What happened to my man quest?

bitches, Dating, intercontinental, jerks, liars, man quest, realtionships

My life sucks but my life sucks because I do not do anything about it. I sometimes wake up in the morning with an urge to cry but I know I can’t until the kids are gone. And I only got myself to blame and I am taking full responsability for it. But once I enter my online world, I instantly feel better. Not that it is a safer world online as there are loads of jerks, liars, 2 face bitches… but they are also very nice people… the connection between people is oh so different online…

My daughter calls me a nerd everytime she sees me play video games online.  She said the other day that I needed to get off this “cyber hooking up place” as she calls whatever i am doing on the Internet and told me to get out of the house! But could not get out anyway as it was raining, pouring down! And where would I go?? To do what??

What happen to my man quest? I would love for my prince charming to just knock on my door, it would make my life so much easier… but I have a feeling it ain’t going to happen that way… Unless I want to change the title of my blog to “my failed man quest”… I think I better start dating again!

Lately the only time I get out of the house is to go to the supermarket… I spend most of my time online, micro-blogging, playing video games… and having some “intercontinental relationships” or is it what they call “intercontinental dating”?? Except nothing much happens because 1000s of miles are between all of us… This is when my world wide dating tour would become handy!

Maybe now would be a good time to un-hide my RSVP profile and be active on all dating sites again. But just the thought of having to go through all those profiles again… 🙁

Will give it more thoughts…


About the author

Coffee in the mornings is a must! I hunt and shoot aliens as therapy a few hours every day. Work sometimes demands that I tweet, Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram. I never leave home without my 5 inch stilettos, iPhone and of course a possible good story.

  • Max, if I was desperate I would put myself out there a bit more, but after so many disappointments I’d rather take it slow I suppose… but maybe now i am taking it too slow… it was just kinda reality check: if I don’t date I will not meet anyone for sure…

  • Hmmmm, he says…

    True, nobody will come knocking if they don’t know you exist. And true that there are many fakes and liars out there. I had a horrible experience with a woman two years back who lied about everything… except the bad stuff. Another story. Yes, ultimately you’ll have to either start dating or actively pursuing a relationship with someone… I don’t see me finding the love of my life by looking through profiles. It’s all about the interaction. If there’s not chemistry then there’s nothing. And looks, HEIGHT, money, or power doesn’t change that.

    I wish you well on your quest knowing I would love to be a worthy candidate but I will not impose the longing from different continents thing on you. I want to be your friend above and beyond anything else. Because if you’re not friends first nothing else will stick. Plus, I think you need someone who likes you unconditionally and isn’t trying to get in your pants. I’m sure you get enough of that. And if not, then let’s talk… (kidding! but not really…)


  • Hi,

    no need to feel so desperate. True love still exists and can be found everywhere. Even on/via the internet. Believe it or not, my wife and I found each other through such a dating site over two years ago. You can read all about it on my blog, I’m writing a 25 post series about the first two years as we speak.

    But I guess your daughter is right, the internet can be a tool, but in the end you will have to go out…


  • No matter if you are searching for your soulmate or just another person to spend some quality time with, it’s not easy. But don’t lose hope: you indeed have to try in order to get something because, no matter how much you want to, Mr. Perfect won’t come knocking at your door (unless you do something about that).

    On the other hand, there was this stupid romantic comedy once, when one girl told another: “Stop looking for Mr. Right Man, search for Mr. Right Now!” You may never now what happens… 🙂
