How would you feel if someone called you “my love” after a few exchanged messages? Me, it makes me recoil.
Don’t get me wrong! I have fallen for someone after a few days. But during those few days, we spent many hours together. We fell in love with the moment of getting to know each other.
Shouldn’t there be some sort of rule that pet names should be reserved for people you’ve actually met. And if that’s a rule, why don’t we add that you’re not allowed to use the same pet name for everyone you’re dating (See, Wanna Borrow My Big Girl Panties?). Maybe hard and fast rules shouldn’t apply. Maybe he is just feeling the moment, but love is such a deep word in my world.
When I use the word it means I deeply care for you. That I can not imagine what life would be like without your very presence in mine. It’s sacred and some internet dating dude is using it without even knowing my last name.
Why can’t meeting someone new be easy? I was going to stop talking to men through dating sites. And maybe I should but at least you’re meeting people.
Single, mother and hopeless, that’s how I feel sometimes. I know if it’s meant to be, I will meet him. Until this, I will try to avoid me who fall in love after two days worth of emails.
