Times Up

I have to say the Year of Yes started out with a bang. I had a guy ask me out three days after we declared 2008 the Year of Yes. Also, on that day another guy asked me out. THEN another guy asked me out a week after guy #1 and guy #2 asked me out! Can you believe it? Three different guys asked me out on dates. Oh, and these weren’t bad guys, they were cool guys. It wasn’t like I was gritting my teeth to say yes. I was saying yes happily! In my eyes, it appeared that the Year of Yes had been a fantastic decision! I was starting to think I had actually stirred myself in the right direction for dating.

This is a quote, rather long quote, from a post I wrote last year. One year ago, Holly and I declared 2008 the Year of Yes. We agreed that for the whole year we would say yes to all dates that came our way. Well time is up on YOY. Since I haven’t chatted about YOY in a few months, I thought I would do a quick recap of the past year.

Relationship Status at beginning- Single
Relationship Statue at end- Single

THE END…

As you can see YOY wasn’t quite the success I had intended. Sure, I got a couple dates, but nothing big. Ok, so I did date Guy #3 for some time, but other than that nothing. I have better success when I’m not going around saying yes to everything. I suppose next year I could say no to everything. I’m kidding, no need to flood my comment box. Who knows what next year will bring, but YOY was fun.

Remember what YOY got me? Crazy boy who asked me out via text then got all mad when I couldn't make the first date he threw out.

Yeahhhhhhhhhhh.

Status at beginning of YOY: single
Status at end of YOY: single

You're not the only one.

It's okay Lindsy.i didn'tfollow the rules very well, as you know and actually did say "NO" a couple of times! I think it was my year of "Yes, if I want too..."

Being single is tough. Mr Right is out there...somewhere. Don't give up hope.

and it's okay to say no also.

Haha, yes I think you should do the year of no.

That reminds me of the Seinfeld episode where Kramer snubs Jerry's ex and she ends up liking him.

George is like, "I tried that once. I snubbed for a whole year. Nothing. Every woman I saw, I snubbed. You never saw people so pleased."
