It’s finally happened. My friends have lost faith in my ability to find a man.
Like a tee ball right fielder relies on mom’s unfailing encouragement, I came to count on my friends for the pep talk. “Sure, this one might not totally suck, go for it.”
Me: Want to meet BeauWhoMakesMeSoGushyYouCan’tStandMeTheseDays?
Ely: I thought we met, in front of your house?
Me: Wasn’t he hiding in the bedroom naked?
Ely: Hmmm no he wasn’t naked when I thought I met him.
Me: I’m sure you no longer bother committing names to memory.
Ely: Sometimes that’s true.
Instead of finding hope in my current happiness, my friends avoid me these days. I can’t blame them. They’re already scouring XStreet for a Sorry He’s an Asshat pick-me-up bouquet. When your love life is like so many Kansas City Royals seasons, a few promising starts but never able to maintain the momentum, even your most loyal supporters stop saying maybe next time, slugger.
