Today, "St. Valentines Day" has got to be one of the worst days of the year. Like it's not bad enough during the rest of the year seeing couples together. Then they have to go have a day that celebrates the fact that they got lucky and us singles haven't yet.
So.. Here's my propsition. (hehe.)
Have a day where instead of leaving the single people out the couples (or at least just one of them) takes a friend or group of friends who are single out.
Either that or parents of the world need to loosen up their grip on their kids or have more daughters instead of sons.
Asking girls out is a new realm for me after being so brainwashed in the whole "can't even make eye-contact with a female" way that IBLP has. I was so brainwashed in that idea that I even attempted to once participate in their "proper" way to ask a girl out.
This basically consisted of saying nothing to the young lady at all tell I'd so bottled up the emotions that had no simple outlet that I couldn't help but ask her dad if I could "court" her in an attempt to marry her. d'oh. THAT was a bad move.. Being so engrained in "their" mindset though that it took 3 years of wondering "what I did wrong" before I realized that the only thing wrong that I did was to not just ask her out and get to know her better before becoming actually serious about any kind of relationship.
So.. 3+ years later, learning that I need to get over my deeply engrained brainwashing that was IBLP I started just hunting around for a nice girl to ask out..
Know what? I think that they are all taken.
Here's my thoughts on the idea.
"Girls are like parking spots.
All the good ones are taken, or are in a different lot.
All the ones that are left are way out there of handycapped."
So... Here I go facing another Valentines day with no close female friend (I actually have female friends now which is a major step) to treat nicely and show off to other singles.. :-P
Boy.. This was a rambling pointless post. But I had to rant about something. I needed the break from application essays.
