>Do you remember that scene in Tommy Boy where David Spade and Chris Farley are sitting in a diner? Chris Farley’s character is talking about his Lenny-like attitude towards sales. He uses a roll as a metaphor. He gets overly excited about getting the roll (sale) and he inadvertently destroys it with his enthusiam.
That is basically my problem when it comes to men. I get all enthusiastic when I find a hot guy or even a mildly attractive guy. I try to keep a lid on my emotions, but I can’t help myself. I end up getting disappointed because I feel as though he saw through my eagerness and was disgusted. It’s probably not true, but it’s my perception. 9 times out of 10 they end up having a girlfriend.
Anyway, I finally got a decent looking fella to email me. His profile deems him interesting and probably literate. I’m just worried that I will get all Farley and ruin things before they even get started. I just have to keep telling myself to relax and go with the flow. I’ll just vent all of my frustration/eagerness here.
>AAAAAAAaaa rrrrrrrrrrrrrnnnnnnnnnnhhhh, HHHurrRRRRRRRRnhhhh. UUUHHHGGG-rrrr! UUUHHHGGG-rrrrRRR! UUUHHHGGG-rrrrRRR! HHHurrRRRRRRRRnhhhh. AAAAAAAAaaa rrrrrrrrrrrrrnnnnnnnnnnhhhh!
>I feel ya! I use to be picky about girls. Now I’m single again and I’ll settle for anyone who dosn’t have kids.
>Aw hell, SFChick! We all feel that way, including whoever this guy is. Be honest, be pleasant, and have fun with it.
>Right on! Chewbacca! I loved that song about you in the Clerks sound track.
I can’t tell you how many guys with kids have sent me emails. I clearly state that I’m not interested in men with kids. I swear I’m the only person over the age of 25 who hasn’t procreated.
Thanks for the words of encouragment.
>I’m 39 and my family and friends thank me every day for the fact that I haven’t knocked anyone up yet. But once again, I’m making this about me, aren’t I? Were you saying something? Oh yeah. I loved Tommy Boy too!
