So they ask about the possibility of "love" at this site. Even I did. I wasn't honestly looking. I believe once you create a site with a bevy of highly intelligent, like minded folk, it is a given that someone is going to find a connection. It would take something rather powerful to change the minds of those who do not believe in on line dating. People like myself, specifically. I am a skeptic, non-believer of many things, as many of you know. Even I poked fun of the idea of meeting a person on a website and finding anything beyond that. I even make fun of people who litereally do it! I always think, "what were they thinking?? They sure are biting off a lot aren't they? Relationships are Already difficult enough to maintain, so Yeah, Brilliant! Go meet a dude on line! HAHAHA"
Yeah... laugh it Up, Ari! I believe something has decided to doop me, make me eat my own words because... It has happened to me. It happened to me Here. I did not see this coming. I had no intentions of having Anything Remotely like this happen to me, and to top it off, he is rather distant from my location so, another hurdle.
However, I was wrong. Maybe All relationships are difficult, but in some, if you meet a likeminded enough person, it isn't as hard a job to care for them, to love them, even if circumstances are odd, even if your family and friends are shocked, not expecting this "From You of All People" and even if you "are the Smartest one of all" of them... sometimes you take that risk, you get made fun of, you Become that Joke. But a year from now, I want to see who is laughing. If I am Wrong, I am Wrong, but I've remained single for years now. I am asked out Multiple times a week and I have turned Every, Single Person down... until now.
So when I asked here not to long ago, "Does this shit EVEN work?" harty har har, as I scoff across the floor. I deserve it. I got exactly what I made fun of. Payback... right? (chuckle)
Albeit, what I Got... I have waited for so long to find. I am beginning to think, whomever came up with the idea for this site was Brilliant! It doesn't have to be set to absolutely date, but it does serve to put you up against some of the Best Minds out there, no doubt... and in that, some how amongst the sauce of this pot, I managed to find what I had been seeking for so long.
For the record: This Site Can Work if you are Seriously seeking love because if IT can happen to someone like me, cynical, disbelieving, anti-on-line dating, jokester, mocker, maker of fun and overall... Love disbelieving asshat can find some thing going on... surely someone else can!
Thank you for your time and... as for me... this, new person in my life, he and I have already made our plans for the meet up. We are going to Do This. We have already been doing Many things beyond chatting at Agnostic.com. We aren't playing around. No kidding with this one. This is ALL serious as hell!
Frankly, I don't know what happened and, honestly, I care not! All I do know is, whatever this is, whatever is happening here, had I NOT BEEN The person involved Directly in this... development of a relationship, I would Not Believe it... I would have made Fun of my friend... I would think it Crazy, Unrealistic. However, I Was there and this happened To me and since I Know myself, Know how I have kept myself Purposefully single, Know that I experienced unexplainable occurances to land me here, knowing im too logical, too much a skeptic... yet to Still be in this place... I cannot Deny the proof. I cannot Deny the experience. Therefore I learned to Accept it... to accept the love... to accept the person... to Accept the Unexpected and the Unexplained.
This is new territory for me altogether, for him as well. We are Both taken aback by this, both in wild bewilderment. We have no idea where the other was Hiding All This Time!
SO TAKE THAT E-HARMONY! Your QUIZ SUCKS!
Create a Site with INTELLIGENT FOLK Instead, not a bunch of lonely idiots. You won't Need any stupid surveys, quizzes and lame intro's. You would Simply have to gather them, like they say, "if you build it, they will come" (haha) seems to be a motto that makes sense, and then Let them Go!
Its the truth for me, at the very least, and for him as well.
I am ecstatic and I'm not gulliable nor eaasily beguiled. I can See Clearly what I am doing. This is Why I Know I am on to something. I Trust Myself, Above ALL Else. And now, equally, I Trust This... love.
So THANK YOU AGNOSTIC.COM! I shall continue to pollute your airwaves and... hey, GOOD LUCK to all my Buddys here, I miss you All!! I will be back! Don't you doubt that.
I love you guys and hope to chat soon!
Keep those faces smiling and keep those hearts Hopeful!
