So I'm a big fan of being proactive, going out and getting what you want and taking no prisoners. I've recently applied this attitude to my dating life, with online dating there is no reason not to have a date (ok so you take your chances on quality and possible kidnapping but hey, that's the risk you take) on Saturday night. Besides it's been a very quick and easy way to weed people out, it has not been an uncommon thing for me to have seen someone's profile on a site and then bump into them at a club or in public somewhere, sometimes it comes in handy because I already know we're not compatible from their either their lack of wordsmithing abilities or their complete disregard for punctuation.
However, today fate as it were (pick your deity here) intervened. I was walking out of the B&N where I grabbed my turbo lunch and I accidently bumped into a tall, dark, handsome stranger. Unfortunately some of my raspberry white mocha did end up on his pants but here's the kicker, he apologized to me! As I was frantically searching my purse for the Tide pen I always carry I was stammering out an apology. "I'm so sorry are you okay? Usually I wait until someone offends me to throw something on them." I was trying to desperately be funny. I looked up and he had the most amazingly blue eyes (a weakness of mine), he smiled what can only be described as mega watt grin and said "No scorched earth, I think I'll live. So will I have to jump in front of your coffee again to talk to you, or maybe I could just call you?" I couldn't help it, I busted up laughing as I handed him a card with my number on it, business cards are so useful like that. So Hot Pants McGee gave me his card and the deed was done.
So you see my lovlies yes, you should be proactive in your search, you should have the highest standards, reach for the stars in your love life, in your career in life in general. If you have that attitude and "act in accord" like the metaphysical people say what and who you are supposed to be doing will just naturally come to you.
