Call Me Picky

Image result for Lonely


My friends call me picky, and maybe they’re right.  It’s entirely possible I’ve lost the ability to settle for anything less than exactly what I want.  I may be anxious, and I may get lonely at times, but I’m not built for settling.

After 2 weeks of tindering back and forth, I met the sheriff last night.  Again I was reminded why online meetings just don’t seem to work for me.   First, he didn’t look like he did in the pictures.  He wasn’t ugly, but I didn’t find him attractive either.  I showed up in a short plaid skirt with knee high black leather boots, and a black blouse with a deep V neck line.  My hair was straightened; my makeup carefully applied, and I had a hint of perfume dabbed on the inside of my wrists.  I dressed to impress — it was a first date after all.

HE showed up in a pair of ill-fitted jeans and a car t-shirt.  I get that some men don’t care about their sense of style, but it is something I notice.  I find a man who can dress himself up to be extremely sexy.  Clothing aside, I didn’t find our conversation to be overly stimulating either.  He was nice, but he was boring.  He swore a lot, and made constant sexual inuendos.  Don’t get me wrong, I am guilty of the odd witty sexual inuendo, but I don’t base my conversation around them.    Basically the date was mediocre.  He was a decent enough guy, and I’m sure for someone else he will make a great partner.  Just not for me.

Picky?  Sure, if it needs to have a name, call me picky.  I’ve lived through a divorce, a stalker, and an abuser.  I think I’ve earned the right to be picky.  Loneliness can be hard, but being with the wrong person is even harder.

  1. Darlin, the Sharif sounds like a total bell end 😕 (Do you know that expression in Canada!?!) It’s not a compliment 😂 I’m so sorry it was so disappointing for you 😢 You’re not picky, I can’t imagine any woman in the world would view that as a gratifying first date-total bell end. You will find someone amazing. I can tell you with 100% conviction, it isn’t him. So sorry hun. Hugs of sisterly solidarity sent your way 😘💖❤

      Lol no I’ve never heard that expression, but I like it. I’m 100% certain it isn’t him as well. Another on bites the dust

    Considering how you looked last night, a middling guy in shabby jeans is not for you. What an idiot that guy was. Hold out!

  3. I prefer to say I have discriminating taste. Life’s too short to be lonely when you aren’t alone. Don’t settle.

  4. I agree, it’s good to be picky, there’s no point in being in a relationship with someone you’re not attracted to!

    Also agree about dress sense, I mean you don’t have to show up in a suit, but I find it off-putting if they’ve made no effort whatsoever.

      Exactly. I’m not asking for Mr. GQ either, but a dress shirt and nice jeans would be nice.
