I was wondering what to write about this week and then I thought to myself that here I am a middle aged guy, the so called eternal bachelor who at this late age has decided to get married. I didn’t give up. Doesn’t anyone want to hear about it? Probably not, but so what, you are going to anyway.
Don’t Give Up
So, there I was a young man, watching the years go by and going on date after date, unsuccessful date after unsuccessful date and about to give up. Did I give up? Well, I took a break from it all as I wrote in the introduction to my book. Kill me now!
But the break became a loooong break, too long! But I decided I needed to go on the search for the holy grail, to boldly go where others had gone before.
So, I took out my notepad and wrote out my grocery list of the woman I am looking for. Hey, if Cindy Lauper and Shania Twain have lists, then so can I. Granted they are better looking and have more money than I have, but it is said money can’t buy you love. or that is what the Beetles drummed into me.
Armed with my list I once again went on date after date. Her hair is too short, she does not have a PhD, she has a screw loose, she did not come dressed properly to the date and many more excuses, some of which you can read about in my first book.
The years went by and I began lamenting as to where all the quality girls were and why I was not meeting them. I was not getting any younger or was I? The girls in their early thirties are not really approachable anymore. If I was Daniel Craig, it may be a different story, but let us face it, I am not.
I wanted to give up. I have lived over five decades as a bachelor, I know the drill. I can live another five more. maybe I should give up.
A friend of mine said to me, “Don’t give up” and she told me that I must approach women on Jdate and simply throw out my grocery list. You mean you want me to date idiots? Well that is not what she meant, she meant to ease up on my list.
So I did. I approached some females who normally would not pass my filters and one of them sent me her phone number. Guess what! I am going to marry her!
My message for you is not to wait. Don’t give up. Love will come but you need to help it along. Ease up. Live long and prosper.
Get out and date, my friends!
