Can I tell you a secret?

by Melanie Hooyenga



I recently became single after four years of marriage and this whole dating this has me a little… kerfluffered. The last time I was in this position I met men the old-fashioned way: by getting drunk at bars or browbeating friends until they caved and scrounged up a single friend.

After months of toiling away in my basement (trolling the internet) and wondering where exactly all the single men ARE, I've discovered that I'm rather infatuated with someone. I'm a little embarrassed to bring it up here but I just can't keep it quiet any longer.

First, he's gorgeous. I mean, come on. He greets me every morning with a brilliant smile that lightens my mood—even if he didn't make the coffee this morning or put away the dishes like I'd hoped—and never seems to notice that I slept with my head wedged between three pillows, or the fact that mascara has set up permanent camp on my eyebags.

Second, we have a ton in common. We both like movies and sports and reading, and while we don't necessarily agree on WHICH movies and sports and books, we like them in general so that should be enough. Can't you just picture us reading in front of the TV with a generic movie or sporting event playing softly in the background?

Third, he doesn't judge me for my online shenanigans. He just sits alongside me and smiles at my friends, laughing his nonchalant, "I don't have a care in the world but I'm very smart and a kind person" laugh. He puts up with my spastic ideas and is always ready for whatever catches my interest that day.

Really the only negative that I can see is he's trapped inside my computer in the dating site ads on Facebook. But he really is very pretty.

  2. It's possible...

    He's not as discriminating as I'd like.

  4. LOL! Awwww. Yeah. I know the feeling. Not that I'm actively looking yet, but... I definitely know the kerfuffled feeling.

  5. He is pretty, for sure. Much prettier than the guy who advertises lower mortgage rates, whose image looks more like a mug shot.

  6. I feel better now as I have a mad crush on the Allstate mayhem guy. Newly single myself, I am beyond kerfluffered... I am flummoxed.

  7. He seems oddly familiar. Now I'm wondering if I really know him...

    Lisa, there is nothing wrong with the Allstate mayhem guy. Aside from the mayhem part.

    Good luck!!

  10. Yeah but he's lazy. Just look at that chair for proof. It's is in bad need of a fresh coat of paint.

  11. Hmmm. Sits around all day and is gorgeous. No, I wasn't married to him. The gorgeous part is all wrong.

  12. LOL! At first I thought you were going to say it was Owen!

    I have three friends who have met on one of those online dating sites.. they've all been happily married for at least two years. ;)

    Cute Post!

  13. Okay, I'm a little bothered that EVERYONE assumed I was talking about my dog... O.o

  14. Yeah, I mean it's not as if you're obsessed with the lil' dude, and make blogs and Facebook pa--

    Never mind.
