Not cut out for this world

14 01 2014

It’s a good line for a suicide note, eh?

I don’t feel like I’m in the right era. I may have blogged about this already, but I constantly feel like I’m living in the wrong time period. In this day and age of cellphones, Internet dating, and Grindr, not to mention things like being friend-zoned, love and relationships are so much more complicated that it used to be. Whatever happened to courting and romancing, fighting for someone’s love? Now it’s playing hard to get and the delicate balance of not texting too much but just enough — I don’t know how to navigate such complicated and frankly, absurd things like this. It’s all too much to monitor and to keep in line, at least for me. I don’t know how everyone else does it. I don’t think I’ll ever understand it and how to date in this world.

Mostly, I feel like I’m a chivalrous knight living in the 21st Century in North America where everyone has Facebook. Maybe I should just give up and become a monk.

Does it make you feel any better to know that you are not the only person who feels this way about modern technology? It has great possibilities, but I think we can all feel lost in it at times. I have moments where I think I will never be cut out for dating in this world. And the texting thing, I completely agree with you, endlessly frustrating.

That’s good to know that I’m not alone on this. How do you deal with this kinda stuff?

I’m still learning to deal with it. I’m not sure yet because I am so new to dating. I think we just have to learn to be kinder to ourselves, first off. When I figure out more I will let you know. 🙂
