I started off this year with a rekindled determination to try and meet someone. Surprisingly, I managed to, but it was very short lived, and I have to confess that after that episode, I lost interest again and have basically been ignoring my earlier resolution.
It's not hard to do most of the time, either, given my schedule. As Renee Zellweger says, 'I'm not single, I'm busy.' Maybe it's a bit of a cop out, but it is kind of true. That and the fact that it feels impossible to meet people in this city means I'm not really expecting anything to change. Even online dating feels completely discouraging. For one thing, it feels unappealingly like shopping, and without the guarantee that if you add something to your cart and check out, you'll get what you ordered in a timely fashion. There don't seem to be any rules of etiquette, or rules in general, with online dating. Plus, it affords you the opportunity to be picky and opt out before you've even done anything.
In short, I think I'm going to stick to dating myself awhile longer (after all, I always have a good time) and be content with listening to my virtual celebrity boyfriend's music.
