Hey – so it’s been a few weeks since I’ve written. It’s been busy – prepping for the holidays, dealing with a very mean virus that pretty much put me down for the count for a solid week, working on my side business. Life overall, has been pretty good.
I also find that in the last couple weeks – my frustration is up, for many reasons. There’s something about this time of year – it brings people out from their hiding spots to say hello. In most cases, this is great, as I enjoy catching up with old friends and family. But it’s the ones you wish would stay in their hiding spots that bother me. Those people who are so desperate for affection or god knows what else during the holidays – who you don’t hear from any other time of the year.
“Hey there…” I get a message on my phone. The number is not in my phone – therefore I immediately know that whomever this contact is, wasn’t warranted as being worthy of being added into my phone. Approach with caution! lol.
“Who is this?”
“Oh hey – we talked briefly 3 years ago on OKCupid.. I kept this number. What’s your name?”
Hold up… hold the phone. There is so much that is wrong with this situation. First off – you kept a phone number for someone you don’t know for 3 years all because at one point we talked on a dating app? What the hell am I saved in your phone as, Girl No. 87? Second of all – you reach out …. after 3 YEARS of NO contact… to what? Continue the conversation out of the blue, as if I’ve been waiting patiently for you to respond? UGH!
Few minutes later, I still haven’t shared my name… cue the dick pics. Seriously dude?! If I haven’t talked to you in 3 years, I’m not responding much right now, and you don’t find me on the dating site that we met on to begin with – what on EARTH makes you think it’s ok to send me dick photos? Do you think that by receiving pics of Mr. Winky that I’ll fall all over myself to meet you, and then let you sleep with me where in all likelihood, you’ll get off and I won’t?! Because obviously if you’re this desperate – your skills are likely lacking. F-That!
I met someone recently who managed to make my aries anger monster come out in full force. It’s actually pretty rare that someone pisses me off, as I’m pretty even keeled in general. I was having a conversation with a few folks at a sports bar – we were talking about the dating world and how things have changed over the years. I had stated my opinion about sex. That it would be nice to go back to a world where sex and intimacy is special. Because it SHOULD be! Sex is easy to get – love… not so much. This asshat decided to inform me that my opinion on the matter sounded like a highschooler. That I’m naive and immature for thinking that and that I should just learn to embrace casual sex because that’s the new way of the world. Cue my disgust.
Fine – maybe I am a naive highschooler. *sigh* No… F-That! I know I’m not.
Maybe I’m just a grown woman who’s realized what’s important to her. Maybe I’m someone who allowed the world and society to re-shape my thoughts and opinions on sex and I regret it to some extent. What I should have said to this lowlife of a man was “Fine – maybe YOU don’t think sex should be special – perhaps that’s why you’re ALWAYS on the hunt for your next victim and why you’ll forever wonder when you’ll find the right girl for you. The right girl for you is obviously a blow up doll, you asshat!”
Now don’t misunderstand – I’m not saying sex should ALWAYS be special – cuz sometimes quickies are awesome, and sometimes the mood calls for something else entirely – but I am a firm believer that I should know the ins and outs of someone’s heart and mind BEFORE I get to know their dick. If that makes me old fashioned or naive… fine. I’ll own that.
A few of my friends have been giving me relationship and dating advice – and truth be told, I occasionally seek out their opinions. But this weekend, it dawned on me that perhaps I’m done seeking other’s thoughts on my life. As much as I value my friends, and I value their opinions and experience on things, I also realized that I’m not them. I don’t, and won’t make the same choices they do, when it comes to my life. It was a freeing feeling… although I doubt they’d be very happy to hear it.
On another topic: My side business is booming. I’m so shocked and surprised. Last week -we put up a retail display at a massage clinic/chiropractor care clinic. It was just meant to be a test to see what kind of interest we’d have and to see how the display shelves held up. The idea was that we’d get 2 weeks of time under our belt before xmas just to see how things go. I had convinced myself to not be disappointed if we didn’t sell anything. Imagine my surprise when on day 2, I got a phone call that they needed more stock! I restocked those shelves 3 times last week!! I’m thrilled, and surprised, and excited!
This past weekend was full of experiments on some new scents and new products. Yesterday, my daughter and I tested some of our experiments out. So far – everything we tested has been burning beautifully. Next week – I’m going to play with making soaps, and I won’t lie – I can’t wait! If everything works out the way I hope it will – I’ll have some new additions to the product line in January! It’s strange – I never imagined I’d get into this stuff – candles and soaps and skincare. But I LOVE playing the mad scientist!! It’s a blast!!
Well – I better get on with my day! Much love to you Neverland.
