Greatest Compliment Ever

30 Aug

“You always have some guy on the backburner.”

OK, ok – if you read that statment as a standalone comment, it makes me sound kinda, sorta, well like a slut.  Or at the very least, someone with a somewhat active social life.  So let’s put this statement into context:

I needed a “me” weekend again. But before that happened, I had a ladies night after work on Friday. We had a good time – apps and wine before heading out for a nightcap.  Lowkey, but very fun. And I always like hanging out with my lovely ladies. At one point, one of these ladies asked me if I was dating someone and then followed it up with I must be because “you always have some guy on the backburner.”

Hmmmmm. Is that true?  Let’s evaluate.

I looked back at my life in recent years and more often than not I have been dating some giuy or another. This is a big compliment for me because growing up, I felt I was the ugly duckling – well up until I was a junior in college. I never dated in HS and started late in college.  In fact, I never kissed a boy until I was 17 – on the night of my senior prom. I was the late bloomer, one of the last people asked to go to prom, the one who was always the “friend” and never the “love interest.”  So now being the one known as a person always dating someone is a compliment.

I just want to be more. 

I just hope that one day that turns from “you always have a guy on the backburner” to “you have a great guy who loves you deeply.” And in my heart, I know one day that statement will come true.

    yes, it will. i swear it. me too, right? i have a date wednesday, but we just met in person on friday, and i, um, well. half of what i did had to be relayed to me by my bestie in a google chat over the weekend. so. i kinda can’t believe he wants to see me again? but he does. and he’s cute and he’s smart, and HIS HOUSE IS SUPER CLEAN. hmm. maybe i should have asked you to google chat instead of posting this here…

    Dear, you are not and never were an ugly duckling (how sad to think you felt that way growing up!)- you are beautiful just the way you are. Just sayin.’ xo

      Oh thank you my love. HOWEVER, if you’d like me to bust out the many pics of me with glasses and braces AND acne AND BAD BANGS that I sported as a child, you may think otherwise. Beautiful on the inside, yes, (hee hee), but it took some time for the outside to catch up a little. Wow – that sounds RIDICULOUSLY narcisstic of me. WHOA!
