Another little disclaimer: this post mentions sex 😱don’t read this if you’re my mom, or my kids because you’ll be grossed out. It’s not graphic, but I just wanted to forewarn you.
The dreaded blind date. Your friend said, “he’d be great for you!” Or “He has a fantastic personality!” In your head you’re saying ‘No Way!’ Or ‘Maybe I’m doomed to be single forever’
Well, why not give it a whirl? Yes, it’s a bit out of your comfort zone, and you know it will be awkward at first. But he could be the one! And don’t judge the guy by the one that chose him for you.
Sometimes people in rocky relationships can see clearly what a great one looks like from the outside, but are blind when it comes to picking someone for themselves.
I met my husband of 25 years, 27 years ago. One of my friends fixed us up because he was her boyfriend’s brother. We double dated with them for the first couple of weeks.
Then Mark said, “I don’t need to go out with my brother all of the time.” 😂 We are very unconventional. We hit it off immediately. My kids are shocked by our story, but it doesn’t matter, because it worked for us.
You know when you watch movies or read books like The Notebook or Fifty Shades Trilogy you know it was hot and heavy from the start, and morally wrong on both counts, but it was amazing for them! It worked for them!
Ummm well, our first date (double date) we went skinny dipping in the dark. We were in our underwear, but still… don’t knock it ’til you try it! 🙄 No we didn’t hmm hmm on the first date, in fact it was several dates later!
Anyway, we’re the best of friends, literally! We don’t fight, we talk all of the time and have amazing sex. We may still let life get in the way, but when we do, it’s really really great!
The same person that fixed up Mark and I, fixed up Mark’s sister and a great guy our matchmaker was working with. They’ve been married for a long time as well. They hit it off, and spend tons of time together with their fur babies.
So, I’m no expert, but I just wanted to share this because so many people force love, instead of letting it happen with the one that’s meant for you.
Maybe let your friends fix you up, give it a shot! 🤷🏼♀️ Maybe they see something you don’t!
