life in all its glory

does your voice matter?

Because apparently it does to some people.

Let’s call him Mr. Voice. We really hit it off on OkCupid. Felt like we were into some of the same things, on the same page of what we were looking for. Cute. Very responsive to messages.

It all escalated pretty quickly. Within the same day of us first talking, we exchanged numbers. We texted regularly for about a day or so. Then he became kinda fixated on hearing my voice. Saying he wanted to talk on the phone. I couldn’t that night, cause I was going out with friends. He ended up sending me a cute audio message saying good night or whatever. The next day, I sounded like a smoked a whole pack of cigarettes the night before….so I didn’t really wanna talk on the phone lol. He sent me another audio message. His messages slowed down. Barely heard from him. But, we texted a bit anyways.

The next morning, thinking I should maybe return the favor of the cute audio messages…I sent him one. Saying good morning and hoping he had a good day.


If I already wasn’t self conscious enough about my looks. Now I gotta be self conscious about my VOICE?! What is wrong with people? Maybe he has a fetish with voices and it didn’t fit with what he likes? He was so fixated hearing mine. I have a hard time justifying his behaviors. But…why try….right?

Anyways. Online dating is rough! Trying to stay positive….without having too many expectations?


balancing act?

So, “they” say…once you aren’t looking, “it’ll happen.” What in the entire fuck does that even mean???

Then, other people tell me to go back on online dating. How do I go back on online dating and NOT LOOK. Is it a balancing act?

I’m thinking it’s about going on online dating and not having any expectations?? That’s what I’m trying. I’m trying to do this online dating stuff and not really hope or expect to find “the one.”

Thoughts on this random Wednesday evening. Now that I’m back on OkCupid, I’ll have more stuff to blog about!
