Quirkyalone...and I agree

The other day I came across the website "Quirkyalone"  What is quirky alone?  Well the website offers this definition:

"Quirkyalone: n. adj. a person who enjoys being single (or spending time alone) and so prefers to wait for the right person to come along rather than dating indiscriminately."

The website also adds that quirkyalones are "not opposed to being in a relationship" but "prefer being single to dating for the sake of being in a relationship."

I think there is a lot to be said for this mindset and that it is very similar to where I find myself right now.   I am certainly not opposed to being in a relationship should the right person come along, but I'm not going to make finding that person the focus of my life.  In fact, I think I'd really like to have someone come looking for me for a change (but you know...not in a creepy stalker way).

I find the idea of being wooed a very appealing one and really, with the way my life is now (so much to do, so many places to be, some many things to accomplish)  I don't have the time to chase down and weed out potentials, not mention my track record with picking decent human beings to date?  Utter failure Not so good!  And internet dating, oh boy.  Let's just say that there are no rules about truth in advertising there.

So here's the deal for the hundreds of eligibles that are banging on my door.  If you want to date me you need to be willing to put in the effort to prove to me why I should because if I've learned one thing these past few months, it's that I don't NEED to be in a relationship to be fulfilled or happy.   And I figure, that if I keep doing the things love and living the life I want to live then I'm a heck of a lot more likely to cross paths with a person who has potential, right?

I guess this means I'm discontinuing the search, but I'm not giving up, because I'm definitely keeping my eyes open.  The rest, totally up to you...
