And So it Begins... {The Search for Charming}

Once upon a time, there was a princess who focused all of her time and energy on building her career, knowing she had plenty of time for love and her happily ever after. She met many suitors who passed themselves off as Princes and Knights only to prove themselves to be ogres, toads and villains. 

One day, she realized she was at an excellent place careerwise, but not so happy personally... She'd lived in a far off kingdom for years filled with couples and families and knew she wanted what they had - but had to return to her own kingdom first. 

Now she's returned and her search for Charming begins... How far away is her happy ending?
Ok, so, cheesy story aside, I've spent the years since college focusing on my career and dating just really terrible people. In all fairness, I wasn't choosing "partners" based on longevity or any other sort of grown up quality.

I lived in Vegas, a town where no one was in a rush to get married, and then moved to St. Joseph, a town where everyone already was married. Somehow I missed the memo that while my company was relocating me, I was supposed to bring my own husband! 

The longer I lived in St. Joe, the more I realized I wasn't going to stay. What was the point of trying to meet anyone in a town I had no intention of staying in? So, no effort was made. 

Now, I've moved back to Northeast Ohio and I plan to stay. I actually think I'm ready - finally - to put some effort into finding someone. Someone I'm happy to be wth, someone who's happy to be with me. 

I'm ready to find my Charming and bring you guys along on the, probably hilarious, adventure. I'll share the ups and downs of my dating experience and you can laugh and cringe right along with me. 

In a stroke of perfect timing, my first date since I've moved home is tonight. 

Wish me luck!
