Marriage material? Prove it

If you are perpetually single and want to get married, you may have to start sending out your “marriage material” signals. There are some people who do live their lives in a way that is conducive to marriage. Then there are others who talk, live, and conduct their lives in a way that screams “Single for life!” – and maybe that is turning people off.

When you first meet someone you are interested in, they may size you up and put you under “marriage material” scrutiny. How do you think you would come off? Single for life or ready for marriage?

Do you ever worry that your fabulous single life may send the message that you are not willing, ready, or able to give it up and merge with someone else?

What changes, if any, should be made so that you can prove that you are indeed ready for love and marriage?

P.S. I hope everyone has a safe and spectacular holiday!

@cba ~ hey there. How have you been? Happy Thanksgiving!

I’m really trying to put my big toe in this dinner. My greedy child already took a bowl of my yams.

Although NaVan is my sipping drink, give me a double of Brandy and a Budweiser. I’m in that mood.

My boss just gave me the all clear. But I’ve got some wedding stuff to do. (lol)

And if traffic is as bad as I think it is, ITL may as well be blogging cause she’s certainly not moving. :)

Wish Picadilly would bring back the Talipia with shrimp sauce on top. That was delicious.

We looked at a possible venue today. That would accomodate the non-traditional wedding idea that I initially came up with. We will also be looking at the Cascade Club for a wedding that would be in the current traditional style wedding. At last, but not least, we are looking at a country church type venue that would take us in a totally different direction.

It was fantab…met the CUTEST guy while having breakfast with my kid. She kept leaning in saying, mama he’s checking you out…lol My kid’s “guy” came over, quite mannerable I must say. It was a PRETTY GOOD DAY….overall.

How was your turkey day? Did you cook?

Sounds cozy and nice to me :) Let me tell you. We went to the WH on the E/W Connector because it’s always nice and clean and still fairly new. Anyway, I walk in and I have this phobia about eating near the restroom and the only available seats were on that side soooo, we opted for the counter. There were two seats next to one guy so I asked if we oculd sit there and he was cool with it. So he and I chatted a bit but the cute dude was at the counter as well but a couple of seats away. Anyway to get in on the convo the cute guy leans back to say “ummm, you know this is VIP section right” so I said…the only reason I’m sitting here…and we all laugh. Anyway the dude right next to me left and there was the cute dude and 2 seats between. So again, my kid to my right is whispering “mama he keeps looking at you.” Well I can tell he’s regular fixture there because they’re calling him by first name and women in there were giddy to bring him I guess what they know he likes. So one lady brings a glass of hot water with his silverware in it. So I give him an opening and say…”that’s interesting, never thought to do that” and he says “oh yeah, no other way will I eat”….and it goes from there. So he starts talking about world matters and gets into what he does and I’m agreeing and something related…as it relates to my job so that prompts him to ask where work. He says “Really? I have an interview with your company Friday (today)” Said he worked here about 4 years ago and had a call from a recruiter Wednesday and that they wanted to know even though the holidays, if he could come in for an interview today. So we talk some more. By that time my kid has moved but still within ear shot and he asks if that’s my kid and she says…”tell him about me mama (her plans for the day)” so we talk and he laughs and asks her questions about her guy friend and tell her what to expect, what to tolerate (from boys) and what not…so forth and so on. Well I’ve already overheard him talking to the waitresses there and found out he was divorced with custody of a 10 year old. Anway we talked about 30 minutes after we’re both done eating and he says “let me walk you out” By this time the kid is in the car and we’re talking and upon ending the convo he says “so I’ll see you around here?” Posed in the form of a question and I dunno, I didn’t say it (giving out my number or asking for his). We ended the convo WITH NO NUMBERS EXCHANGED…and he was a hawtie too. Anyway I get in the car and my kid say “mama….why didn’t he just ask for the number?” Still, nice guy, nice convo.

WHOA!!! That makes me giddy just reading about it but i’m sure you were all smiles leaving there but still wondering if you two would ever meet again. Maybe he was a bit nervous to ask for the number outright?? Didn’t want to ruin the vibe yall had going with that numbers thing lol

You know Slim…I was kicking myself because he seemed like a pretty cool guy. Said he had custody of his daughter. Her mom was in town and asked me what I thought about all of them (her family is here) getting together. Said he wasn’t sure about her motives. I said well for your daughter’s sake you should do it and no matter her motives you stick with yours and doing the right thing and sending the right message. Maybe I’ll go back there and eat. I told him so you’re just a regular fixture here. He laughed and said he’s there often but was there that morning to give back for the daughter and mom to spend time together. He asked me if I cooked and I looked at him and asked “do I look like I might have cooked”…he laughed and say heck yeah. Anyway he told me he’d already finished his turkey and greens. Said he had a couple of things he would cook after his morning workout. I know I’m kicking myself. I’m not really moved easily so every now and again someone knocks me over.

Well, maybe you will meet again, especially if he ends up getting a position with your company. Is your company a place where you two might run into one another?

I hope so…you don’t hear me saying that. I’m going there Saturday for breakfast (I know..I’m fast). You know I don’t think so because the company is so big. Funny thing, the area he’s interviewing with, my department have close relations. That’s a pretty big team so I’m not sure we’d chance running into one another…but you never know.
