I was talking with a girlfriend about a mutual friend of ours, one that we think is great!
He's the nicest guy you could ever meet.
Style could use some improvement, but then again I think that about 90% of men.
Here's the thing, he's still single and doesn't know why.
Which seems to be the case for most men. The great guy that everyone loves, yet he can't find that special girl.
Grant it, I know there are two sides to every coin. You know, they're great to all of their friends, but in a relationship.. well to be nice, they're not so great.
So as my girlfriend and I talked about my friend a little bit more in depth, I knew there was another side to this coin.
Then it came out, "He's afraid of commitment."
My thoughts, which I proudly kept to myself... oh wait, I didn't, once again I blurted my opinion out.. "ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME? SEE A therapist, OR A DATING COACH and get your sh*t worked out!!!"
Ok yep, I yelled that one out.
Seriously this guy is great, so great that it angers me that he's still single.
He's getting up in age, so the clock has overly clicked on his behalf. So to be frank, he doesn't have time to waste.
Gravity isn't being so tender to his face and unless he chooses to get some botox, that face will continue to drop like droopy the dog.
Really this has me pissed off.
My friend is great, so why doesn't he just deal with it, move on and find the perfect woman?
God only knows.
Just today, my parents celebrated their 35th Wedding Anniversary and shockingly, they're still crazy in love.
But guess what, they didn't get there by just coasting through their life and marriage for that matter.
It's required guts, commitment and resolve to both grow and grow up for that matter.
Now, let's break this down for you.
It's another year if you haven't noticed, will you stay single again this year?
Will you wait on the sidelines hoping love smacks you in the face?
Oh and forget about relying on your friends advice and opinion about you. They're not in an intimate relationship with you, so they don't have a freakin clue!
Time's up. Your excuses suck. Man up. Be the man you're meant to be.
Got commitment issues? Get the F*&k over it. Call me, email me, we'll work through it, but don't stay a miserable mess another year.
Are you the great guy friends swear by, but you can't meet the right girl? Get out and put yourself out there and quit b*tching about why you hate dating.
Instead get more real with yourself and talk about the honesty part of you hating being alone. I assure you your loneliness is far worse then the dating world.
Get accountable, take responsibility and make 2015 a great year. Not a year of excuses.
