A well meaning friend commented (via facebook) about a Mr. Wrong post. "Do you ever wonder if the need to write about Mr. Wrong will lead you to labeling Mr. Right as another Mr. Wrong because of some small flaw? just a thought..." Initially when I read his comment I pondered deleting it. But the more I processed it, I realized there could be some truth to his statement...and then I start to wonder--is this how people who read my blog or people who know me in real life see me? Flitting from (bad) date to (bad) date...or even worse going on dates that I know will end in destruction just so I can post about being hurt, confused, bemused, insulted or just sad? I'm sorry if that is the opinion that you've gained from reading my Mr. Wrong Wednesdays. I would never toy with someone's emotions, get their hopes up, or go on a date with them if I weren't genuinely interested in them. I wouldn't use someone just for a blog post, or for a story that I could get some laughs about, the bottom line is I wouldn't use someone. And, I hope no one would use me.
Here are a few things that you may not know about me on my quest to find a Mr. Right:
*Only One out of the Thirteen Mr. Wrong's I've written about has been during the time I've been in Law School. I desperately wish I had the time, effort, and energy to speed date--but I don't. The other twelve that I've shared have been over the past few years.
*I'm not opposed to finding a Mr. Right, in fact I really I hope I do, (actually I hope he finds me :-D) or maybe I have one right now...which could very well be one of the reasons I haven't blogged about anyone that may be my Mr. Right.
*I have a very specific list of what I'm looking for in the opposite sex, and I won't amend any of the items on it. I started it when I was really young. I would pray for my future husband and certain qualities would come to mind--so I would jot them down. I still do the same thing, but through trial and error (okay, lots of error) there are even more qualities (and most are more specific than they were at a younger age) that I've found that are extremely important for me to have in a someone I'm dating, and then a future spouse.
*(5th grade) I hope he prays for me too...
*(Freshman Year of College) I wonder if he's out there.
