Today I got up early and went to the gym to work out. The class I wanted to take was full, so I ended up running on the treadmill for 35 minutes.
My reasoning for working out is three fold. My first reason is to be in better shape, so that when I go up and down stairs I won't be so much out of breath. The second is too loose wieght and there by feel better about myself. I know I am buying into "society rules" when I think that, perhaps if I'm "skinny" then guys might look at me and I might get a date. I'm 48, never been married (came close a few times but it never worked out), no kids and feel pretty secure in my job. So now I have gotten my career settled, I would like to concentrate on a relationship. Where was I? Oh yea, reason 3. I love eyeing the guys while they are working out at the gym.
So anyway, about my love life (or lack there of) I have tried multiple dating sites (even paid for a few) but no success. Never even got a nibble. You would think that in all of Peoria, I could find someone out there. Perhaps I'm too picky, or that I'm too shy and being picky helps keep me from stepping out of my "safe zone". I ask my self why would I want a relationship? I have great friends, supporting family and friendly neighbors (who look out for me). Well, good question. I think it is because I am getting older and would like to have someone to share my life with. Someone to grow old with and support, while he supports me. Plus, I just really think that it sucks waking up alone!
Sheesh, what a downer. Just call me Debbie!
