I think I should date.

I am a thinker. Sometimes not the best thinker. You know, not that smart. Well, I am smart, but think too much for it to even be any kind of smart. I am an analyser. I pull things apart until they are completely naked, and then I attempt to put them back together. Sometimes they don't look the way they should, and other times they are perfect. My little piece of art in thoughts.

I sometimes think I suck. I sometimes think I rock. I sometimes think I should stop thinking. I sometimes think I should keep thinking as it is what I do. I protect myself, and at the same time, it can hurt me, and hurt others around me.

I wish I could jump in the deep end. No floaties. Just jump. No thoughts. Just jump......

Kick those legs. Flap those arms. And swim.

Or jump in the deep end. No floaties. Just jump. Have thoughts. Just jump......

Sink. And be rescued.

Sometimes I do jump and sink, and no one is there to rescue me. And I have no one to blame but myself. My own thoughts. My own over analysing of a situation. And I drown on my own.

Sometimes in life you have to stop thinking. Go with the flow. Follow that heart, or your head. Jump, with no thoughts, and flap around like a fish.

Time for me to jump in the deep end. Time for me to start dating.

{me thinking: 'I am scared shitless!'}

What do you think. Or are you not a thinker?


  1. i think rock n roll with it blease....... and if its not the dream relationship , if you later on think maybe this isnt right... then its all fine, you tried!
    you dove in , you swam, but then it got a little chilly so you jumped out.

    happens to the best of us <3

  2. Hello!
    I am a thinker. too too much. I think and then that tiny thought snowballs, and before I know it, I have an avalanche on my hands. I have to physically tell myself not to think. Ugh.
    Umm - jump right in the deep end and date. Whatever is meant to happen will happen. I don't think you will sink. you don't seem to be a sinker! xo

  3. I think you are ready. I think you will rock this. I think it will have its awkward, weird, and not so much fun moments. BUT I think there is a guy out there waiting for you, just you, and I think it is about time you find him.

    I think you got this!


  4. I think this reads like a poem, dancing around your subject thinking! I think I will print and put it on my inspirational wall. I am thinker and a sinker.
    p.s. really sounds like you are ready! JUMP inn.

  5. I'm a thinker. Sometimes I think about things longer than it actualy takes to do them. Date! It can be fun. Dating more than one person at a time helped me not to take it all too seriously. Keep us posted.

  6. I, like you am a thinker - to my own detriment I reckon! I think you should start dating! What's the worst thing that could happen, you meet some new people, have some new experiences? Have some fun! xx

  7. Sooo many people have that bird tattoo...

  8. Oh, I think way, way, way too much - I am an overanalyser extraordinaire! This post really struck a chord with me. I used to wish I was dumb and happy and didn't think about things. Now I'm learning to just get on and do things rather than letting my thoughts hold me back (baby-related exhaustion, perhaps) but I'm only at the start of that journey.

  9. We're all over thinkers. But you know what they say: feel the fear, and do it any way. x
