On the one hand, I’m super flattered that you would randomly read my babbling dating tales.

On the other hand, bluntly, you are, well, wrong. (I just laughed as I typed that.) Literally every single person in my life would tell you that you are wrong.

I wrote a lengthy response, but realized it might be worth turning into a proper story. You aren’t the first person to make some incorrect assumptions about me. You have such limited info about who I truly am and what my life really looks like. That’s not your fault or my fault.

I know that I can come across very direct in my writing and I fear I might sound defensive or harsher than I mean to be right now. My tone is matter of fact.

In any case, I’m going to ponder this for a bit. If I decide to turn my response into a proper story, I’ll definitely share it with you. I feel certain it will give you more context about me.

And since this comes up from time-to-time for me, it might be worth setting the record straight once and for all. Then I can reference it whenever someone else makes a similar comment. You’d be helping me!

Thank you for taking the time to read my stories — I’m most appreciative!
