People often refer to older single's as 'leftovers.' Well, I am no leftover, nor do I deserve to settle for someone that is.

Where's MY Waldo: The Search Continues

Yes, I once again let a short interim come between you and I but I’m still here. Still searching high and low for Mr. Right, and sometimes I must say, it’s a lot like looking for Waldo. Tonight’s search seemed to reflect that anyway. I have many good single friends but tonight I hung out with a girl that I’ve been friends with for a long time yet haven’t seen in awhile. It was great to catch up and just have a good time. We were on a mission though. The mission was basically, find my man! The problem? Well, you know what they say about location right? I may not have chosen the best place for the search but it seemed like a fun activity either way.

Yes, my reunited friend and I decided that tonight we should take our search party to downtown Salt Lake City, Ut where the lights of temple square were beckoning us to come. There were a lot of lights and a lot of people…couples in particular. Those who have been there know it’s like THE place for couples to go this time of year. Besides that, it’s THE place for families to go. There is always the chance however, that some single’s group will be there too…with some kind of available goods for the sharing! With that hope, my friend and I began our search with a cup of hot chocolate from the JB’s next door and a determination in our step.

We saw the lights, but we searched the sardine like crowd for some single men, any single men, to no avail. Every once in awhile a lone man with nice face would show up giving us hope. Then out of nowhere a girl would show up from behind. It was weird! We saw thousands of couples! And three single men. The creeper, the old man, and the guy who ventured to talk to us about a bag he found outside. Seemed a little sketchy to me but we humored him for a minute anyway. Besides that my red and white prince just seemed to be hiding way too good to be found on this particular December night. 

Despite not making any connections, I had a great time with a friend! I enjoyed some hot chocolate, I loved seeing the lights, hearing the nativity, and being outside on a beautiful night! We talked, we laughed, we searched, we sat in exhaustion praying that maybe he would just walk by, and we discussed the possibilities as we caught up on each other’s lives. It was a fun night! As for you Mr. Waldo…don’t worry…I’ve got my eyes peeled once again. It’s been a couple of weeks since my last date and I haven’t seemed to find any winners lately but I’ve enjoyed the small break as I’ve focused on reconnecting with me for a minute!  We will see what the future week brings!
