Today’s exercise is to “spice up your love life”. My first thought was “what love life?” LOL. The ups & downs in my romantic life has been the subject of numerous posts in this blog. This year I actually dated a couple of great guys, but the timing was all wrong (as usual for me). I played around & had fun for a couple years, but now I’m ready to be serious. Unfortunately, you can’t just snap your fingers & then have a serious relationship with the right person fall into your lap…you gotta do some work to make it happen.
Since I’m a single lady, I have to get a love life first before I can spice it up right? So for this challenge I decided to do some exploring of online dating. I know some of yall are anti-online dating…but its 2010 & online dating is commonplace now. I’m actually pro-online dating, you never know who you’ll meet online that you would have never run into on the streets.
I decided to try 2 sites: Okcupid & Black People Meet (BPM). Okcupid is free, and I figure it never hurts to use something that’s free, right? So far it seems like I get more responses from White men, but that’s not a problem for me, now that I’ve embraced interracial dating. I’ve used BPM before (incidently its how I met the dude in Jacksonville, who is STILL calling me, but I digress) and after doing a search I found a few interesting men to email.
I’ll be reporting back on how this experiment goes.
What did you do to spice up your love life? Any tips?
