Will the Real TL Please Stand Up?

 WILL THE REAL TL PLEASE STAND UP? After 35 posts, I've realized I haven’t written many heartfelt posts about my general outlook on love and what I want...and because this is the last, I figured I should at least attempt to let my guard down and get in touch with my inner sappy romantic side (if I even have that side).

I'm not sure exactly how I've come across, but likely a little bit (a lot?) promiscuous and perhaps slightly pathetic. Yes, I've gone on a plethora of bad dates and I've certainly had my fair share of bad hook-ups. I've also had really lovely dates and amazing relationships, as well as some pretty damn good sex. But it's these special memories that I choose to keep private because they meant—they mean—something, and I have a lot of respect for those special guys.

So, yes, in case you were wondering, I am capable of having positive experiences with men, and yes, I do want to find love.

Ninety-eight percent of the sexcapades I write about are from a few years to several years back. These days, I'd rather diddle myself than jump in bed with a random.

I've always been selective when it comes to dating guys. And since I rarely meet special guys, I have spent a lot of my time single—thus the reason for my substantial collection of stories.

Don't get me wrong, single life has seen a lot of action, and I lead a very fulfilling life. Between my job, my writing, yoga, running and my amazing friends and social life, my time is jam-packed with awesomeness. But I'd be kidding myself— and lying to all of you— if I said I didn't want to meet a great guy and settle down, because I truly do want that.

So as my Dating Guy blogging comes to an end, I’ve decided to make a few resolutions. First off, I vow to not date younger guys who don’t live in the same city. No, I’m kidding; I will do the opposite. I vow to proceed without any preconceived notions and remain open-minded. I promise to keep my pants on for (at least) the first number of dates. And, I hereby solemnly swear to NOT mention my dating blog history before getting to know someone…because if there’s anything I’ve learned from this experience, is that guys can be severely intimidated and don’t always trust a girl who spills all about her dating and sex life.
