Whats a Single Girl Want? Dental Floss.

September 7, 2011 in Hit or Miss...kinda like my dating life.

It’s no secret.

I’m single.  Way single.  (Pause with blank stare.)  No, really.  I’m single.

And I’m with you.  What man in his right mind would pass up a chance at this non-cooking, don’t-clean-unless-Mother’s-coming-over, will-go-into-hock-for-heels, has-actually-cursed-in-the-church-parking-lot hot mess?

You’d be surprised.

Anyway.  I ran across this little article online.  I mostly read just what was in bold.  I’m a busy girl…not much time for the small stuff.  (Hence, why some men in my past didn’t make the cut.)

5 Things Single Women Hate to Hear

Let a sister, albeit a single sister, break this down for you.

1.  “Maybe you’re not trying hard enough.”
Hmph.  Maybe that’s it.  I just would really like to meet one without Justin Bieber’s bangs or one with children younger than me.  Never thought of that as trying too hard.

2.  “Wear more makeup.”
Seriously?  So, all those men who have said they hate lipstick on wine glasses and smudges on their white shirts were lying?  Bastards.  I knew it.

3.  “Get back out there!”
Uh, where?

4.  “You’re too picky.”
Maybe.  However, while men with summer teeth (you know…some are there, some are not) are great, I’m sure…I’m gonna hold out and shoot just a little higher.  I’d like to find dental floss in his medicine cabinet when I’m snooping around in there.

5.  “Tone it down a notch.”
This just sounds way too much like Mother and crap she spewed at me when I was younger in that…that…voice.  I don’t even know what this means.

There you have it.  I’ve heard every last one of these statements over and over and over again.  I’m always open to suggestions (not really), but for the love of God, please know what you’re talking about.

I’ll just keep wishin’.  And hopin’.  And thinkin’.  And prayin.

Hmmmm….I had an immediate response to the “Makeup Statement” but the more I think about it the more confused I get. Back when I was teaching Sunday School, I would always tell my junior high and high school girls that guys really do like girls that don’t wear or need to wear a lot of make-up. I still believe this is true but it is probably because I have always seen this from the viewpoint of a single, high school boy….since that was the last time I was single. Maybe in the adult single lifestyle there is a whole different perspective to this that I have never realized.

Totally get it. And yes, things are a bit different.

Back in HS for most of us girls, he just needed to have a cool car and that $2 to get us in the Friday night dance and that was enough to make our hearts flutter.

Silly, huh?

I’m single too. And we live kinda near each other I think. Let’s go scoping for men with dental floss sometime 🙂
