So, apparently I'm very into things that start with vowels.
I have an iMac, an E-Reader, and an iPod, and recently I just got an iPhone. You know, a SmartPhone. I have learned that they call them that because they are truly smarter than I am. Here is my new favorite picture of a high school friend of mine and I giving our best "SmartPhone face" (ie. feeling really old and confused) with my new iPhone:
And, this part is a kick, almost everyone told me I looked exactly the same as I did in high school. In fact, I'm about 1 size smaller now--the dress I'm wearing in the picture above is a 16/18 and my prom dress was a size 20. THAT was really cool. Now, if I manage to get back to my college for a reunion, no one will recognize me at all. I bounced between a size 20 and a size 24 all four years (and I had super-short hair that changed colors about every 3 months with my whim). I'll have to dig up some pictures of that another day.
Here's the other high tech-ness that I'm trying. eHarmony. I know, cliche, but I have no idea how to meet people and frankly I'm 37 and it's time I date. I am horrified, terrified, and completely out of my league. But I do believe that if something scares you a little it probably means that it's worthwhile to try it.
Here's the thing: how do you tell someone you're just meeting (and that you might want to date) that your life was on hold for 10+ years? Or that the last relationship I had was all one-sided? Or that I'm trying to figure out what I like and who I want to be still? It's like my personal development is still stuck at age 21. And I'm getting matched with people in their 40's, who have had real relationships, been married & divorced, had kids, etc. How the hell am I supposed to catch up?
I guess the answer is that I don't. I can only be me--arrested development and all. Wish me luck!
