Mr. Right are you out there?

Saturday, August 4

Okay, I told myself I would never do this. But, it seems like a reasonably easy task. I want to find a suitable suitor for my friend. She is an attractive, friendly, intelligent, educated woman. It shouldn't be hard to find a compatable sort for her, right? I want to go the conventional, old fashioned way. She's already tried the high tech way and it resulted in disaster. It made for great storytelling over a few glasses of wine, but it stopped there. And it wasn't for lack of trying. I think she reviewed 6 thousand profiles and the cream of the crop turned out to be an impotent, incontinent, overly frugal man whose ex wife suggested he stop seeing her. I guess it may work for some but not for my friend. I commend her for trying and putting herself out there. But let's face it, I know a whole lot of attractive, eligible women and very few men. They've got to be out there. But where are they?
I met my husband through friends. As a matter of fact we were good friends first before we started dating. That's my approach with this. I'd like to try and introduce my friend to men with whom I think she'd enjoy a friendship and the powers that be can take it from there.
Anyway, I'd love to hear from you if you have any thoughts or suggestions for me and my friend.
Wish me luck;)

I met my husband when I was really into myself. I was proud of myself for having taken a big step toward my own happiness (moving to a new city on the other side of the country), had taken up a new hobby just because (stained glass), was generally trying new things, meeting new people. I met hubby at a weekend retreat and things grew from there.

My advice? Shake things up. Cultivate the feeling of reckless "nothing to lose". Your friend should start collecting new experiences. Her awakened sense of passion, genuine personal joy, will broadcast who she really is, and attract someone who is drawn to her beacon of unique qualities. Joy and confidence are contagious. In the meantime, she will feel like a kid again, saturated in wonderment, like the universe if full of infinite possibilities.

Best of Luck! :)

I LOVE this...what a wonderful friend you are! As I have been married far too long to know any eligible bachelors I can't imagine where to begin to meet men!
I have 2 sons that have gf's but my oldest son has been a serial dater! A bit committment phobic...I am always telling him to settle down, think of the future, maybe this new gal will be the one. He has been dating her for 6 mos. which is good for him!

Hi, I saw your link through Turkey Feathers and wanted to say, I love what you've done to decorate your blog! In response to your post, I've heard that the very best way to meet someone is to become involved in groups that attract people who enjoy doing the very same things you enjoy where common interests can easily be found and shared and where there is no pressure to have anything more than a friendship until you really get to know the people you are with. Sometimes the fear of dating makes people feel unnatural and they don't get to show off who they really are or they try too hard and people are put off, so I agree with your other reader, let loose, and enjoy being in places where people can see who you really are. And above all, play hard to get because men love a challenge, they love being the one in pursuit, and they work harder when they know they can't take you for granted!
