Sooo, back when my dear Laptop-of-Love crashed
, I received some really sweet comments from you dahlings wishing for its quick recovery (even though I have a back-up disc, I am def gonna buy my back-up drive this week, I promised myself – no
T. Burch sandals until I get this!!!).
Anywho, I remembered an anonymous reader leaving a comment & link to an excellent article on cnn.com:
Whomever you are – please let me know – I totally related to what this chick was speaking of & I sooo appreciate the thoughtful link – thank you dollface!!
The title itself is why I am still in the dating pool in the first place, not because I am UBER picky…I just don’t want to settle for the sole reason of settling..get what I’m saying
And what’s so interesting about the article is that she points out how, even when a guy seems great on paper, it doesn’t mean he’s the one. Seems OBVIOUS right? Not really.
Why? Because it’s not uncommon to date our same ‘type’ over & over again. I know I sure have in the past. Sometimes it’s just time to edit what we think our type should be…
“As I slid out of my great-on-paper guy’s bed and tiptoed out the door (shady, I know!), my dread was replaced by relief. Back in my apartment with only my cat for company, I realized that I’d become rather accustomed to being alone and while I wasn’t ecstatic 24/7, I was actually pretty happy. I loved my friends and family (and my kitty!) and I knew I’d be okay if my life stayed the way it was.”
So, at this point, she feels okay with herself as a single chick and doesn’t need someone else to ‘complete’ her…when –
“Of course then six months later I screwed it all up by meeting a great guy who I love to pieces.”
Good for you chickie. Start from the inside – out
& things will work out juuust
I hope. LOL!
p.s. – Am I the only one who noticed that in Beyonce’s most recent red carpet pics…she did not shave her legs??? WTF & Gross!!
