Hello world, my name is Cassidy, and I have ventured into online dating and app dating. I totally believe it can work and people can fall in love! However, I have had a lot of not so good and some really awkward experiences. After I got asked to be a swinger with some guy and his friends I thought to myself, “ How did people meet in the good old days when there was no online dating or apps.” How do I find Kellerman’s, book my stay, and fall in love with a ruggedly handsome dance instructor? Where is my Johnny Castle? Where is my Ren McCormick? I want to get out of my corner! I want to hear it for the boy! So after watching some 80’s dance movies, and some Steve Harvey episodes I decided to put myself out there. My plan of action was to take a month off tech dating, and one night sit at a bar by myself. One night go hiking with a group of people I didn’t know, and I was going to go to a single christian dating club. I loved doing this experiment. I didn’t do everything on my list, but it kinda morphed into something cool!
Activity number one was a test in being ok with being by yourself, and I think I failed. All I had to do was sit at a bar by myself reading a book. I chose “ He’s just not that into you” because I thought that would be funny. I also chose a shirt that had amazing back cleavage. I thought that would be good if guys would be approaching me from the back. I sat there and watched really cool dates happen, and friends laughing, and I just kept on reading the table of contents of “He’s just not that into you.” Side note: I really like guys that are just not that into me! I got a lot from the opening page. I talked a lot to the bartender and some guys dad, but after four hours I called it a night. I knew 20/20 with David Muir was on, and I can’t think of a better man to go to bed to. I am glad I did it, but I don’t want to do it again!
Activity number two was suppose to be a hiking group. Then, I remembered I hate hiking, so I went to meetup and I did a feed the homeless activity. I went to Cathy’s Kitchen in Orange and none of my meetup group was there so they just had me join another group. I had a great time and I was just about to leave when I started talking to another volunteer named Casey about dating. She is around my age and still single too. We had a great conversation and she ended up inviting me to a Halloween party. The Halloween party was awesome. My makeshift sailor costume was not. Everyone kept asking who the nurse was. I met so many nice people that I really wanted to see again.
Activity number three was suppose to be the christian singles club, but they all looked a lot older than me. I thought to myself: I have guy friends that would make good boyfriends for other people, and if other girls bring their friends we can have a cool singles night. I was really nervous but we had the first singles night two weeks ago and it went great. I believe two couples were formed and some heavy eye contact was exchanged. We are going to continue to have these singles nights, so if you are interested please get a hold of me. My name is Cassidy I make love happen! I have not made it happen for myself yet, but I believe soon!
