Going Sane in a Crazy World

My journey through life and the lessons I learn to help me grow spiritually.

Sane Friends

An Experiment

Ginormous Boobs wants me to burst my envelope and break my linear dating. I know my friend Paul had said that this is new direction is a good thing. So I'm asking you, my other two readers what you think? Stay linear or branch out? I would put a poll here, but I can only do it on the sidebar and I don't want that. So speak your mind and mind your manners.

6 people had cathartic therapy:

HAHAHAHAHA! You crack me up. I nomally date linear, so I'm anxious to see how it all works the other way.


Shit! Don't take my advice...branching out bit me in the ass this week!


One of the biggest things that turned me off from on-line dating was the attitude many men had that they didn't need to try very hard to impress a woman (or at all) because they could go straight back home to their computer and there would be 10 more women they could e-mail.
It made me feel very non-special, and also lessened both my interest and respect in them - even on a first date.
Either you are really interested in a relationship - and want the woman to also be decent and hopefully finding out that she really wants to get to know you - and that you both are trustworthy -- OR you just want to play the field.
It is really up to you, Mike....
If you don't like someone, obviously you move on. But if you do like them -- and they get the feeling that you're still maybe checking your e-mail and/or if any new prospects are around - I think it is a turn-off...
There is a difference between being a desirable person who is busy with life -- and a person who can't stand to be alone and is always checking out the next best thing.
You seem like a pretty nice, grounded person from your blog. Maybe all the attention now is fun, and you'd like to do that.
Just think about how you'd feel if the shoe was on the other foot, and the woman had 3 guys on the string... Would that arouse your competitive juices - or make you think she didn't know what she wanted and you didn't want to be part of her eenie-meenie-minie-moe game ???
Maybe I'm over-thinking it. Maybe not.
Your call really, and either way, I'll follow it with interest.


I would branch out and try the parallel approach instead of serial. I think knowing that you have options might make you less "hungry" for whom ever you are dating and that surely will make you more attractive.


Adventures are good and keep the spirit alive, whether you're single and searching or happily married. Branching out, going out on a limb, living on the edge...I recommend all these things. :)

(By the way, I'm visiting from Loving Annie's blog.)


I think you should branch out. At least until you decide someone is worth pursuing further. Just because you ask someone out on a date or accept a date does not mean you are looking for a commitment of any type. It is not rude or disrespectful to date several women until a conversation takes place that a relationship is an option. I have never seen anyone as a potential relationship until I have dated them at least a few weeks or more.
Just my 2 cents, of course.
