The Dating Files: What I Want

So, it's been awhile since I've updated you on my dating life. I'm sure you've been anxiously awaiting news of this nature because what's more interesting than my insane love life. Not much, I tell you. Not much. There have been some fun developments as of late but I won't get too specific. Nothing is too serious, don't worry. If it was I would tell you. But I am having an awesome time going on lot of great dates this summer. Sometimes I wonder if I'm having too much fun. And the answer is most definitely yes. Lots of rose and oysters and pretty dresses. What could be better?

But someone recently asked me "what are you looking for?" And I had to stop and think about it. I am having the best time right now, being single and dating. I guess it's all part of figuring out the answer to that question. And here is what I know; I want to find someone to fall in love with. The marriage/baby stuff will figure itself out. Because I can't even think that far ahead. And there are times when I'm not even sure if I want to get married. Finding love is not about the end game of marriage for me anymore. It's about finding someone who I love spending time with. Someone who makes me laugh. Someone that is up for adventures. And someone that gives me butterflies when we kiss. My friend Gary said his dad used to say "don't look for someone you can live with, look for someone you can't live without." I'm not sure I would ever find somebody I couldn't live without but I did always like that thought.

So what do I want? Love. Good ol' fashioned love. I've (mostly) stopped worrying about the other stuff. And now I'm going to leave you and let's go have fabulous weekends. I'm going to see one of my absolute favorite bands tonight so I'm missing the Opening Ceremonies which is a little unfortunate as I am a total Olympics geek. But come on, it's The Head and The Heart!
