The Singles Question

Today's post is a bit on what happened last weekend. On Friday I delivered an order of Alfajores and my client asked me to come in while she looked for her check book in her bag. While she was writing the check she asked me if I was dating anyone to which I replied "Not at the moment", then she asked me if it was OK if her brother would call me to ask me out and proceeded to tell me all his great qualities while she looked at me as if I had three heads.

The other thing that happened was that yesterday I was supposed to have dinner with some friends. About an hour before I was supposed to meet them my friend called to say that if we could re-schedule because she invited other friends of hers and it was turning out to be an all couples affair. Then she added that it would be uncomfortable for them to have a single girl in the mix and we should do it another time.

So, I was in some sort of very uncomfortable episode of SATC and somehow I didn't have my fabulous shoes on. The thing is that somehow I was not welcome in a group of all married people and also I was being studied for being single.

Above is the last scenes of the SATC because I love what Carries says about loving yourself above all:

'Later that day I got to thinking about relationships. There are those that open you up to something new and exotic, those that are old and familiar, those that bring up lots of questions, those that bring you somewhere unexpected, those that bring you far from where you started, and those that bring you back. But the most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you can find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous...'

My friends out there... if you are single feel good, enjoy and be happy being you... if you happen to have found the one, never forget about your friends because they were there by your side before you found your other half.

Have a nice week!
