So I have a twin sister. I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned that before. And the fact that we couldn’t be more different. She’s shorter than I am, with brown hair, a holier than thou attitude, a questionable sense of style (think low-cut tops with shorts and high-heeled sandals that she teeters around town on) and a level of compassion and understanding that is rivaled only by that of Hitler. Okay, she’s not that bad, but kinda close. I have it on good authority that I’m prettier, smarter, more driven, funnier and nicer than she is (hard to believe since I just compared her to Hitler, right?). She found love later in life. She married her 1st husband at age 41 and lost him way too soon. She’s the one that lost her husband in a tragic motorcycle accident in January of 2011. She’s the one who opted to start dating again after just 6 months to fill the void that M left. She’s the one that, after just 2 weeks on horrific JDate, met a man that she would move in with shortly thereafter. She’s also the one that is getting married. Again.
So I ask you: how is it that she can meet a great guy so soon after joining what I consider to be the worst dating site ever? Well okay, 2nd worst after Plenty of Fools. 😉 How is it that she can find 2 men to fall madly in love with her, bitchy attitude and all? How is it that she is well on her way to marriage number 2 and yet I remain single?
Contrary to what this post would lead you to believe, I’m actually happy for her. She deserves to be happy. She’s been through a lot. D seems like a terrific guy and they appear pretty perfect for each other. Sure, she has different standards than I do. Sure, she has a different life than I do. Sure, she has a much different personality than I do. I’m a bit puzzled though. And not in a bitchy, competitive way either. I honestly don’t know what I’m doing wrong……
How is it that she’s going to be married twice before I can even find a guy to go out on a 3rd date with? And no, it’s not always me ‘opting out’ of follow-up dates either. It’s them. So although I would like to say it’s because I’m so ‘picky’, I fear that’s not the case. At least not anymore. Damn, I’m almost out of men to date in this town. 😉
