I aim for one monthly activity for myself but it doesn’t always happen. When I go out looking cute, I see no one. When I go out last minute with leggings, a hoodie and a baseball cap, I see everyone.
When it comes to the dating game I’m not the best at reading signals. For instance the other day I had a chance to get out briefly and it wasn’t to a doctor’s appointment or to the grocery store.
On my radar I noticed a handsome man that caught my attention. I’m over with searching the ring finger, because that isn’t always accurate. Was the nice smile and hello just him being nice? Or was this a signal? I speak and smile at everyone when I’m out, so maybe it was just the norm.
Don’t tell me to trust my gut because in the past my gut almost had me dating Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I figured if it’s meant to be then it’s meant to be.
I continued to enjoy myself. I noticed that he was approaching me again. This is when I wanted to run and hide. I needed a pick up line quick, but I had nothing! I didn’t even have time to do a google search.
I even called on Jesus and He must have been helping someone else because He didn’t answer me. When the mystery man approached me again he made a comment about the weather. Then someone called my name and my mystery man vanished.
I was like a deer in headlights, or a field goal kicker that missed the winning field goal. I was a hot mess. Why was it so hard to think of something to say?
My one moment of freedom wasn’t entirely wasted. I did enjoy being out, but I failed dating 101 big time.
Who has a good pick up line or conversation starter???
