A New Outlook On Dating

No one go into shock when you hear this but I recently got myself a Tinder account (if you don't know what Tinder is don't worry, you really aren't missing tons). I haven't fallen madly in love with anyone (yet ;D) but one guy posted the link to his blog in his profile. He had written this post about dating that I was really impressed with.

You can read the whole post HERE.

This is a excerpt from it:
"President Uchtdorf's counsel is very wise, eye opening, and beautiful. All us seek acceptance. One of my greatest fears in dating is that I will say or do something that will drive girls away. I am afraid that if I am imperfect, then she won't want anything to do with me. I feel like if I do not meet her expectations, then I will not have a chance with her. We seem to be so quick to judge when someone's imperfection are so evident, but don't we wish people saw passed our weaknesses? It goes back to the golden rule that we should treat people how we want to be treated.
Everybody wants to love and to be loved. The best way that I know how to express that love is exactly how Elder Holland described it, be a kind word and a listening ear. I believe that if we all date with this attitude, dating will become fun and natural. The sooner we can all stop looking for perfection in those we date, the sooner we can find someone with whom life can be beautiful. We can create wonderful memories with a wide variety of people as we date a diverse pool. Life will become more beautiful, and the beauty that is innately in all us will begin to shine forth.

Last night I was working on a project in the walk-in fridge and walk-in freezer at work. I was moving these packages that had been under the fan in the freezer and a month or so ago it had been leaking so they were covered with ice. I wasn't thinking at the beginning and was just throwing the packages on the ground, I realized that I should get a garbage bag and put them directly in there rather than in the ground. I went and grabbed a bag and as I walked back in the fridge I immediately stepped on ice and went flying. My foot kicked the metal shelves and my head hit the metal door as all of me hit the ground. I tried working for a bit but then limped into the office at the insistence of Kayla after I told her what had happened. My foot continued to hurt for a little bit and my head ached but I went back to work. I didn't look at my foot last night or today until after walking around all day in shoes and having the edge of my shoe pressing right where the bruise was. This is what I found tonight and I now see why it hurts, all I can say is only me :(
