Awww....I feel a little bad. My good girlfriend called me last week and invited me to go to an after work singles mixer with her and I said no. I know. I know. I'm a bad friend. I actually really did consider going and knew we would have a good time I just...wasn't in the mood. Yes I am still single and am definitely open to meeting new guys, but it's kinda like not a priority for me right now. Don't get me wrong. If Mr. Right knocked on my door I wouldn't turn him away!! And I am also quite aware that I probably won't meet Mr. Right sitting in my house waiting for him to knock on the door. But that's just it. I'm not sitting around waiting;I'm just living my life. I'm actually happy and content even though I am currently single. It does happen. It is possible. Go figure!!! My good girlfriend...not so much. Her single status is a real source of pain and disappointment for her and I can totally relate. I have been there. I'm just thankfully not there right now. Which is probably why I didn't go to the singles mixer. I preferred to stay home and finally clean off my desk so I could get some writing done. Plus I'd been meaning to wash and dry my pillows and this was the weekend!!!
I really do believe in being proactive when it comes to meeting men--getting yourself out there, going to events where guys will be (Basketball games, golf tournaments, parties and of course singles mixers). But I also believe that sometimes some things are more important and if you are not doing what you need to be doing for yourself and taking care of your business, whatever that business may be, you're probably not going to meet anybody worthwhile anyway. So you're probably better off cleaning off your desk or washing your pillows.
Anyway my good girlfriend decided not to go to the event either and I was kinda disappointed in her. I mean you have to live life from where you are. And she is obviously at the place where she would really like to meet a nice man. In my opinion, she should have went to the mixer and I told her so. She probably would have had more luck if she went without me anyway, I mean we are grown women!!! We are not teenagers who need to do everything together, especially not looking for men. Duh!
Still, I apologized for not going with her and told her to let me know when there is another single's mixer. I even told her I might go with her the next time...but I didn't make any promises.
