Think it's easy being famous? Farrah Abraham begs to differ. The star of MTV's Teen Mom was sold out to the tabloids this week by a woman she barely knew, and now the whole world is debating her love life. Oh yeah, and she can't seem to find a guy who doesn't want to be around her just to ride on her famous coattails.
The latest episodes of the reality series have shown the single mom jumping into a relationship with a guy named Daniel, planning an overnight out-of-state trip with him on the most recent Teen Mom episode after what seems like just one or two dates. Farrah has drawn criticism for moving too fast, but you can hold your complaints.
Farrah told MomFinds this week that she and Daniel are already history. She's put dating on the back burner because, as she told the site, "It’s hard being on TV and trying to find someone who is truly interested in me instead of fame."
But Farrah admits she has tried online dating in the past, and when she's ready, here's hoping she'll give it another try. It could be the perfect answer to her fame-hungry guy problems, for the same reason it has worked for so many of us (yes, I'm on that list too ... I met my husband online more than a decade ago).
When you meet someone online, you start slow. You put out only the information you want to. Hold on, I'm not suggesting you lie. Lying online is only going to get you in trouble in the long run.
But if you've had trouble finding a relationship because people pre-judge you based on something -- be it fame or that embarrassing incident back in fourth grade that EVERY guy in your neighborhood still remembers -- online dating is your chance to put it all aside. You can let this guy (or girl) get to know the you that's on the inside and hopefully fall head over heels before you reveal details like fame (for Farrah) or you know ... that hideous stalker ex-boyfriend that scares every other guy off.
Are you like Farrah? Have you struggled to find someone who just likes you for you?
