Zev72: On Dating
Dating is hard.
It's making mistakes and starting again hoping that we've learned from those mistakes and being willing to chance new mistakes.
It's putting our best foot forward, knowing the warts and callouses life has given us along the way will be showing.
It's sharing the wiggly giggly silly things between us that can draw us closer together or pull us apart.
It's figuring out how to fit a new person into our world after having rebuilt our world alone.
It's finding time to get to know each other beyond the easy stuff, to the stuff that we struggle with, that doesn't make us pretty.
It's stirring up old hurts and insecurities we thought long buried.
It's learning how someone else ticks and understanding how to communicate with them.
It's allowing ourselves to be vulnerable to caring again.
Dating is hoping that maybe this time … we'll get it right.
