This is why I’m still Single #2
Where have all the good men gone?
They’re not on any online dating sites, that I can assure you.
Granted, two of my friends found love online, and I’m extraordinarily happy for them. And I did find one guy worth dating, but that was many years ago. Since then, what have I found?
*The guy who wanted to take me to meet his parents after we met for a drink.
*The guy who wanted to bring his mom on our first date.
*The guy who raised dogs and drowned the puppies that weren’t worth anything.
*Or how about the guy with anger management issues who wondered if his meds were working?
*I’ve met every player and wanna-be-player in the parish. The guys who impress you by taking you some place really great on a first date, then for the second date they want you to come to their place and watch a movie. Uh, huh, right.
*On the flip-side of the player, what about Mr. Too Ready to Commit? The guy who calls five times a day, just to see what you’re doing?
Yep, I’ve found them all.
Where are the normal guys? I do have many guy friends, and most are normal. Well, pretty normal. If they were truly normal they wouldn’t be my friends. I’ll take semi-normal. I know those guys are out there.
At this point, I’d rather sit through a speech by Barack Obama than endure another dinner and a movie.
Is it just me, or did dating seem so much simpler in our twenties? In our twenties, we met someone, felt a spark, and Presto! We’re in a relationship. In our thirties, it seems so much harder. We meet someone, hope for a spark, and when it doesn’t flame up, we start all over again. Do we tend to over think things? Or again, is that just me?
Right now, it would take more than dinner and a movie to impress me. Be original. My favorite first date was dinner and a drive out to the lake. The stars were shining, the moon reflected off the water, the sounds of the waves and the night insects were the music. A few years later, I almost married that guy. Apparently, originality goes a long way.
Maybe it’s not just someone normal, maybe I’m just looking for that guy that stands out. The guy willing to go that extra mile to impress me.
After all, am I not worthy of an extra mile?
I AM Queen Alisha.
For now, I’m going to do some castle cleaning and enjoy yet another day off.
Here’s to the good men out there! I know you’re there somewhere!
