defeated

so, after a weekend of much anguish, i've decided that i'm happy to be single for the rest of my life. i don't think i can handle much more of this. i quit singles wards, too. i went with kim yesterday to her ward... pretty bad. i'm going back to my "real" ward. its best for me. i'm going to continue trying to be more social & i won't argue with meeting people, but singles activities for old people, not my genre. and singles wards - no way.

Go to the young single adult activites. You are young at heart. Or go to some university events. Snag yourself a younger man. Just get one who is in graduate school!

Stay out of the 31+ "parties", snag a younger man is right. GRaduate school-perfect! On the practical side... men die before women anyway...younger is best :)

hayley...you are way too cute and fun to be hangin' with that 31+ crowd. I'm with holly. University wards have got to be better for the pickin'.

i'm not going to a university ward. i'm 28. people my age don't belong there either. its ok. i'm doing my family ward, where i'm still older than a majority of my ward, on their 3rd child by now... but i like the people. they're friendly. my bishop rocks. i have friends there.

i say go where you want to go. there are lots of ways to meet people and it doesn't have to be at your ward and especially not at 31+ freakshows. go where you're comfortable being, where you have friends. keep doing what you're supposed to be doing and things will work out for you. let me get out my scriptures so we can have a little preachy natalie time. the lord has not forgotten you! keep going to church, keep attending the temple, keep reading your scriptures. stop laughing when fat people roll down a hill. (that was for me.) :) i seriously loved what my r.s. president said "the things the lord wants for us are so much better than the things we want for ourselves." we just don't have the perspective that he does. he WILL send you the right person at the right time. he will remember you! keep having faith. okay, sermon over. sorry.

For the record, I wasn't suggesting a university ward, per se. Just some events. There is a diff. I agree, go to your ward.

I have probably told you this before but I got married once I stopped trying. I stopped stressing about being at the right place at the right time. I just went to my family ward and promised Heavenly Father I would attend the temple weekly. I started dating Ryan's within 3 months of chilling. You just do what feels right to you. You are such a pistol will get someboy great. I still think Emily's bro. would be a smokin' guy to go out with. get off your dead butt Emily.

Don't give up, girl. You will find a little sweetie who will adore you for the sweet, hilarious, awesome chick that you are!

you could always check out ldssingles.com? I think John Peterson is still single... lol kidding. But I'm a little serious about the website. My sister met her hubby there!

Miss Jones said...

i've done ldssingles. i might do it again. i've also seen "date rape" on there. we've emailed back and forth a few times.

Shelley said...

So hilarious. I hated when everyone else called him "date rape". Man I had such a crush on him in college. lol He's in Phoenix... ;)
