Finally, An Update

Well hello, blog-readers! It's been a while, eh? I have a lot of excuses for not updating in almost a month: Busy at work, dealing with a death in my family, hanging out with Chance every possible moment... But in reality, I haven't updated simply because not much has changed in my dating life. And that's what this blog is supposed to be about, right?

Chance is still very much a part of my life, and I am still very happy about this. No, we're not officially a couple yet. But no, neither of us are seeing other people. And yes, I would love for him to be my boyfriend whenever he's ready to make that jump. Well really, I don't consider it much of a jump at all. From my perspective, absolutely nothing would change. But I know it's a jump for him, so I'm being patient and enjoying the time I have with him.

And really, that's it. No recent blind dates, no crazy stories, no articles or TV interviews. Thank goodness! So is this blog going to die out? Yeah, probably. I mean, I'll still update if I actually do have something to say... But right now, there just isn't much to say.

I got a comment lately that asked why I chose to blog about this. I feel like I've answered this hundreds of times, but I'll say it again in case any of you are wondering the same thing. I never expected that anyone other than my close friends and my mom would want to read this. I decided to blog about my blind dates so that I wouldn't have to repeat the details a bunch of times - my friends could just read about it. It was easier. I also wanted a part of this project to fulfill the more creative part of my personality. The past two years, I've done Project 365, and since I'm taking fewer pictures this year, I needed something else to fill that space.

Chance is in Seattle this weekend visiting a friend. A trip of which I am very jealous, as I've never been to Seattle! So I'm working on getting some things in order around my apartment and then probably helping a friend move later today. Happy Sunday!


  1. I know it's none of my business, but what is he waiting for?

  2. The title of boyfriend/girlfriend: interesting dilemma. If you have an exclusive relationship, how do you introduce Chance to your friends if you can't call him boyfriend? "This is my friend Chance."

    Can you introduce him to your family if he's not officially your boyfriend?

    Does the fact you can't use the title boyfriend pose problems?

    I don't think it's wrong to avoid the term boyfriend/girlfriend in the first weeks of dating. It's not like marriage, there's nothing wrong with committing to each other exclusively after two weeks of dating, but I think it looks stupid when people claim they are "in a relationship" via Facebook within a week or two of dating, and then become "single" two months later.

    If Chance wants to ensure there's a promising long-term prognosis before he commits to being in a relationship, ain't nothin' wrong with that. It sounds like you're OK with that, too, even if the titles won't change the day-to-day status of the relationship.

  3. Great blog and good luck with Chance! I created the website with that same idea in mind. I hope it could help other people as well.

  4. How does your website have the same idea? I'm not seeing it.

  5. That's it, nothing more to share?

  6. Can we at least get an update regarding whether or not you made it to one year with Chance?

  7. Oh gosh, funny, I didn't realize people still looked at this blog! I got the e-mail notification and I was like, "Someone commented? Really?!"

    Yes, Chance and I celebrated our one year anniversary last month. All is well. :-)

  8. i don't look at it regularly, but as i was traveling down the blog rolls of years gone by, i figured it was time to check your blog site again.

    thanks for taking the time to reply. i can now erase you from my blog list.

  9. Had to ask, will there be a second Xmas with Chance?

    i accidental got here and very impressed at what i saw here. this is very good. i have a few thoughts of my own and i document it on my blog. i encourage you to view it and please motivate me
