OK. I have a question. I am in a bit of a dilemma. That may not be the correct word. Perhaps quandry?
Last weekend I spent some time with a friend of mine. He and I have had several discussions on dating and how dishonest women are. He doesn’t understand why going out for drinks somehow, to the female mind, translates to “Here Comes the Bride” and “Happily Ever After.” I tried to explain that not all women are like this. He always looks at me, skeptically, and says, “I know you’re not like this but…”
Here’s my quandry. I’d like to dive into the dating world. But, how is a girl supposed to meet someone? I have a decent job. I’m a personable person. I’ll never be Miss America, but I think that I’m a reasonably attractive person. I’m smart. I am a hard-worker. Some might even say I’m funny. But here I sit, on a Saturday night, on my computer, watching My Big Fat Greek Wedding, blogging. I’ve tried online dating. Maybe I didn’t put 100% into it. And the profiles of the people with whom the 100 points of light were supposedly saying I’d be compatable didn’t interest me at all. I enjoy going out, but I don’t think that I’m going to meet someone long-term under the influence of alcohol or in a loud environment. I frequent Barnes & Noble and Starbucks, but perhaps not enough to meet someone. I’m not darkening the doorstep of a church frequently right now, but I honestly don’t want to meet a church boy. I’ve not met one in a LONG time that kept his identity or his own personality while serving in the church.
So, what is a single girl to do? Any suggestions?
