Thinkin’ About The Future

So life has really changed … you know I’m here. Away from Florida, away from the heat and sunbathing, away from everything that I’m used to and that has made me so comfortable. I’m also away from my family relationships … and definitely void of a relationship with a guy.

Someone asked me if I wanted to ever get married again a few months ago and I had said, “Yes, I hope so.” But someone this week asked me and my answer changed: “I don’t care. I just want to find someone who loves me, is loyal to me and will travel the world with me.” You don’t need marriage to validate that.

Is that so bad? If it happens, it happens but I’m not so sure that if it doesn’t I’ll miss it. Or regret it.

What about kids? Same thing. It’d be nice to have them but in a few years if I don’t, I’m not going to freak out. All my friends are having kids. I’ll just hang out with them. LOL Who is to say that I won’t feel differently later?

Right now. I’m taking life as it comes. Worrying about the standards of society or whatnot is annoying and not as fun as just doing what makes me happy. I’ve been talking a lot lately with people from all over the world who think it’s amazing that I just upped and left … to embark on a new journey and have an adventure. Nothing is holding me back. I can go where I want, when I want and hopefully I can find someone to share those experiences with … sooner than later.

After being alone for almost a year, it might be nice to find someone who treats me how I deserve to be treated, who makes me laugh, respects me, isn’t afraid to try new things and isn’t afraid to feel emotion. Things happen for a reason … I always say it and I know you’ve heard me say it. I can’t make things happen when they aren’t meant to happen … no matter how hard I want them. It might take time to get over the feeling of aimlessness and lonliness but you know what, although those words are frightening and can seem sad … it’s kind of exciting to not know what is going to happen.

I’m going to continue on doing what I am doing. Things for the past two months have had their ups and downs but I am thankful for the experiences and can’t wait for what’s in store. The winter is coming … hopefully it won’t bring the gloom but open up more opportunities to explore, meet people and find a new direction.

Item #1 I LOVE about Cincinnati!
The rivers and the bridges! Gorgeous! <3
I will forever be intrigued by the different bridges crossing between Ohio and Kentucky in this area and how beautiful it all really is especially on days like this.
This day might have been the day that made me thankful to live here and made me let go of Orlando …

Online Dating Cracks Me Up

I’m not ashamed … I have an online profile for dating and it has been more amusing than anything. The way people communicate has changed so drastically and being on this website has brought this to my attention even more so.

People can’t spell, don’t know how to start an appropriate conversation or be polite. What more can you expect from a site that most people use to just find someone to hook up with? Not my scene.

So in order to screen a bit more (and possibly piss off some people) I put this in my profile … (my list aside from the fact that I like tall guys haha) …

Please don’t message me if:
-you are still in the partying stage of your life
-you don’t have a job
-you live with your parents
-you are just looking for sex
-you can’t spell or write in NORMAL English
-you pop your collar
-you are overly vain and concerned with looks
-you don’t have an imagination
-you don’t want kids
-you HAVE kids already
-you only want to sit at home and play video games
-you don’t have a sense of humor
-you got really offended by anything I just wrote

Then one day I received this message:

I read your profile, and I think I am what you are looking for.

Basically, I love to party. I party like everyday. I have good friends that supply my beer, because I don’t have a job. I live at home but my parents don’t mind when I come home drunk, they are usually sleeping.

Onestly, iyme jus lookin fur sex, but I that just tends to happen whenever I pop my collar…chicks dig it. Speaking of chicks, I only talk to pretty ones like you. I could care less about character and personality, so long as the chick is hot.

I’m pretty standard. I’m not very creative, but I do like to chill with my 5 kids, eventhough I don’t really want them. I’d rather spend that time playing video games, to be honest.

I’m not really funny or anything, but your profile pissed me off, and that turns me on.

Talk to me babe.

I usually ignore people I’m not attracted to or that send me RETARDED messages but I thanked him for making me laugh and sending me the best message ever. :)

Thought I’d share …

Have you been to RanGestsu in Orlando?? No? They&#8217;re amazing! They&#8217;re so amazing I wrote a sparkling review. It was so sparkling that it is the Review of the Day on YELP!
If you aren&#8217;t a Yelp user, you should be. It&#8217;s a great way to see real reviews from real people on restaurants, hotels, entertainment, bars, etc. Also - the app on your phone makes it easy to find points of interest around you!
I became a Yelper in April 2011 and I don&#8217;t know what I ever did without it. When people say &#8220;Where should we go eat?&#8221; or &#8220;What&#8217;s good around here?&#8221; or &#8220;Is that place any good?&#8221; I always respond with &#8230; &#8220;YELP IT!!&#8221;

Hello #Cincinnati!

Hey guys - so sorry I haven’t blogged in a while. It has been crazy with the move. Just got here on Tuesday and getting myself situated in the new house and with the new surroundings.

I know I have to catch up on many reviews on Yelp and writing blogs about delicious food. I will stop only giving you food pics and share some experiences with you. I am super excited.

Tell you right now … the weather up here is fabulous right now. I know it’s going to be blistering cold in a few months but bring it on! I’m ready to try this new adventure in the snow!

I’m excited to get to know you Cincinnati!! :)
