Everyone loves a good “how we met” story.
You know, the kind that makes movies like “Must Love Dogs” or “27 Dresses”, it’s all……...you know……..cute ”how we met” stories! I love it when I hear my friends tell theirs, it’s like icing on the wedding cake.
Many people have colorful tales of how they met either the loves of their lives or the reasons why they currently have to take out court orders of protection! Who hasn’t heard the mundane stories of couples meeting in local places?
One friend said she met her husband at a Laundromat….Yikes, I don’t think I’ve ever been in one have you?
O.K. maybe I have “How We Met Stories” envy because I never had such neatly wrapped tales of how I met someone. Well, not unusual movie style stories anyway. Oh sure, I’ve recently eyeballed a distinguished guy at the bookstore and we shared a “moment” before moving on with our lives. No, I never went back to the same store at the same time the following day or week to see if he’d be there. There may be such a thing as Fate, but no one said that it was a matchmaker!
Yeah, I’ve tried the “Online Dating” thing several years ago. It was flattering for a while when your computer is loaded with tons of emails from men saying all the right words until the truth be revealed...........I just got bored with all the liars and false photos posted that are 10 years old!
So, I occasionally go into some nice night spots with my girlfriends and I have other friends that feel that looking for love in bars is being lonely under the influence! I actually should go out more often than I do. No one is going to meet anyone by staying home with the clicker in your hands.
Well, now at my age, I’m not looking to get married again but what is wrong with wanting company with the opposite sex? Oh my, so how have I’ve fared with finding my Prince Charming in bars???? Remember the old saying about having to kiss a lot of toads? Well, I’ve had my share of “ribbits” as the next woman.
I’ve also met some cool people to hang out with. I’ve been on a few nice dates that haven’t gone anywhere as well as actually having had a relationship from a bar meeting or an online dating meeting. These days, I like popping by certain night spots and while I don’t quite have that “Norm” status from the TV show “Cheers”, I do enjoy seeing the familiar faces. I'm originally a Boston gal and yeah, it's nice walking into Cheers where everyone knows your name! Is there a “Prince Charming” in the horizon? Well, there is always a charming gentleman somewhere, that devilish man who piques my interest or that one particular fantastic dancer that glided me across the dance floor...…so, let’s just say that my Apple Martini days aren’t over yet! I really drink scotch but an Apple Martini sounded like a nice girly drink! LOL
Do you have a great “how we met” story you would like to share with me?
