When you're single, fellow singles call it single awareness day. Now I hate this, because it's super cynical. I mean, I can be pretty cynical about love as well, but for some reason, when I saw so many status updates and tweet updates about "Singles Awareness Day," it really just kind of irritated me. Why can't we be happy for those that ARE in relationships and choose to have a huge display on this day? I mean, I personally would rather someone tell me they love me everyday, have a secret admirer randomly ask me on a date instead of it be the one day that is supposed to be "the day of love." Why can't every day be a day of love?
Then almost all of the TV shows last week, AND this week are also centered on love. Some personal favorites are the episodes of Whitney (shows when Whitney and Alex first met), How I Met Your Mother (even though it probably didn't end up the way most of you wanted, I thought it was perfect), and Hart of Dixie (I have a feeling that something is about to go DOWN with the Lavon/Lemon/George/Zoe/Wade situation, and SOON.)
And then song has slowly made its way to my number one country song obsession right now:
But then I spent an AMAZING weekend away from home (which is what I originally intended this post for, my how easily I get distracted...), and realized that love of friends can be all you need sometimes.
But I also return to work tomorrow, and I did meet someone I find attractive that works for my same company (different location) and he's been all I've been able to think about since I've returned home today. I'm nervous and anxious about connecting with him...I had lots of opportunity to try to set something up, but I chickened out last minute. Eh, it happens.
I promise to update on my weekend later this week!
