The Journey Day 128 04.17.20

Day 5 of the second #90DB. July 11, 2020 is the goal to complete this period.

5:42 AM — Listening to and reporting on the talk inside of my head this morning: So, online dating…

Do you feel my pain?

The first time out of the gate was tough. Double tough.

Sweet girl. Widow. A little bit older than myself.

I explained up front who I was, what I was about, what I was after.

NONE of those things included LTR or monogamy.

She said she agreed… but she didn’t.

Lesson learned on my part. I can be as clear and succinct as I possibly can be, yet people are going to hear what they want to hear.

Alas…

In the midst of this, friends have been there for me. True friends. Friends that give a shit about me.

That’s been the silver lining.

One of those friends, a tough motherfucker (how do I know? because he’s the only one in my current crew who finished #75HARD with me) suggested STRONGLY that I keep the main thing the main thing and get back to the business of working on myself.

Damn good advice if you ask me.

So, dear readers, this little side jaunt for “Ulysses” is just about over.

I guess I wasn’t meant for a relationship right now.

It’s back to work.

I’ve got some more ADULTING to get done today. Get some shit done. Hopefully, get some shopping done. Hopefully, find some toilet paper.

Then the weekend…

I’ve got to return some things to that sweet little widow…

It’s going to be bittersweet.

But Monday’s coming and it’s back to work.

Let’s get after it.
