Picture with me if you will, there’s an attractive lady who would love to be out dating, enjoying the company of another, but instead she finds herself sitting and waiting. She can’t figure out why no one will ask her out on those dinner dates that she hears her other girlfriends talk about. Is she less attractive? No, she’s at the gym and is told several times throughout the week what a beauty she is. Maybe it’s her personality, is she just too boring for a guy to invest a night to spend with her? Well that can’t be true either because the company she keeps is full of life and so there’s no way she’d be welcomed by them if she were just the dull bore.
Despite how much she tries to figure it out, it remains to be the perpetual mystery that lingers over her head. Little does our attractive, friendly girlfriend know that it really is her thats keeping her home alone at night. Why is that? You see while she may not be getting the dinner dates she’s been hoping for, she has however denied 2 coffee dates just last week, a running date with a guy from work and catching that new movie with the guy from the gym.
Grant it, I think when people are dating that guys should be asking women out to dinner. It’s romantic, it’s polite and it creates the environment to actually converse and get to know the other person. However it’s not the end all be all when it comes to dating. So while Ms. Attractive has her head buried in the sand, her friends are all out there dating and dating a lot for that matter.
Sometimes our perspective as to how we think and perceive that things should work out can hinder us from actually living and participating with life. I’ve heard of girls who have turned down numerous coffee’s because the guy wasn’t who they thought would be the “it” guy for them. Are you kidding me? You’ve just missed out on getting to know a potentially incredible person. So you may not walk the aisle with them, however you could find a life long friend, your next business partner or the best friend of your future forever.
For those of you sitting around and waiting let me tell you. YOU ARE MISSING OUT ON LIFE! Get off the couch and quit watching life on tv and actually get out there and create the life you’ve been waiting for!!!
