There has not been one person that I've met in Houston who was not GREAT!
I love how Houston is a melting pot of EVERYONE!
How I starting meeting people was joining social groups that have frequent meet and greets and fun interactive events. Plus, through these groups I was able to meet more people by just being out and becoming familiar with the Houston area.
Sometimes it's like this here......
Dating In Houston
Ummm........well, the dating scene here is yet to be fully experienced. The ratio of women to men is greater and even though the option of good men is better.....they have more options in women. Sighs....but let me not get too down and out since I am nowhere near ready to be in a committed romance anyway.
I will be completely honest and admit the following:
1. I am still very guarded
2. I am still nervous to be vulnerable
3. I do not know what I want
4. There are still things I want to learn about myself
5. There are still things I need to learn about men
6. There are still things I need to learn about healthy relationships
I am definitely NOT closed off to being in love, but it will be difficult for someone to have me right now because I am not fully ready to give myself COMPLETELY to someone to make a relationship work.....and yes, I admit that I do not know how to handle a man affections or emotions towards me. In which case, I do not want them to waste their time investing in me when I cannot return the same interest at this moment. This may be a destructive notion, but it is just what I am comfortable with right now. Am I being stubborn about this? Probably.
But, believe you me, when I am ready, the special man WILL BE FULLY HAPPY!
Yet, I will say his, so far, I have learned to accept the fact that I cannot force a man to be who I need him to be for me. He has to already be that man and when we come together, both our strengths will build the foundation. Therefor, he has to go through obstacles, make hard decisions, and learn lesson on his own to truly know himself and what he can offer the world, what he can offer me.
If he is half ready and I am half ready, then the relationship is doomed from the start.
