Relaxation At It’s Best!

I had gotten the chance to review the newest Yanni Voices on another blog. Oh my gosh! Is this what relaxation feels like? Apparently, it has been an extremely long time since I have experienced it. Every muscle in my body is no longer tense… well, maybe my hand is the exception- studying long hours will do that. I need hands of steel!

With the economy the way it is, I have tried everything to relax. I tried reading, but I would tense up to see what was going to happen next. I love cooking, so I watched the Food Network. Bad idea. I got really hungry. The next idea was to sleep. How in the heck would I sleep if I was so hungry? So, after a week and a half of procrastinating on the review, I popped in the CD. That was the answer. Now, all i needed was a glass of red wine and a guy who would make my heart flutter. Yes, I still dream of the perfect and romantic guy for me. Maybe even one who has a deep and seductive singing voice. Oh sorry. I was daydreaming again. I’ve got to stop that.

I am still trying to figure out other ways of reaching the perfect relaxation plane. Either way, I atleast found one that I can add to my list: Yanni. He’s not bad to look at, either! *wink*

Creeper Creepington

You know, you never know where you’ll meet someone or the circumstances. However, I bet meeting someone at a library doesn’t seem… exciting- unless the initial conversation revolves around literature or the new Twilight book. Now, I have no problem striking up a conversation with a single guy. The problem is, if a guy has no dating skills, respect for women, or is pushy, that can be a huge huge turn-off for me. Do you really want to know the point I am trying to make? Be prepared to feel creeped out. I know I was!

A few days ago, my sister and I were at the library one morning. A few minutes later, this random guy started talking to my sister. I just thought he was friendly. Well, he then asked her how old I was and if I was seeing anyone. This seems harmless, I know. This guy then asked for my number. Something in me felt uncomfortable about giving it to him- so I didn’t. When she and I got up from our chairs, he wanted to talk to me. He’s 42. I’m 24. Age usually doesn’t matter. However, I felt completely uncomfortable with him. He asked me if I liked to french kiss (sometimes) and also if I like Italian food (as long as it’s not Olive Garden). He walked me and my sister to our car. He wanted to hold my hand. I hadn’t even known him for 5 minutes. As we got into the car, he put his hand on my thigh. I felt uneasy. He then tried to lean in for a kiss… a french kiss at that! He got air as I pulled back. He then tried again and got my cheek. I felt SO uncomfortable that when he left, I wanted to throw up. Thinking about it still upsets my stomach!!

When we left the library parking lot, I told my sister that if she hadn’t been there, he probably would have pushed himself on me even further.

Why do the psychos find me? This is another reason I hate being single. I now can’t trust many guys. Thank you Mr. Single-Psycho-Foot-Fetish loser.

I’m On The Prowl

Being single really sucks at time. It does. You see all of these couple holding hands and kissing- which makes you yearn for that even more. So now that I’ve been kind of going on my own without a man for the past year and 2 months (Sadly, I’ve counted), I’m on the prowl once again! Although my college studying may interfere with that just a bit, I am not worried. The only thing I worry about (being single) is whether or not to put my hair up. I have decided that I am not going to change my personality just to meet someone. They will have to love me for who I am. I may seem like a tomboy at first because I don’t wear a lot of dresses, makeup, or skirts, but darnit, I love being cuddled!

Not to mention, I love being able to flirt with the guy and grab his attention. I do have to ask you, how did you meet your significant other and how did you draw their attention to you? Or if at all? I’m just really curious and might want to get some pointers. It’s been a while since I’ve done it and frankly, I am scared to death. Rejection hurts. So, single men, here I come!

Dreams and text messages

Earlier I was watching the movie “You’ve Got Mail.” Two thoughts ran through my mind. The first thought was that I had to send a text message to someone I like. Hopefully he reads my e-mail since I no longer can read or send text messages due to insufficient funds in my account. That’ll come later.

The second thought is kind of frivolous, but it’s nice to dream.

While watching the movie, I kept thinking that it would be nice to meet someone online, not give any specifics on names or where you work, and just to e-mail each other back and forth. It’s almost like a secret best friend you can confide in and not have any repercussions for it. I’m pretty sure having Tom Hanks as that “friend” wouldn’t be too bad.

So, as I sit here, I keep thinking that Prince Charming is out there and just waiting to be acknowledged; and some day, a fairy tale love will begin to bloom.

Apparently, I have read too many romance novels in my lifetime, and they have drifted into what I dream of. It’s nice to dream, but frankly, reality is far different.

So why the sad and lonely post tonight? Love stories. Movies of romance. They can bring a single woman down. I guess it’s true what Walt Whitman said, “I celebrate myself, and sing myself.” In order for someone to come in and love you, you have to love yourself and be confident with who you are.

From this point on, I am celebrating myself and will be happy with myself. With that, it will shine out and perhaps I will be much happier with myself.

Where’s the respect?

When you’re single, you expect to meet guys you might actually consider. Well, maybe in a perfect world. Otherwise, here in reality, you meet some guys who believe or think you should be perfect to suit them. These are the type of men you should avoid. If they don’t like something in you, tell them, nicely of course (or not…), to go sit on a stick. They cannot and willnot change you for who you are.
Okay you guys, while some of you are extremely respectful towards women, and I applaud you; some of you need a little lesson. There’s a few do’s and don’t of trying to find your mate.

DO NOT tell her that she needs to quit her job just so she can get health insurance.  She will change her mind on her own accord.

DO NOT tell her that you want to pork her within 5 minutes of meeting her. You might just lose her.

DO be honest with her. If you lie to her, and she finds out, you can say bye-bye to that one, too.

DO treat her with respect. That’s a big plus for us women.

Last but certainly not least, if she tells you to leave her alone, do so. Don’t continue to try to find her when she doesn’t want to talk to you. That can lead to a restraining order- and who wants that??

Being single bites, and finding the right one bites even harder than an alligator (bad analogy alert!)

But all in all, I think most of you men get it. Hooray for the last of a dying breed!
