thoughts on dating. or rather, one particular thought.

There is no more inauthentic period of life than dating.
-Dan Allender

[ht: longbrake]

part of me laughed when i read this, because i agree. then, because i laughed, i felt a sense of disappointment that this seems to be the case. inauthenticity frustrates me more than many other things. i think i will battle the tension between hiding and being vulnerable for the rest of my life… and the idealist in me believes that one day there will be someone else who, in this quest to be authentic, will probably prove to me that i am way more of a tool than i’d like to think i am.

and this will be a really good thing.

    “i am way more of a tool than i’d like to think i am.” HA HA HA… that’s awesome, lacey.

    we’ve all got a bit of tool. sometimes it takes other people pointing it out to make us realize it.

    yeeesh. i have never known the depth of my Pride to be so clear as it is when I care deeply for someone, especially since the basis of a healthy, organic relationship functions on the basis of self-denial. though it’s always a good thing [the best thing?], it’s still the kind of good that feels like shit [for lack of a stronger word].
