OK, guys I'm making a special blog post now because I don't have to be anywhere for another hour or two and because I want to tell you about a friend of mine who is at work now won't know anything about this post until it's already out there in blog land. lol! (Hopefully, she'll still be my friend when she finds out!)
I'm not going to use her real name...yet. For now we'll call her Lonely Girl because I want her to start a blog about her dating experiences and also because I have always been a closet Gossip Girl fan. (Don't judge me!) In the series finale of Gossip Girl, Lonely Boy got what he wanted and married the love of his life and that's what I want for my friend.
I want her to find the love of her life! And...I want her to share the stories of all the toads she has to date on her way to the alter. Trust me, her stories are good! And by good I mean really, really bad...and funny.
A while back someone told Lonely Girl that she needs to branch out and be more open to different kinds of guys. You know that whole, "If you continue to date the same kind of guys you'll always get the same results" lecture that we've all gotten at least once in our lives. So, she decided to be a little more open about the guys she would talk to. You know that whole, "You can't judge a book by it's cover" lecture we've all gotten.
As she was telling me about this and the first time she stepped outside of her comfort zone and agreed to a date with a guy she normally wouldn't have dated I came up with the blog idea....between fits of laughter!
We talked about how she could present it and what to call the blog and how there were plenty of other girls out there who are going on the same kind of wacko dates and how they could all bond and share stories and know that they weren't alone. I even offered to be her wingman.
I'm an awesome wingman!
Anyway, that was all a couple of months ago and she still hasn't started a blog. She says that it's because she isn't good at writing. I told her that she doesn't have to be, I mean, just look at me! I don't let not being a good writer stop me from blogging! I also told her to just tell the story as if we're all in front of her and she's talking to us instead of typing it out in a blog post. She still said no. I told her she didn't have to use her real name. She said that she would just let me tell her stories. (She's so going to regret that!)
My friend is in her early thirties, she's beautiful, intelligent and one of the most genuinely nice people I've ever met. Someday, some lucky guy is going to snap her up, but until then, I don't understand why we can't all laugh at the losers...uummm...I mean...read about the gentlemen she meets.
If she starts her blog here's a little example of what we'll all be reading about....
First there's the guy who stood her up because he got arrested and was in jail. She has no idea why he got arrested. She's just glad he didn't ask her for bail money or ever call her again.
And....she didn't tell me about this one until last night....
When we were at the Medieval Festival in November one of the guys in costume asked for her number and she gave it to him! They talked and texted everyday and even went out...until he dumped her three days before Christmas because he thought she was taking things too seriously and he has commitment problems.
Yes, my friend dated and got dumped by a 41 year old unemployed, skirt wearing, commitment phobe guy who is really, REALLY into LARPing (live action role playing) I just can't imagine why she didn't tell me about it! lol!
OMG! OMG! OMG! That guy is probably in a photo or two I took that day! Do you guys want to see him? I'll have to see if I've got photos of him and use them to blackmail my friend --- Start a blog or I post the pictures! lol!
Anyway, wouldn't you guys love to read about her dating adventures?
Leave your comments here and we can really put the pressure on her to get that blog started!
