Knock on Wood.

Once upon a time, I had many single girlfriends.
and now that time is over.
the end.

During that time, like most girlfriends, we joked about never finding Mr. Right, and being single for the rest of our lives. (I should have knocked on wood.) Anywho...I bought my friend a book. about finding Mr. Right. And I thought it was so appropriate, I bought myself the book too. I found this treasure the other day, and thought it was so pathetic that it still completely and 100% still applies to my life 3 years later...and quite frankly..it kinda makes me feel better about my life. as sad as that sounds.
So ...I would like to share it with you. For all those women...who forgot to knock on wood.

So you feel like all your friends are merrily coupled...
and you keep attracting the wrong kind of people.
Everyone seems to be luckier in love than you.
People tell you you're too picky.
But you're just putting your foot down.
They tell you to put yourself out there.
but you've dated plenty.
You just havent found the right connection.
Or they weren't exactly mental giants.
and you are.
If you happen to find someone who sees things the way you do....
then they dont live up to your family's expectations.
And so it's back to the old drawing board.
You spend hours trying to better yourself.
You hone your many qualities.
You develop new hobbies.
And people misinterpret your intentions.
Your friends set you up with the "perfect match"
Which leads you to continue trying on your own.
Some say men are all dogs.
and girls are too catty.
They are quick to point out how we are different.
without ever celebrating our similarities.
You've tried everything.
And so there are times when you are ready to throw in the towel.
But don't give up.
Give people a chance.
Don't limit yourself.
be willing to give a little.
Change your routine.
Get rid of old baggage.
Don't rush things.
It will be worth the wait.
Let them know you're worth it.
and so are they.
Remember they're all princes.
or NOT.

So there you have it ladies. Words from the wise.
Love is just around the corner.

but until then...i'll just fantasize about kissing my hot boyfriend on a bike at the beach.
