Getting It Where I Can

There ain’t no love life like that of a single mom. And I mean that literally. No love life. It’s extremely frustrating but also not the worse thing in the world. I figure that at this juncture in life I have been through quite a lot. And if it so happens that my next romantic encounter is a few months down the road (keep your fingers crossed for me, friends), I can deal with that. Is it going to do me any good to bemoan the fact that I would love someone special in my life? Certainly not. (Although with a glass of pinot grigio in me, I will do precisely that.)

Me: (Just standing there trying not to pee my pants.) If a guy at a bar said that to me, I would think he was a freak and walk away. But it was funny, sweet, and quite sincere coming from my boy. I have no idea where he comes up with the things that he says, but they are pretty damn awesome. So while my love life resides on the back burner, I’ll take my compliments from the...
