Something Small

The reason you haven't heard from me: I was thinking about me and dating, and I decided that I'm not going to let myself think that it's my fault that I'm single, anymore. It's just plain, dumb luck, and while there are lots of ways you make your own luck, there are also lots of ways in which your plain, dumb luck is Not Your Fault.

Like, for example this: You meet a guy. He's attractive and he seems to be into you. You're into him. Then, bam, he stops calling. What happened?

Correct answer: God only knows. Do yourself a favor. Stop thinking about it.

Or this: You meet a guy. You like him. He likes you. Then, bam, everything he does annoys the crap out of you. You can't even stand to be in the same room with him. What happened?

Correct answer: Who cares? Stop thinking about it. Just get out of the room as fast as you can.

Al gives good advice, and I'm glad you are listening. I love the "Stop thinking about it. Just get out of the room as fast as you can." Hahaha.

It isn't your fault at all. Yes, there are ways to make your luck, or to put yourself more in the path of meeting someone. And then there is just the randomness of the world. You are lovely and wonderful and one of these days you will meet the guy - you really really will - and he will be so right for you. I know this for a fact.

I really liked this post and I definitely could relate to it, especially since I could really do myself a favor and stop thinking all the things that have happened this past semester at my college lol.
