Back into my Hidie Hole

Dear World of Dating,
Thanks for letting me pop my head in and look around for a little while. 
You seem like lots of fun.
I, however, still have lots of growing to do and this awful pressure in my chest just has to go.
Until I (a) really enjoying playing games OR (b) don't feel like I have to play games in order to like someone OR (c) can lead someone on who likes me more than I like him, then it's probably best that I bow out gracefully.

Dating, you have introduced me to some really nice people and I am certainly going to miss you. And who knows? Maybe I'll get some of this sorted out in the next hour and we'll be back in business.
Right now, though, I simply refuse to put the time, energy, and emotion into you. Please keep me in mind, Dating, when you find yourself made up of all the good stuff that is supposed to come with the territory - companionship, confidence, assurance, new experiences, and excitement.
My good friend Singlehood has served me well for most of my life, with a few brief interruptions along the way. I know her. She isn't as fun to snuggle with and she certainly doesn't cook as well or make a great dance partner, but I know where I stand with her. She and I get along pretty well and I never feel like I have to mask what I'm feeling or trying to "catch" her, so I think the choice is pretty clear. She's got more to offer me, I'm afraid.
Thanks again for letting me visit the magical land that is Dating and I hope to get my act together so I can pop by for another visit soon.


Sincerely,
Sarah
