It was then that I realized why I found these men so boring — we had nothing in common.
They were men who I wouldn’t have given a second glance at two years ago.
A blind date is when two people who don't know each other go on a date together.
But I also was wasting my time with a lot of people who weren’t looking for what I was trying to find: a real connection that could grow.
I was dating guys who seemed like Pinterest versions of partners, without really caring about what made them tick.
Instead of getting to know them as people first, I was basically interviewing them for the role of “boyfriend.” That’s what I was doing back when The Naked Test had to be instated, and that’s what I was doing again. Well, for starters, I’ve recognized that the idea of being “relationship material” is incredibly subjective, and changes depending on the person.
Since him, I’ve felt a little uneasy, since that breakup coincided with the death of my grandmother and the weddings/engagements of three of my cousins.
