To Expand Or Not to Expand?

Online dating – the social network mother for singles who are looking for future lovers. But what happens if a person wanted to expand onto a few dating sites?

This morning, I’ve read a wonderful post from one of my fantastic followers, DREAM BIG, DREAM OFTEN, who has just posted a sensational, spectacular blog post about boosting your confidence by discovering a life passion. It is a crafted article, which I highly recommend reading.

Finding a Life Passion Will Jump Start Your Confidence post:

And reading that post has got me thinking. I’ve had so many passions during my lifetime from swimming in the Special Olympics to performing on a theatrical stage. Some of them have come and go, but there are some that have stayed with me, throughout my life (so far). But what if there was a life-long, undiscovered passion that you are searching for and turn it into a reality? That’s my experience with Online Dating.

Since I’m not having any luck with meeting people in the flesh, I’ve wondered about trying to sign onto one more website (or two, if it’s suitable… I don’t want to be greedy, though. XD) It may be a bad thing; it maybe a good thing. It can be life-changing or something, really, really disappointing. If life has some disappointing moments, then could inspiring ones follow in their footsteps afterwards?

So, have you guys had experiences of having more than one online dating profiles? Has it been a bonus or an absolutely flop? Also, what are you tips for secret online dating tips? Please let me know in the comments section below – I would love to hear from you guys. 🙂

Why Do I Struggle With Love? – A Single Confession from An Early Twenty Year Old…

Have you ever thought to yourself – Love is extremely hard? Well, your not alone – I’m in the same boat too.

When I think on life and love, I simply think of these two quotes:



Now, I may or may not know people who will think of the same thing but I have a feeling every single person will have difficulty in finding what they desire – love.

The last time that I wrote about love was a month ago (Really? Wow!). During that time, I was speaking to the first guy I spoke to on WhatsApp after we agreed to speak to each other on the social networking site. However, I think something went wrong because after two weeks, he stopped contacting me altogether.

For while, I was feeling lost until I made a wonderful new friend who lives all the way in Italy. He’s very friendly and has an amazing personality.

I also made and kept in contact with another friend while I was away on holiday (but this one is a girl).

I am very happy and feel blessed to have the chances to have two, amazing friendships; I hope that they will bring good fortune will bring into it in the future.

As for love – I’m not too sure right now.

All my life, I’ve had difficulty to socially “fit in” because of my Autism. This made me lose my confidence and I wasn’t sure if I might receive such amazing friends around my age group, like I’ve been given now. And if I had friendships with others (at school, that is), they always end with no explanation. However, I never give up on friendships or love itself. I may feel like a total wreck when I think negativity, but is it really worth thinking of the past about others who have really let you down?

So, have any of you guys made friends online (and haven’t met them yet)? If so, how did they go? Where did they end up going? And is it true that friendships can lead to love? Please let me know in the comments section below – I would love to hear from you guys. 🙂

P.S. And to round off the article, I will leave you on another quote:


And speaking of love, I have included a link of an article, I just reblogged this morning – this article is written by the great Ramen & Inglenook, one of my fantastic followers. This article is great for those who have long distance love relationships (and friends). So, I have included a link down below:

Should I Arrange an Meeting with My “Blind Date”?


Another strange post; kind of like a social situation, slash aspiration, slash query and I…

Alright, skip that. I won’t bore you any longer; I’ll move on to the main topic.

Nearly a month ago, I signed up to a social networking site; this site isn’t just a dating site. Apart from finding potential partners, this site can helpers users find new friends and buddies to hang out with. I won’t say the name of this site because a) I’m not advertising this website b) I like to keep some details private, and c) I’m not sure if the site will appreciate sharing their URL link and information on my blog. Anyway, I have been searching and meeting people for a chat – most of them have failed and there was one who wanted to contact me, via WhatsApp. I wasn’t a user, but I was really interested in contacting him. So, I asked my Dad to download the app and there we had it; I started contacting him! 🙂 I’ve been in contact with him for two weeks now. Most of our conversations have been sending and asking silly, and personal questions and once, we sent YouTube videos to each other. We’ve been trying to keep our conversations interesting and so far, it’s been going great. 🙂 However, I cannot guarantee if he will be my future love, but I may prove myself wrong; I may not. Until that moment happens, all I can do is wait, think and … wonder…

But, I have a certain thing to ask – despite being unsure if a person you’ll meet on a social networking site counts as a blind date – who is supposed to ask to meet up for a first meeting and how long it’ll take before that person says, ‘hey, let’s meet up’?  If it’s the girl, eek! If it’s the boy, hmm…

So, have any of you guys had experience of meeting someone online and how did you deal with the first meet-up? Also, what are your tips for managing anxiety on a meet up and/or first date? Please let me know in the comments section below – I would love to hear from you guys. 🙂 Gigi Xxxx
