Since moving here to Milwaukee, I've been very lucky to get some great girlfriends to hang out with so quickly. Melissa, Rebecca, Colleen. My landlord took my under her wing and introduced to Erin, Jessica and my new girly doctor. I know, TMI!!
Every time us ladies get together we always and I mean always start talking about our dating trails and tribulations. We talk about how picky we are. The things we wish guys would do and things WE DON'T.
Melissa and I went to Chicago over the weekend. We went to dinner, met people and talked a bunch. Now, Melissa and I have a similar situation. We both moved to Milwaukee for our careers not knowing anyone. We both had relationships recently end.(When I say recently I mean within the last year) Let's get back on track. So we were talking about a guy she used to date and she made this comment about his hygiene. I laughed hysterically. It was so funny, and then I chimed in with "Oh my gawd...we are so going to be single for the rest of our lives!" Now it's just kind of a joke we have.
I started thinking about something last night. How does anyone ever find someone? Seriously? I mean, your talking about timing in each person's life, if they're even attracted to each other, if they click!! There are so many factors. Of course, attraction is I think the initial factor. Then you got try to make the other stuff work out.
I know some of my girlfriends are PICKY too!!! They always seem to find something that bothers them. Some of it is major stuff. His outlook on life, goals, personality, and personal chemistry. Some of it is also surface stuff. His teeth, hair, habits, how he talks, he never laughs, he's dry.
I feel like sometimes my group of girlfriends are in a reality version of "Sex and the City" If you could hear the stuff we talk about and analyze!! Oh and we analyze everything!!!
So at what point does picky and choosy become overboard? It's not like we are on a quest to find Mr. GQ 2008. We all want attractive men with a good head on their shoulders. Not to crazy in the head!
And we've all noticed how small the Milwaukee dating scene is. I went on a date with a guy named..."Roy". And "Roy" had an ex-girlfriend and ex-fling and me...a girl he has gone a date with all in the same restaurant at the same time!! Yikes!! Now if that isn't uncomfortable. Oh and you know what? He still wants to "date"(sleep with) a bunch of different girls. I think he has a commitment/boredom issue with women. Sorry I'm off point again...but if Milwaukee is this small and so many people our age are off and married...where are we going to find a catch? Is there enough to go around? Do we need to start finding guys from Chicago?
