Why I’m Writing This Blog

August 6, 2008

This blog was inspired by a friend of mine, who recently shared a secret she had been carrying around for years.  It took her a while to spit it out and when she finally did, it really wasn’t a big deal, at least not to me.  But, she had judged herself negatively for a dating-related decision she made and feared others would as well.  In response to her disclosure, I plan to publicly share my dating and relationship experiences, both current and past. 


This includes things I am embarrassed about, or used to be embarrassed about.  Fortunately, time heals wounds, including those to the ego.  Importantly, and part of the point of this blog is that sharing your experiences, thoughts, and feelings with someone else is liberating.  Sometimes it’s embarrassing or sad, but sometimes its funny.  So I will make a fool of myself, so to speak, to prove that sharing secrets is not the end of the world.
