Dating in the dark couples still dating
Dating people casually, I didn't really meet anyone that I was interested in for a while.
Our families don't know about us, because it's kind of a taboo.
It was great, because I couldn't get out a lot at the time — I could get out maybe once a week, if I had a babysitter.
And you're not going to meet somebody at a bar if you're a single mom. Five months into dating, he proposed, but we had already been talking about it for a few months. So I saw that Khalil liked me, and at this point, it was kind of overwhelming to be a girl doing online dating — I needed to make a spreadsheet or something. After doing online dating for a while, what I knew was I'd rather not spend a long time getting to know him.
It wasn't a priority, because I was seeing so many random people at that point.
And when I finally met Eddy for our first date, I had been going on so many of these, and was so busy, I didn't even know his name.
So we didn't really talk for a couple days, which felt like a long time. I realized he wasn't trying to end things; he did want to keep dating.
