The importance of branching out

10 Aug

The other night while at a party, I played wing woman to my longtime friend BigBlueEyes. Being single and ready to mingle, we did just that. It was all great fun despite the fact that no one offered to buy us drinks (I blame the recession because I refuse to accept the claim that chivalry is dead).

It was only after catching up with most of the people at the party that BigBlueEyes noticed something which somehow managed to escape my attention. It must have been the vodka sprites because otherwise my radar would never have missed such and obvious, in-your-face realization.

BigBlueEyes: Did you notice that of all the guys here tonight, you’ve dated 5 of them?
Me: O. M. G. No… I did not notice this. But now that you mentioned it, I really DID date 5 of these guys. I think I need to buy myself another drink….

Help me…

What does that even mean!??!?!!

5 GUYS!!!! 5!!!!!!! All in the same bar at the same time! How does this many any logical sense???

When the realization finally penetrated my skull I was struck with the possibility that there may be something wrong with me. All of those guys were relatively normal (meaning only 1 out of the 5 had a cameo on my blog). So that must mean something is amiss.

Maybe I am too picky? Is it so wrong for me to strive for the best? I think not. Its not my fault that they failed to capture my special attention.

Or… Maybe I should probably branch out more which I don’t think is possible because those 5 guys were pretty branched out to begin with by nature of the fact that they were not from my tight knit bubble of a community.

I know I am overreacting and that the reason I am not dating any of those 5 guys is because they just weren’t right for me for a myriad of reasons. It was just so IRONIC that 5 potential relationships were all in the same room with me at the same time sipping the same beer and laughing simultaneously.

I wondered if they knew…

Do guys talk about this? Is that a thing? Oh no I can just see it now…

Mr.1: See that girl over there? We went out for a while. Cute no?
Mr.2: What?! No way thats hilarious I went out with her last week!
Mr.3: HAHA are you guys serious? I just took her out last night…this is awkward.
Mr.4: This is insane! What’s wrong with this chick? I took her out to lunch on Thursday!
Mr.5: HAHA jokes on you guys because I brought her here tonight.
All in unison: HAHAHAHA

All the while they are probably thinking the same thing that I am right now… WTF!?!

Is this my life? Is this what its come to? Having to bump into every guy I’ve dated in the past 2 months all at once? IS THAT NORMAL?????????????

No…No it is not. As BigBlueEyes can attest, this is in fact extremely abnormal, disturbing and concerning.

At the rate I’m going, who knows how many guys I have dated will be at the next party…. 10? 14? Oh the horror…I can’t bear to think about it.

To sum:
I need to date outside the box.

    What are the chances of that happening? Gotta be slim to none! I thought I just read another post that said the guys you date were leaving the country or joining the Army. I guess not all of them are!

    I would like to thankyou for such an enlightening post. I dont by and large reply on blogs as I wish to lurk and read. However your style of literature is uncomplicated to understand, I love the fact that it is clear and to the point. I will make sure that I mail your blog to my acquaintances as I am certain they will not only like reading your post but also find it extremely instructive.
