The Dutchess asked the recently if y'all would start seeing funny (for y'all) dating stories now that I'm in much better shape emotionally. The short answer is: probably not for the foreseeable future. If you want the long answer, read on.
The thing is, the kind of dating that results in those funny stories freaks me out. Maybe it's because I'm so incredibly out of practice or maybe it's just because I don't like going on awkward dates with guys I hardly know. I've done those and they never, ever result in a second date, so why waste my time and my sanity? All of my significant relationships have developed out of friendship first, and I see no reason at the moment to change course. I shall let you know if I change my mind.
But because this is the first time in my life I've found myself both dating and proprietor of a blog, I figure I need to set a few dating+blogging ground rules. So here we go.
1. Thou shalt not blog about a date unless said date is a one-and-done situation.
2. Rule No. 1 may be broken in the event the gentleman companion gives prior permission for blogging.
3. Rules No. 1 and 2 may be broken in the event of a situation that's so funny, crazy or otherwise significant you would be doing the world a great disservice by not sharing it.
I ask those of you with experience with dating+blogging to suggest any other necessary rules.
