Twilight Zone....

December, huh? Where on earth did this year go? I cannot wrap my head around the fact that it's nearly Christmas and 2011.
I guess my denial isn't going to change anything... Christmas and New Years is coming whether I like it or not.
I definitely need to get into the Christmas spirit.

Soooo... I feel like I've entered the Twilight Zone.
It's been a while since I've actually gone on a date. There has been nothing. Nada.
I was complaining to my girlfriends the other day, and admittedly they were all right. I haven't exactly been in town long enough to actually meet the creatures from Mars.

Are there any decent men left in the world?
They're either pigs or gay.
Oh and my "gaydar" isn't working. Anyone know where I take that in to be fixed? Seriously.
I totally eye-f*cked a guy in a business suit the other day, he was drinking his coffee (his pinkie was down on the cup) and he was H.O.T. ....... Until he answered his phone. "Hello Mister Fabulous!! Ooooh I just can't wait to see you again sexy man!"
*cue the crickets*
Then, I met an incredible guy the other day, no really... I was actually quite impressed. I even thought that it might have restored my faith .... Only to be told that he is gay, but HE doesn't know it yet.
O. M. G.
Really? I seriously did not pick that up at all.
I was also reminded about my "eye-f*cking" the gay guy the other day.
Enough said.

Special K and I were talking about this subject over a skinny latte. I think my friends think that I am "fishing" when I say this, but I'm not and I genuinely mean it.
I think I may possibly be single for the rest of my life. The saddest part? I'm not a cat person. So investing in cats and cat food isn't really feasible.
Yay for me.

Anyway, back to the Twilight Zone story ... So there Special K and I are, discussing my single life, when I said: "I would just like to be wooed a little bit. I'd like to just go on a date. Is it so hard?"
Special K sips on her latte, rolls her eyes and says: "You are NOT going to be single for the rest of your life. You've been focusing on your career and you've been loving the single life, yes or no?"
"Yes. You're right... about the latter part, maybe not the first part."
"Any guy would be lucky to have you... He'll come a long when you least expect it and when the timing is right."
"I'm not fishing."
"I know. I'm just stating facts."
We finished up our B&K moment and headed out.

Well, careful what you wish for....
Not even 24 hours later, I got asked out on a date by a guy I met a few years ago. Admittedly I always thought he was hot, but never knew he was interested. I haven't seen him in years.
I called Special K up and told her the irony/good news. Thing is....Am I reading too much into it? Is it a date or is it just a catch up.
Oh the complications.
2 hours later, I get a message from a guy I went to varsity with, who asked me out on the second date - it's also been a few years.
3 hours later I got another message from a guy I had met at a braai a few months ago, he had got my number and asked me for dinner.
OK. Seriously. Where are the hidden cameras?
Are my friends behind this?
Apparently not.
Cue Twilight music.... 3 dates, within a few hours, 24 hours after I said and I quote: "I would just love to go out on a date... be wooed a little, you know?"
Now this isn't narcissism, but boy I'm shocked.
So I may or may not have 3 dates ... Maybe 2 and a half dates ... I've said yes to all ... why not?

So while I'm on a roll.... I'd also like to lose 7kgs, find my affordable dream home, I'd like my own TV show and I would like to triple my salary.

LOL I think I need to start complaining about not dating now, do you hear me universe :P cool man I'm so happy for you B.S, enjoy the dates, please write an update here. PLEASE! :)))

I don't need a bf, I would just like to be taken out on a date, dress up and have some nervous excitement, geez it's been a long time! (3 yrs if you're interested *cough*)

Good luck on your dates, and not to worry you definitely wont be single too long! I think it's also nice you had this break in between bf's and focused on other things.

Hey Chantal...

That's my sentiment too ... not looking for a boyfriend ... I mean, if the right person comes a long -wonderful ... but just to be wooed a little ;-)

Will definitely keep you up to date! haha
