I’m not cut out to be a clown…

Confession time…clowns kind of scare me! There’s something about an adult that dresses up in funny clothes, paints their face and spends their time playing with balloons and entertaining small children. One thing I admire about clowns though is their ability to juggle.

Let me just say, juggling is SO NOT my thing. And I’m not talking about scarves, fruit or tiny little balls either. I’m talking about juggling the wonderful world of dating, and when luck is on your side, dating more than one person at the same time. Let’s just say there have been a couple “keepers” from my POF fishing experiment and it’s been a lot of fun meeting new people the last few weeks, but at what point do you decide juggling more than one prospect is not the best solution – for you or for them? And what if you make the wrong decision?

I don’t yet have an answer to either of these questions. I realize that dating is all about getting to know new people, finding someone you have a connection with and seeing where it goes. Casually dating more than one guy at a time is fine, as long as you’re honest with yourself and the other people in the equation.

Juggling is necessary though as you weed through the clutter to find that person you really have a connection with and want to move forward to something more serious. I would say it’s at that point when it’s time to retire your juggling act and move on to the trapeze where your stomach flutters, your heart beats with excitement and you can’t wipe the smile off your face as you fly through the air and entertain others and yourself with a new adventure!
