“why don’t you ever date anyone?”

So I have a friend that keeps asking me why it is that I never date any one. In all honesty it’s such an annoying question because for one I honestly don’t know the true answer and for two I would LOVE to “date” but I’m just not as lucky as I wish to be.

I believe in true love and soul-mates. I don’t want to be dating someone just because. I want something special! I know I’m young but hey, I want what I want. I would love to experience “puppy love”. I would love to have someone stay up all night just to talk on the phone with me, despite their burning desire to sleep. I would love to have someone to send me cute text messages and tell me I’m beautiful. I would love to have someone to laugh at my corny jokes, and yes they can be very corny, just because they know how much it means to me. I would love to have someone to fight over dumb stuff with and to make it all better with a simple “I’m sorry” and kiss on the forehead. And maybe someday I will get that, but until then I will just continue to imagine how perfect it will be when I finally get it.

So friend, if you are reading this, just for you I’m going to explore some different possibilities of why it is I never date. Now that I think of it, the main reason that don’t date is because no one ever asks me to date them. But I guess there are other reasons to. Maybe the reason that I don’t date is because guys don’t find me dateable. Maybe it’s because I push people away, which I don’t mean to. Or maybe I have just set my standards to high. Or it could be that I can never tell when a boy likes me so I miss all the hints. Or maybe it’s because I’m so shy, and don’t speak up when I like someone. But honestly, I really don’t know. But hey , I tried to answer the question.


And because I love you for reading this, here’s one of my corny jokes (: your welcome in advance (:
What do you call a pig that does karate?

One thought on “Undateable

  1. Tajee – I love that you are taking the time to figure out “what you want” instead of taking “what you get”. I believe that young people put too much emphasis on dating and having a boyfriend when there are so many other things in life that are worth your time and energy. When you find that special man who you can be yourself around and will love you for who you are and not what you can do for him – you will know. And you won’t be too shy to talk to him or him you because it will feel natural. In the meantime, date if you want to and don’t if you don’t but always be the best Tajee you can be because I’ve always thought she was pretty TERRIFIC all on her own. – Angela Jones
    And btw – I thought the pork chop joke was pretty funny 🙂
