I’ve been surfing in search of a top eggnog recipe. I mean, I’m having an eggnog party on Saturday it would be poor form to have no nog, right? I can’t find one that I like, though, so if you have any suggestions I’d be happy to take them.
But what I’m really thinking about today are funny, intelligent, attractive men.
Pretend to be surprised.
More specifically I’m thinking about those men out there who are funny, smart, good-looking and et cetera, but remain single. Anyone, actually, who is apparently perfect yet remains single. My mother would say, and rightly so, that no one is perfect, however the question is still the same even without the perfection.
What is it that you think when you see Mr Perfect or Miss Perfect with a “single” in their relationship status (thank you, fb)? I know my immediate thought is “Oh, grab that one before anyone else finds out!” but after that you probably start to try to figure it out.
You go through the normal and obvious reasons:
He has deep mental issues that only come out after six months of dating.
She has history of violence.
He is from a broken family.
She has daddy issues.
I never consider things that make me single, though, which is really unfair. Since I’m single and have none of those problems that I listed above, you would think that I would come up with some reasons that are close to mine. Reasons like work or refusal to settle.
Though perhaps we all think ourselves totally normal and awesome so we never notice our own imperfections.
Like me, for instance. I’m totally awesome.
Not normal, but hey. Normal isn’t any fun anyway.
