If you want...

TO get married, then you should date me. Not because you'll end up marrying me but because the next girl you date, you will end up marrying. This has happened about 5 times now. Seriously. So I've got a pretty good track record. Maybe I could put an add in Kijiji and make free money and go on fun dates. Oh and of course bring others eternal happiness.

Here is a recent conversation I had with a little girl at the pool:

Girl: How old are you?
Me: I'm 22. That's pretty old huh?
Girl: Yes...are you married?
Me: Well no...(disgusted look graces the girls face) I probably should be hey?
Girl: Uh Ya. (Big head nod for extra emphasis)

But in all reality I've lost track of how many similar conversations I've had.
They differ in peoples reactions.
Some just think it's awesome that I'm not a crazy girl who got married young and that I travelled the world and have grown and matured and yada yada yada.

Others don't give me the look or the answers the young girl did but you can sense their sympathy and surprise. "What you aren't married?" "Well you still look good" (are you trying to say that because I still look good there is still hope? Good thing I've got that going for me)

Well there you have it people. Just a silly little post about my life these days.

i always thought it was weird that people had those types of conversations at all. marriage and your love life is an incredibly private and sacred thing and it's so weird to me that people pry and ask about it so freely. really it's no one's business but your own and those involved. next time just tell them to mind your own business :)

Chanel you are hilarious! I love the way you write. It was fun seeing you a few times when I was down. I think the world of you and I still think your dad is the best teacher around.
