All the Single Ladies…
Okay girls, I’m starting to feel like guys think that dating me is going to be a lot easier than it really is. And then when the rubber hits the road they decide it is too much work and take off.
I don’t’ think I make any bones about the fact that I am high-maintenance, but I am also high performance — very high performance. At least, that’s my goal. I can’t help the high-maintenance part, but I can control the performance part.
Okay, so today I was thinking, if I were going to put out an ad for the fella I want – you know, like you put out an ad for someone to fill a job – what would I put in the ad? And if a guy applied for the job what resume items would really get my attention? Also, if dating me were a job how many guys would even apply?
Maybe I should put together a job description – just to put it all out there and really get the ball rolling on finding a fella that can fit the bill. Now that I am working in the advertising department I can’t help but wonder how to best target the type of man I’m looking for.
Of course I have to get over this whole Blake thing before I can accept any new applications, but I’m doing pretty good honestly. It was really intensely painful initially, but I’m feeling a lot more like myself again and I might be ready to accept applications for a significant other beginning in the New Year.
So, maybe I should work on that job description. What do you guys think I should include? Honestly, I have a list of things I want in a guy that I have been working on since I was 16. (Maybe 17.) But the items on the list are all pretty vague. Like, “he doesn’t have to love what I love. He just have to love that I love it.
I suppose that sounds a little crazy, and probably daunting for any fella who might be interested in me. But maybe the prospect of dating me should be more daunting. Like the ad for the position should be titled: Not for the Faint of Heart. I need to find some way to weed out the weenies before I’m involved enough with the guys that I fall for them.
Some sort of test of manhood. (Well, honestly, dating me has got to qualify as some sort of test of manhood, but, I digress.) It really is too bad that there is no way in our society to have an application process that is more stringent. Honestly it would probably be more effective, expedient and fair.
Okay girls, if a true application process did exist what would it take for a man to apply to be your significant other? What would the ad for the job look like? And what would the job description include?
