Well said.

A conversation between me and a "also divorced" friend via Facebook chat:

Her: "Hey you. How's life?"

Me: "Pretty good. Staying busy. I see you are back with the boyfriend. How's that going?"

Her: "Couldn't be happier! Things are great and he's actually reciprocating!"

Me: "That's awesome! You deserve it! Keep me posted."

Her: "What about you and the love life?"

Me: "Just started dating [The Medic]. So far, so good. Still too soon to tell though."

Her: "That's awesome! I'm sure it will work out!"

Me: "Yeah. I hope so. But I'm so horrible at dating."

Her: "Everyone is horrible at dating. That's because dating EFFING SUCKS! WE EFFING HATE IT!" ***

***(She didn't say "effing"...I edited...something that she rarely, if ever, does!)

Me: "Well said. Very well said."

And there you have it. Apparently I'm not the only one exhausted with this process of trying people on for size. And why should I be????

Sometimes it really does feel like an all capital letters, cuss worthy kind of journey.

It's nice to know I'm not alone.

That's why I stopped. :)

Yep. Dating sucks, effing sucks, and what she said too. :0)

A and I work because both of us hate dating. We agreed from the start--no games, no stupid dating crap.
