So last night after my alumni association board meeting, I went to diner at Carmine’s to celebrate a friend’s birthday. During the course of conversation, everyone was providing updates about their relationships; in my case lack thereof. It’s sad to say, but it’s been almost a year since I’ve been on a “REAL” date and about 2 years since I’ve been in a relationship. Everyone always assumes that I’m dating someone. Hardly anyone ever asks me out. I’m not really sure why that is. For a while I thought if I maybe lost some weight, men would find me more attractive. Then someone told me that I could be intimidating and don’t seem very approachable. I’m not really sure I buy that, but among other things, I’m trying to smile more. Whatever the reason, I’m not meeting enough single men. So to increase my odds, I may sign up for match.com sometime this spring. Quite a few of my girlfriends are using the service. Their results are mixed, I still might just give it a try. If nothing else, I’ll get some interesting stories to tell.
