Referring to my previous post, Man of Your Dreams, some folks took issue with my musing. In that post, I shared a prevalent observation which was that many in my generation are looking for the perfect, got it all together other, the “designer spouse,” – the one!
And yes, I agreed they could be found in one place – in our dreams and fantasies.
Maybe that was too much. Was it?
In regards to that post, a close friend who was bothered by it asked a great question. In this post, I share some things we discussed.
My friend wanted to know –
Where do you draw the line between standards and accepting something less than what you hoped?
Well, I don’t know. I have no idea. I confess, I’m a romantic. But, somewhere between life and a hard place, I lost my mojo. I lost my M.O
I’m no Moto-Moto
I’m guessing you “love birds” are making last minute arrangements and wrapping up on your romance strategies with bags of roses, rings, necklaces, planned lush dinners, proposals…!
And then on Valentine’s day its…
Girls and free drinks, Singles and a few drinks, Guys and two things, Cuddles and Chick Flicks, Breakups and Karaokes, “will you marry me” and diamond rings, dates talking pet peeves…you know, the usual.
And then, there is “US.” Singles with little or no prospects who can’t stand the commercialization of love and loneliness.
I have been wondering why some of “us” who have “the goods” are single and boy do I have some musings to share with you.
