A marathon full of hope and rejection



“There’s an undeniable thrill about meeting a stranger and spending a few hours together, indulging in each other’s lives. It’s that spurt of saying whatever you want and leaving it behind with someone who’ll never look at you and think of it again.” ― Danielle Esplin, Give It Back

Have you ever noticed that going on a blind date is fraught with uncertainty and self doubts? Sight unseen two strangers arrange to meet in a public place and hope that something magical will transform their lives forever. They don personas that are totally alien to their real life selves and pretend they are someone else. In this photo three people at a bar eyeball one another with different thoughts and aspirations. Is he the one? Is she the competition? Do I have a chance? All are relevant questions and quests that would baffle Indiana Jones in this real life marathon for love. — gc

Quote of the week: “What is true is already so. Owning up to it doesn't make it worse. Not being open about it doesn't make it go away. And because it's true, it is what is there to be interacted with. Anything untrue isn't there to be lived. People can stand what is true, for they are already enduring it.” ― Eugene T. Gendlin, Focusing

    • Most blind dates are fun Susie. You get the chance to put your best foot forward, meet new people and expand your personal horizons. The thrill of going beyond your familiar comfort zone is also exhilirating. You do need to keep your wits about things but it is generally a fun time. 🙂
