So it’s Valentine’s Day this week. Are you celebrating? It might be obvious that I am not. Don’t get me wrong, a small gift from my parents is always welcome (hint, hint), but it’s just another day, except everyone’s celebrating their love and I don’t have a love in my life.
Maybe I was crazy thinking Match.com would be the answer to my never ending search for love, but I kind of thought it might lead to something. I’ve heard so many people talk about how wonderful it is. How they’ve met their boyfriends/girlfriends/husbands/wives . . . even just a friend.
Me? I’ve been on three lame dates. I’ve sent well over a hundred different guys an email. And you know what? Most of them ignore me. And I really don’t know why. It’s making me feel like something is wrong with me.
Then there are the guys I talk to for awhile. Then they just stop. For no reason. Out of the blue. It makes me crazy. Men are incomprehensible.
Oh, and lest I forget the guy who seemed kind of normal and nice. We chatted. He said he thought we’d be better as friends than boyfriend/girlfriend. This was fine with me. I can use a friend. After all of this you know what he did? He sexted me. At least I think it was a sext. I’m not exactly well versed in that field. Needless to say I’ll be ignoring that message.
There is one other guy. He seems nice, but he’s been stringing me along for a couple months. He has had a lot going on, but is it weird he hasn’t wanted to meet?
Maybe by next Valentine’s Day I’ll have some more love in my life. Or maybe I should face facts and get a cat.
Then again, I could just make more of these pretzels because I am in love with them. They are so easy to make, and can easily be made gluten free with gluten free pretzels, but there’s something about their sweet and salty, crunchy goodness that keeps me going back for more every single day. They’d be a great gift for your Valentine, or perhaps an even better way to drown your single girl sorrows while watching a movie. You know which option I’ll be using
