Less Interested

"The more he talked, the less interested I became." 2009. embroidery on fabric. 1.5" X 3".

Despite my work on "Were I So Besotted," I have been on a dating hiatus for some months as I crammed out artwork, and worked out the ups and downs of past and a recent entanglements. 

My re-entry into dating these past few weeks was somewhat nostalgic. I remembered that I love the anticipation, the first emails or phone calls or text messages that give me hints into a person I may soon get to know. What I dislike is the frustration of sticking out a date when I know within the first 20 minutes that I will not want to see the person again. Sometimes, I know before I even go on the date that I am not interested, and end up going out of a sense of obligation. 

I sense that there are more engaging moments ahead of me. I can't wait.


  1. Haha...glad you're back into gathering muses if that's not too mean to say about the subjects;) I totally know what you mean. Whether it's dating or just meeting a person you know right away if it's gonna work out. That's about when I stop making eye contact.

  2. I wish it were that simple! I usually know right away if it won't work out. The rest remains a mystery.
