I had a fun last night. I went out with two girls from work. In the span of 1 month I’ve made some new friends. Well, one of the girls no longer works there, she quit a week after I started, but its nice that we’re keeping in touch.
We went to St. Louis’ Bar at Yonge and Finch for wings, and they are pretty good I gotta say and I’m a picky wing eater. Anyways, we were yapping and gossiping about everyone at work, as one does when you’re with other co-workers. Suddenly, the girl who no longer works there says “I need to find a man”. Me and the other girl burst out laughing. I looked at her and go “okay, let’s start with what you’re looking for”. So, she stated what she wanted and how hard it is to find men.
Then she revealed to us that she had joined this dating site. I commended her for taking the steps to get proactive about her love life. If there is one thing I can’t stand is someone bitching about the state of their love life but doing absolutely nothing about it. Drives me insane. I mean come on, you are not going to meet anyone by doing absolutely nothing. The perfect mate is not going to fall into your lap from the sky.
So, me and this other girl discussed her options with the men we knew, but it wasn’t very prosperous. It was actually quite sad. The men I knew were too short for her (she’s very tall) and the men the other girl knew were too young. We started suggesting different ways to meet people, other than the dating site, that she can try. She said she would think about it. And then we decided that we would have a girls night out. I cracked them up by saying “oh my, I’m gonna have to have a nap before we go out and it can’t be on a work night!”. Yeah, I’m not the firecracker I was in my twenties. 😀
The dating world is tough. I totally get it. What I don’t get is how this girl can still be single, she’s beautiful, ambitious, intelligent and kind and yet no one’s snatched her up. Makes me wonder.
