In All Fairness to...


I know you’re out there – somewhere. I just can’t find you, but I digress. I know there are good men out there who are interested in getting to know women, who know what they want out of a relationship, who have learned from past mistakes, who have got their act together, etc. etc. For those guys, I say kudos to you and I sincerely hope you find yourself a good woman... like me, for instance!

Of course with me, you’d have to be able to tolerate a girl who enjoys the “old lady” hobby of cross stitch. No, it’s not crochet. Nor is it knitting. And it’s definitely not macramé. Cross Stitch. Remember it. You’ll get more points if you do!

I could stretch the truth a little and *say* I’m in my 30’s. After all, that’s what everyone tells me. Call it good genes (People used to say the same about my mother, too.) But hey I’m not. I could also say I’m fit. But I’m not. LOLOL However, I am not grossly overweight either. Needy? Nada. Sensitive. Heck yeah. What woman isn’t? Let’s see – what else is wrong with me? I’m blind as a bat without glasses. Oh yeah, I have a sarcastic sense of humor (could be good or bad) and if you ask my opinion, better be prepared to hear it.

I could list out all my good traits… but really, what fun is that??

I met my husband via an online dating site and I know what you mean about sifting out the undesirables... so many of the men on those sites are there for the wrong reasons :)

My husband encourages my hobbies... So I guess I found a winner and I do hope that you do too.

Just for a giggle you should post that on an online dating site and see what type of response you get - Sometimes posting an honest down to earth profile gets you exactly what you want.

I hope that one day you find your winner.

My DH doesn't know it, but reading your blog makes me appreciate him much more! You'll have to meet him sometime. Maybe you'll think I'm nuts though.....

If these are your bad traits, I'd say you're doing pretty well!

LOLOL. I understand your statement "No, it’s not crochet. Nor is it knitting. And it’s definitely not macramé. Cross Stitch." Everytime I take out my work my husband says "You have started knitting"!!!! aaaarrrggghhh, ppllleeeaaasse, IT IS CROSS STITCH!!!!
I love your sense of humour

ROFL at the comment "No, it’s not crochet. Nor is it knitting. And it’s definitely not macramé. Cross Stitch." I manage to further screw with people's minds because I also crochet and quilt. Its amusing seeing them try to get the terminology correct.

I developed a theory about the good men. They're all sitting at home waiting for "the one" to come to the door. Just like we girls sit at home. At one time, I was so bad, I figured the only way I would meet someone was if he was delivering pizza. Why do we do this to each other?

Patricia Cecilia said...

I'm with Carolyn on your "bad" traits! How about a professional matchmaker? Maybe those Jewish grandmothers have it right... :-) I didn't find my one-and-only (after divorcing Mr. Very Wrong and Psycho) until I told God in no uncertain terms "no men, none, nada, not going there, I just want to get tenure and take care of DS and I"....BWAHAHA so I move to a new college to teach and WHAM! And He and all the nine choirs of angels laughed themselves silly...Oh, and DH wasn't looking, either--he was seriously thinking about becoming a MONK! He ended up with a wife and a stepson who is him at that age :-)

Your blog put a smile on my face. I'm sure they good guys are out there (but apparently avoiding me!, lol).

Meari, Meari, Meari -

What can I say??? Humm, perhaps you need a to meet a man from the south, apprently the one's in Northern Illinois are effected by some sort of brain freeze disorder. Keep posting, as someone recently told me "this too shall pass", better days are coming.

Love ya!!

Keep up your sense of humour and keep looking - he will be out there but not necessarily where you think he might be.

My DH and I met online three years ago and it worked just fine from day one.

Keep living, laughing and loving because the alternative is just miserable.

Barbara said...

ROFLOL Love your sense of humor. I sure hope you find your "good" man someday. Keep trying cause you never know when you're gonna come across him.

LOL, wow, after reading your last few posts, am I ever glad to be out of the dating pool. There are good guys still out there; finding them always has been the hard part.

I met my hubby through personal ads and got engaged through our first exchange of letters. I guess that makes it love at first write. Anyway, the good guys are still out there, albeit maybe not in your local vicinity. Mine was 2000 miles away. My sister's is 2600 and in Canada. Wouldn't you know it, like car keys they're always in the last place you look.

I love reading your entries, you put such a good spin on everything. As far as the good guys, I'm sure they are out there, but they sure do hide well as I haven't found one either. Although they do say, when you least expect it that is when you find someone, so hang in there. In the mean time, congrats on your earlier post of getting your second diploma. Magna Cum Laude is quite an accomplishment.
