Hey, Mister I'm Single — A Guest Post10:01:00 AM
Earlier this week I had the opportunity to talk on the phone with a little girl that I used to babysit while I lived in Texas. She's three years old and rivals me when it comes to sass level which is pretty awesome if you ask me. I miss her loads and heaps.
It took her a little while to realize that she was actually talking to me, but when she did she had a lot of questions for me.
"Why did you have to move away?
"Can we still be best friends?"
What does your room look like?
Do you miss me?"
And then out of nowhere,
"Did you find a man yet?!?!?"
To which I replied, "No.....Have you found a man since I left?"
She laughed and said, "Not yet, Miss Alexis."
Let me tell you, when a three year old questions your love life, it can have an impact. I (obviously) did not take the time to explain to her, that right now I am not looking for men. I'm looking for me.
I go through these phases where I decide, "I am dating myself." Having recently moved, I figured now would be prime time for personal growth and development. Over the course of the "relationship" I evaluate where I am at in terms of accomplishing the goals I have set, I evaluate my self esteem and take the time to remind myself of my worth.
I spend time in public alone, doing things I would typically do if I were dating someone like going to a movie, or to dinner.
There are so many things I want to accomplish in my lifetime, and there is no way I am going to do them if I spend every evening in my bed watching friends, dreaming of the day when David Schwimmer will come and sweep me off my feet. No ma'am.
So I gladly await my next phone call with my little friend. We have oodles to catch up on.
