I received the cutest little card today. It said "behind every good man is a ton of baggage that has been suppressed and is just waiting to come out…
Too bad the baggage couldn’t just go unclaimed and never be found. Me, I’ll wait for luggage. That’s code for an emotionally healthy man. (Ever wonder where some of this real unclaimed baggage (along with some possible emotional baggage) goes? This company buys it by the truckload and sells it!)
Getting back to my card…
Inside, my friend wrote:
Out looking for men for you, but need your expertise if you have any?
Guess who loves you?
Somebody, somehow, somewhere, even if I have to pay them…
anything for you.
This is from my best friend’s mother Louise. She is a special lady with the best sense of humor and the biggest heart. How nice that she’s looking for men for me! Hopefully, she won’t have too pay them much if anything, but at least she’s willing…a true friend.
Speaking of, how many of your friends know you are single and looking? Have you asked them if they know anyone that you might be interested in meeting? Take them out to lunch and sit down and ask them to write down 10 names with phone numbers and/or email addresses. Another idea is to send out a holiday card with a reply card with pre-printed questions/multiple choice options such as Yes, please call me! I know someone whom I would like you to meet. He is my _neighbor _doctor _ex-boyfriend, etc.
Seriously?!
