When Dating Met TTC...

Dating sucks.  No ifs, ands, or buts about it.  The process to find that one special person is tedious and emotionally exhausting. 

The vast majority of dates are ok. 

I usually end up telling my friends about how nice the guy is.  That's pretty much a death sentence for any future cuz I can't find other interesting qualities to talk about.  

Then when I do find someone I click with, there's something wrong. 

Not minor stuff but major red flags.  Stuff like...

  • No job. 
  • No direction. 
  • Not looking for anything serious. 
  • Unresolved issues from previous relationships. 

But I stick with it.  Because I know it's a process. 

It's like shopping for that perfect dress.  You have to try on a whole bunch before you find the special one that makes you feel and look great. 

So I gotta go on date after date.  

After the dates, I usually tell a friend about it so we can laugh together about all the trials and tribulations I go through as I date.  

But she also pats me on the back and tells me what a great job I'm doing by sticking with it and not giving up.  That encouragement from my friend is part of what keeps me going. 

So I don't get stuck in the seemingly hopelessness of it.  Rather, that with each date, I get closer to the person I'm searching for.  Because I feel like I am.  The quality of each person I meet is getting better and better.  

But it would be impossible for me to go it alone without that one friend who's always there to listen.  It helps that she's in the best marriage I've ever had the privilege to see.  So I know it's possible for me as well.  

And so it is with you...

Your fertility journey is likely a never ending roller coaster of emotions and roadblocks.

What makes it even harder is that you probably feel isolated, not being able to share your journey with your closest friends and confidantes because they can't identify with you.

When you go through something as difficult as what you are now, you need a cheerleader to keep you moving forward.

What's even better is a cheerleader who knows how to help you along the process.
