Trust: assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.
Trust is not easy to come by. In this day and age you can’t go around trusting everyone or you will get screwed. Of course we all trust our best friends with our secrets though, and value their advice, but would you trust them with your love life? I recently had to ask myself this question and it turns out my answer is yes. I trust Lucy & Emma implicitly. Sometimes I think they know me better than I know myself. After all, we all grew up together and who knows you better than your friends right?
At a recent get together, the subject quickly turned to who I am currently dating (as it always does when you’re the single one). I let Lucy and Emma know that at the moment I have absolutely nothing brewing in my love life. Mainly because I am busy and don’t like to waste my time with losers. After a conversation with my best guy friend, Jonathan Walker, I realized that as much as I don’t want to, I need to put myself back out into the dating world. As this thought went through my head, I saw that look on Lucy’s face. You know, the look when someone realizes they have a phenomenal idea.
Lucy said, “I have a great idea. Why don’t we sign you up on multiple online dating sites for just one month. I will have total control of messaging people right up until the moment you go on a date.” Emma chimed in and said, “Great idea! I want in too!” In my mind I was FREAKING out! Totally relinquishing control over anything is hard to do, especially when love is concerned. I took a deep breath and said, “Sure, why not. What do I have to lose?” But seriously, what do I have to lose? Maybe some money, but at the very least I will have tons of interesting stories to share with you! Whether I will live to regret that decision or not is still to be determined. I should trust my friends to pick a guy for me to date, right? Stay tuned for more adventures in dating.
