This morning on the radio the DJs were chatting about where couples have met. An article in Glamour Magazine came out this week breaking down the places/ways couples have met. Here’s the breakdown…
13%- Night Clubs/ Bar
3%- Dating Service
1%- Dating Service
I don’t know if I should cry or jump for joy after hearing this breakdown. Let’s start with the positive, since it’s good to be positive. I have heard being a positive person is very attractive to the opposite sex. Do you like how I make things up?
Positive #1- I am going back to school next week. There’s a decent chance I could meet someone in class. I’ll be in class two nights a week for a year, that’s plenty of time to meet someone.
Positive # 2- I work at a huge company with lots of single guys.
Positive # 3- 34% met because of friends/family. I have great friends.
Positive # 4- I attend a huge church with a large size singles group.
Positive # 5- I still have a 1% chance of meeting Prince Charming while walking down the street.
Ok, now let’s be realistic! I don’t want to say negative because that is negative, and being a negative person is not attractive. I’m not making that one up; I think it’s true. But I have learned that a single person needs to be realistic; otherwise you’ll be waiting for an overweight fairy to come change you into a smoking hotty, where you meet a McDreamy type guy, and lose one of your new Jimmy Choo shoes the overweight fairy just gave you! Come on, let’s be realistic.
Realism #1- Last week I went to orientation for school. I would have to disagree with my decent chance of meeting someone at school.
Realism # 2- I will not be meeting someone at work, moving on…
Realism # 3- I have heaps of singles friends who do not like to play matchmaker.
Realism #4- I attend church with a large size singles group who are friends with each other. But they are great friends!
Realism #5- I ONLY have a 1% chance of meeting Prince Charming while walking down the street. I have better chances of meeting the real McDreamy on the street!
Good thing I have my Single Trips to look forward to every year! Shoot the rate I’m going, I will see the whole world before I get married. I don’t think that’s a bad thing, because it assures me I will have lots of fun stories for my kids to hear!
