Feast or Famine

No I’m not going to talk about potatoes again. I’m going to talk about men. Feast or famine is the story of my life, and it seems, not just mine, but all single women.

If I am not in a relationship or dating someone men are scarce as hen’s teeth. (Can’t believe I was able to use that ancient expression!) I sit home more nights than I care to think about.

The flip side of that is let me go on one date with someone that I think I might possibly like, and men are crawling out of the woodwork.

I struggle with juggling men. It makes me crazy. I know lots of women who can juggle three or four men at a time but I am so easily confused and often find myself lost in the Clay Canyons.

I want to get to know someone well enough to know if he has potential, but does that mean I shut the door on everyone else? Or do I just date them all while I’m trying to figure it out? And one other thing, I like sex, I don’t want to date for months trying to figure out which one may be Mr. Right and not get laid.

Is there some type of pheromone that people give off when they are dating/married that attracts other people? Is that why so many people cheat? Because they are given so many more opportunities to visit the candy store when they are in a committed relationship versus when they are single?

I have a dinner date tonight and one tomorrow night. I’m tired just thinking about it, especially since it’s freaking cold and snowing. All I want to do is curl up in bed with a good book.

I know one day I’ll miss this, one day when I’m making dinner and picking Prince Charming’s underwear up off the floor, I’ll wonder, why I didn't stay single. But later, when we are snuggled on the couch and I fit perfectly next to him, I will be thankful once again for the love I finally found.


  1. Ummm trying to figure it out is my line! lol Your not alone in liking sex girlfriend:) Get a day planner, you'll be able to juggle them just fine. And Im sure when you are cuddling with Price Charming, you will not, and I repeat YOU WILL NOT regret giving up being single!!!!

  2. I wish I had some sage advice to offer. All I can suggest is that there is a reason so many get married. The rewards are greater than they are being single.

    Just continue being who you are. Stuff will happen when it happens. No need to rush.

  3. Wow. You're probably right...someday, you'll miss this time. But, hopefully you'll remember it fondly and be glad you never gave up until you found THE ONE.

    I'll date vicariously through you.


Say it, you know you wanna!
