I have met so many fabulous people at my new job! I mean FABULOUS! They are not only fun to work with, but the best part is that the ones I sit next to have the same sense of humor as I do…you know, dry, witty and very VERY sarcastic…and this makes work FUN.
I was having lunch with some of them on Friday and one of the guys made this comment to me, he said, “it’s no wonder you are still single, guys like to be needed and it is very clear that you don’t “need” a guy.”
I was shocked!
He was right…I don’t “need” a guy…but I "want" one.
So, we carried on with the conversation a little more…you know in a very funny, sarcastic way. He got all “girly” and giggled at everything I said…you know in a way that girls are supposed to when they want to get the attention of a guy.
Yeah…that’s not my style.
My style is to show the guys that come across my path, that I am a put together independent woman. I have a great job that I love. I can support myself and my family. I own my own house. I have my shit together (thanks to 4 years of therapy). I have a great ex-husband who is a terrific father. I have two boys that are at a stage where they realize that it is a good possibility that I will be in a relationship one day with someone other than their dad.
These qualities are what makes me…me!
Apparently, these qualities scare men off.
So here’s the deal. I had an ah ha moment this weekend. And here it is…
I guess I do need a man in my life!
You know what made me come to this conclusion?
Here it is…
I hate my showerhead!
Yep…that’s what made me realize that I NEED a man in my life.
So here’s the deal…I need a man to come over and fix it for me.
It has been driving me crazy for months now, and I’m afraid to take it apart and fix it, at the risk of breaking it.
I could wait for my brother to come to town and fix it, but I don’t think I can wait that long. You know, I’m an instant gratification kind of girl!
So if your single, a handyman, have your own tools, are emotionally stable, and available at all this week, let me know…I will even buy you dinner after!
Will it help if I giggle and bat my eyes when I ask, would that be more appealing to you?
