When it Rains, it Pours

Have you ever noticed that when you’re not necessarily looking for something, you get offers for lots of that very something?  Back in my youthful single days, I couldn’t get a date to save my life (I prefer to attribute that to laziness and shyness versus being butt-ugly).

Yet, in the rare event that I would have a psuedo-girlfriend (like I said – this is going back to my youth) other people would express interest in me at the same time.

Fast-forward to 2004/2005. I became single in October and came to the realization that I needed some single time to sort myself out after a 10 year relationship. Then it seemed as if people were just crawling out of the woodwork to date me (or, more often than not, sleep wtih me). I feel like a slab of cheese that’s been aging forever and now everybody thinks I’m finally edible.

Now that I’m seeing somebody (Rich – unofficially for two months this coming Saturday – woo hoo!), it’s getting worse. Last week a guy who was seeing a friend of mine (unbenknownst to me) sent me an email after seeing a photo of me at my friend’s place! EEK! How awkward was that when I told my friend about it (not realizing that they had dated)!?!?!?!

And then yesterday, I was on the phone with one of Regina’s nearest and dearest friends (who I also know from having lunch together a few times) and she said she had heard that I broke up with Matt and had “the perfect guy for me”. So even while I’m sad and feeling unattractive and distracted, people are still trying to either hook up with me or hook me up with other people.

It’s funny…the expression is “when it rains, it pours”. And right now, with everything going on with Regina – I feel like I’ve been standing in the rain, shivering, dripping and looking (and feeling) my worst – yet for me it’s suddently raining men (Hallelujah)

    Quite possibly, when you came “back on the market,” you were at an age when guys who are a bit more mature and know a bit more about life were there and equipped to realize your real worth.

    I agree with Will, you’re at a good age. Well, and it doesn’t hurt matters that you’re just to damend cute. 😉

    Everybody wants what they can’t have. I had a similar experience after a five year relationship. I was single for three months, which was too short a time I know, and then as soon as I started dating someone else suddenly all of these guys made themselves available.

    When will you just accept that you are and have always been a real hottie 😀 ? Stop blushing. No, really :D.
