Prince charming is boring

12439336_10153543484543218_4813191091144930085_n I might have had too many wines last night. Red wines though, so obviously antioxidants = healthy. Right? Right! I’m not going to give you a full run down of my night, but I sent a guy a text and had to deal with funny messages that went nowhere. Let’s get to that in a bit.

So what stupid things besides messaging “Max” did I do? I signed up for RSVP dating website, or at least my sister did, on my behalf, because she’s great like that. So I sat there watching her make me a profile and I answered some of the dumbest questions to find my match. I honestly don’t understand how half of those questions finds you your soul mate, or at least something close to it. Well let me tell you about my matches, there were none. I’m either too picky, too weird, or we are in a serious man drought! Im not sold on the online dating thing yet, but I’ll stick it out and see if my perfect partner shows up. Today my inbox was quite full of potential matches, anywhere up to 70% matched! I chose one of them, just one. Just because he was the only guy that said he’s looking to meet people and doesn’t mind if it just ends up being friendship. And the others? Well I am ashamed to say I said no to a lot just from their photos, but attraction has to be there so I felt I had to, I was doing them a favour, cutting it off quick. No beating around the bush here! One guy I said no to because he said must be 170cm tall. Good on you for saying exactly what you want, but who the hell cares how tall someone is! Oh no you’re 1cm shorter than my ideal partner I can’t date you!

I’m looking forward to tonight, being out in the real world! Last nights internet antics were just too surreal for me. It just doesn’t feel genuine. I like to talk to people, I like to hear stupid things people say, I like to see the real side of people! Not from a profile that you can proof read to make sure you’re a real catch, not from texts where you can’t feel the emotion. Give me the real thing!

As for “Max”; Ive deleted the texts. He asked me what my facebook was, so I told him Lucy “Jane” the one and only! He said I’m cute (thanks!) and that he might be free during the week. I asked him his full name, he replied “official Ryan Gosling” Sure saying he was Ryan Gosling was pretty funny and yes he did give me his real name and I (weird) “facebook stalked” him (he obviously did it to me so why not!) but he said “maybe next week” seriously “maybe” fine, ok, I said let me know when you’re free.. And that’s that! I deleted his texts because I’m not stupid. So if he doesn’t text/ call me then fine, I don’t care how cute you are, I’m out. I’m still fine with texting a guy first, but don’t expect me to initiate conversation all the time. Who knows, maybe prince charming will come along and sweep me off my feet tonight, brandishing his sword at all the other potential suitors craving my attention, and we will ride off into the night on his horse because that’s reality! It is, trust me!


Play that funky music 

12540650_10153535265938218_2162204808513288281_n I did it! I crossed one thing off my list this year! Start learning to play the guitar! So I bought one! Yes I made a new years resolution list, but with the intention of no pressure! Just new things I want to try, like having sex with a random guy with no attachment. I’ll let you guess if that’s crossed off my list. Keep in mind, I’m smiling right now. And drinking wine haha! Let me tell you one thing about learning to play the guitar with no prior experience, it’s hard. Honestly I wish I had someone to teach me. I wish I could just pick it up and play a song already, but I can’t. It’s going to take work. I am extremely happy that I am teaching myself this skill! Self learning! Like everything in life. There is a lot of satisfaction in doing something by yourself! I’m not kidding, yeah I have some moments where I wish it was easier (like I wish life was easier sometimes) but in the end it’s all about learning. About improving yourself. About being the best you possible! So go ahead, pick up a new skill, why not, go for it!

Playing the guitar so far has taught me my fingers are small, and I really should cut my nails because they are really getting in the way! Other than that, I’ve tuned the guitar myself, and I know the strings (Eadgbe) honestly made up my own acronym for that ( eat a dick, good boy, easy) don’t ask, just don’t! The chords I know so far are; em e a & d. And I’m currently learning the song “swing low, sweet chariot”. Doesn’t sound like a lot but in one day that’s pretty good! C’mon, admit it, I’m amazing! Hey, self love never hurts!

On another note, I’ve made dinner & drinks plans tomorrow night with my cousin I hardly ever see but want to soo much! I seriously can’t wait to live closer to her! I’m definitely going to move closer to the city this year! And I did text “Max” about maybe catching up tomorrow night if he’s up for drinks with me, for more than 30 mins (that’s me playing on an earlier text from him) and he replied with “Lucy, what’s your facebook?” ok so I know he’s completely forgotten what I look like, you wouldn’t ask for facebook if you knew. But to be honest I don’t really care. I’ll tell him my facebook after this wine maybe, I like how I look (Obviously not in an up-myself way) I’m happy with me, so screw it. I’m gonna do it! Wish me luck xx
