File Under: Broken Record
I don't have luck with dating. I put myself out there only to set myself up for disappointment. Then I give up on the whole process for a while. Then I meet someone and get my hopes up, only to have it happen again.
Most recently, I met someone with whom it seemed a nice rapport had been established. We had great conversations, and we seemed to enjoy each other's company.
We spoke today, and I got the "you're a terrific guy" line. Once again, I took the high road and was gracious and polite and I wished him well.
As often as things like this happen to me, it should get easier. It doesn't. It shouldn't be such a disappointment. It is.
Life goes on. I guess I'll drink tonight.
