Where have all the good ones gone?
Seriously, where are all the good guys?
(we interrupt this quarterly eruption of female emotions to give all of you who don't want to read my thoughts on men, love, sex and life the chance to click off the page. bye bye.)
I think I am a half decent catch. I'm smart, talented, have good manners, don't chew with my mouth open, and as far as Mormons go, I'm a good one. I do the right things. I go to church each week. I work hard. And in my humble opinion, I'm not horribly unattractive.
So why am I at home on a Saturday night watching "The Karate Kid?" (No, really, I am.)
Because I can't find a decent Mormon guy to save my life. Is it so much to ask that I find someone who has worked as hard as I have to be active in our religion? Has a job? Decent manners? And can carry on a partially coherent conversation without making me wonder if that thing he is doing is a permanent tic?
I get that it's harder over 30. (I just never imagined how much harder.) I meet guys on rare occasion. I just can't remember the last time I met a guy that had at least a third of the characteristics I'm looking for. I'm open minded. I'm not going to disqualify a guy just because he isn't perfect. But come on guys!
Case in point, I met a decent guy a while back. We had some good chemistry. He had plenty of good qualities, right up until he told me that he was only looking for a girl that was interested in a long term sexual relationship with him. Not marriage, no Mormon values. Just a long term sexual relationship.
That didn't go anywhere.
The next guy I met was fairly decent as well. I thought he was very nice and interesting, except all he wants to talk about is sports. And I can only talk sports for about 10 minutes before we've exceeded my knowledge of the subject. But I'm not naive, people. I'm a 33 yr old Mormon girl who needs to lose another 20 lbs. I'm not too picky so as to rule out a guy just because he can only talk sports. I ruled him out because he doesn't know the difference between a cliche and a Bible teaching. And I'm not talking he has a limited vocabulary. He really doesn't know the difference. And that's a problem for me.
I have a hard time believing only the women were smart enough and good enough. It can't possibly be that ALL guys decided on their 30th birthdays to just completely give up on everything they were taught before. There has to be at least 2 or 3 guys left out there, right?
It just frustrates me to no end to be looked upon as being "too picky" because I have the standards I was taught to have and believe in. But I'm not going to change or lower my standards. I will remain as open minded as ever on this subject.
And yet I spend another Saturday night at home watching a bad movie.
Recently, I've been picking up work as a background extra on various projects. In the past month or so I've worked on 3 different m...
