Romeo Romeo Wherefore Art Thou...

I have shared this dating journey thus far and to say it has been interesting would be a huge understatement. I have met a few nice guys and I even have a second dating coming up that I am looking forward to.

I have also had some not so great experiences and conversations with some guys that, had this been a year ago, would have devastated me and I would have given up. Thankfully now I can just roll my eyes and move on. I wanted to share a conversation I had with a man just last night who I was chatting with for ONE WEEK and we were planning to meet for coffee this week. I had just told him I had children and this was his very next question.


It took me a minute to figure out why he was asking if they were "natural births" for a brief second I thought he might have been asking because I was a Doula....then I remember I had not told him I was a Doual yet.


Working out is not always easy. I do not like my treadmill at the best of times, I really do not enjoy lunges and sit ups are not super fun....now I have to add keegals to my list of things to do during my workout. Sigh...

You are welcome ladies for this blog post...you married ladies, be thankful that you are no longer dating...and you other single women, I seem to be a magnet for turds so you should be semi safe.

And the journey continues...

Today:

I am grateful for the opportunity to mother 3 boys who will go into the world to see woman as they should be seen, and to have a daughter who will know her worth from the beginning. My boys will value women and my daughter will respect men. I am ever so thankful I will have left these beautiful little people to help make the world a better place when my time here is done.

I am grateful I can laugh and see humor in all situations.

I am grateful.

Funniest thing I've seen all day. I was expecting a feeble joke from him after your reply, but instead his response was so earnest that I can't stop laughing. How do you find these guys?

Oh my God Joelle! I totally agree with what you said about married women - they don't have to deal with that kind of craziness! You and your vagina are too good for that guy anyways!!!

I think I would have told him that the problem was the size of the car not the size of the garage. OMG.....I cannot believe that he would have the nerve to ask a question like that or even think it. No wonder I am still single.
