Over the past several months, I’ve done a lot of coming and going. I’ve made random posts and made lots of excuses and apologies. I’ve tried (poorly) to explain that I disappeared for a variety of reasons and made a lot of (unfulfilled) promises that I would once again post more regularly. But this is the no bullshit post where I really explain where I’ve gone and why I haven’t posted regularly. And it’s one very simple reason: I haven’t been dating. And the truth of the matter is, it’s very difficult to keep up a dating blog when you’re not dating.
I didn’t just want to leave it at that, though. You guys deserve more. I continue to be in awe of the love and support I get from my faithful readers — people who I’ve never met and will probably never know, as well as people who care for me and have held my hand through every step of the journey. A lot of this realization came about when I got an email a few weeks ago from just such a reader — a young man who lives in South America who, somehow, came across this blog and found something worthwhile in its pages and posts. This young man did something a lot of my readers did, something that continues to shock me, something that I can’t help but find to be so hilarious for my readers to do: he joined online dating.
