i went to a single adult fireside last night, but that isnt the sign. i am considering going to a dance. I KNOW, I KNOW!! its crazy. it goes against just about everything about me, but i am still considering it. so make sure your years supply is in order and that you have all your emergency/disaster kits up to date. you never know what will happen if smc(yes, i am referring to myself in the 3rd person)goes to a dance.
the fireside was great-the topic was something that was incredibly timely and needed to be addressed. it was about successful dating and communication. really good stuff and the kicker is that the speaker was single. been divorced for quite some time and he even joked about how he had seen some of us on ldsplanet. i thought that was pretty funny.
i ran into an acquaintance that used to be in my ward before she divorced her husband and went to the singles ward. turns out since her divorce she has left her shy, mousy persona behind and is now the belle of the ball. she was introducing me to a ton of people, but mostly men, which is surprising since normally women far outnumber the men at these type of events. it was pretty well balanced.
it was a busy weekend. i chatted with two new guys from the dating site. i have a "phone date" with one tonight and if it goes well we are planning a date for saturday.
i got used to my hiatus. this is weird, but i am embracing it. stepping outside the box and going with it. for now. until it gets too scary and my head wants to blow off. it could happen.
