Since the end of my last relationship, I have been content to be single and not actively seek dates. But in the last few weeks I have been thinking more and more that I am ready to move on and start looking again.
My problem is that I am at a crossroads in my life. I am trying to sell the house I live in, trying to find a new job, and trying, successfully so far, to lose weight. I feel as if I should wait to have my life settle before I add another element of chaos into it.
I have never been good at dating, an example, and lack the nerve to be direct and just ask someone out. So I placed a profile on one of the more popular dating sites, no I won't tell you which (yet), and in my search for what I am looking for came back with profile that was really interesting. She works in the same industry as I do, is really cute, and her profile sounds like exactly who I am looking for.
There's the rub. What's my next step? I hate being in a one of those moments where if my life was a movie the people in the theater would just be shouting "Kiss her already!" My friends do it enough in real life. Yes, I am talking about you, Mrs. H.
So for you Ms. ohquirkyone, and to placate those of you yelling from the audience, look for an email from me soon.
While helping cover a shift at work today, I helped a gentleman and his daughter from Georgia. She was the epitome of "perfect".
The women who catch my eye are rarely the drop dead gorgeous supermodel chic hipsters but the down-to-earth quiet ones who have that mischievous smirk just under the surface of their smile. The woman from Georgia looked the part of a woman from the Northwest -- short blond hair, North Face fleece, jeans, low-rise hiking boots and had dimples to die for. But the clincher? Her smooth as silk southern accent. If it wasn't for her father standing next to her, I would have immediately asked her to forget her past and run away with me.
But alas, it was not to be. She took her ticket, said thanks, and all I was able to get out was "Can I help the next person in line?"
