After years and years of research I have finally figured out one of the most perplexing questions for single women. Where to find the nice looking, single guy who’s the right age and who has potential to be long-term.
As most of you know from past stories I can meet people anywhere, including sitting next to him on a plane. Although that only lasted a couple of years it was a great experience and he’s a good guy, that relationship taught me a lot about myself.
The real answer to the question Where do you meet a hot eligible man, is actually ANYWHERE. My answer to that question is a little different these days.
I think the answer is this: You can find a cute eligible man by leaving the house when you look like hell, don’t feel good and don’t much care. I believe I have probably missed out on a few good men because every time I go out of the house when I really shouldn’t I see lots of potential.
It’s almost like there’s a Batman symbol out there when a single woman leaves the house looking like she’s been drug through the mud and this symbol tells the eligible guys to go to Walgreen’s, Wal-Mart, Target or wherever it is she’s headed.
It happened to me today. Pneumonia is visiting me again and I am currently the poster child for a “Go to the Doctor” public service announcement. I did not go to work today, I worked at home. I did not get out of my pajamas today, I couldn’t be bothered. I didn’t put my contacts in because it seemed to be too much work. I did take a shower at one point though thinking it would make me feel better……it didn’t.
Anyway, around 6:30 I decided if I was going to make it through The Voice and get some sleep for tomorrow’s 8:30 AM meeting I needed to pick up some cough drops and something to knock me out. The task was daunting and I couldn’t be bothered. I left the house in my pajama top, sans bra, capri yoga pants with holes in the rear seam, running shoes with no socks, glasses and a zip up fleece. It was bad, very bad.
When I arrived at Walgreen’s there they were, they had followed the Bat Signal and there they were. One held the door for me. For no other reason then he felt sorry for me I’m sure and wanted to get a closer look at this complete mess on two feet. The rest of them were inside milling around, pretending to shop. Needless to say they all scattered and retreated once they got a good look at me. Another opportunity missed probably.
The best part was I ran into a friend and his question to me was “Rough weekend?” I said “Pneumonia” and skeedaddled as fast as possible. I doubt he believed me. He also probably called his wife on the way home and said “Have you heard from Peg lately, we should probably check on her, I think she’s having issues.”
I should really start to care or I’m going to be the crazy cat lady that lives at the end of the block. The kids will be double dog daring each other to go trick or treating at my house. And I don’t even like cats!!
Here’s to finding the hot guys when all you are is a hot mess.
