If I'm So Awesome, Why am I Still Single...
I tell you what. Before I embarked upon my journey of self discovery, self improvement, and fitness, I sure had a lot more dates!
I certainly don't have movie star looks, but I'm starting to sympathize with them. You know, like when they are asked if they are dating and they say "I havn't been asked out in.....(fill in the blanks)". And you think "boo-hoo, rich movie star, you don't have a date..I feel soooo sorry for you."
But then the average Jane can totally relate! When I felt like crap about myself, and barely had a pot to piss in, I got asked out all the time. Now that I am happy with myself, have money, and nice things...crickets!
I like to tell myself that it just means I am meant for greater things. The wait will be worth it. And sure, when I activate my online dating profile I get a ton of messages, but how many of them are from someone I would actually see myself dating? Zero.
My friends say I should take things into my own hands and initiate conversations with guys. As practice.
The thought terrified me, but recently I've had success with talking to married, non-threatening men who take classes with me at the gym. So I discovered, it isn't all boys who terrify me. It's just the cute ones!
So I decided at Earth Fare, I should ask a cute stock boy if they sold peanut flour. I learned this where I learn most things, from watching TV! It was on an episode of MTV's "Made" where the girl was also terrified to talk to boys.
In the end, I shared way too much information about my search for peanut flour. Where I'd looked, and what I wanted it for. And since they didn't sell it, I had no idea when or how to end the conversation.
I got the feeling he just thought I was weird. Or desperate for a friend.
I swear, internets, I am NOT socially akward. I just have zero game!
