    The real me I definitely would date. The image I project to others, maybe not. The defense, the wall, the fear can be a great protector, but it can also block potential good.

    @MrsBigglesWorth well said. My friend once told me that we don’t date a person we date their Senator; which means most people project the person that they think everyone wants them to be instead being their real selves. It’s all a defense against rejection.

    Trust is such a big issue. There is my #baggage: trust. Buzzword “date” and I go into offense mode immediately. And it so happens I’ll shut something down by projecting something or someone I’m not because I dont feel “safe”. But the opposite happens when becoming friends and then letting things take its course. I guess just trying to be friends is hard if you have a strong physical attraction… #complicated

    I would date parts of me. My heart, yes … my head not so much. I could do without my guardedness and my conscious/subconcious emotional barriers. Most of the men I know (w/ the exception of Tito and my gay hubby) would definitely not date themselves because they would not want to be treated the way they treat women.

    My comment from Twitter transferred:

    I don’t want to date me. I want someone who inspires me to be better. Dating my mirror makes me falsely believe I’m perfection. 2 ppl with the same flaws is a recipe for disaster. There’s no incentive to improve
