far, I believe when we die, that’s it. Which means I have zero hope of finding love in the afterlife. I don’t get an afterlife in my cosmology.)
