an adendum to Frustrated singleness

Ok..Church pool?...I am at the wrong church for that...no dating pool for me there, either way too young or way too old...I have heard of great singles departments that are full of singles my age at other churches in the area..sounds great right? It would be but I am not willing to leave my church...I feel blessed to be under Matts teaching and I am just not willing to leave, especially for that reason... I am not sure if I am more frustrated by the lack of intelligence that seems to be out there or by the fact that I am apparently way too smart. Don't roll your eyes just yet, I am really really smart and alot of times that is a hinderance. Especially in dating... I am not talking about spelling or mathematical genius here but I am talking just about being on the ball, a decent conversationalist, seeing the depth of person pretty quickly, picking up on the little things. I want someone who can hang with me. It is so hard to find because usually those guys are in a different "class" and pretty much out of my league. I am just speaking the facts here! I am deeply deeply frustrated. I see really stupid HAPPY people all the time. They are everywhere. " Ignorance is bliss" or is it??? Would I rather look at someone blindly and accept them for what they "appear" to be and be happy or look at someone with skepticism and dig for what they are not saying and search for the depth or lack of and continue to be disappointed when I don't find what I am looking for, and feeling even more frustrated because I wasted my time trying to find something that was just not there to begin with. I don't know. Anyway...that is where I am right now. So I keep praying for my hearts desire but did God create anyone who fits that bill?? I mean realistically...maybe not. I am not sure where I stand on that...so I keep praying for what may or may not be realistic, maybe I am the stupid one??? We will see. L.

You don't know me, but I go to the Village too. I stumbled upon your page from someone else's page. I just want to tell you that you are not alone. A lot of people don't get the smart thing... I guess it's intimidating for men. I feel your "singleness" frustration. I don't have any words of wisdom for you, but just know other women wonder the same things you do too.

Hi L-wishing you a good Wed. at work-- How is WW going for you?

Lisa Allen said...

honestly I havent been back since my trip. I think I have been afraid to face the scale but I am back on this week for sure I am not playing around I want to be at least 40lbs lighter by spring/summer.

Well-- I haven't actually ever signed up officially for WW and I really think that would help me stay more committed. BUT We just mailed our last final payment for my minivan and so that will free up some funds for me! :) I'm gonna have a heart to heart with my hubby about signing up. The "formula" to lose weight is so simple really-- THat core plan is the way to go-- I just need to gear up and just do it!! I wish we lived closer :)
