Phew. That was close. I know you were quite concerned that The Meet Market was coming to an abrupt halt. The man who I thought I was pausing for didn’t quite work out, so as of April 8th, I was back on the prowl, probably with a little more gusto because I was burnt out on online dating and meeting a man organically is looking better by the day.
I picked April for community events because it’s prime time for them in Arizona. The weather is (usually) beautiful and the weekends are packed with events.
I volunteered, I ate and drank, I ran and I watched recreational sports leagues. All in large groups of strangers, many of them attractive men.
I was told I was smoking hot by drunk old men, but even that helps the swagga, right? I flirted. I learned that for flirting to turn into talking and connecting, you need to ask open-ended questions. I got a phone number of a Jersey Shore wannabe. I realized it’s hard to meet men when you’re with your mom.
And finally, in accordance with my NEW new attitude about dating, I remembered how fun it is to get out and do things I enjoy with friends or family and enjoy the gorgeous spring weather.
Meet Market 4, MJ 0. C’est le vie.
