Why put this all online instead of talking to my friends? I’ve always been the listener in my friend group, but when it comes to talking about my own life I tend to feel like I’m wasting their time. Plus, almost all of them are married now, and have children. They've long since left this stage of life in the dust.

Why one more year? Because dating is exhausting and I’m tired of the cycle of crushing to crushed and back again. Because if I continue waiting for the one, I’m afraid the rest of life will pass me by.

A little background about me – I’m in my early thirties and I’ve never been in love. Growing up I was always the shy, ugly girl that no guys paid attention to. However, I have had one boyfriend in the recent past. It was not a match made in heaven.

Here are the current key people:

The Ex – Twenty-five years my senior. Half of the time he is one of the most generous guys you’d ever meet. The other half, he’s an emotionally abusive, unapologetic a**hole. He’s a workaholic who hasn’t taken a day off in over a year. To complicate matters,  we still work together and are still friends.

The Brit – My current crush. He lives in England. I do not. He’s cute and has that oh-so-sexy accent. We frequent the same forum and belong to a group chat on Skype. We have a lot in common but he might have his eye on someone else.

Muscle Man – Met through a mutual friend. He really likes to work out. Me? Not so much. We used to go to school together but never had any of the same classes. Our mutual friend claims he’s interested, but he took three months to get in contact. Not sure we have much in common but I’m willing to get to know him.

      Oh man, that was me. So sheltered; so much of what the school kids laughed about went right by me.

      We had a Dodge Caravan with wood paneling and I did wonder why they kept asking me if I "had a woody."  Again, years passed...

      The boys weren't terrible, they were just adolescent boys, but a lot of my early "smut" knowledge was due to girls pooling info when we realized why boys were laughing, lol.  (My mom shared all the real, anatomical knowledge, but not so much with the slang.)

      I grew up with the Irish Rovers' The Unicorn Song, which says the same thing. 

        Hide contents

      A long time ago, when the earth was still green
      And there were more kinds of animals than you've ever seen
      They'd run around free while the earth was being born
      But the loveliest of all was the unicorn

      There was green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      The loveliest of all was the unicorn

      Now god seen some sinnin' and it gave him pain
      And he says, "stand back, I'm going to make it rain"
      He says, "hey, brother Noah, I'll tell you what to do
      Build me a floating zoo"

      And take some of them green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      Don't you forget my unicorn"

      Old Noah was there to answer the call
      He finished up making the ark just as the rain started fallin'
      He marched in the animals two by two
      And he called out as they went through
      "Hey, Lord"

      I've got your green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but Lord, I'm so forlorn
      I just can't see no unicorn"

      Then Noah looked out through the driving rain
      Them unicorns was hiding, playing silly games
      Kicking and splashing while the rain was pouring
      Oh, them silly unicorns

      There was green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Noah cried, "close the doors 'cause the rain is pourin'
      And we just can't wait for no unicorns"

      The ark started movin', it drifted with the tide
      Them unicorns looked up from the rock and they cried
      And the waters came down and sort of floated them away
      And that's why you'll never see a unicorn, to this very day

      You'll see green alligators and long-necked geese
      Some humpty-backed camels and some chimpanzees
      Some cats and rats and elephants, but sure as you're born
      You're never gonna see no unicorn

       

      LOL there's a whole dance that goes along with that song, it's a family fav, especially after a few drinks!

      Did we know she has a store where she sells stuff? Bracelets, t-shirts, a hat, etc. It's part of her website.

      *(whispers) I didn't know what they meant until later, when I was a sophomore in high school.
