Dating: Are you delusional?

There are a lot of single people who have a healthy dose of confidence, which is great.  There are others who could use a little reality check and some humility.  Some of the most shallow, nit-picky people with the laundry list of requirements are not really in a position to be demanding perfection.   Actually, no one should demand perfection because that is not a real thing.

I am always perplexed by the delusional: You have the husky men who frown upon women with curves and a little fluffiness.  You have women with no ambition and bad credit who only date highly successful men with A+ credit.  There is the guy who has slept with an entire zip code who decides he wants to marry a virgin.   You get the idea, right?

I believe self-awareness and self-actualization is absolutely imperative on the dating scene.  Especially in Atlanta.  This city is full of people who believe their own hype.  Get high on their own supply and become straight up delusional.  These people are in the “matrix” dating scene and have taken the blue pill.  They choose to live in an alternate universe where logic and reasoning don’t exist.  When you see one in person, just smile and walk away.  Trust me.

How do you know if  you have completely unrealistic expectations in dating?  Some of us have friends or family who keep us grounded. Who do you have in your life that makes sure you aren’t delusional?  I have my guy friends who are always quick to remind me about being unrealistic.

Have you ever met someone dating in the matrix?

Penelope – I have a little cousin named Penelope and we all crack up that the child’s name is Penelope. when the baby momma was pregnant she asked my aunt (the grandmother) what she should name it and my aunt said “hell. I don’t care. name her Penelope”. smdh.
