A friend remarked yesterday that it’s time I started dating again. I nearly attacked him with my mocha. Seriously? Yes, he said, why not? You’re looking good and little M is no longer a baby. Uh, where the heck do I find the time to date? Make time, he said. Okay, here’s the deal. Between full-time work to to make ends meet and attempting to be the best mom I can be, there isn’t much time left for sleep or even to enjoy a meal outside. I wake up on most days feeling like I’ve been run over by a truck – twice. Dating? Excuses, just make the time, he said. And just where is this fantastic guy going to appear from? Just go out, he said. Ha ha ha. I go out to the grocery store or bakery, for work meetings or a quick run, that’s it. I don’t think I’ll meet anyone in these places. Trust me, I’d love to have a complete family. I’d love to have testosterone around the house. I’ve love for little M to have a man to look up to daily. I’ve love for her to have a sibling. I’d love for comforting arms after a tough day. I’d love to love and be loved. And, yes, I’d love to start dating again. But first I need to find the time, the energy, and then a good man.
