Romantically Challenged is a new show that will be premiering this month on ABC, starring Alyssa Milano, of all people! I’m sorry but it is awfully hard to believe that Alyssa Milano is romantically challenged in any way. Nonetheless, I’m curious to see the “romantic challenges” her character faces on the dating scene in this show.
After all of my misadventures (and yours too) I probably could serve as a consultant for the writers of this show. I definitely have had those moments when I feel romantically challenged. Just when I think I have found a dating groove (not as sexy as it sounds, believe me), I hit a snag with men. Either I choose the wrong type or get confused by mixed signals. That’s when I pretty much check out on the relationship angle altogether.
Maybe we are all challenged in some way though, right? (RIGHT!?) I can recall a couple of exes that seemed pretty clueless about navigating a relationship. It was exhausting at times! I didn’t want that role and the dynamics of this kind of a relationship is pretty awkward.
Do you know how uncomfortable it is explaining to a grown man that just because he ticked me off doesn’t mean I want him out of my life altogether? Have you ever dated someone who needed to be guided about the inner workings of a relationship?
What do you think you learned from the experience? What did you learn about yourself?
What do you think makes you romantically challenged? If you are lucky enough to have it all figured out, please enlighten the rest of us.
