“I must learn to love the fool in me the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries.” ~Theodore Isaac Rubin
Do you guys follow The Single Woman? If not, you should because she is amazing. Think Carrie Bradshaw amazing. She has great advice for us single gals...actually she just has great advice in general. Whether you are single or not.
I saw this quote yesterday in her post, I just love it! Absolutely love it. I know I judge myself to harshly sometimes. I know I talk waytomuch or say things that don't make any sense...I cry at those dang Sara Mclaughlin commercials and that self-control thing...let's just say that Rocky Road ice cream didn't eat itself, okay!
All those things though...they make ME who I am.
And that's just that.
I don't know if it's because I live in the South, or because I ain't gettin' any younger or because everyone around me is either getting married or having babies...pretty sure it's all of the above, but I get asked DAILY and I mean DAILY, are you dating someone? Why aren't you dating someone?
I have blogged about it before. It's frustrating getting asked those questions. Trust me if I knew the answer, don't you think I would be dating someone and/or married.
Yesterday, a lady told me(and it's not just her, here lately I've been told this several times) dating at your age, it isn't easy.
When did I become the age where YOUR AGE was a factor.
I am 27. Is that really an age, where dating isn't easy??
It's not that I don't get asked out on dates, I mean...that eighty year old man who gave me the Worther's Original candy asked me on a date. See...I get asked. Might not be in my particular age range of dating, but still.
I was asked.
I will admit, her telling me that kinda of made me sad and discouraged me a little and made me wonder, maybe I am being too picky.
Then I saw this...and all hope was restored.
God knows what he's doing. So, all the times that I questioned maybe if I did this differently or said this or actually went on a second date with that guy...it would have worked out and I wouldn't still be single....GOD knows, and he has the perfect man for me to marry.
He won't be perfect, I'm not perfect...but he'll be perfect for me.
