Old Maid

Old Maid - A woman who has remained single beyond the conventional age for marrying.

Since when is 26 beyond the conventional age for marrying?? Any ideas? I personally don't think that 26 is old. But according to my parents when they were my age they were already married and had a baby on the way. And Patrice where are you in your life?You don't even have a boy in your life right now. If I hear that one more time I will freak out. Now I know that my parents really are only looking out for my happiness - but I have never said I was unhappy where I am in my life. Did I think I would be married with a kid at this age when I was younger? Sure, but I'm not and that is ok. 

But beyond all this where do my parents expect me to meet a guy? I am pretty sure I am not going to meet the love of my life at a bar. I know that some people meet the loves of their lives on online dating sites but that isn't really for me. Oh and you are also supposed to meet people through your friends. Yeah, that doesn't work so well. So I tell this all to my parents and they go on to name friends of mine that they think I should go after. I have been friends with these people for YEARS! It's not going to happen. 

So what is a girl to do to get her parents off her back?

  1. Home Depot. The countless Saturdays that my Hubs and I spend in there, finding renovation materials for our house? Oh man.. I always say that if I was a single girl, I would totally play helpless in Home Depot. Do you KNOW how many hotties go there?? Haha.. No worries.. The right guys is out there. You'll find him/He'll find you when the timing is right! :)
