Spice up your life!

I want to thank you for all your suggestions! I’m not really sure how to have the money automatically taken out when I get paid, so for now as soon as I do get paid I will put the money aside manually.

What doesn’t help is the fact that as soon as I decided to start saving more my best friend plans a weekend ski trip!! However I am not deterred. I put all the numbers together and will still be able to put money aside and go on this trip!!

I’m really excited. Even though I actually can’t ski (stupid knee) there are a lot of other things for me to do. There are eight in total going on this trip and there are 2 or 3 others that won’t be skiing either. So I will have company. Plus they have Snow Tubing and I will defiantly be doing that!

This is will be a good little mini-vacation and also it will help break up the monotony in my life right now. My weeks lately have been blending together because I always do the same thing, week after week, month after month. This will hopefully ad spice to my life and I can finally feel like a normal 20-something. Seriously sometimes I feel I’m 80 because my life is so boring.

Speaking of adding spice to my life. Lately I have been thinking of joining an online dating website. This makes me really nervous, because a) I’ve heard mixed reviews and b) I have terrible self-esteem and the fear of rejection makes me have a slight panic attack.

So what do you think?

I need some pros and cons about joining a site. On the one hand I feel like I’m to young to be resorting to this yet. On the other, I haven’t met any new or interesting guys in a lonnngg time. This is what happens when you move back home and every time you go out it’s like a high school reunion.

I have done online dating. Pro: you do get dates and meet people. Con: it really is geared for physical attraction. If your photos are not hot, your personality doesn't get a chance. I find real life to be much more easy going. I would say that is not for the feign of heart.

That being said, I'd do it again

I joined a free online dating site and got really annoyed with the people on there. Other friends of mine have had a lot of success though so you could try it and quit if you don't like it?

I've tried both eHarmony and Match. There are pros and cons to each. I met some interesting people and went on some dates that were fun. There weren't any sparks though. So, pros- you meet people you wouldn't meet otherwise, you get to go out on dates and have fun. Cons- it's like a full time job keeping up with the emails and messages on the website, sometimes you have to deal with creepy guys, and it can be exhausting.

As for the rejection fear- it can happen. I was rejected a few times and it hurts at first, but then I got over it. I reminded myself that it's okay if they don't like me because there are people that I don't like as well. I'd rather be rejected on the internet than in person.

I think you should try it. It's a great experience. I'm glad I did it. Let me know if you have any other questions! I'd love to help. :)

It can be fun and you can meet more men, who can teach you what you do and don't like, if nothing else. I'm just reading The Rules to online dating by the same authors of The Rules, so I have a better idea of how to go about it.

I'd say give the dating site a chance, you might meet some creepos, and get rejected a time or to (it happens...) but you also might meet some really awesome guys! good luck!
