So now that I’ve started dating again I am sometimes hit with waves of self-consciousness that belie my seemingly cool exterior. The truth is I often find myself not knowing how to behave, and as I’ve made a secret pact with myself not to flip into my usual default position, over-exuberance, I just find myself, well, really bored with myself. While on the date.
And although I know very little about dating, even I can sense that this is an unfortunate position to be in. So what’s a sweet, sometimes sexy 50 year old me meant to do? Quite simply, be myself.
It’s not necessarily the answer that I thought I would arrive at, but after a long and circuitous route, with lots of resistance, here I am!
And that’s a really inspiring place to be.
Big Loving Namaste!
