Yup, I play Wordle every day, usually around lunch time.
Yesterday, for the first time in over a year, I walked into my house from running an errand and yelled, “I’m home,” and someone responded. DaughterGeeding has been staying with me as she completes her COVID isolation. It’s the little things you miss when you’re divorced, like someone greeting you when you come home.
I have a date tonight. That feels weird to type and to admit. It will be my fourth or fifth since we separated, each with a different woman. Tonight will be the first time I meet this woman in person after chatting for over a month. One issue when I date is that I often think of my ex-wife, which is wrong, because my date deserves my full attention. One thing I’ve learned getting back into the dating pool is to set my expectations to be low. Dating in your forties is nothing like it was in your twenties, especially when both of you have children. At a minimum, just look forward to meeting someone new and learning a little something about them.
There are two types of women on dating apps. One prefers to message a lot to get to know one another before meeting in person, and the other would rather meet in person sooner than later and do away with all the messaging.
I had a date two weeks ago. Even though she was a doppelgänger for my ex’s sister, she was really nice, but we just didn’t click. And, the date ended rather early. I tried to be a gentleman and walk her to her vehicle, but she declined the offer. C’est la vie.
